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.

Topaz Detail is 50% off now through April 30, which makes it only $19.99. Detail’s approach to sharpening lets you enhance true detail that already exists in your image, rather than just making edges brighter. It’s one of Topaz Labs’ most popular and highly regarded plugins.

(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.)
