Adobe Rolls Out Big Update For Photoshop CC, Smaller Updates For The Rest Of Its Apps

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.
