Yesterday Adobe announced a host of new features for Photoshop CS6, and Creative Cloud users. Actually these new features are available only for Creative Cloud members, but you can still get a look at what they are here even if you don’t use the service.
Making feature specific updates for Creative Cloud members is nothing new. Adobe has been doing this for about a year now, and the fact is, this is Adobe’s plan of attack. More and more features will only be made available to people that have signed up for, pay for, and use Creative Cloud.
The Photoshop update features 12 new items that really look pretty tasty, but at a $50.00 a month membership fee you’ll need to ask yourself if they are really worth an additional $600.00 a year beyond the price of Photoshop, and or your upgrade cost.
The new features for Photoshop CS6 Creative Cloud Members include:
- Smart Object support for Blur Gallery
- Smart Object support for Liquify
- Conditional Actions
- Pen tool enhancement
- CSS export for faster web design
- Import color from web files
- Improved 3D effect
- HiDPI and Retina display support
- New and reengineered design tools
- New reflections and draggable shadows
- Erodible brushes
- Content-Aware Patch
