In the above video, Photoshop Principal Product Manager Bryan O’Neil Hughes demonstrates selective editing using dodging, burning and sharpening in Photoshop CC.
You can use dodge and burn tools to only affect shadows, mid-tones or highlights, which make these tools much more effective than they used to be. Likewise, Smart Sharpen is a more powerful tool than it had previously been.
Adobe Photoshop evangelist, Terry White, posted a new video that shows off four hidden gems in Photoshop CC. While not very useful to my everyday workflow, I had no idea any of these existed. Check out the list below and you can watch the full tutorial in the embedded video above.
- Layer names now support 256 characters allowing you to auto-generate many more assets on a single layer
- Fill command lets you insert a tree as a pattern into images
- Fill command lets you insert a frame as a pattern into images
- Converting a background into a layer by just clicking the unlock
Photoshop CC allows you to merge multiple images at different exposure values and create an HDR image using Camera Raw. Watch this video for a short tutorial on how to get started processing HDR images in Photoshop.
Adobe has finally launched Lightroom mobile for iPad after teasing the app for the better part of a year. Before we get to the features, some readers will want to know up front that it is only available for Creative Cloud members. If you are part of the Photoshop Photography Program or a full Creative Cloud subscriber, Lightroom mobile is available to you at no additional expense.
Lightroom mobile now allows you to sync your iPad with your Lightroom 5 desktop library. Lightroom mobile uses Smart Previews to allow you to make non-destructive edits on your iPad, which will then sync to your desktop library.
I wish Adobe would just go ahead and make this a permanent deal, but for now the Photoshop Photography Program, which includes Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5, for $9.99/mo has been extended through May 31, 2014.
There are no limitations for prior software ownership to join at this rate (as there have been in the past). You can sign up for the Photoshop Photography Program here on Adobe’s website.
(At the time of this post, Adobe’s site still has the offer end date as March 31; however, I have official confirmation from Adobe that the deal is extended through May 31.)
In the above video, Photoshop Principal Product Manager Bryan O’Neil Hughes discusses selective color manipulation in Photoshop CC. He covers how to change the color of specific objects in Photoshop and how to selectively color a black and white image.
