    Thanks for sharing! I come across that question all the time. Still… You would have thought that people stopped believing the “enhance this” fantasy. Oh well…

    Thanks for the post! “Enhance” is one of my biggest pet peeves.
    I’m sure you’re being tongue-in-cheek when you ask whether it’s “all just a matter of time,” but many people don’t realize that it is not merely a matter of time. As I explain in a blog post, Jerry Bruckheimer-style “enhance” is mathematically impossible.

    I really, really need that UN-crop function in PS CS5! Please don’t let a trifle like mathematical impossibilities stop you from gving your customers what we need.
