Adobe Updates Photoshop to 7.0.1

New version gets bug fixes, performance improvements By Dave Nagel
Adobe has released a free update for Photoshop 7. The new version, 7.0.1, fixes a number of problems found since the release of 7.0 back in February. The update affects Macintosh and Windows versions.

All of the fixes in 7.0.1 can be categorized as relatively minor, including a few performance enhancements, bug fixes and changes that bring certain functionality back in line with previous versions. Changes include:

  • Type layers are no longer rasterized unnecessarily.
  • Incorporates a previous release of the fix for the Targa file format module, which saves alpha channels the same way previous releases did.
  • Enhanced File Browser performance.
  • A fix to color management policies that no longer asks users to save newly opened documents unless edits have been made.
  • Total ink now defaults to 300 percent.
  • Fix for JPEGs saved in the CMYK color space.
  • Fix for TIFF files with LZW compression.
  • Picture Package no longer locks up when using custom page layouts.
  • Better compatibility with older Macintosh G4 machines.
  • Fixed a problem that occurred when using Photoshop on a hard drive that contained extended characters in its name.
  • Metadata is better preserved in certain JPEG files.
  • Now defaults to the last saved directory when saving new files.
  • Changing monitor configurations no longer causes problems while Photoshop or Adobe ImageReady are running.
  • Fix for working with certain large 16-bit images.
  • Fix for a layer style problem that occurred when editing styles from PS 6 in PS 7.

Other fixes are also incorporated into the release. The Photoshop 7.0.1 update is free for users of version 7.0. It can be found at
