  5. Photoshop – Using the new Crop tool
    Cropping is one of the most common operations in Photoshop. So it’s only fitting that the Crop tool has experienced a quantum leap in CS6. In this movie, watch how to preview the angle of your image to confirm that your crop is plumb. You can revisit a crop any time you like, so you never waste effort. And by default, the Crop tool hides pixels instead of permanently deleting them.

    I got to speak with lots of professionals and networking was great and now I’ve even got the help I need to make my work something worth selling.
