Photoshop CS3 GIF

Cool stuff in a big box By Ko Maruyama
It's going to take me the rest of the year to fully go through all of the materials that came in a huge, 15+ pound box from Adobe today.  Yes, 15+ pounds.  I couldn't believe it, so I had to weigh it.  It's chock full of goodness, including Photoshop CS3 which can deliver animations - some new, some old.

Here's the OLD way of creating an animation using Photoshop CS3.  Actually, I suppose that this is a new way, considering that I'm using CS3, and the new Animation window.  However, you could create something similar to this in previous versions of Photoshop, but you'd have to switch to Image Ready to do it.

In Photoshop CS3, all of the animation frames that you may have used in Image Ready are packed into Photoshop - no more switching back and forth.  Additionally, there are a ton of new video features that you'll find in Photoshop CS3 as well.

So yeah - I made this little animated GIF to show it opening up - but getting all of that stuff out in the stop motion animation would have taken too long, so 5 frames ought to do it:
