In this course, Photoshop senior product manager Bryan O'Neil Hughes takes you on an insider's tour of the key photo-enhancement features in Adobe Photoshop CS6, providing details on how they work, background into their evolution, and insights into how to use them more effectively.
The course begins with an exploration of Photoshop features that make changes to an entire image: the Crop tool, the Auto button that's present in many adjustment dialog boxes, and the Curves panel options. Next, Bryan explores sharpness and blur. Each has its place in a photograph, and Bryan details how the sharpening and blur features work and how to get the most out of them.
The course also looks at adjusting specific areas of an image with the Dodge, Burn, and Sponge tools, and at the growing array of content-aware features in Photoshop, showing how they work and what to do when they don't work. The course concludes with a tour of the powerful Liquify filter, features for correcting lens distortion, and the world of presets that allow you to apply settings with a single click.
In last the video we talked about what to do when Content-Aware Fill doesn't work and if you're on Photoshop CS5, those workarounds are really valuable. What I want to show you now is a new tool in Photoshop CS6 that really accelerates fixing that problem. So again, just to look at what the issue was with this file, what we had wanted to do was fill in this area in the front of the image and we'd asked Content-Aware Fill to do that. And it looks at the whole image and it pulled in some of the wrong data we got, what's a called Content-Aware Fail and we had a nice workaround for that, but something that people have asked for, for a while and that was, couldn't you just take that technology and put that in the Patch tool and in CS6 that's exactly what we did.
So we took the Patch tool and we made it Content-Aware, I can take that same selection and just move it over here and it's going to copy from the other side of the screen and patched that right in there. And it's a use that same algorithm that looks around at the texture and the tone. The only thing to know about this is if you don't get the exact result that you want, you can come up here and change how strict or how loose the blending is, so depending upon where you're working with, in this case, with a repeatable Background with the dirt, medium worked really well.
