Adobe counts down to Creative Suite 5

Adobe has announced that its pant-wettingly expensive suite of image manipulation tools will be updated on April 12th.

Creative Suite 5, known to its close freinds as CS5, includes the ubiquitous Photoshop, Quark Xpress klller Indesign, WYSIWYG web designer Dreamweaver and a whole bunch of other creative design tools.

Adobe is staying tight lipped about new features in the latest release, but one extraordinary new filter in Photoshop has been given an early outing.

Content Aware Fill is capable of removing or replacing large blocks of image area with a scarily intelligent algorithm which can only properly be explained by watching the video below.

Be patient... the really impressive stuff starts about 90 seconds in.
