Today I was doing some edit­ing in Photoshop for my daughter’s school year­book. I spent a bit of time opti­miz­ing images, but mostly I did lots and lots of crop­ping, and I found myself frus­trated at some of the lim­i­ta­tions of the Crop tool. So I did what I always do when I find myself get­ing annoyed about a project: I go to the video2brain course library to see if I can find a les­son or two that will show me how to over­come what­ever obsta­cle I’m facing.

Lo and behold, I found Chad Che­lius and Ellery Connell’s new course Photoshop CS6 Cre­ative Cloud: New Fea­tures Work­shop. While I was ini­tially drawn to the course because of the Crop tool les­son, it was cool to learn more about the Adobe Cre­ative Cloud ser­vice. Chad and Ellery walk you through all the exclu­sive new fea­tures you get from the Photoshop 13.1 update if you are an Adobe Cre­ative Cloud user. You’ll learn how to edit non­de­struc­tively with the Blur Gallery and Liquify fil­ter using new Smart Object sup­port, cre­ate con­di­tional actions, copy CSS data to a web page, and more.

One ben­e­fit of the Adobe Cre­ative Cloud Ser­vice is that you get instant access to updates and new fea­tures, with­out hav­ing to wait for the next ver­sion of the soft­ware to come out. I know you want to be the first on the block to try out new fea­tures! In this free les­son, you’ll learn about improve­ments to our friend the Photoshop Crop tool. It’s now eas­ier to use and has a few new tricks that will make your work­flow faster. Take a look and see what you think!
