For those of you who have the production version of CS3, hold down the Ctrl + Alt keys while selecting "About Photoshop" from the Help menu. You will see the alternate splash screen appear with the Red Pill image. Make a screen shot (Alt+Print Screen) and make a new image of it (Ctrl N, Ctrl V).
Now do a Level adjust on this Red Pill image and drag the shadow slider across to to the right. That is one really a nice tribute, Adobe!
Oh by the way, before you do the levels adjustment, go to the channels palette and click on the Green Channel, and the Blue Channel, and watch the red pill.

Also in levels, slide the highlight slider all the way to the left, and try moving the gamma slider in both directions!

Very nice tribute! Well done, Adobe. (I hope the tribute is even better in the Extended Edition.)

Awesome! Bruce is and will be sorely missed.

Often Easter Eggs are silly and a waste of space and resources. This one is not.

I got a new computer with Vista and loaded CS2 on it. Now EVERY time I start CS2 I have the registration dialog box pop up. I have filled it out 3 or 4 times just to see if it would take the hint and stop asking me to register, but……..NOPE. Just started CS2 up again tonight and got the same %$#@! dialog box.

Whattodo, whattodo?

But first, do a forum search on the subject. I’m pretty sure this has come up before so you might just find the answer in a relevant thread.

Right click on the photoshop exe icon and click on ‘run as adminstator’.

When it opens and asks you to register, register it again, and thats it. Aderan
