Photoshop CC Tutorials Covering The New Features
I’ll cover some of the major upgrades, and you can also read below to get see a birds-eye-view of all the changes and for links to resources offering more information.
This new feature in the Liquify filter automatically identifies eyes, noses, mouths, and other facial features and then makes it easy to adjust them. Great for retouching portraits or distorting faces.
This new check-box in the Crop tool allows Photoshop to use Content-Aware technology to intelligently fill in the gaps when you rotate an image or expand your canvas beyond the image’s original size.
Photoshop can now analyze, identify, and match Latin fonts from an image or photo, taking the guesswork out of finding the perfect font for your design.
Photoshop returns two sets of close matching fonts; the first is a list of fonts installed on your machine, and the second, fonts that are available for download on Typekit.
This feature allows you to apply alternate glyphs for specific characters directly from an in-context menu when you highlight your text.
Select and Mask Space
This new dedicated workspace helps you make precise selections and masks more easily than ever.
Use tools like Refine Edge Brush to cleanly separate foreground and background elements. This new feature replaces the old Refine Edge and Refine Mask.
Additional New Features Not Covered In The 5 Photoshop CC Tutorials
Better collaboration with Libraries
Manage distribution of read-only Creative Cloud Libraries so they can be used by team members, but not changed or deleted.
Updated Libraries panel
Find the assets you need faster with the new filtered search of Adobe Stock and icons that make it easy to identify licensed Stock assets.
Everyday tasks, accelerated
Photoshop CC opens documents faster and delivers greater responsiveness. Plus, Content-Aware Fill is up to 3X faster with even better results, and the Font menu shows lists of fonts up to 4X faster.
Now, you can duplicate a layer or layer group into other artboards, quickly change artboard backgrounds, and view artboards with transparent backgrounds.
A new checkbox makes it really simple and easy to embed color profiles in PNG or JPG files.
And so much more
