Photoshop Update Tweaks Type, Color

Photoshop Update Tweaks Type, Color -- Adobe recently released a Photoshop 5.0.2 update that improves the image-editing program's type handling and color management. The auto-kerning feature of the Type tool now uses correct kerning values, while a new anti-aliasing algorithm makes small text more readable. (For a discussion of type and anti-aliasing, see "Better Typography Coming to a Screen Near You" in TidBITS-403.) Photoshop 5.0.2 also includes a Color Management Wizard for configuring color management settings; those settings also now specify that untagged RGB files not be converted to the sRGB color space when opened. (Adobe offers a technical guide describing how Photoshop 5's new color engine works, which differs significantly from previous versions.) The free update is a 3.9 MB download. [JLC]
