Icon Replacement for Adobe Photoshop CS3 Beta.

Apparently the current icon for PS CS3 beta is final and will not change for release according to a brief email I got from one nice Adobe staff. So I asked PS CS3 to put some pixels together to make a temporary icon, she agreed.

I love PS 7 icon for its eye and len but I also love PS CS1/2 icons for its simplicity so why not merge them both together with Photoshop CS3’s blue background color.

Also included is a PS CS3 document icon.

Photoshop 3.0 to CS3 Beta Icons

An interesting icon change for CS3.

I’m going to say it calmly; I certainly hope it is not the final icon design.

Temporary (?) Official Graphic for Photoshop CS3 Beta

I’d like to preview one of my most favorite things about PS CS3 Beta; the new palette system.

One expanded side, one collapsed side

As for bugs/glitches that bothered me a lot in current photoshop version, they only fixed 6 out of around 20. I believe they’ll eventually fix some more before final version but so far it’s looking solid to me. Is it solid enough for daily use? I’ll find out soon.

5 weeks fuse wire.

I’ve planned from the very beginning that we will have a nice explosion mark graphic after 5 weeks has been reached but until recently, last minute design decision changes forced me to remove it altogether but you can see how it’s supposed to look like here in my weblog.



I’ve been insanely busy with two large but exciting projects, one being MacHeist which is around 7-8 weeks worth of works almost 6 hours everyday and another one is big software project which I’d rather not announce yet until company OK’d it.

I’ve also been working on other two small projects during my free time, one was for my brother’s real job HOVRS. My brother and I did website design and various graphics for their newest sub-website titled HOVRS Purple VIP with exclusive contents only available to Purple VIP members and another various stuffs that you may/may not see in the future.


At midnight, there’ll be another post showing a graphic that couldn’t make it into 5th weeks MacHeist web design due to recent design changes.
