- 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

- ImageReady is able to save and preview animations under constrained
- 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
