So the wait is finally over and the long awaited Photoshop CS5 is now shipping 🙂
Over the past few weeks we’ve seen a number of sites posting up mini tutorials to give an idea of what is going to be coming in this latest version so I thought I’d add a few links here on the blog for you to check out:
- NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals) – CS5 Learning Centre
- The Russell Brown Show
- A.J. Wood
Looking at all the enhancements in this latest version of Photoshop, Adobe really have ‘hit the ball out of the park’. With so much added and improved it would be hard to single out any one favourite new feature but if I was pushed I would have to say ‘Content Aware Fill’ as a ‘wow’ factor but the new improved ‘Refine Edge’ just blows me away.
The main thing I’m real excited about with this latest release is how I can see my workflow time decreasing significantly. I certainly don’t see myself doing anything ‘new’ such as giving my photographs a different look; it’s more being able to get that final look alot quicker.
So from what you’ve seen so far what’s your favourite enhancement / addition? Come to think of it will you even be upgrading or are you getting everything you need out of the version you’re using at the moment? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this latest Photoshop offering from Adobe and also if you’ve got any requests for tutorials then please feel free to make use of the comments section below.
Oh and before I forget, if you want to give it a ‘try before you buy’ you can download a full version here which will last for 30 days.
Bye for now 🙂
