Photoshop boasts an extensive set of features that allow photographers, Web, and graphic designers to work more efficiently, explore creative options, and produce high-quality images for print, Web, and other media. Create imagery with easier access to file data; streamlined Web design; faster, professional-quality photo retouching; and more. Support for WBMP format enables optimization for display on PDAs and other wireless devices. Plus, Web designers can apply extra compression to images and exercise greater control over how transparency is maintained online with Photoshop's added output enhancements.
Photoshop delivers a comprehensive tool set that helps users meet both creative and production challenges. Its Healing Brush revolutionizes the process of retouching images. Remove dust, scratches, blemishes, and wrinkles effortlessly. Preserve shading, lighting, texture, and other attributes automatically. Photoshop's File Browser lets users locate, organize, and visually manage images quickly. You can even view EXIF data from digital cameras, including date captured, exposure settings, creation and modification dates, and more.
Native on Microsoft Windows XP, Photoshop provides even greater multiprocessor support as well as superior interoperability with other Adobe applications. The software also offers a robust painting engine that lets users create custom brush presets, simulate pastels and charcoal, and add special effects, such as grass and leaves, while its Pattern Maker plug-in creates patterns, including rocks and sand. Photoshop's Liquify plug-in provides enhanced control over image warping with zoom, pan, and multiple undo capabilities.

However, once you get a basic understanding of Photoshop's layers and basic tools, you can immediately get to work creatively modifying and enhancing your digital photos and doing graphic design. If you ARE new to Photoshop, I do recommend purchasing 3rd party training materials to gain an understanding of the features Photoshop has to offer.
Chances are, if you're considering forking out the considerable cost for this product, than you probably have at least intermediate experience with Photoshop already. The new features of Photoshop 7 are extremely useful. There are new tools for photo enhancements (such as the unbelievable healing brush) as well as illustrating tools that finally turn Photoshop (in my opinion) to a one-stop graphic design studio.
This comes with a fantastic training CD that takes you through the new features. It covers the new customizable paint brushes (which will blow your mind), the (soon-to-be my favorite tool) healing brush, the new file browser and all sorts of other things. This CD was so good, in fact, that I'm considering buying the whole training series for Photoshop.
There is a reason Adobe Photoshop is the omnipresent software installed on every serious graphic designer's computer. It's simply the best, and everything else is a cheap knockoff.Read more ›
You should get this product if:
- You want to learn the #1 photo/paint package that is an industry standard.
- You do not mind the massive learning curve.
- If you do not want something that you pop out of the box and use right away without spending weeks learning it.
- If you want total control over every aspect of paint/photo manipulation.
- If you do not mind it being a bit slow.
- If you do not mind it taking up a lot of hard disk space.
You should not get this product if:
- You do not need to learn an industry standard package.
- If you want to use something right away out of the box.
- If you do not need total control over every aspect of paint/photo manipulation.
- If you want a fast package.
- If you want to conserve hard drive space.
If you are looking for a paint/photo package that you can use out of the box and has lots of features then use Paint Shop Pro. If you are looking to learn the industry standard with the most features then learn and use Photoshop.
However I would like to finish this off by saying that I have worked for various multimedia groups that have demanded experience with this package and yet when it came to working for them they used 10% of this package and should have been using Paint Shop Pro instead. If you mention Paint Shop Pro in an interview then the interviewer will look at you sideways. What a load of mumbo-jumbo. They simply use this package because it is the "industry standard" instead of actually looking at a package that suites their needs. If you are an interviewer and someone says they also use Paint Shop Pro then you should actually listen to them for not toeing the official line.Read more ›
One word: awesome! As a photographer working mostly in digital these days, PS7 is just a dream come true for me.
The file browser (new in version 7, I understand) offers quite an array of functionality for previewing, sorting, and batch-processing images -- the sort of thing I used to use a standalone product to do. Being able to sort, rank, batch-rename, and rotate (i.e., picture shot in portrait but needs to be rotated 90 degrees to display properly) files in the browser has more than tripled my front-end productivity. The ability to export the browser cache information to CD, for example, also allows me to create "virtual" or online proof sheets -- another time saver, as well as an ink- and paper-saver.
The healing brush (also new in this version) is an exceptional tool, and I would go so far as to say that it, plus the file browser capabilities, have repaid my investment already. If you've ever retouched photos, and especially closeups of faces, where even the slightest variations in color or saturation will make the retouch even more glaringly obvious than the original blemish, you will not believe the results this tool offers. Operating something like a clone stamp tool, it samples pixels from the source, but then integrates them with the hue and luminance information surrounding the destination. The result is facial retouches that look flawless, as though the resulting skin grew there naturally.Read more ›
