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!
