Re: CS2 Benefits????
In addition to other plusses, the batch processing is supposed to be light years ahead of CS. The only problem for those who have Adobe Creative Suite; you will not be able to upgrade only the Photoshop CS portion of your Suite. According to Adobe with whom I spoke earlier, the only way to upgrade to Photoshop CS2 is by upgrading the whole Suite or upgrading from an earlier version of Photoshop.
I am pursuing this with ASMP to see what they can do. Meanwhile, if there are others who are in this same boat, I would encourage you to call Adobe and complain. Microsoft, Norton, and others allow you to upgrade portions of their suites without upgrading the whole suite.
