High praise - no problem.

I have an ASUS TF101 tablet. The resolution is 1200 x 800. I have sets of photos in 1680 x 1050. Converting them to 1200 x 800 was tedious in CS5. Many, many times I have thought, 'Why can't I tell PS the resolution I'm after and have PS snap to that dimension?'
I can zoom in close to give me the precision to move the border to exactly 800.00 and not leave it at 799.4 or whatever or go to the Image > Size dialog and make the edit there.

Imagine how I felt when CS6 gives me the opportunity to specify the target dimension and when I hit the C key, the crop is on its way to being done. I can move the corner handles to resize the image. When I double-click in a corner area or click the check mark, the resulting size is 800 x 1280. The new cropping tool is worth the upgrade fee. Way to go Adobe!!
