5 of Photoshop's Most Important New Features

Photoshop has been evolving at a breakneck pace lately, with a number of groundbreaking features expanding and even completely changing the ways in which photographers approach editing their images. If you have not had a chance to catch up on everything that is new yet, check out this helpful video tutorial that will show you five of the biggest changes, what they can do, and how to use them. 

Coming to you Unmesh Dinda from PiXimperfect, this awesome video will show you five of Photoshop's latest and greatest features. Of course, the feature generating the most buzz right now is Generative Fill, and for good reason, as it has a lot of potential to change how we work with photos of all genres. However, one I have really grown to appreciate is the new Contextual Taskbar — that small panel that pops up and displays relevant buttons and settings based on whatever you are doing at the moment. If are anything like me, no matter how much you work in the program, you forget where some of the functions are simply because there are so many of them all around the window. I have quickly grown fond of the taskbar, as it does a good job of surfacing most of the tools I need at any given moment so I don't have to go searching for them. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Dinda.

Wow. Just wow. At age 81, I am bowled over by what I can do. That which was impossible in analog becomes easy and easier with successive upgrades that nowadays seem to occur weekly. I am just a hobbyist now and no more than scratching the surface of the newest tools, but they are awesome and getting awesomer. Like many, I am captivated by Generational Fill.
