Photoshop is considered one of the leaders in photo editing software. The software allows users to manipulate, crop, resize, and correct color on digital photos. The software is particularly popular amongst professional photographers.  One of Photoshop's most powerful capabilities is layers, which allows images to be rearranged under and over each other for placement.
