Adobe Photoshop CS3 (v.10, code named "Red Pill") is the version of the popular raster graphics editor included with Adobe Creative Suite 3. It was released by Adobe Systems in April 2007 for Macintosh and Windows systems.

New featuresEdit

  • Native support for the Intel-based Macintosh platform and improved support for Windows Vista
  • Revised user interface
  • Feature additions to Adobe Camera RAW
  • Quick Select tool
  • Alterations to Curves, Vanishing Point, Channel Mixer, Brightness and Contrast, and the Print dialog
  • Black-and-white conversion adjustment
  • Auto Align and Auto Blend layers
  • Smart (non-destructive) Filters
  • Mobile device graphic optimization
  • Improvements to cloning and healing
  • More complete 32 bit / HDR support (layers, painting, more filters and adjustments)
  • Faster launching
  • ImageReady web export features built directly into Photoshop and no longer a separate application.

Other changesEdit

Photoshop CS3 was the first version to be distributed in DVD format,[1] and the last to support Windows Vista RTM and Mac OS X Leopard on PowerPC Macs.

End of supportEdit

In July 2017, activation servers for CS3 applications were shut down. Registered users who wished to continue using Photoshop CS3 after that date could use their valid serial number to download a new installer from Adobe that could be activated without contacting a server.[2] In December 2019, Adobe stopped providing CS3 downloads entirely.[3][4]
