On the Web : Configurator


Not the name of a new Gladiator, Configrator allow users of Photoshop CS4 to make their own panels, of tools. For example, you may wish to have a panel with just the re-touching tools or maybe you never use certain tools and would like to not show them.


The Configurator also allows users to run Flash movies within a panel, this means you can run tutorials right inside Phototoshop itself!

I was hoping that smart people would save panels and then share them, but it seems there are only three on Adobe Exchange… so far..
