New Features in CS: (Adobe just released PhotoShop CS2!!)
Color Matching: The new color match feature reads the color statistics of one image or layer and applies them to another. It can be used to quickly achieve a consistent look in a series of shots, such as in fashion or commercial photography, or to match color schemes in photos shot under different lighting conditions (useful for web images — maintain a consistent look).

File Browser: Preview images and useful for organization

Automatic Crop and Straighten: Scan multiple images  Run Crop and Straighten  Each image is automatically cropped into its own new document.

Color Replacement Tool: Change the color of any area of an image, while retaining original texture and shading.

Huge Document Support: Create images up to 300,000 by 300,000 pixels, simply enormous!
