Adobe has launched Photoshop CS5, which has incredible advances in content-aware fill, as well as improvements in complex selections and HDR. Other new features include new paint effects, automatic lens correction (which makes adjustments for barrel distortion, chromatic aberration and vignetting), native 64-bit support on PC and Mac, puppet warp (for rearranging individual elements within photos), and the list goes on.
Along with Photoshop CS5 will come Camera Raw 6, which should mirror the improvements in noise reduction and sharpening that we’ve seen in the Lightroom 3 betas.
Lots of folks are foaming at the mouth to get their hands on Photoshop CS5 after seeing the sneak peek into the content-aware fill demo. While you can’t download it yet, you should be able to do so by mid-May. You can pre-order/upgrade on Adobe’s website now.
