According to Think Secret, the newest version of Adobe Photoshop, Photshop CS 2.0, will ship next month.
If there is one thing I hate about digital image manipulation it is scanning in photos. Specifically it is scanning photos on a dirt scanner bed.
Whenever I am given an image, I rarely leave it as is. I always try to manipulate it some way to enhance it. I have a foundation of procedures that I use in nearly every image. Some images require me to use more than these, but virtually every photo I touch goes through the same process.
