    First, is there any good reason to keep CS2 or can I safely uninstall
    it? Secondly, can I install the program on my laptop as well as my
    desktop? Last month, I attended a workshop in Death Valley, and it was
    very convenient to have PhotoShop Elements on the laptop. It would be
    much more convenient to have CS3 on the laptop. Thanks for any help.

  2. The only reason to keep CS2 is if you need ImageReady since ImageReady
    thankfully and finally is dead with CS3. As for the installing on a laptop I
    believe you can provided you don't use it on both machines at once.

    ImageReady had one tiny, handy, easy to use feature: slice on guides. With
    one menu item you could specify any number of rows and columns, and then hit
    "slice on guides", images ripped to a folder with the html.

    How can one do it that easily in CS3?

    You can use Export-Zoomify ....

    Thanks to all who replied. Well, I guess I can safely remove PhotoShop
    CS2 (I had already removed Bride CS2, as that kept opening when I
    double-clicked a raw file). Thanks again.

    well I just got CS3 and was going crazy looking for stuff that was in CS
    thinking they moved it to another menu
    Well they were the but hidden unless you go to bottom and say show all menu
    or you can customize the ones you need often to stay on in preferences

    one thing drives me insane so far is no option for
    "set selection to layer mask"
    I used to use this frequently

    I have to keep the channels palette open now and do it there
    ANYONE?? maybe a keyboard shortcut I am not knowing?

    PS has zoomify for a long time. It ain't the same as what I described.

    yes it is there

    pull your guides out from the rulers
    choose the slice tool (not the slice selection tool!!!)
    at the top bar is a button >>choose slices from guides

    I never used CS2 version I went from CS to CS3
    I was unhappy to lose image ready but all of it is now inside CS3 no need to
    switch and so far it seems no features have been lost

    some are hidden now

    one thing I can no longer see is the EXPORT as SWF (FLASH)

  9. Not a good enough reason to keep the thing.

    Imageready actually would place the guides for us - just select the number
    of vert and horizon line and it did it. Admittedly, it was good only for
    regular sized slices, but I found a lot of use for it.
    It is gone. Believe it or not, Adobe just plain kept it out of CS3. Here is
    their quote, "If you want to create a SWF format animation, use Adobe Flash,
    Adobe After Effects, or Adobe Illustrator"
