The professional image-editing standard
Adobe Photoshop V7.0 software, the professional image-editing standard, helps you work more efficiently, explore new creative options, and produce the highest quality images for print, the Web, and anywhere else. Create exceptional imagery with easier access to file data; streamlined Web design; faster, professional-quality
photo retouching, and more.
Quickly locate and organize images: The new File Browser lets you search for images visually rather than just by file name. Using easy-to-view thumbnails, you can quickly organize and retrieve images from your hard drive, external drives, CDs, and disks directly within Photoshop. The File Browser provides metadata about the images displayed, such as date created, date modified, and Exchangeable Image File (EXIF) information from digital cameras. You can rotate, batch rename, rank, and sort your files, as well as manage image folders.
Heal Images: The Healing Brush lets you effortlessly remove artifacts such as dust, scratches, blemishes, and wrinkles. The Healing Brush automatically preserves shading, lighting, texture, and other attributes when cloning from one layer or image to another. The related Patch Tool lets you be even more precise by
working with selections.
Output to the Web with ease: Web output enhancements in Photoshop V7.0 and ImageReady™ V7.0, a separate software program included with Photoshop, allow you to make Web page elements transparent by simply clicking on the color you want to knock out. With the new dithered transparency option in Photoshop and
ImageReady, you can achieve full or even partial transparent effects. When optimizing images for the Web, you can reduce overall file size by giving the areas you want to emphasize, vector art or text, a higher quality than the other image areas. And Photoshop and ImageReady now let you preview and save for Web in WBMP format, commonly used for displaying images on PDAs and wireless devices.
Create workspaces: Arrange a preferred layout of palettes and save it as a workspace for future use.
Customize your tools: With Photoshop V7.0 software, you can customize any tool and save your preferred settings as a new, unique tool for easy access.
Automatically correct color: The new Auto Color Command provides even more reliable color correction than Auto Levels or Auto Contrast.
Get creative with paint tools: The painting engine lets you simulate traditional painting techniques with dry and wet brush effects, including fine art media such as pastels and charcoal, or use brushes to add special effects such as grass and leaves. Using the new live preview of your brush strokes, you can adjust dozens
of settings for shape, tilt, spacing, scatter, jitter, diameter, texture, shading and other attributes and save those settings as custom brush presets.
Automatically generate eye-catching patterns: With Pattern Maker plug-in, you can create realistic or abstract patterns such as grass, rocks, and sand simply by selecting a section of an image.
Secure images before sharing them: Photoshop now offers complete support for Adobe Acrobat® V5.0 security settings, allowing you to create more tightly protected Photoshop PDF files before sharing them with others online or adding them to Adobe PDF workflows.
Save time and money when printing: Picture Package enhancements let you print to different page sizes; add labels or text to each image for printing, such as copyright notices and captions; print more than one image per page; and output images as one flattened document or to separate layers.
