I got Adobe Photo Shop Extended because I really enjoy photography so I wanted my photo to look their best. I am really pleased with this product and how much it helps make your photo have a professional look to them. Photo shop is also good with manipulations well so those that enjoy doing really creative photography. I also like how in CS4 you can work on images that you created in flash and add different type of edits to them. Another thing that I like about Photo Shop CS4 is how easy it is to use; you can easily find your way around and apply the enhancement that you want in your photograph. Photo Shop allows all kind from enhancements like exposure, brightness, clarity, vibrance and a whole lot more. I also like how there are videos on the Adobe website to help you learn about all the different things you can do in Photoshop. Plus, there is also a student store where students and teachers can buy the education version of Photoshop for about half price. Anyway, Photoshop is one of the best photo editing products out there and is well worth the cost but for those that can't afford it you can always get elements.
