This course explores the newest version of Photoshop from a photographer's perspective—helping users of previous versions of Photoshop make upgrade decisions and get up to speed with CS6. Author Chris Orwig covers the improvements to Camera Raw, including the improved exposure controls, Adjustment Brush tool, and Lens Correction filter. He then addresses the enhancements in Photoshop, such as the new Layer panel behavior, which makes renaming and organizing layers almost effortless, and image-editing features like content-aware retouching, photorealistic blur effects, and redefined nondestructive cropping; plus the brand-new ability to edit video in Photoshop. The final chapter addresses the new Creative Cloud subscription option, detailing features of interest to photographers: the enhanced Blur Gallery and Liquify filters, conditional actions, and improvements to the Crop tool.
In this movie, I want to highlight a new feature which allows us to control the way that our images are sized or resized or scaled. It has to do with what's called image interpolation. Now, well, that sounds like a fancy word. Basically, it's how we change the size or scale of an image and what happens to all of the data when we do this. So first what I want to do is highlight where we can find this information in our Photoshop > Preferences. If you navigate to the Preferences dialog, what you can do is you can find that you have by default an Image Interpolation setting here.
One of the new options that you'll discover in this version of Photoshop is Bicubic Automatic. What this does is it determines the best Bicubic interpolation when you're changing the size of your image. So you want to turn that option on, so that if you're free transforming or making any kind of an adjustment to an image, it then uses the appropriate type of interpolation. In other words, if you resize something smaller, it will use Bicubic Sharper. If you make something bigger, it'll use Bicubic Smoother.
Another place where you'll see these settings is in the Image Size dialog. Let's cancel out of our preferences and take a look at that. If you go to Image and then choose Image Size, this'll open up our Image Size dialog. Again, down at the base of this dialog we have these various image interpolation options. Now because I set my preference to Bicubic Automatic, this will show up by default. In other words, I don't really need to think about this anymore, except for really particular situations. This will also be the default setting when working with the Crop tool or when resizing the images in other ways as well.
So I just want to highlight that so that you can take advantage of that new feature, because it will help you out when resizing or resampling your photographs so that your pictures look their best.
