If you’re in the Bay Area and are interested in the technical details of some of Photoshop CS3’s advanced features (3D, auto-alignment, etc.), swing by the Apple campus (De Anza 3, specifically) tomorrow night for a meeting of the Silicon Valley SIGGRAPH chapter. Refreshments roll out at 7:30, and the talk begins at 8pm. It’s five bucks for non-members, free for students. Details below.
Ashley Still and Pete Falco of Adobe will give an overview of some of the new features in Photoshop CS3 Extended, including movie paint, 3D, and automatic alignment and blending of multiple images. In addition to demonstrating these new features, they will provide an overview of the Photoshop 3D Plug-in SDK that can be used to extend the current capabilities. There will be ample time for Q&A.
