Hasselblad just made a very exciting announcement for very rich, very enthusiastic photography nerds.

Photoshop's Magical New Crop Tool Automatically Fills In Missing Parts Of A Photo

Regular users of Photoshop have probably come across this problem before: After you’ve straightened a photo by slightly rotating it to one side or the other, your ability to then crop the image is severely limited without having to clone in missing corners.
