Adobe has added new features to popular editing software, Photoshop for iPad and desktop. The company has also brought several updates to Adobe Fresco and some news about the new display panel.
Photoshop for iPad gets a new Healing Brush that allows people to fix specific sample areas by painting it with Apple Pencil. This is a feature that is already available to desktop users. This allows users to improve the texture, lighting, transparency, and shading of the pixels in the sample, and even apply settings and controls such as diffusion, blending modes, and brush angle.
There’s also a new Magic Wand feature that allows people to easily select items from flat backgrounds. People can also select some parts of the image based on hue and color, adjust them, and get a carefully selected result.
iPad users also get Canvas Projection, which allows them to share their fabric or collaborate with others. They can connect an iPad to an external device to showcase the fabric and even edit it live.
For desktop users, Photoshop includes new Sky Replacement enhancements that allow users to choose from more than 5,000 sky options. There’s a new Get More Skies option that takes people to the Adobe Discover site where these settings can be downloaded.
The new Transform Warp Bezier handles are a fine-tuned hotkey for edges and Split Warp points, and are useful for people who want to stretch or bend images in bottles and other such items. It also modifies new colors and opacity.
Photoshop also has a new Discover panel that makes it easy for people to find what they want. The + F (macOS) or Ctrl + F (Windows) keyboard shortcut helps here.
In addition, Adobe Fresco has received several updates, including some for applications and nerve filters. The Fresco on the iPad also has color-based adjustment layers.
Photoshop Beta will also be announcing this month, allowing Creative Cloud members to provide feedback to the Photoshop team for improvements.
Photographer Anna McNaught and digital graphics expert Jesús Ramirez will be showcasing all of these new features on Adobe Live on August 18th and 19th.
