I just ordered the new Photoshop CS5 and this version really has me excited!
The 'content aware fill tool' alone looks to be worth the upgrade for Photographers! If you are like me, then you find your self wanting to move and eliminate objects a LOT, so with this new content fill tool , all the time we spent cloning and refining to make the 'move' realistic, can now be done in an instant! WA-LA!
Then there is the HDR pro filter built right into photoshop and this set of filters will make the HDR technique so much easier and down right fun! We will even be able to apply this look to a single image.. I be happy :)
Then there is the 'Puppet Warp' which will enable us to actually bend arms or legs to new positions to make the portrait even more incredible! How darn cool is that??
Being an artist who used Photoshop for painting as well as editing, I am very stoked to know that the brush engine has been improved and so now painting in Photoshop will lean more towards the style of traditional painting. Big plus!!
Then there is the 'Bridge ' which I never used , as it was such a hassle leaving photoshop to use it , but now it is inside PSC5 and a much handier and useful feature!
I can't wait to get my hands on this new version and start playing, experimenting, creating and then sharing every thing I learn with you all!
So please keep coming back to check for news , add me on facebook and I will keep you informed!
