Hosted by the company’s Photoshop genius, Russell Brown, the video is available online now – the only catch is, it’s only presently accessible through Facebook. (Adobe should do the world a favour and shove it up on YouTube, we think).
The video shows a selection of features as demonstrated at Photoshop World. These include a new warp tool, Painter-style brushes – which aim to emulate the features found in Corel’s flagship Painter product, and much more.
A new Warping technology is also pretty interesting. Basically this means that by locking down certain parts of an image an image editor can alter other parts without altering the overall subject. The illustration shows what can be done with a man’s arms, which can be moved around the subject’s body….
While the company isn’t claiming these features will be found in future version, Photoshop CS5, or any future version, Adobe is presenting the video as a taste of what kind of work it is conducting inside its labs.
Meanwhile, it is interesting to reflect that the current iteration of Photoshop (CS4) is currently available at over $100 discount through Amazon, $586.49 rather than the $699 list price.
And if you’re a Photoshop user then we think it’s pretty possible you may be interested in today’s stunning deal for a Canon large format printer, also from Amazon – $499 rather than the c.$1,600 list price. We think it’s a great deal.
