    According to Imagine FX fantasy & sci-fi painting magazine's review in issue 38 these are the upgrades in CS4,

    64-bit support (allocate more than 2 GB of ram to PS)
    GPU accellerated
    Canvas rotation tool
    Content aware image resizing
    Adjustments panel for editing
    Open GL and Shader model 3.0 support
    Non-destructive masks
    New depth of field
    3D editing capabilities
    Camera raw facilities


    Most upgrade features are in the Extended version, which is a version of Photoshop geared towards 3D work than painting (my use) or image manipulation (Rattler's use). If you're not doing any 3D work (or doing it outside of PS) it seems rather like a waste to pay extra for the Extended version with 3D shaders and options you won't ever be using. All the 2D image manipulations are in the base version of CS4.

    I believe I have that color & B/W adjustment abilities on Photoshop 7 (not elements 7) and it's from 2000 or so, it's just not in the same format of the single panel you show but spread over a couple panels however "I can still get there from here".

    Anyway, cool that you got it. Did it install OK?
    Have you used it with a Wacom or other pen tablet? Does it have any start up probs with a pen? I've heard one person on the digital painting forum say it was bad for them but they may have had a bad PC or something cos nobody else has mentioned it.

    I have the 6 x 8 Wacom Intuos tablet. It ran me about $260 with shipping off Ebay brand new. I hate my mouse for anything but the net. The settings for the pen and buttons on the tablet are customizable to certain actions that you program them to do like adding a new layer, open the brush dynamics panel, etc.
    I was going to get the wide screen model but it's huge and I didn't wanna take up that much desk space! lol!
