Mac Apps: Photoshop Squashes Bugs, SugarSync 2.0 Beta Adds New Features

SugarSync 2.0 beta‘Tis the season to receive updates! Adobe and SugarSync have pushed out improvements to its existing products this week, so let’s reward their bug-squashing efforts by downloading them now.

Adobe’s Photoshop.com Blog has announced yet another update to Photoshop is available on Thursday, this time to resolve a few bugs found in the previous version. The update is available by running Help > Updates from within the application.

Technically there are two Photoshop updates available, depending upon where you originally installed your copy. Photoshop 13.0.3 is for Mac users who purchased a traditional standalone or bundled suite, while Photoshop 13.1.1 is for those Mac and Windows users taking advantage of Creative Cloud.

In either case, the updates fix an issue where certain PSD files would fail to open with layer FX applied to layers, and also squashes a bug that caused the application to crash when opening certain EPS files. Finally, Retina systems will no longer crash the app when the Navigator panel is displayed.

Switching gears to the SugarSync 2.0 beta for Mac already in progress, the company has pushed out the first update to its latest desktop sync client, updating the design as well as now allowing the Mac Dock icon to be hidden — something that bugged us enough about the first release to make us switch back to the pre-beta version.

SugarSync 2.0 now includes a device filter for viewing only files on a specific computer, smartphone or tablet, and shared folders can now be accepted from within the Desktop app — no more having to do this via email or web app.

Last but not least, the update adds right-click contextual menus, overlay icons on the virtual drive and the ability to run the app in the background, all very welcome improvements that finally make SugarSync 2.0 beta worth using full-time.
