Adobe Photoshop CS3 is a graphics editing program originally released in 2007. With Photoshop, the user can create graphics, adjust or manipulate photos and color line art. Adobe Photoshop is the world's leading graphics program and is considered a necessity for anyone interested in computer graphic design work.

Photoshop CS3 has a slew of improvements and adjustments that have led to a more effective experience. The update provides stability and fixes some issues with random crashes.

Advancements in the Bridge CS3 program allows users to better compare photo collections to more easily compare images to find the ones that stand out.

CS3 makes adjustments to the ever-popular Clone tool. The Clone tool allows the user to virtually paint pieces of one image elsewhere in the same image or on an entirely different image. The Clone Tool palette is introduced, which gives the user options to adjust and refine the clone brush.

Refine Edges is an entirely new dialogue box introduced in CS3. Refine Edges allows the user to preview how a selection will look when placed over different-colored backgrounds. The edges of the selected image can be refined and adjusted, so that it blends more seamlessly with the rest of the image and doesn't look "fake" or out of place.

Quick Select is a very popular addition in CS3. Instead of manually tracing areas to cut out or adjust an image or shape, the user can click on a portion, and the program will select similar-colored shapes. There is a certain amount of adjustment involved, but it is a much quicker method of selecting pixels.

CS3 at last allows users to turn a color photo into black and white in a direct manner. There are settings that allow the user to adjust the intensity. This is a feature long-requested by those using the program for photography work.

Auto Align is a new feature in CS3. This function allows a user to take two similar images and overlap them. Two photos of a family taken in succession can be connected, and the user can pick which facial expression to use from each and seamlessly blend them into one optimized image.

Smart Filters are another popular addition. Before CS3, filters caused a permanent change to a layer. Smart filters allow the user to go back and change the filter's settings, saving a lot of hassle.

Adobe put in improvements that appeal to designers, photographers and enthusiasts. The update clears up a few annoying glitches and makes the CS3 experience complete. The download is pretty quick and the update is relatively hassle-free. The update is worth it for the crash fix alone.

Pros:

- The update will help avoid crashes that can erase hours of hard work.

- The Print menu is improved

- Management of layers is optimized

Cons:

- The program requires a lot of free disk space

- You will need to disable your antivirus when you install the update, which can be a pain.
