A while back I bought a set of Photoshop actions that mimic cartooning and painting on photographs, and they do work. Some actions work better on some photos, some actions work better on others. Here's a representative example of a few.

You may have seen the video offering a sneak peek at Photoshop CS5's Content-Aware Fill. I've done some experimenting on my own, and my review of this feature is: good in certain circumstances, and a good start in others.

So: be on the lookout for bad Photoshoppers to use this to get rid of Ginny and add Hermione to pictures of Harry Potter.

I'm working in Photoshop CS2 here at work, and it seems that at least one thing I use a lot has changed, and I can't figure out where to do it in this version. In all the PS versions I've worked with up to and including the first CS, you could select everything on a layer by ctrl-clicking on that layer in the Layers palette. In this version, it now seems that doing that just acts like the shift-click and makes it active along with whatever layer you're on. That doesn't seem too clear, anyway, but all it does is highlight that layer in the Layers palette and does not give me the marching-ants thing around the elements I want to select.

This is different from Select All, which selects the entire canvas and only collapses to the individual elements if you do something like nudge them a pixel in one direction or another. This adds an extra step to what should be a simple stroke or fill or something. ARG.

I can't figure out from the help any way to select all the elements. They can't possibly have removed this entirely, can they?
