Microsoft and Adobe team up to make Photoshop way better for touchscreens

Photoshop isn’t the easiest app to use on a touchscreen, but Adobe is quickly beginning to change that. It officially began supporting touch gestures on Windows 8 today — including the ability to zoom, pan, and rotate — after starting to publicly test them early this year. But more important for the long run, Adobe is working on some interface changes that’ll make the app designed for use with touch, rather than having touch support grafted onto it.

Adobe teased the first of those changes today by demonstrating an upcoming feature called Playground. It’s a new, minimalist view inside of Photoshop that lets you scrub through all of the different layers in your file just by swiping your finger across it. Layers can even be picked up and…

Photoshop adds 3D-printing support, with MakerBot and Shapeways integration

Adobe is stepping into 3D printing today with a new update to Photoshop CC. It’s adding in a new 3D-printing tool meant to make it easy for anyone to take a model, put some finishing touches on it, and get it printed. That’s exactly how Adobe sees Photoshop being used for 3D printing too — less as a creation tool, and more as a way to put polish on an existing project.

Though Photoshop already includes some 3D modeling features, Adobe doesn’t expect most of its users to start building objects from the ground up. Instead, this printing support is meant to make Photoshop a better option for users who are just trying to touch up and print a preexisting model. There’s enough there to let users tweak and paint their models, and now Adobe…

How To Make A GIF Without Photoshop

Photoshop is great if you’re a millionaire graphic designer (it’s expensive and hard!). For everyone else, here’s the simple way to be a GIF maestro.

Unless this is your first time on the internet (welcome!), you're aware there's a massive GIF party going on, and you're wondering if your invite got lost in the mail.

If you think Photoshop is easy, I'm very proud of you and I'm sure that is wonderful. The rest of us, however, see it as a giant hot mess that costs a billion dollars (we do not condone stealing software here) and is impossible to use.

Well fuck it, you're crashing this party.

Well fuck it, you're crashing this party.

For this guide, we're talking about making these types of GIFs like Johnny Depp here, where the gif is a clip from a video.

For a gif that's flipping between two to three still images, I recommend GifMaker.me. But that's BORING. We're talking fun video clip GIFs here.

They’re not great, but if you you're looking for something super quick and with no bells or whistles, they'll get the job done.

MakeAGif Pros: Just drop in a YouTube link, select start time and if you want it between 1-5 seconds. Cons: leaves a “makeagif.com” watermark on your gif. Also, the timing can't get too precise for the start and end times of the gif.

ImgFlip Pros: Allows you to add captions to your gif easily, more control over timing. Cons: It prompts you to download a YouTube video using KeepVid, a program which no longer works for some reason. You have to download your video separately, then upload it.

Kickstarter For A Real-Life Photoshop Color Eyedropper

real-life-color-eye-dropper.jpg

That’s not the same blue!

This is a Kickstarter for Nix, a $ 99 Bluetooth enabled smartphone accessory that can identify the color of anything you rest it on, so you can paint your office the exact same color of that coffee shop you really love. Granted it won’t look as good in your place, but that’s because you forgot to take the coffee shop’s natural lighting into consideration. Trust me, I dated an interior design major in college before she got into meth and dropped out.

The sensor’s Canadian creators say their device is much more accurate than using your phone’s on board camera to grab colour data, firstly because it’s purpose-built for accurate colour scanning and is “calibrated to return exact/specific colour values”. And secondly because it blocks out all ambient light — meaning the true shade can be captured, i.e. unaffected by shadows or changes in lighting conditions.

As well as allowing Nix users to view data on the colour they just scanned, the apps will include the ability to save a scanned colour swatch and add notes to it; view a colour in RGB, HSL, HSV, Lab, XYZ, HTML, or CMYK; convert the colour to other media such as wall paints, oil paints, make-up, watercolour, wood stain, automotive paint etc; select a particular brand associated with the media type you’re after and get directions to the nearest store where you can buy the paint.

It doesn’t just work on painted walls though, it will also work on fabrics, and, presumably, my penis. “GW’s Pecker Purple” the color swatch at Home Depot will read. Move over, Martha Stewart Collection!

Photoshop and Premiere Elements 12 now available, learn editing preferences

Photoshop and Premiere Elements 12 now available, learn editing preferences

Adobe’s Creative Cloud not your thing? Photoshop and Premiere Elements 12 have just arrived to please your subscription-averse (and beginner-level) nature. The latest version of the outfit’s photo suite features Content-Aware Move for shifting objects within a photo and having the resulting gaps filled in, the ability to correct flash reflections in animals’ eyes and 64-bit support for Macs. Elements Mobile Albums are new to this release as well, and they let users view, edit and share photos on mobile devices through the firm’s Revel solution. Premiere Elements boasts motion tracking to move graphics, text and effects with objects, upwards of 250 sound effects and more than 50 soundtracks that rearrange themselves to fit the length of footage. Both the video and photo editing packages sport Auto Smart Tone, which learns a user’s editing preferences and serves them up in a one-click option.

While both programs have picked up a healthy share of upgrades, the pricing model remains unchanged. Mac and Windows versions are now available online from Adobe for $ 100, or $ 150 when purchased in a bundle. Upgrades are set at $ 80 for each, or $ 120 when the pair are snapped up together. As for boxed copies of the software, they’ll be available soon form brick-and-mortar shops and online retailers.

Adobe Creative Cloud apps now ready to download, including improved Photoshop (hands-on)

Photoshop_large

Last month, Adobe dropped a bombshell on users of its Creative Suite apps: going forward, all of its apps under the umbrella, from Photoshop and Illustrator to Dreamweaver and After Effects, would fall under the umbrella of Creative Cloud, its monthly subscription service. While the decision has been divisive, one thing is clear: if you want new Photoshop features, Creative Cloud is your only way in. Today, Adobe is unveiling all of the updated apps it announced in May, and we took the opportunity to look at what separates Photoshop CC from its CS6 predecessor.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 now available for $149

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 now available for $  149 with Smart Previews and more

Adobe teased us with a Photoshop Lightroom 5 beta at the start of the spring, and it’s closing out the season by releasing the finished goods. Mac- and Windows-based shutterbugs can download the completed image management app today, either at no extra charge through a Creative Cloud subscription or $ 149 for a stand-alone version ($ 79 for an upgrade). Buyers get the same core updates no matter how much they spend, including an Advanced Healing Brush for removing objects and Smart Previews that let travelers leave their original files at home. When Lightroom is free to try for a month, it likely won’t hurt to grab a copy at the source link — especially if your photo collection is growing out of hand.
