    You mean "Adobe Photoshop CS Macintosh"?



    Microsoft: "Your potential, our passion" - I wonder how passionate they are about your much greater potential if you use the mac?

    We all know M$ has Macs on the property .... they do develope software for them after all.

    But it IS amusing that their adwork would be done on a mac when there is a version of the same program that runs on Windows



    Though I'm sure the ad wasn't even produced in-house ...

    go to the page, "view page source" in firefox (or equivalent), search for "exif2".

    ... Or you can just drag the .jpg file into "TextEdit" and it will show you the file data in the first few lines.

    when you download from M$ website the official press release of the new actual campaigne and open this specific .jpg with an app as GraphicConverter (or PS? whatever), you can fetch some addtional "info" about this jpeg. these infos calles exifs. in this jpeg you'll find mentioning "Adobe Photoshop Macintosh"?



    you could publish such a jpeg with a DOS machine/app too, but they haven't?



    ok, not _that_ funny, but the "message" of this ad + the "making" of that ad with a Macintosh? me smile. but I'm an optimistic person

    I didn't know this. Gotta try it out when I get back home. Using PC at work. I've always wanted a quick way of finding out photo EXIF. Looks like this is it!

    the designers tried to 'hide' that a little by putting some pixelated windows 2000-looking folders there

    i actually liked the ad campaign on purely artistic/objective grounds.

    i was just really sad that this is the perfect sort of advertising for apple*





    *as in not the EXIF tag but the actual ad campaign, except the ad campaign is for microsucks
