Adobe Learning Resources wiki has added a new learning site for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Community Help. According to Adobe:

The new site takes the current online help—LiveDocs—and makes it more useful and interactive. You can still navigate to topics using links the left side of the browser.

But now, when you click a topic to read about it, you’ll find a Basics panel with Adobe documentation as well as a Learn More panel that offers links to tutorials, white papers, technical articles, and other instructional content. [via Photoshop News]

Lately it seems Photoshop News is offering a lot of assistance with Adobe and Windows products. There are several articles on troubleshooting when trying to use Adobe products with Windows Vista and a few on using the new Adobe CS3 product with Mac OS X and Windows XP.

Don’t you just love it when a product comes out of Beta?

John Nack on his Adobe Blog notes that as of March 16th (last Friday) over 500,000 people had downloaded the Photoshop CS3 Beta!

Now all that’s left is to see how many of these folks are just tire-kickers and how many will fork over the money for the actual upgrade. You see, that’s the neat thing about Beta versions. They’re like fishing bait. Once you use ’em and get used to the nice features, you get hooked and can’t imagine going back to anything pre-Beta.

(As a sidenote…I haven’t been a Beta-tester for CS3. I Beta-tested the Adobe Lightroom and was hooked from the moment I first got into it. I knew I’d purchase it no matter what the cost…and I did (fortunately for me, the cost was REALLY reasonable for a version 1.0. I’m knew to CS2 and with Lightroom by my side to accompany it, I know I’ll be fine…for awhile anyway.)
