How about adding a REAL selection tool? Why does PS selection tool only let you select a small square for editing that cannot be resized? I use my FREE paint app to crop then bring my picture back into PS- Most of the time I wonder why I am paying $100's for PS.

Which tool are you referring to?
Photoshop has many selection tools, none of which are limited to a square.
