Photoshop gets Content-Aware Crop tool

Photoshop gets Content-Aware Crop tool

I use Photoshop nearly every single day. Most days, I'm just using it for basic tasks like cropping and resizing images to put in articles. Some days I'll use it for editing photos that I've taken for one reason or another. While all of the basic tools are nice, there's one tool that has become my absolute favorite since it was released, and it's about to get even better.

Now the fated day has arrived for Android users as the two roll out the same features to the more than 300 million Acrobat Reader users on Android.
