Feature

Today’s Photoshop CC 2016 update includes speed boosts and a few new tools to get the job done.

Adobe’s main goal getting out this update will be speed based. Improvements were made in the installation time, brushes, fonts, and content aware fill. In the next few updates will all be focused on making the program a bit faster considering how large is has gotten.

One warning though for those with plug-ins, you will have to reinstall them all. As its a full new version of Photoshop they will be erased. Preferences and presets will all be migrated over to the new version.

Check out adobe’s articles on the new features!

Selecting and masking part of a photo

A new space and tools for making selections and masking out parts of your photos. This gives a few more options for making a smooth mask that you might otherwise have trouble getting such as hair or clothing from portraits.

Crop and rotate freely with Content-Aware Crop

Crop and rotate as we’re used to, but now with content aware filling. Any blank space from rotating your photo or extending past the edge of the photo the software will automatically attempt to fill in.

Adjust a person’s facial features with Face-Aware Liquify

Liquify tools now have face recognition in them to make adjustments for portraits without as much work. Beyond turning someone into a chipmunk it should be a useful tool for adjusting portraits where needed.

Match fonts from an image

While less of a photo tool for us this is still useful if you’re working with graphic design on a project. If you’ve ever taken over a project you’ll frequently get asked to continue with a style from a previous work. Then you’ve got to identify a font by sight or using an image uploader. This does it in photoshop to use fonts similar to what you have installed and options from Adobe’s typekit online.

 

The update is currently live as of now, the file is somewhat large as its a new version so it will take a fair bit of time to download.

 They all had dreams. They all had family. They died for us. Arlington National Cemetery is a heavy place, I can't help but think about all the pain and suffering when presented with row upon row of a headstone representing a fallen soldier and my mind boggles that this still happens today. On this little planet hurtling through an incomprehensible ginormous space - some people think it is ok to kill each other. :( p.s. You should google Cornelius H. Charlton - his story is interesting p.p.s My grandfather is buried in Arlington- my Mom's father was instrumental in designing and implementing early radar systems for the Navy in WW2. Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 200mm and f/3.2
 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO http://photorec.tv/fb to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND
 I love traveling with other photographers on #mckaylive trips. Kari, a trip participant, noticed this line of trees and shared her perspective with me. I had glanced at them but hadn't noticed how nicely they lined up when standing at a certain spot #teacherbecomesthestudent :) We had a great day leaving behind the cherry blossom crowds for a much quieter walk around #HarpersFerryWV. And a visit to #BolivarHeights a much fought over hilltop during the civil war and the site of the largest surrender of Union troops - over 12,000 men surrendered to Stonewall Jackson. *  Captured with the #Panasonic #GH4 and #1235mm lens
