I had an idea for symmetrical editing in Photoshop.

There could be a feature where you place a special guideline in the middle of the two objects you want to manipulate symmetrically, and then anything selected on one side of the guideline will be symmetrically mirrored on the other side of the guideline. For example, let's say that I have a picture of a person, and I want to move their eyes closer together or farther apart by the same amount. If you put the guideline in the middle of the person's face and then select around the left eye, an identical mirrored selection would be made on the other side of the guideline (around the right eye). Then, you could either nudge both eyes in the same direction, nudge both eyes closer to the guideline, or nudge both eyes away from the guideline.

In addition, any edits done to the picture on one side of the guideline will automatically be mirrored on the picture on other side of the guideline.
