Adobe Photoshop has always been one of the most popular suites available for editing photos, thanks to its array of useful features that allow users to correct color, resize, crop, and manipulate digital images. While this software is mostly geared towards graphic designers and professional photographers, it’s available to anyone who wants to edit their digital images. The available features become more and more exciting as new versions are released and the latest version, Photoshop CC (Creative Cloud) is better than ever.
Known for having a very friendly and responsive interface, Adobe Photoshop is much easier to work with than other similar existing programs. Every window provides specific functions and displays information that can be relocated, resized, or opened from a single menu.
In previous versions, Photoshop’s editing capabilities were limited to photos, but it’s evolved to the point where even 3-D images and videos can be created and edited. The software organizes the imported videos and pictures neatly and orderly on the window screens. Compared to the earlier versions, Photoshop CC 2018, now available from Learning Curve, has a lot more additional and improved features that are helpful.
Where users could not find, sort, filter, and import photos from Lightroom before, the current update has this capability. This search allows users to search via keywords that are based on subject matter in the pictures that were not manually tagged. The 2018 version of Photoshop CC features newly incorporated and reorganized brush presets. This new panel allows for grouping of the brush presets into various folders so that users can manage and access them quickly.
Another new feature is the stroke smoothing algorithm, which allows for the application of intelligent smoothing strokes. This works by entering a value between 0 and 100 when working with the Eraser, Mixer Brush, Pencil, and Brush. The 2018 version also includes variable fonts. These OpenType font formats support custom attributes like optical size, weight, slant, and width.
The new share feature allows users to share and upload their current documents and work to various services like Lightroom CC photos. Users of this software are also able to copy and paste layers inside and between documents. The commands Paste into Place, Paste, and Copy are responsible for the success of this feature. When users paste the layers in other documents with a different resolution, the layer maintains its pixel dimensions.
With all the features available in Adobe Photoshop CC 2018, the only limitation users will have, when it comes to editing digital images and videos, is their imagination.
