Adobe Photoshop Review from Rick:
It's hard to believe that Adobe keeps finding ways to make the new version of Photoshop better than the last, but they've gone and done it again. If you use and like Photoshop 7, you're gonna love Photoshop CS.
As with any other version of Photoshop, all the same stuff is there that's in version 7, along with some new and improved things. I got this the day it hit the shelves and was immediately able to work with it and catch on to the the new features as well. As the hype suggests, the browser is much better than the one in version 7, and one other new tool that I really like is the color replacement tool.
This little number is right out of Photoshop Elements version 2. In Elements, it poses as the red-eye tool. In fact, in Photoshop CS, even though Adobe calls it a "color replacement tool", the icon in the tool bar is the same redeye icon that's in Elements. This is a Godsend. I used the hell out of this tool in Elements and I was thrilled to see it in Photoshop CS.
Now replacing color in anything is a breeze. Without getting long-winded here, everything about this new version is a plus. There's more layer options, also the ability to match color between images, and a whole lot more that space doesn't really allow going into.
You'll have to trust me on this. I do photography for a living and use Photoshop every day, and believe it or not, with this new version, Photoshop just got easier to use.
You can't go wrong with this one. Definitely worth the cost of upgrading.
Adobe Photoshop on is one of the best tools to edit web graphics. For some individuals and small companies affording it might seem difficult. Besides buying directly from Adobe you can purchase a legal and licensed copy of Adobe Photoshop from other software vendors.
You can often find Adobe Photoshop at a discount on eBay. A software store may have gotten surplus copies of Adobe Photoshop or wish to reduce their Adobe Photoshop inventory due to an updated version and will sell new copies of Photoshop at a reduced cost. There are also educational versions of Adobe Photoshop available for students and schools. If you already have a Adobe Photoshop product, product upgrades are also available for purchase. Before you bid on an auction, make sure that the Photoshop products says the product is "new and in a retail box".
