Yup, the day it became available for purchase/download, the trials also became available – a first for Adobe!  I’ve already downloaded it and am starting to play with it for the first time (was not a beta tester).  Suffice to say, it’s pretty slick and yes, as I said yesterday, I am getting the upgrade!  Rather than show you screen shots and pore over the list of new features which has been done ad infinitum, I did a short video of some of the settings I like to adjust on an initial install.  So, here is that video straight from YouTube!

The Easter Egg had some cool trivia too. For instance – does anyone (outside Adobe) know how many babies were born to members of the team during production? WHo is the queen of the tenth floor? Is the wizard still there? If so, where is he now? Neat little nuggets just waiting to be discovered all in CS5!  Got the answers or your own nuggets?  Sound off in the comments! 🙂

Also, a final reminder about the April giveaway – some lucky participant will win an Expo Disc from the folks over at Expo Imaging.  Get your balance-themed photos in before midnight tonight to have a chance at winning!  Here’s the link:  April Giveaway

One thought on “It’s Official – CS5 has been released!

  1. What’s your favourite new features on CS5?

    I think I’m just hoping for less bugs overall. Fireworks CS4 was a joke bugwise.
