Adobe unveils new features for Photoshop, Creative Cloud
Tuesday, December 11, 2012 @ 2:53pm

Following the release of a universal update adding Retina support to Photoshop CS6 and Illustrator CS6, Adobe has also lifted an embargo on software updates available only to Creative Cloud subscribers. Photoshop CS6 is getting several new features through the Cloud, including Conditional Actions, default type styles, Smart Object support for the Blur and Liquify effects, and CSS tools. Some enhancements include tweaks to streamline workflow, compatibility with larger JPEGs, and improvements to 3D and lighting effects. The updates should become universal in the non-Cloud release of Photoshop CS7.



Muse, Adobe's software for designing websites without programming, can now generate tablet and smartphone editions of a site. The company is also implementing a Dropbox-like sync feature for the whole of the Creative Cloud, Connection, which operates through saving or dragging-and-dropping files into a desktop folder. Files can be shared with people who do or don't have a Cloud account; support for sharing subfolders is due in a later update. For larger organizations Adobe is upgrading the Cloud with teams, which can have an unlimited number of members, and bring other perks such as 100GB of storage per user and the ability to assign or reassign seats to new workers. An upcoming Creative Cloud Training module will provide courses and tutorials in languages like English, Japanese, French, German, Spanish, and Italian.
