- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Jan Kabili. Welcome to Photoshop CS5 New Features. From significant enhancements to high dynamic range photo processing, to the new Puppet Warp mode for distorting objects, to new brushes that will help you turn a photograph into a painting, there is something for everyone in this new release of Photoshop. In this course, I'll show you how to use the new Content-Aware fill to magically replace a background area with surrounding detail, and improvements that take noise reduction to a serious professional level.

I'll dig into the new Mini Bridge, which brings many of the best functions of Adobe Bridge right to your Photoshop interface. So let's get started with Photoshop CS5 New Features.
