Adobe Photoshop had introduced several changes with its Adobe Photoshop CC. However all these changes which were supposedly introduced to improve Adobe Photoshop had its own drawbacks and disadvantages.
The new Adobe Photoshop CC has new features that make it superior than its predecessors namely Adobe Photoshop CS6, CS5, CS4 and CS3. The features introduced to this 2014 version of Adobe Photoshop includes Smart Object Improvements, Improved Layer Comps, Blur Gallery motion effects, Focus Mask, Smarter Smart Guides, Desktop fonts from Typekit, Font Search, Workflow Timesavers and Adobe Generator. Likewise, Adobe Photoshop’s Content-aware technology, 3D printing capabilities, Mercury Graphics Engine performance, Camera Shake reduction and auto correction capabilities have vastly improved with the new Adobe Photoshop CC.
Its shake reduction feature results in the reduction of particular type of blur and as a result photoshop can smoothly combine and blend all the multiple blur paths. Editing of photos is much better using this latest edition of Photoshop. Another thing I like with Adobe Photoshop CC is that fixing distortions and editing images can be done with greater precision.
One thing I noticed with Adobe Photoshop CC was that I was able to conserve a considerable amount of time in my work. This can perhaps be attributed to the enhancements introduced in the application. I can customize my menu using Sync Settings and can easily access the Color Panel. Likewise, response time of Adobe Photoshop CC is much faster primarily because of its Mercury Graphic Engine. Editing is not much of a problem even if I have to edit large files.
When it comes to 3D images, I can say that I am pretty satisfied with the performance of Adobe Photoshop CC. It is faster and easier to create a visualization of my 3D designs and printing said 3D image can even be done directly to an online service or to a 3D capable printer.
The problem with Adobe Photoshop CC is that you can no longer buy it just like the previous versions. The user is forced to rent the program for a prescribed fee. To one who rarely uses the application, it may be cost-effective but to a heavy user, it is definitely more expensive in the long run. Although with Adobe Photoshop CC, the user or subscriber may not be forced to pay for any updates since it will be optional to subscribe or make an upgrade, still the user will continue paying for monthly fees for the use of Photoshop. Actually, this is my only concern with the Adobe Photoshop CC but if they retained a similar subscription policy with the CS versions, perhaps it would have been better. I do not blame the company for doing away with the outright subscription of the software and resorting to just renting it out to users. This is business and of course the company has to make money. The only downside of this however is that it may encourage people to get the pirated versions of the software rather than procure one in the legal way.
