    Photo Gallery is now on Microsoft Update


    This is a special shout-out to our BETA program participants!

    At our last estimate, the Windows Live Photo Gallery BETA was installed by nearly 3 million users worldwide. Our BETA testers give us feedback, report bugs, and even yell at us when we make stupid design decisions – all of which helps us delivery high-quality products. Thank you to you all -- our BETA testers rock!

    We recently deployed Windows Live Photo Gallery 2008 via Microsoft Update – If you have Microsoft Update enabled on your PC and had the BETA installed, then your BETA build should have been upgraded to the final release build (version 1308.1023).  Go check it out! If it wasn’t auto-upgraded, you can either launch Microsoft Update and do a scan for new updates, or go back to  and manually upgrade to the final release build.

    HD Photo plug-ins for Photoshop released


    In case you missed it, our friend, Bill Crow, announced the availability of  the HD Photo plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop on his blog. 

    "HD Photo plug-ins for Adobe® Photoshop® CS2 and CS3 have been officially released for both Windows and OSX.  They're available now from the Microsoft Download Center. 

    Here are the separate downloads for Windows and OSX."

    The release has received lots of press in the blogosphere.  Perhaps you've seen it here or here or here

    In Bill's blog post, he goes on to say: 

    "Take a look at previous blog entries here and here.  I also gave a presentation at WinHEC 2007 about HD Photo Best Practices.  While targeted primarily for hardware developers, the presentation contains a lot of information that may be useful for Photoshop users that want to best optimize their encoder parameters.  You can find a copy of the presentation here:  WinHEC 2007: HD Photo Implementation Guidelines."
