An Update to Photoshop CS6 on the Creative Cloud

Adobe have dropped their first update to Photoshop CS6 for Creative Cloud subscribers.

The update is currently limited to Creative Cloud subscribers only.

This shouldn't come as a surprise - Adobe promised they would be doing this when the Cloud was launched.

The new features provide for a more flexible way of working with a range of tools.

Improved Smart Object Support

Among the key announcements is the extension of smart objects to the new blur gallery and also to the liquify tool. Smart objects make life easier in Photoshop, by enabling greater ease of non-destructive editing, but also by making things that would otherwise not be possible, possible. The ability to apply smart objects to the tilt shift blur effect, for instance, will make it possible now to create the 'miniature world' illusion using videos.

Another key area of improvement is the use of Photoshop in hard core web design. Here, designers will be able to create CSS from Photoshop documents and also to collect colour schemes from HTML and CSS and SVG files.

There are several other new features in this release. A pretty cool array just eight months after the launch of CS6.

Conclusion: Adobe seem to be taking this Creative Cloud thing seriously.

Refine Edge is not magic, and this command is very much one of those Practice makes Perfect situations. Neither can it be used as the sole means of improving selections: other techniques need to be employed when all of the advanced digital wizardry of Refine Edge no longer cuts into the problem.

If you still need extra input, and for a slightly different approach to Refine Edge, the following video from has some useful hints. The materials mentioned in the video can be accessed at Adobe TV.
