Photoshop 6.01 Updater Returns
New version fixes workflow issues

Last month we wrote about Adobe releasing an updater to Photoshop 6. Soon after, Adobe removed the updater from its download area. Well, today it's back for the Mac. The new version adds minor enhancements to Photoshop 6, mainly dealing with workflow and usability issues. These include:

  • The Enter key brings up and dismisses the preset picker at the current mouse location.
  • Double-clicking a brush in the picker selects the brush and dismisses the picker.
  • The current brush is always highlighted in the preset picker.
  • The current brush indicator always displays the brush size.
  • The First Brush and Last Brush keyboard shortcuts (> and <) work regardless of whether the current brush exactly matches a preset brush.
  • Image clipping paths in EPS and TIFF files saved from Photoshop 6.0.1 have been modified so that software, such as QuarkXPress, is able to read them.
  • ImageReady is able to save and preview animations under constrained memory conditions.
  • There is no slowdown of performance when files in the Open Recent list are unavailable.
  • Batch file naming works correctly.
  • Export Paths to Illustrator retains path scaling.
  • The Contextual Menu system extension no longer needs to be installed in order to use the toolbar flyout menus.
  • Photoshop 6.0.1 will remove old Photoshop temporary or scratch files if the operating system has failed to do so.
  • Selecting a single color in Color Range now works correctly.
  • New Japanese character map (CMap) files are included to resolve conflicts with ImageStyler 1.0 and PageMaker 6.5.2 Plus.
  • Showing and hiding edges for a selection no longer requires pressing Command-H twice.

The new update requires Photoshop 6.0. For more information, visit http://www.adobe.com or, to download the file and learn more, visit http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/new.html.
