ITReviews.co.uk reviewed the Photoshop CS 2.0 and wrote:
“With Creative Suite 2, Adobe has upgraded the individual programs and beefed up the integration between them. Usefully, there is now a distinction in Version Cue 2.0 between ‘versions’ (historical steps in the creation of a document) and ‘alternates’ (alternative designs for a document). This means you can now create several alternates for a Photoshop image, place it into an InDesign or GoLive layout, then switch between the alternates using the Version Cue interface within those programs. Switching between alternates is hardly a one-click task but you do get to see thumbnail previews and annotations to help you, and it is easier than rolling back versions in the old Version Cue 1.0.”
