Content-Aware Crop


After showing a preview of the new Content-Aware Crop in Photoshop a few weeks ago, Adobe's finally released the tool alongside a few other nifty features. 

Adobe says the highly anticipated CC features offer critical time-savings and new creative opportunities for Creative Cloud subscribers and we've taken a closer look at what's new below. 


Content-Aware Crop in Photoshop

This is the tool we took a look at a few weeks ago and it automatically fills in the gaps when you rotate or expand a canvas beyond the original image size.



Face-Aware Liquify in Photoshop

Create artistic effects with facial features using the Liquify Tool while keeping the face in proportion. Face-Aware Liquify automatically identifies eyes, noses, mouths, and other facial features and then makes it easy to adjust them.

Match Font in Photoshop

An innovative font recognition technology that has the ability to recognise and identify licensed fonts and automatically suggest fonts available on your computer system or available to license through Adobe Typekit. This takes the guesswork out of finding the perfect font for your design

Selection and Masking Space

This new dedicated workspace helps you make precise selections and masks more easily than ever. Use tools like Refine Edge Brush to cleanly separate foreground and background elements.



Other Photoshop productivity enhancements include a four times performance improvement when working with the Font Menu and three times improvement for Content-Aware Fill. There have also been updates to the libraries, artboards have been improved, enhancements have been made to the export option and there's also a new preference when using the legacy Healing Brush (got to Preferences>Tools and the brush will be there).
