The Next Update To Photoshop CC

Photoshop is updating Photoshop CC tomorrow with new features, and the one that’s got everyone excited is the new Focus Mask feature. Focus Masks make for easy post-production adjustments that require separating subject from background, and they’re done automatically when the software determines a selection based on image areas that are in focus versus areas that are out of focus. It’s yet another way to select subjects and backgrounds independently. While it’s not perfect (one-click selections rarely are), with a little bit of fine tuning (courtesy of the "refine edge" tool) the focus masks really come quite close to perfection. It’s a tool I’m pretty excited about. See how it works in this video released by Adobe Labs, and don’t forget to download your Creative Cloud update tomorrow afternoon.
