Photoshop CC updated


On the 30th November 2015 Photoshop got an update, making the latest version  Photoshop CC 2015.1

In terms of what’s been updated the answer is a lot. In the past updates have been maybe bug fixes and the odd addition to a tool. This new update addresses a lot of previous issues as well as adding smoother work flow.

One the main differences is when you first open the program. You are now presented with a completely different screen that shows a mini file browser of recent projects.

There has also been more touch enhancements and a new modifier panel has been added.

The art boards that were recently introduced have been updated also making easier to work with.

A full list of items in the update are:

Reintroduced the Oil Paint filter
New “Graphic and Web” workspace
Support sRGB export with new Export As options
Ability to resize the Export As dialog
Improved PNG interface in the Export As dialog (for exporting to PNG-32 or PNG-8)
Saved file type and quality settings between Exports
Improved stability of Device Preview connection, and added more troubleshooting options
Set type layer position on canvas (X/Y) in the Properties panel
