Full icon set replacement for Creative Studio 3 based on CS3 retail product box design.

What’s missing is document icon for Contribute CS3 and few more small CS3 apps. I’ll do second part as soon as Adobe releases more CS3 apps to public.

Note: Some CS3 apps have custom icon applied to them. If app icon didn’t change after installing .icns files, do a Get Info on app and delete its custom icon by clicking on icon at top-left of Get Info window and hit Delete key. Logout or force-quit Finder for icon changes to take effective.

Update: Windows version ported by Eli (the-ace), you can get it from http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/53728408/

As requested, here’s a replacement icon for NewsFire.

To see how fast Mac Pro Clovertown is, check this Quicktime movie of Cinema 4D 10.1 rendering a slightly complex scene (scene is a demo included in Cinema 4D package);

cinemarendering.mov (2 MB)

In menu extras on the top-right of screen, you’ll see 8 different percentages and you can see that Cinema 4D took full advantage of all 8 cores.

I’m really loving the speed improvement but Photoshop CS3 doesn’t seem to be truly taking advantage of all cores so the speed improvement isn’t as dramatic as Cinema 4D rendering but it’s still pretty acceptable to me. I just need to upgrade from 2 GB of RAM to 3 or 4 GB to make Photoshop really happy.

To save your time from recreating Mac OS X’s drop shadow setting from scratch in Photoshop, here’s style set you can download and double-click on file to install into Photoshop’s Style palette window. Pick a layer you want to apply this style to and click a style in Style palette window. The settings are 98% accurate to Mac OS X’s drop shadow.

In the interview I talked a bit about Aldus Superpaint. Here’s screenshots of Aldus Superpaint that I used a long time ago:

I still miss this app :(

I’ve waited for almost two years for this Mac Pro.

Bought along with two 23 inch Apple Displays. Total price: $6,700. Very expensive but will be worth it for many years.

About time to bury my Powermac G4 Quicksilver. It’s dying :(
