When a new version of a favorite program comes out, are you more excited or scared? It seems like change can strike fear into the hearts of even the most veteran software users because they know the previous version so well — it’s like a trusted best friend, who may have a few flaws, but you’ve learned to live with them (or work around them). Well, no need to worry about finding your way around Adobe Photoshop CS6, because Tim Grey and Olaf Giermann have got you covered with their new course Photoshop CS6: New Features Workshop. It will get you quickly up to speed on all that’s new and exciting in Photoshop CS6 so you can start taking advantage of the new features immediately with none of the feared “bumbling around” (and yes that is the technical term for it) you might previously have experienced with new software.
For example, in this free lesson, Tim demonstrates some awesome changes to the Patch tool. You’ll be thrilled to learn that you can now use the Content-Aware feature with the Patch tool and work on a separate layer. What’s that you hear? It’s a big hooray from those of us who regularly end up saying “Hey, how did that get into my otherwise perfect photo?!” The updated Patch tool makes it even quicker and easier to remove unwanted elements from your images, as you’ll see.
