Adobe Photoshop is universally hailed as the best image-editing program in the world. The program is used to edit photographs, paint digitally, and to create graphics.

Adobe Photoshop 7.0 includes a revamped paint engine. The brushes are now configurable, able to simulate artistic effects such as watercolor.

7.0 also introduces tools for retouching, such as the Healing Brush, which make it easy to remove imperfections ranging from freckles to stains on a photo.

Auto Color is a new function enabling the user to balance an image more easily. This function only works in RGB mode, but generally performs better than Auto Contrast.

Photoshop is essential for anybody with an interest in digital imaging, whether they be photographers or illustrators. This update is a small file that will make the Photoshop experience complete.


- Fixes up the minor bugs and perfects the 7.0 experience.
