RE: OT: Photoshop CS4 upgrade overpriced



Very nicely done Keith and thanks for sharing. This could be a nice tool to exploit. I purchased CS4 Extended yesterday and took advantage of the extra discount for LR 2.


Is the choice of Orange and Green separations the default or is that user selectable? And did you actually use those pigment colors? What governed your choice of the O & G if they are user selectable?

It is available on the extended version.   Try Edit/Convert to profile.   Here is (what may be) the first gumprint made from PS4-rendered negatives made from CMYKOG  (CMYK + orange + green) separations. 


This is on a 16x24" wood panel photographed with oblique light so that you can see the detail.  I've started to sand down the surface to reduce brushstrokes and pimples.  Looking closely one can see areas where the orange and green layers are distinct.

As far as I can tell the Standard edition doesn’t but it could be available in the Extended version but that’s only a guess.

I seem to recall reading that CS4 was going to incorporate some kind of hextone separation tool, similar to CMYK but with added channels.  Looking for this now, I can't find any mention of it.  Does any CS4 user know anything about this?

I was wrong in my previous post--You can upgrade Photoshop only from any version of CS for US $199.  Check out Adobe's webpage.    Charles  Portland OR
