New Releases for Adobe
Typically I don't post about releases for Adobe, since honestly there are typically more than enough 'experts' voicing their opinions.
However since I do a fair amount of portrait and composite work this release interested me more than some other earlier software updates. The latest releases involve Photoshop, Lightroom, and Adobe camera raw. The new portrait feature which is present in LR/ACR and Photoshop will identify people or backgrounds when you select the "mask" icon. The new feature can identify one or more people within an image and allow you to select a very specific portion of the image. For example, eyes, hair, skin, or face and allow you to make adjustments to that specific area. One could also lighten or darken a background by choosing the mask icon.
When cleaning up an image features such as a cloning tool, patch tool, and the content aware tools. In the 2023 version of Photoshop out this October one could use the object selection tool to choose an object such as one of the beer bottles on the floor. Right click on the selection and and an option to delete and fill the selection. While this is still not perfect, I find that it shows an improvement over the older content aware fill option (this original still remains).
I am providing a short Youtube video that covers these new features quite well. This update is worth the few minutes it takes to update each of the programs!
