Photoshop supports HD Photo format

HD Photo, this is th new name of the image format from Microsoft that they want to replace JPEG, PNG, Raw and GIF. It was previously known -at launch time- as Windows Media Photo and it is now fully integrated into Windows Vista.

Adobe Photoshop will support this format through a plugin to donwload from a Microsoft web site. For the time being, this is only a beta version for Windows, but a Mac version is under preparation.

The format should be natively supported soon (within 12 to 18 months!) by digital camera manufacturers. It works with both Photoshop CS2 and CS3.

PS: Really! everybody is trying to stick HD to anything that remotely looks like image-related, even when there is no objective reason for it (apart from the media attention magnet it becomes).
