What happens when you go back to the drawing board and redesign a successful product? If you were to base your answer on some of the movie sequels that have come out, the results would not be good.

If anything over the years characterizes doing photography digitally, it is Adobe's Photoshop--now the standard mainstay application at the heart of a digital darkroom. I can't remember now just how many years ago I was introduced to Adobe's yet-to-be-released PhotoDeluxe 1.0 at a Comdex computer show. I was impressed with PhotoDeluxe at its beginning...
