TheFIX 019: Photoshop CC 2015 Kicking the Tires

You may seen pre-prepared videos of new features, but have you seen a photographer actually put the new photography-related features in Photoshop CC 2015 to work? Host Jan Kabili kicks the tires on the new Photoshop right before your eyes in this episode of TheFIX.

  1. Photographed a couple of days back. Setting sun lights up Vancouver (BC) with Mt. Baker in the background. Canon 5D Mk2 with a 100mm lens. Number of shots taken during the evening, brought into Lightroom. Adjustments made and brought into photoshop cc 2015 as smart objects. Various images were worked on, non-destructively and combined together using different bending modes & masks. finally resized for upload and bit depth reduced to 8 & colour space to srgb

  2. PS CC 2015… some great features… wipes out all your plugins… so get your reinstall info in place before you upgrade… as PS CC 2015, also overwrote 2014… so it killed my workflow for two days…

  3. You’re right Yucel Yalim. When you install PS CC 2015 it overwrites PS CC 2014 on your computer. There is a way to avoid that, although it’s too late to help you now. You can choose not to overwrite apps in the Creative Cloud desktop app. Another thing you can do in the future when a new version of your work software is released is to wait a couple days and do a little research before installing. Adobe’s Jeff Tranberry runs a site that’s always a good resource on things like this: https://blogs.adobe.com/crawlspace/2015/06/2015-release-of-photoshop-cc-faq.html

  4. Coast south of Dublin. Did B&W conversion in Camera Raw and adjusted contrast a bit. I’ve been trying to get more into B&W conversion and learn to play with the balance of tone and contrast. Not quite there yet but I like the eerie feeling of the picture.
