Adobe's pushing out a big update to its suite of creative cloud apps, most notably to Photoshop, which gets a slew of new features including content-aware crop and match font. There are a lot of new features here, so let's just break it down by some of the bigger ones by app:
- New search and organise fonts feature, including an option to view fonts by family.
- Match font, a new feature that uses machine learning to detect which font is on a preexisting image. It's basically the eyedrop tool for fonts.
- Face-aware liquify now makes it easier to automatically adjust facial features for retouching.
- Content-aware crop works exactly like you'd expect: You can crop or rotate an image and Photoshop will fill in any gaps on the canvas.
- The new select and masking space overhauls the quick selection tool a bit. You can now get a dedicated workspace specifically for the selection tools, which makes it easier to work with various masks.
- Illustrator gets a new export options for screens, which means it's easier to export individual assets from artboards.
Premier Pro and After Effects
- After Affects gets a character animator, which makes it easy to match an animated character to a real life actor's speech and movement in real time.
- Premier Pro gets some new virtual reality features, including field of view mode that makes it easier to preview the final product.
There are a few other minor improvements to other apps, all of which you'll find over on Creative Cloud's "whats new" page.
