   The heavy weight photo editing program is back with a brand new version 6.0 aimed to surpass the featuresí abundance found in the previous version 5.5. More web-oriented than every other picture editing software, Adobe PhotoShop 6.0 is the long awaited update to Adobeís best seller software. Over the years, the San Jose, California founded company imposed itself as the standard and unavoidable photo software both on PCs and Macs. It has become in the professional graphics world, as standard as Microsoft Word is today: every designer, printer, photographer, and artist uses this software to edit digital pictures. Itís so common that itís now even bundled with digital cameras or scanners. Since 1982 Adobe didnít stop constantly improving Photoshop to make it the most powerful, flexible, creative, and feature rich photo editing software. Iím sure if Eastman Kodak was told that one day everyone would be able to edit color photos in order to remove unwanted objects, enhance contrast, boost clearness, remove red-eye effects, cleaning blurs, white-up teeth, change the color of an object, erasing scratches and dust, turn negatives into positives, change the color levels, or more, heíd surely have loved the idea and would want to experience it. All of this (and much more), that seemed totally impossible only twenty years ago, is now possible within reach of everyone through Adobe PhotoShop. So letís now see how PhotoShop 6 has been improved.
