Apple CEO Steve Jobs peppered his opening keynote address at Macworld Expo San Francisco 2002 with jibes about how we are all waiting for Adobe to ship a Mac OS X-ready version of its market-leading image-editor Photoshop. And, during the keynote, Adobe finally showed an early beta version in action.
Adobe's executive vice president of worldwide product marketing and development Shantanu Narayen (pictured) demonstrated a carbonized Photoshop, which included glowing icons and a new spell-checking feature.
He also demonstrated now shipping X-ready versions of After Effects 5.5, and previewed the forthcoming GoLive 6, LiveMotion 2 and InDesign 2 – which will ship soon.
In a related statement Bruce Chizen, CEO of Adobe, said: "Apple has done an incredible job in quickly making Mac OS X the best operating system for users and developers. Adobe is dedicated to being the premier developer of Mac OS X applications this year."
