On Monday, Adobe rolled out its latest Creative Cloud updates, bringing a slew of new features to Photoshop.
The 2015 update to Photoshop CC was announced in October at the Adobe MAX conference, and is now available for users. The update features new Artboard capabilities, direct import of SVG files that can be rescaled within designs, a touch interface for use with a stylus (or your finger on the touchscreen), Creative Cloud Libraries improvements, a customizable toolbar, and two new preview tools for Photoshop users. The preview version of Design Space is rolling out to more users, and in more languages and looks, in order to “address the workflows of today’s web, UI and app designers.” Adobe has also made a preview version of Fuse CC available to Photoshop users, which adds the ability to create 3D human characters quickly and easily. These characters can then be used in other Photoshop projects.
“For those of you who’ve been with us a few years, you know that Photoshop has undergone a tremendous reinvention for designers… This has been a two-year+ metamorphosis during which we added Artboards, Linked Assets, Creative Cloud Libraries, improvements to Layer Styles and Guides; major renovations to our font and type features,” said Pam Clark, Director of Product Management for Photoshop, in a blog post on the update. Other previous changes included deep integration of Adobe Stock, the ability to print in 3D, and cloud and peer connectivity with Creative Sync, along with other additions. Existing Photoshop CC subscribers will get the update in the Creative Cloud application. Users may need to sign out and back in to get the update.
