Guide claims multiplied speed in Photoshop

A new guide suggests ways of improving performance in Photoshop CS5, while MailWing attempts to organize and archive messages from Apple's Mail client.

diglloyd has posted a guide to enhancing performance in Photoshop CS5, Adobe's just-released imaging software. The software is said to behave better simply as a result of switching to 64-bit code, but adding extra RAM may make major improvements in some cases, along with properly tweaking cache tile size. It may also be more efficient to leave the program running so it doesn't have to re-allocate memory, the guide suggests.

MailWing sorts, saves Mail messages

Coder Luther Fuller has released MailWing, the new version of an app formerly known as Mail Saver. The software links with mailboxes in Apple's Mail client, moving messages into Finder folders chosen by a user. Files can be opened with Mail or Quick Look, and a Dock menu provides faster access to folders and app commands. MailWing is normally a free download, but the Mail-Safe Archive disk imaging tool will stop functioning after 30 days without a $10 registration.
