        [Oostrom, Jerry]  PWP uses the windows color management system,
which is probably not as good as that of Adobe. It also misses the selection
tools such as magic wand, freehand, rectangle etc. Actually, I think it
misses all those selection tools and as a result I miss them. Perhaps the
cheaper editing tools compared to the full version of Photoshop also miss
"magic wand select similar" etc. , which I noticed can be handy to select
white dust specks and subsequently blur these specks. However, you may never
have a need for that. PWP has a lot of things going for it besides the
price: (here a few that I use: ) All edits (= a lot) can be in 48 bit, you
have a warping tool which e.g.enables you to correct distorted lines in
architecture photography, you have a barrel distortion correction tool (I
have cheap lenses), you have a chromatic aberration correction tool (I have
cheap lenses) and with every valid remark that you have you get a new
version of the executable sent to your mail-address (at least thats what the
programmer tried to do), with a correction that works. But I read that
Photoshop Elements is only $99 and has (Adobe?) CM, whereas PWP almost costs
$80, ash Windows CM and has a more complicated user interface, for me
especially true with masks.
