This weekend, we were lucky enough to get an invite for the official Adobe Photoshop Meetup in NYC demonstrating these future tools. Hosted at fashion photographer Sarah Silver‘s studio near Union Square, the creative event was the perfect bridge between art and technology.
Photoshop Senior Product Developer, Bryan O’Neil Hughes began the presentation introducing the program’s new sleek interface taking inspiration from Lightroom providing more visual consistency. The demo was filled with wonderful enhancements beginning with Camera Raw for even more non-destructive pixel editing sensitivity. The lens correction tool gets an amazing upgrade to specify individual objects in a scene to edit distortion!
As big Content Aware Fill users we were especially delighted to see the added function of movement! If removing objects from a scene with Photoshop intelligently filling the space with continuous neighboring pixels wasn’t enough, you can now select an object and move anywhere in the frame and Content Aware will patch the previously occupied area.
In the slide above, Bryan selected the model in the red dress. After an accurate selection, the model can be re-imagined in the landscape.
Now, with the edit in place, Content Aware will fill the previous area the model occupied and seamlessly match the scene.
The Photoshop preview session finished with a lively and inspirational presentation from fashion photog Sarah Silver.
A self proclaimed Photoshop lover, Sarah’s masterful approach to her craft fuses her art and technical prowess. As unique as introducing dance and movement to her fashion editorial spreads, Sarah embraces a complete digital workflow. Discussing her approach photographing for the fashion industry’s top magazines and brands, Sarah generously shared her process and expertise with the group of professionals, students and enthusiasts.
