Photoshop CS6 is going to the Dark Side

January 30, 2012

Adobe released a sneak peek video of Photoshop CS6 on YouTube and it showed off a dark UI similar to Lightroom and After Effects.

Lots of customizations are now possible simply by context clicking and the rich cursor support is something that I have been waiting for a long time.

I definitely like it, so check it out in the video below:

PS: the Camera Raw 7 product looks quite nice too.

Editing Audio the easy way

June 25, 2011

what if you could treat an audio file the same way you could treat a photoshop file?

Spectral Layers which at the moment is in Alpha Stage 2 promises just that. The software has the ability to use multiple layers, work with multi-channel audio as well as surround sound, and extract individual voices, instruments, or any other noises.

Check out the video and see for yourself

Adobe Labs teases us with amazing content-aware fill feature that we can’t have yet.

March 25, 2010

Now the Photoshoppers among us are all very familiar with the Clone tool. Need to remove stuff from an image? Clone tool’s got your back.

Imagine if it was a little smarter. Imagine it knew how to get rid of things you just pointed out it it.

Adobe Labs teases us with this video demonstration of how we might tidy our images… in the FUTURE.

Write in any colour that you see (scan)

The Colour Picker pen by Korean designer Jinsu Park works just like the eyedropper tool in Photoshop. Use the rear end of the pen to scan the colour of the objects around you, and then pen imitates the colour by mixing red, green and blue ink, thus negating the need for an arsenal of crayons

Unfortunately you can’t buy this pen yet as it is still conceptual, but if it ever hits the market I know a few designers that will want to have one.

April 10, 2008

We recently stumbled across this brilliant website that archives all the weird and wacky Photoshop mistakes. Some are more obvious than others, but we think you’ll agree that all are pretty big Photoshop no-no’s.
