The 2019 version of Photoshop CC comes with many new features which enhance how editors work with photos. It includes interface changes, which represent a way of working that is more logical than before. Here is a list of some of the best features in Photoshop that is sure to get image clipping service providers excited.
With Content-Aware Fill, editors can patch a selected area with texture found near that area in the photo. This option is in the Edit menu of Photoshop.
Selecting an unwanted signboard from a building photo and opening the Fill dialog by pressing the Shift and Backspace keys, uses the previous method, resulting in that erased space being filled with parts of that building. This is clearly not appropriate for the scene – after all, would a building’s window lie separated above the building itself?
Instead, if the Content-Aware Fill is chosen from Photoshop’s Edit menu, the user will be presented with its dialog box. There, they can erase the area they do not want in the fill, which is basically the photo.
An entirely new feature gives editors the ability to turn any shape into one ‘frame’. They can drag any photo into that frame from their computer to populate it, and that picture will automatically be scaled to fit. Those who do photo editing services can convert a text layer too into a frame, which enables them to fill that text using images or texture quickly than what was previously possible.
Adobe Photoshop has had the capability to align layers and distribute these, which is particularly beneficial to designers. Now, editors can even out the space amid differently sized objects, so that they can accurately distribute them.
Changes to Undo Function
Using the Ctrl–Z key combo or Command–Z hotkey steps back through the history, instead of toggling the previous undo command back and forth. The user can still toggle by pressing and holding down the alt or option key. This might disconcert diehard users of Photoshop, but it makes sense. The Redo and Undo items in the Photoshop Edit menu will correctly tell the user what they are going to redo or undo when they choose it.
The latest version of Photoshop CC also has an increase in speed, with tools like Export As and Select Subject performing considerably faster. On Windows systems, startup time is almost as quick as on an Apple Mac.
