New Photoshop update

It’s been some time since the last post, due to personal issue. Back now, and hopefully able to update on a more regular basis now.

Adobe have announced an update to Photoshop, the April update, version 23.3

In this update, there are the usual bug fixes. Main features are

Copy-paste Live Text from Ai

The wait is over! Easily copy and paste Type layers from Illustrator into Photoshop as editable Type layers to maintain both functional and visual fidelity

Edge enhancement in your skies

Enjoy better foreground and background blending and improved masking for thin-line objects in your sky composites. Also, control lighting around object edges.

Also improvements to Cloud documents, saving files and performance enhancements

One sad thing about this update is that the Camera Shake Reduction (Filter > Sharpen > Shake Reduction) will be removed. The technology is not compatible with newer development platforms.

Photoshop 3D or not 3D

Adobe have released there latest version of Photoshop, version 22.5.1. This new release comes with some interesting updates, plus some sad news (for some).

The main updates to this version are, an enhanced sky replacement. You now have more detailed and complex skies to use with this filter.

The warp tool now has a handy transform feature, that makes it even easier to use.

Sadly this version also comes with some discontinued features. From this version you can no longer export to SVG.

The main discontinue feature however is 3D. From version 22.5, you can no long use any 3D features in photoshop. The reason why and alternatives can be found here: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/3d-faq.html

News Sketchbook Pro

All new (sort of) Sketchbook

At the end of June a new update for Sketchbook was released. This was the first from Sketchbook.com who have acquired the program (app) from Autodesk.

One of the main parts of this new release is that the Copic color library has now been removed. This may (probably will) disappoint some users. Sketchbook have stated that new color options are being developed for future releases along with other exciting additions.

The transfer however, didn’t go as smoothly as planned and its being reported that a number of bugs have appeared in this new release (5.2.4).

Sketchbook.com are aware of the problems and have said that it is a systems permission issue, mostly effecting Android 11 user. An update has been sent to Google which will fix the issues and also reconnect users Gallery (as this disappeared).

***Update***

Sketchbook has now released version 5.2.5, which fixes the above issues, including pen hover and the Gallery files disappearing.

Photoshop updates

The latest version of Photoshop was released in October 2020, but already we have seen 2 further updates. Most are just bug fixes, however the latest update 22.1.0 does have a new version of Camera Raw and support for new cameras.

A full list of details for each update can be found here:

https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/photoshop/kb/fixed-issues.html

In both the updates (22.0.1 and 22.1.0) there has been fixes to the new neural filters, which does show that time is being spent on them, and they are not just a fad item, that will be forgotten (like Repousse 3D tool that was ditched and replaced with a rebuilt 3D set of tools)

The new Neural filters do look interesting and could be a real bonus in your work flow.

2021 is here

A Happy New Year to all.

2020 was a very strange year, and one that many (if not all) will be glad to see back of.

The global pandemic of covid-19 was a real shocker, that is not completely under control. It is good news that vaccines are now coming out, and hopefully this will make the difference that we all crave.

Let’s hope that 2021 can be a much better year, and make covid-19 a memory, and part of history. Each country has there own way of dealing with the virus, but together as one we can (and will) beat it.

Be safe, and Rexcomedia wishes everyone health, wealth and happiness for 2021.
