Adobe Adds Multiple New Features to Photoshop CC (June 2014)

Photoshop CC Start Up LogoWhen Adobe first moved to the subscription model, many photographers were up in arms about the new pricing structure. Among the complaints was the mindset that Adobe was just going to take our money and not provide any real benefits to the end user, even if this was against everything Adobe was saying. Part of the reason for the change from a product you could purchase outright in a store or a pure digital subscription model was the idea that the consistent forms of revenue for Adobe would free up its resources to be able to provide more timely updates to its software programs as well as add new features in a much faster capacity then the standard 1 to 2 year wait periods between significant software versions (such as CS4 to CS5 for example). Today it looks like Adobe is following through on that promise as they have announced a slew of new updates to Photoshop CC (also know as the Creative Cloud).

Starting today, the Photoshop Photography Program that allows you to pay only $10/month (with a one year contract) for Photoshop CC, Lightroom 5, Lightroom Mobile, access to Creative Cloud Learn, and ongoing updates and upgrades has been made permanent. You also won’t need a previous license, it’s available for everyone!

Below you can find a number of YouTube videos that showcase many of the new features and show you what they can do. If you have new features that you would like to see in Photoshop in the future, leave them in the comments below. Enjoy!
