Adobe has launched Photoshop CS5. It sports a new interfaced and several new tools and refinements. The new content-aware fill tool, 64-bit support, automated lens corrections, refine edge tool and a beefed-up patch tool are just some of the sexy new features in the latest version of the program. Photoshop CS5 is expected to begin shipping next month for $699. Licensed users of the previous version can upgrade for $149.
From Adobe’s press release:
“For photographers, Photoshop CS5 now offers next-generation high dynamic range (HDR) capabilities. When combining multiple exposures into a single HDR image, Photoshop CS5 preserves the full tonal range of a scene with unprecedented speed and accuracy. The new HDR Pro offers exceptional ghost artifact removal and greater tone mapping and adjustment control. With HDR toning, users can emulate the striking look of an HDR image with any single-exposure image.
Photoshop CS5 provides revolutionary tools that maximize users creative impact. Breakthrough painting capabilities include a Mixer Brush that blends an infinite combination of colors onto a single paintbrush tip, and Bristle Tips that offer lifelike brush strokes. Puppet Warp gives users the power to precisely reposition or warp any image element, such as straightening a bent arm in a photo or manipulating the landscape to generate a new perspective.”
