Photoshop CS4 is the 11th version of Adobe's venerable and industry-standard imaging application. It's hard to imagine that Adobe can continue to make large changes to Photoshop. It seems that just about everything but the kitchen sink is already in the application, but once again, Adobe has found ways to take a mature application and improve it. In this review, I'll give you a first look at the new features you'll find in Photoshop CS4.
Ease of Use
First up, and a Windows only feature, is support for very large files thanks to running in 64-bit (with a 64-bit version of Windows). Mac users will have to wait for a future release for 64-bit power.
Photoshop CS4 also supports 3D acceleration via OpenGL compatible graphics cards for faster performance with 3D operations.
User Interface Changes
Photoshop CS4 has changed the main work area and now supports tabbed documents (Figure 1). Here you can see the major changes to the UI. The main tool bar across the top of the window has changed with many of the most common tools, like selection, zoom, rotate, and views placed on the title bar for immediate access.
You can also choose to float one or more windows if you want to view images in the CS3 and earlier style, or compare images.
The panel area has also changed and includes new quick access for common actions. Panels can viewed in a docked manner or floating as before, but the small sidebar with History, Settings, Type, and Layer Comps is gone. You'll now access these via the Window menu, or if you use them frequently, you can add them to the dock.
The company Adobe, known for the popular professional graphic editor Adobe Photoshop, introduced a new version of the program. Adobe Photoshop CS - abbreviation is deciphered as Creative Suite - among other things has a number of new tools, directly useful digital photographers. The program has a somewhat modified interface, are improved some functional modules, but most important, appeared several tools designed to significantly easier for users to process digital photographs.

The method applies to the folder _TABLETKA_1 (!)
1. We put a trial version (no need to enter any serial key in the beginning).
2. Disconnecting from the Internet (just disable the network connection).
3. Launching Photoshop. When you start window will appear asking you to enter a serial key. Run the keygen from the Master Collection and throw it key (keygen - Adobe.CS4.Master.Collection. Final.Keygen. XPRJ-Master-of-Devils!).
4. In the program directory (c: \ Program Files \ Adobe \ Adobe Photoshop CS4 \) copy the patched file from the appropriate folder (x86 for 32 bit systems, x64 for 64 bit systems).
5. We rejoice life (a memorable include network connections back).
(the method was tested on VISTe x86 SP1. everything works perfectly, even after 2008)
In the folder "more drugs" are still patches that were found by other participants of the forum. The efficiency of which I personally have not tested
