Adobe Photoshop CC 2020

Adobe Photoshop is a raster graphics editor which is very popular among the people who works with multimedia. This software has developed and published by Adobe Inc. for Windows and macOS. This software is the most photo editing software because of  raster graphics editing. Photoshop can edit and compose raster images in multiple layers. It can also supports masks, alpha compositing and several color models. Photoshop uses its own PSD and PSB file formats to support these features.

New Features of Adobe Photoshop CC 2020

Object Selection Tool:

This is my one of the favorite features in Adobe Photoshop CC 2020. You can find it in toolbar. The quick selection tool is no longer the default tool. The object selection tool works a lot like the select subject feature. The way it works is, you can simply click on select subject. Photoshop’s artificial intelligence uses machine learning technology to make a selection out of the main subject of the image. What the object selection tool allows you to do is, apply that same command, but you can define the area. If you select a particular area then you will notice that the selection works better than before. That is the new feature here in Adobe Photoshop CC 2020.

If you are not getting the appropriate results, you can always come back and continue fine tuning the selection using any of the other selection tools like the Lasso Tool.  So, ‘Object Selection Tool’ is the first featutre in new Adobe Photoshop CC 2020 that I have just described.

Transformed Behavior:

Adobe Photoshop CC 2020 now has a consistent transformed behavior. If you remember in a couple of releases ago, Photoshop changed the way it constrained when you transformed. So, when you click and direct a transformer selection, you still have to hold shift to keep it constrained.

Some people like that, and it’s understandable. Muscle memory makes you always hit that shift key, and now when you hit that shift key and constraint it proportionately. In the previous list of photoshop, adobe added feature of enabling the old way of doing this. Now, with Adobe Photoshop CC 2020, when you press Ctrl+ T to transform, you will see a chain list icon in the menu bar. Now that chain link icon is tied to that behavior. So this chain-link icon determines the behavior for the shift key when transforming layers and they will affect all layers equally pixels and vectors.

Rotating Brush Tool:

The nest feature is great new addition for those people who paint and illustrate in Photoshop. In the previous version of Adobe Photoshop CC, we could not able to rotate the head of the brush tool while painting. In the new Adobe Photoshop CC 2020, you can rotate the head of the brush tool. How? Let’s see_

Firstly, we select the brush tool. Then we will adjust the setting of the brush tool. We will go to the brush tool setting and increase the hardness to 100% and reduce the spacing.  Now, we have a flat brush tip and we will reduce the size of the brush. The reason I did this was so that I can show the new feature. Now, we have a keyboard shortcut that allows to rotate the brush. While painting, if we tap on the right arrow key, the brush rotates! This is rotating to the right. If we tap on the left arrow key, the brush will rotate to the left.

That was the third new features of Adobe Photoshop CC 2020.

Photoshop Cloud Document:

There is a new file type in Adobe Photoshop CC 2020. The type name is ‘Cloud Document’. The file extension is PSDC. You can find you could document from the left menu bar of your home screen. A cloud document is simply a Photoshop file that is saved to Adobe’s Cloud. If saves as you work and you can access your files from your desktop. In the tab, you will see that there is a little cloud icon to indicate the cloud document. If I work with a cloud document file and close, photoshop will not ask to save the file. Because cloud files automatically save your work.

When you create a new document, and you save, Photoshop will ask you if you want to save it as a cloud document or on your computer. You can obviously select ‘don’t show this message again’ button not to see this message again.

Photoshop Smart Object:

Adobe Photoshop CC 2020 gives you brand new feature with smart object. You can actually unpack them. In other words, you can convert smart objects into layers. All you have to do is with your smart object selected. You can just click on it and select convert to layers. Photoshop will let you know that smart filters applied to the smart object will not be retained. You can press ok; the smart object will now get converted into a group.

Adobe Photoshop CC 2020 has a brand-new addition in the Content-Aware.  It deals with the fill mask. To use this feature, select edit option in the menu bar and select ‘Content-Aware Fill’. By default, Photoshop will select the Auto-sampling area option. If you simply hover the button on the image, photoshop will understand. Basically, photoshop is deciding what pixels to analyze to generate that fill.

    First of all I want to say fantastic blog!

    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.

    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or
    hints? Many thanks!
