CS4 has one extremely useful new feature: the crop function now allows you
to correct perspective by dragging each corner of the crop individually.
This is ideal for straightening out slightly tilted shots, especially
hand-held photos of artwork or buildings.
Many simple paint operations are still missing, but as an image
processing program Photoshop is unsurpassed. GIMP is really
not good enough, IMO.
