Yesterday we were surprised by Adobe with the announcement that there will be no CS7 photoshop, and that all efforts will be focused on the new Creative Cloud Suite , which will include Photoshop CC , leaving aside the current business model and betting on the monthly subscription as a system of payment and license verification.
Regardless of the debate that is taking place about whether or not this new business model favors the client, what is clear is that the new version of Adobe’s cloud software will arrive in June to stay, so let’s see the main news Photoshop Creative Cloud :
Creative Cloud is the definitive leap towards a monthly subscription system for the entire Adobe suite, which will have as main advantages online storage, configuration synchronization and collective participation in works and projects.
We can make a change in the configuration of one of the programs and that it is synchronized with all the computers where we use it or if we need it, work collaboratively and exchange comments while editing a document, for example.
Adobe has confirmed that a permanent connection will not be necessary, and that the only thing Creative Cloud will require is a connection once a month to verify that we are aware of our license payment.
Photoshop CC: Main News
Completely Renewed Smooth Focus : New Smart Focus Tool with which Photoshop CC will analyze image data to maximize sharpness and minimize noise and halos. A new range of options will allow us to modify the images in order to achieve richer textures, more defined axes and, in general, more detail.
In this video we can see how it works:
It is one of the most anticipated features, but forget about miracles or the idea of focusing a totally unfocused image. We will see what it is capable of.
Intelligent resolution increase : it will allow us to maintain the detail and sharpness of the images if we need to enlarge it to print it. A new tool that promises to maintain edge detail and reduce noise and artifacts created by enlargements.
Camera Image Stabilizer : This feature will attempt to save jittery photos that we give up due to camera shake, either from insufficient shooting speed or from using a high focal length. Camera Shake will analyze the path of camera shake and try to correct sharpness.
Editable Rounded Rectangles : Improvement focused on designers with which we can create rectangles and shapes in a more comfortable way, allowing us to resize or republish them once created. Web designers can also export the CSS code to a file that they can use later.
Adobe Camera Raw 8 and layer compatibility : significant improvements in the new version of Camera Raw that will allow us to apply new effects to images, thanks to the advanced correction brush, radial gradient or the tilt correction tool.
It is interesting that Adobe Camera Raw can also be used as one more filter, allowing us to use its main tools such as clarity, noise reduction or color temperature at any time and on any layer of the document.
