The latest release of Photoshop, version CC (for Creative Cloud), is loaded with delightful features including 32-bit HDR toning, Camera Raw improvements such as healing with a brush and a new Radial filter, intelligent upsampling, better painting in 3D, shake reduction, and improved Smart Sharpening. In this series of seven tutorials, I’ll show you how to take advantage of all these new and improved features.
Beginning today, I’ll release one new tutorial each day for the next seven week days. If you’re too excited to wait, or if you’d like to work along using the provided sample image files, I encourage you to purchase this “What’s New” series for $9.95. Since these tutorials will interrupt the regular Thursday Photoshop Workbenches, I promise to restore the Workbench as soon as this series is over.
If you’re still on the fence about moving to Photoshop CC, you may find it helpful to read my blog post titled “How Adobe’s Creative Cloud Will Affect Existing Customers.” For those who have made the leap, but haven’t yet installed CC, pop over to Adobe’s Application Manager, install the CC updates, and follow right along! This first lesson will show how to take advantage of 32-bit HDR toning in ACR.
