Microsoft has released updated beta versions of its HD Photo Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop CS2 or CS3. The plug-in can open and save files in Microsoft's HD Photo format, also known as Windows Media Photo.
Versions are available for both Macintosh OS X 10.4 and Windows Vista/XP.
The 738K Macintosh download and 807K Windows download include separate plug-ins for Photoshop CS2 and CS3.
According to Bill Crow's HD Photo Blog, the new versions feature a redesigned encoder options dialog box along with other interface improvements.
The Mac version provides thumbnail support for HD Photo files in the Finder, which is not otherwise currently available.
