The last couple of days and also the past week there has been a lot discussion and speculation around the launch of the new adobe creative suite CS5 especially Photoshop as I’m sure this is what most designers are most looking forward to the most from the CS5 suite.

Adobe are slowly drip feeding us new features and enhancements of the new Photoshop CS5, and I’m more than certain that they will keeping doing so until 13th of April 2010 when it’s finally available to the public. This article we will discuss new features of adobe Photoshop CS5 and enhanced new features in Photoshop CS5

New Logo Design

Blue logo (OLD LOGO) – The current CS4 logo looks slick and sophisticated which uses the ever so popular letter pressed text effect.

Red logo(NEW LOGO) – The current logo is a lot better than the new logo i suppose it just needs to grow on me because I’m so use to seeing the CS4 logo, but still I’m not a big fan and prefer the CS4 logo.

The New features and Enhancements

The New Selection Sneak Peak


This is a very interesting feature which I’m really looking forward to seeing more from which is the Photoshop selection technique, which is an enhancement of the current selection technique. The new enhanced of the selection feature will offer an new and improved edge detection masking results in less time, which means the selection feature will be a lot more responsive and easier to cut out images which contain a lot of thin sharp edges which are usually hard to extract such as hair within photos.

Below is just short video by Bryan O’Neil Hughes who is the product manger over at Adobe who gives you sneak peak of the selection technique in action.

New Image Editing Tools

This is new feature which Photoshop are introducing in new the Photoshop which i am a bit sceptical about but never the less it does look very promising. The new feature has been developed an interactive image editing tools for Adobe Photoshop CS5 using a new randomized algorithm for quickly finding approximate nearest neighbour matches between image patches.

Below is a video screencast going through the new feature and what it is capable of doing which is worth watch is worth watching if you would learn more about the new image editing tool.

An New Brush Tool

This was the first new feature which Adobe announced will be within the new Photoshop CS5. The new brush tool will enhance the way brushes are used and will be a feature which I am more certain that painting within Photoshop will be made twice as easier. The new brush tool is very similar to the current tool in Corel Painter which is a very good tool. The 3D properties reacts to the changes based on pressured applied and even rotation which is shown below in the Screen cast which I recommend watching because this tool looks like a very exciting new feature in Photoshop CS5.

New Photoshop painting tool

This tool has been developed by adobe in order to make it easier in order for Photoshop users to convert an images into a digital painting using realistic natural brushes. The two videos show you how this new feature works and how easier it is to create digital paintings.

Spot Healing, Fill Tool & Patch Match

The following tools have now all been enhanced the spot healing tool has improvements made which enhance of the overall tool, the new patch tool and fill tool has also been enhanced. The screencast below showcases the new features in action.

Content-Aware Fill

This feature is technology for synthesizing textures. The video shows off great results which Photoshop is capable of doing filling in missing areas around a panorama.
