IceflowStudios | Photoshop CS6 | Top 5 Features | Video
Below post is by Howard Pinsky , from his site .iceflowstudios.com
1. CONTENT-AWARE PATCH TOOL
In Photoshop CS4, Adobe introduced Content-Aware Scale, a new technology that mysteriously allowed you to scale your image without distorting the main subjects. In Photoshop CS5, Adobe kicked it up a notch with Content-Aware Fill. This new feature gave users the ability to remove objects from their images, allowing Photoshop to fill in the selected area with what should have been there instead.
2. CONTENT-AWARE MOVE TOOL
Ever since Adobe introduced Content-Aware Scale in Photoshop CS4, more and more tools have been benefitting from this incredible technology. In addition to the Patch Tool now including a Content-Aware option, Photoshop CS6 also includes a brand new tool. The Content-Aware Move Tool.
3. OIL PAINT FILTER
For years, I have dreamt of a semi-decent Photoshop filter that would allow me to turn my photos into a painting. I’ve scoured countless number of tutorials, and while I was able to achieve decent results, they just never felt ‘right’. Well, my friends, Photoshop CS6 not only brings a new filter to the table, but many of our requests have finally been answered. After trying out the new Oil Paint filter, I can honestly say, this is my new favorite filter. It is so simplistic, yet the results are brilliant.
4. LAYER STYLES ON GROUPS
Traditionally, if you wanted to add the same Layer Styles to multiple layers, you would have to add them to one layer first, then copy/paste them onto the other layers. Now, in Photoshop CS6, you have the ability to add Layer Styles to a group! This means, that all layers within that group will benefit from those Layer Styles!
5. CAMERA RAW
Camera Raw in Photoshop CS6 has been updated! Camera Raw 7 brings new adjustments that allows users to retrieve more information than they ever have before. The Clarity adjustment has also been improved to bring back more detail, and leaves out those nasty halo effects! Finally, the adjustment brushes have been updated to include more adjustments, including noise reduction!
