Adobe Photoshop CC 2015

At AdobeMAX 2015, Adobe has announced a range of new apps and software updates, including updates to Adobe Camera Raw V9.2 for Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC, these updates include:

  • Dehaze as a Local Adjustment
  • Birds Eye View
  • Usability improvements to modal tools

Plus updated camera support to include support for the following cameras:

* Please note that SuperRAW files from the DxO ONE are not supported.

There are also new lens profile support, with a full list provided on Adobe's blog, including support for legacy lenses from Minolta and Asahi Pentax.

From Adobe: Adobe Camera Raw 9.2 releases today and remains in sync with Lightroom with the ability to easily remove or add atmospheric haze in specific areas of your photos using the Local Adjustment Brush, Radial Filter, and Graduated Filter plus, a new way to navigate through your images when zoomed in.  And as always you will get support for more cameras and lenses.

Camera Raw 9.2 is now available through the update mechanism in Photoshop CC and the Creative Cloud application.

As mentioned in an update to our camera support policy here, Camera Raw 9.2 is only available in Photoshop CC or later.  Customers using older versions of Photoshop can utilize the DNG Converter for continued camera support.

New Features in Camera Raw 9.2

Dehaze as a Local Adjustment

We added Dehaze as a global adjustment in the Camera Raw 9.1 release and are excited to see the widespread interest in the feature.  We wanted to extend the functionality, and I’m happy to announce that you can now apply Dehaze as a Local Adjustment.  This means that you can use Dehaze with the Radial Filter, Graduated Filter and Local Adjustment Brush.

Birds Eye View

This is a fast way to navigate across the image, especially when zoomed in. It is similar to the existing feature in the Photoshop app itself. Here’s how to use it:

  • Press and hold H.
  • Click and drag to set the position of the zoom rectangle as desired.  The zoom rectangle is shown as an outline around the cursor.
  • Release the mouse. The image zooms to the area chosen in the previous step. The selected tool remains unchanged.
  • If you start in Fit View mode or smaller, the zoom rectangle will represent 100% pixel view (1:1). This is a quick way to zoom to 1:1 at a specific part of the image (such as a person’s face, or other area of interest).
  • If you start zoomed in, then after you release the mouse you’ll return to the same zoom level. For example, if you start at 200%, then after releasing the mouse you’ll be back at 200%.
  • Birds Eye View is only available when GPU is enabled.

Usability improvements to modal tools

Modal tools include Spot removal, red eye correction, local adjustment brush, graduated filter and radial filter.

We’ve changed the behavior of the return and escape buttons when using a modal tool.  In the past, they would dismiss the modal tool.  The new behavior is:

  • If there is an active correction typing return or escape will deselect that correction.
  • In the case of the three local correction tools (brush, graduated filter, radial filter), the radio button at the top of the panel will get set to “New” so that the next click will create a new correction. This saves a bit of cursor movement; you no longer need to move over to the panel in order to start work on a new correction.
  • If there is no active correction, the Zoom tool becomes selected. This matches the behavior of the Crop tool.

Adobe has also announced a new app, called Photoshop FIX that is available for the iPhone and iPad.
