Noteon.PSDFileType
Native Photoshop (.psd) - While creating, editing and tweaking images, it isbest to save all your files in Photoshop’s native format, which is the defaultfile format for newly created images. This encoded format (.psd) is the onlyformat that supports all available Adobe Photoshop image modes (Bitmap,Grayscale, RGB, CMYK, etc.), channels and layers. This lets you use all theprogram’s editing tools, commands and filters. It also retains all the data untilyou decide to save a copy of the file in some other format for eventual use. A file can be opened in its own format, then converted to a Photoshop (.psd)document by using the SAVE AS command under the FILE menu, then select-ing PHOTOSHOP format. Using a slightly different filename will preserve theoriginal file and save the copy to Photoshop format for the working process.

What’s new with CS2?
Timesaving fle handling with Adobe Bridge
Simplify le handling with Adobe Bridge, the next-generation File Browser, where
you can process multiple camera raw images at once; resize, rate, and labelthumbnails; quickly review images in Slideshow mode; search metadata; andmore.
Multiple layer control
Select and move, group, transform, and warp objects more intuitively by clickingand dragging directly on the canvas. Easily align objects with Smart Guides.
Smart Objects
Perform nondestructive scaling, rotating, and warping of raster and vector graph-ics with Smart Objects. Even preserve the editability of high-resolution vector data from Adobe Illustrator® software.
Spot Healing Brush
Effortlessly retouch photos — including 16-bit images — in a single click with theadvanced power of the new Photoshop CS2 Spot Healing Brush.
One-Click Red-Eye Correction
Instantly neutralize red eyes with the one-click red-eye correction tool, which sup-ports 16-bit images and lets you set pupil size and darkening level.
Color Replacement Brush
Color Replacement Brush replaces color of painted area with foreground color overlay, not repaint. The ‘Contiguous’ setting replaces colors that are contiguouswith the color immediately under the pointer 
Blur Filters
The Blur lters soften a selection or an entire image, and are useful for retouch
-ing. They smooth transitions by averaging the pixels next to the hard edges of 
dened lines and shaded areas in an image. Blur lters Apply blur effects usingnew blur lters: Box Blur, Shape Blur, and Surface Blur.
