To celebrate Photoshop’s 30th birthday, Adobe released a couple of new enhancements to Photoshop. The main one, and the reason I devoted a whole video to this is the Content Aware Fill feature that’s just been added. Now, if you’ve got several things you want to remove from your photo, you can do it all at once in the Content Aware interface, without ever leaving like we used to.
Adobe has also improved the Lens Blur filter as well as adding support for the Mac Dark UI. They’ve also added some new things to Photoshop on the iPad. The video below dives in to the Content Aware enhancement, but you can read more about all of the updates to Photoshop (+ iPad) over on Adobe’s website.
Thank you for this quick tutorial. I followed along recreating your steps with one of my own photos. But I noticed something…while your tutorial does not show layers after using the new content aware fill, and shows just the original background photo, mine shows each step I took using the content aware fill with the lasso as a layer, therefor I have 5 layers and one background photo. Why is that?
Hi. Check out the bottom right of the interface. You get a choice of what to do when you’re done.
Thanks Matt for the response….totally missed seeing that section.
I still take a laptop away with me when I travel. After all, I’d be transferring everything from my iPad asap so by not using the pad I save time in the long run.
Do you offer a discount for those of us who have the former MK Learning System videos
Hi Sam, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see what we can do.
Great Review Matt – Thanks. I’m half-way through your new Photoshop course and its great! Reasonable length videos that focus on critical elements of Photoshop for photographers. No matter how long I’ve been using the software I still pickup new things from you.
thank you for the updates
Thanks Matt, for everything Photoshop & Lightroom
Thanks for the head’s up on the new content aware fill update Matt. My Adobe software is set to update automatically but I don’t always realize what has been added.
Hey Matt, I bought your new PS video and have been thrilled with the tips and tricks I am picking up. While I have been using it for awhile, I am far from proficient. Just amazing what I am learning. Thank you!
I wish I could use cloning and Content aware on my nature images but for most competition rules for this genre. it’s a big no no. Only for dust bunnies and the like. If Ima just doing them for friends and FB all good though, I just create virtual copies and go from there.
Love Virtual Copies as it allows variations on a theme.
For updates sometimes i am on limited broadband and need to watch the size of downloads- and may even have to go to offpeak which at the moment is 1.15am – 7;15am
Are all the LR and PS updates actaul full downloads, i.e. 1+ Gb?
Hi Howard – you can always just stream them and watch them online. But yes, if you want to download the video files are over 1GB.
Thanks for all your help.
I’m with you too – I don’t want to edit in Photoshop on an ipad.
Thanks for the good info and posting your videos. Much appreciated.
Clearly explained as always.
I agree with you. I do not and would not like to edit photos on an iPad.
Thanks Matt I hadn’t heard of the latest update. Always enjoy your videos.
I agree–I don’t want to use Photoshop on my iPad.
Thanks Matt! Good clear presentation of important information,as always. You rock.
Love your presentations, Matt! Thank you!
Thanks Matt for the update, always appreciated
Thanks, Matt. Good to know about these new updates. BTW, I don’t want PS on my iPad either. Like you, I like my big screen.
Thanks Matt. These are things I can use.
