Enjoy smoother rotation, panning, and zooming Simply click and drag to smoothly turn your canvas for distortion-free viewing at any angle. Gracefully navigate to any area of an image with ultra-smooth zooming and panning. Photoshop CS4 leverages newer computer processors for dramatic boosts in performance.
Bypass cropping and retouching with intelligent Content-Aware Scaling Use revolutionary Content-Aware Scaling to automatically recompose an image as you resize it, smartly preserving vital areas as the image adapts to different aspect ratios.

vertical photos to create seamless panoramas using Photomerge®
technology. Combine a series of shots with different focal points
into a single color-corrected image with automatic correction for
vignettes and lens distortion.
