Adobe Announces Major Updates to its Entire Photoshop and Lightroom Product Line
From the Adobe Blog: Today’s announcement is so broad that some product updates are immediately available while others are still undergoing finishing touches from our engineers and will ship in the coming weeks. As always, all the updates are available to Creative Cloud members according to your plan. Here’s what’s available today:
Photoshop Fix 1.0 – NEW!
We are thrilled today to introduce and make immediately available Photoshop Fix, a new mobile app built to make non-destructive image retouching easier than ever before. With Fix, we started with the state-of-the-art retouching technology from Photoshop and Lightroom, added some new secret sauce and packaged it all up in a mobile workflow specifically designed to make retouching fast and easy while on the go, while still producing Photoshop-quality results. Find out more here.
Fix includes Liquify to reshape any area of an image; Healing Brush to remove image imperfections such as scratches and blemishes; Smooth to easily smooth or sharpen areas of a landscape or parts of skin; unmatched face detection that recognizes when a specific section of the face is selected and enables detailed refinements; and much more. Fix even delivers amazing performance on images from high-end DSLRs (depending on your hardware capabilities). Try it out. I promise you won’t have seen this kind of performance on a mobile device before.
Fix is deeply connected to Lightroom and Photoshop through CreativeSync. You can edit your Lightroom images directly in Photoshop Fix and save them back to your Lightroom catalog without ever leaving Fix. Use Photoshop to open a retouched image you created in Fix and get the full, layered PSD file showing all the adjustments and masks from your Fix edits.
It is available free on iPhone and iPad. Find out more here.
Lightroom CC 2015
Today’s release covers the full Lightroom ecosystem across desktop, web, and mobile. Now your photography goes where you go even more seamlessly. Organize, edit, and share your photos from anywhere—on your computer, on the web, on your iPad, and on your iPhone or Android devices. Learn more here.
Photoshop CC 2015
More information about Photoshop CC here
Today, we are announcing a major update to the desktop version of Photoshop. One new web-based component of Photoshop will ship today, which I will describe below. The primary Photoshop desktop application will ship in the coming weeks when we release all our other desktop apps like InDesign CC, Illustrator CC, Premier Pro CC, etc. and I will write a detailed blog post about Photoshop on that date. To whet your appetite, here is just some of what we are adding:
Even more enhancements for designers – continuing to build out this major area of focus for you. We are adding a completely streamlined and tuned Design Space mode targeted for web and UI designers; new Artboard capabilities; the ability to directly import SVG files that you can rescale in your designs; and Creative Cloud Libraries improvements that speed up your asset access and management workflows.
The ability to easily work with 3D figures and incorporate them into your images and designs directly in Photoshop. Import, pose, and animate characters created in the new Adobe Fuse CC (Preview), and then adjust camera angles, lighting, and position to get precisely the look you want in Photoshop. Just imagine all the possibilities and the flexibility you gain when you can pose, re-pose, change the lighting of people in images in ways that are very challenging in 2D.

Photoshop Sketch 3.0
We’re happy to release Photoshop Sketch 3.0 today. This update brings a host of new painting and drawing features to help you create even more realistic artwork.
Photoshop Sketch is an expressive sketching and painting app for your iPad. It includes 14 built-in tools including pencils, markers, a pen, brand-new watercolor brushes and the ability to use images for a collage or reference. We have added new watercolor brushes that blend and simulate water just like traditional watercolor. Last week I watched a portrait artist paint with the new watercolor brushes in Sketch. The realistic performance of the paint is truly beautiful.
You can also create your own realistic brushes for use in Sketch from images using the newly announced and released Adobe Capture CC. We’ve redesigned the Sketch interface so you can draw with your toolbar on the left or right hand side as well as customize the toolbar to contain just the tools you like. Finally, we’ve added new built-in stamping and tracing shapes and new perspective and graph grids to help you sketch more realistically. And you can integrate your art into other designs by sending it via CreativeSync to Illustrator where it can be scaled up losslessly to 4x. Or you can send it to Photoshop as a layered PSD file.

Photoshop Mix 2.0
Today we have released Photoshop Mix 2.0. This is a major update to Mix with many new features and improvements throughout the app, including a completely new architecture that leverages Apple’s Metal framework.
Photoshop Mix is a compositing app built using Photoshop technology that delivers a deep, focused, non-destructive editing experience on a mobile device. It enables you to do real work while away from your desktop. Through CreativeSync, Mix also connects to many of Adobe’s other mobile apps like Fix for retouching workflows and Lightroom for image enhancements, so you can easily produce multifaceted projects in a completely mobile environment. Plus, if you want to take your projects even further, you can quickly move your layered and masked compositions to Photoshop CC, and benefit from all its goodness. And now, there’s even non-destructive smart filter support in Photoshop CC for Mix looks.

Site Grinder Web Design Tool
There often seems to be a strict division of labor within the world of web design and development. Creative professionals tend to stick to the Photoshop domain, while those well-versed in scripting are left to the task of implementing their work. Indeed, the two realms are quite different from each other, to which any of us even vaguely familiar with either can easily attest.
Essentially, Photoshop is a no-holds-barred design studio, offering the artist a seemingly endless array of creative options. On the other hand, HTML, CSS, Java and the like follow strict rules of engagement, requiring the developer to take any number of esoteric concerns into consideration in order to ensure that designs are properly displayed on the web.
Turn Photoshop Into A Complete Web Design Tool
SiteGrinder seeks to bridge this gap between design and development. Basically, SiteGrinder turns Photoshop into an easy-to-use and fully functional web design tool. With SiteGrinder, designers will now have the freedom to totally let their creativity loose and then, without skipping a beat, transfer their designs to the web. Bringing esthetic concerns together with more practical considerations, SiteGrinder is an amazingly powerful tool that would make a fantastic addition to any web designer's bag of tricks. Mac OS X and Windows versions of the SiteGrinder unlockable demo are available now via download.
