Before the end of the year, Adobe rolls out updates for Photoshop CC and many others in their Creative Cloud that would come as a great help for designers. Clutter is one of the biggest enemies for most who have dabbled in serious Photoshop work. The rest learned how to create and design in chaos.
Whichever alternative is better for you, the update will offer an option to fix it. Several apps of Adobe’s arsenal have gotten upgrades that are aimed to make the life of graphic designers and photographers easier. It will save users time, offer more organization tool, quicker access, and hopefully spare a few headaches.
One of the updates is the option of customizing your own toolbar and workspace. It’s probably the most major one to be rolled out for Photoshop. It will essentially allow users to arrange, eliminate, and add tools to the bar that they most frequently use. And, in consequence, delete those they never touch. This is especially more useful for those who have not developed the reflexes of working with binds and shortcut keys.
In essence, the purpose is to spend as little of your time as possible hunting for the tool you wish for editing.
The second important update arrived in the form of artboards. It’s an incredible feature for those creating promotional materials and web design. Until now, users needed to use layers and groups to toggle visibility on and off. Now, just like it’s done in Adobe Illustrator, it will allow for simultaneous visibility across multiple ‘artboards’ across the interface.
Essentially, you will have the ability of keeping all options visible at the same time. It will assure a more organized workspace, along with faster previews on how your entire design will look.
To make your work even faster, the update will include ‘recent files’. This will be a short presentation with thumbnails which will present the last files opened for quick access. This means no need to browse through files and guessing which was the final product. It will also arrive with a quick and easy-to-use search feature. All will be easily accessed even through the Creative Cloud.
Overall, it seems Adobe has updated their editing software for the purpose of achieving results quicker, and with faster methods. They have also accommodated tablet users, by offering options for using ‘shift’, ‘alt’, and ‘ctrl’ buttons for easy combinations. It will aid in navigation, and quick commands for numerous functions that the editing software has available.
