Introducing Photoshop forever

(MUSIC). Hi, I'm Deke McClelland. Welcome to the new features in Photoshop. Updating continuously, and one might even say relentlessly thanks to the Creative Cloud. Now since the advent of commercial software, we've gotten in the habit of thinking in terms of version numbers. So where, creative suite is concerned, there was CS6, and before that CS5, and so forth, that is a thing of the past. As a Creative Cloud subscriber, you will now always have the most current, version, of Photoshop. And you will be prompted to update every time a new version, is available. So instead of waiting 18 months, or even, a couple of years between versions of Photoshop.

You will receive updates at least every six months is my understanding from Adobe. Now, this may sound a little overwhelming. Who needs new features every six months? Well, you do of course. And I'm going to be here to tell you exactly how those features work. So, the next time you're prompted to update Photoshop, go ahead and do so. And then come back to this course and I will have new movies for you. Teaching you how those new features work. Three things up front here.

First of all, Photoshop supports high resolution screen displays, such as retina displays in the Mac. Or high dpi screens on a PC and I cannot tell you what a game changer this is. Photoshop is so beautiful, it's near print resolution. 221 ppi in the case of my MacBook Pro 15 inch and it's way better than print because there's no half tone dots. The colors are better and so forth. So great. Second, we've gotten used to thinking in terms of Photoshop standard, which has all of the image editing functions, and then Photoshop Extended, which had 3D.

Again, no more, every version of photoshop has 3D. And finally, if you enjoy using bridge as a file browser and management tool, It doesn't get installed automatically along with Photo Shop, you have to install it manually. However it is available along with the Creative Cloud. And when you install Bridge, you also install Mini-Bridge into Photoshop, otherwise all the new features are documented in the following videos. Please watch and enjoy.
