    Adobe Photoshop has long been considered the professional image-editing standard among graphic digital artists worldwide,adobe CS2 is certain to cement that reputation even further with its array of new features. Artists, creative professionals, photographers, and industry professionals will find that the workflow and image customization enhancements will be worth far more than the price of the upgrade.
