About the talk
Chief Product Officer Scott Belsky invites Adobe Evangelist Terry White to the stage to demonstrate the latest features in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Adobe Stock.
Do we have a lot of amazing stuff to share with you today? So, let's Dive Right In please welcome. Terry White is going to show you some of the most requested. Yes and fans out there. That's great. It's our products really nice improvements. I know you love and how are using Adobe Sensei the artificial intelligence engine behind a lot of what we do help you create more in record time. Thanks. I am so excited to be here today than I will show you some of my favorite new features across desktop and mobile but also some of the performance
enhancements along the way so let's get to it. Let's speak in a performance starter in Photoshop in this may seem like a little thing but if you've ever created a new document Photoshop you wonder why that new document dialog box takes three four five seconds to come up you'll be happy to know that is not instantaneous little thing, but it goes a long way every single day. Next up. Let's talk about we transformed last year introduced not having the whole down shift key. We got your feedback. And now you want that experience Denali be consistent across pixel in
Vector layers what you want to be able to talk a little based on your preference and that preference is now sticky. So whatever you choose that's the way it's going to be. So what's going to work one of my favorite new capabilities now, I switch to warp. I didn't get the standard three-by-three grid because I can go from 3 by 3 all the way up to five by five. And and if that's not enough I can click to add my own custom points, wherever I need them along the way and I got the ability to hold on the shift key and select multiple points at the same time so I can transform this flour to make a
little wider and taller just like that. Let's go take a look at making Selections in the past. I might have use Adobe Sensei is power select subject which in this case, it would think all of the food is the subject. But what if I only want one thing now with the new objects electoral even in the shape of a rectangle, I can just go ahead and make a selection in Adobe Sensei figures out what I was trying to select and does it for me. Even if I come down to a pepper and do that, it figures out that I wanted the pepper and make that selection for me. What if it's more interested in
the tool can be switch from a rectangle to allaso so that even if I go around one of the zucchini and I'm using a mouse to do this on this won't be pretty I go around it and Adobe since I figured out that I only wanted the one and does it for me. Collections will never be the same going forward. But wait, why do we make Selections in the first place? We typically make selections so that we can take the object off the background or remove the background will what if it ever since they could do that all in one stop for you. What if it can figure out what the subject is and remove
it from the background in one click with one new button here in the properties panel called remove background just like that. Don't know what you're thinking. That was too quick. Got to see that again on a different image play. Yep doesn't on that one, too. And this truly is how Skynet got started. working gear No, it's beautiful image created by artist Isabella Mesa. Christie's images from scratch with literally hundreds of not thousands of layers in this is a 5 GB file so we can talk about
performance but more importantly when you going to file like this, especially from the artist. Typically the layers may not be named as best they could Sonia says I got a lot of background copies here, but that's okay. I need to know what's on the layer. So now with the new Zoom Talaria capability I can hold on my option key and just click and it will Zoom to that later and show me what's on it. I can isolate it and then name that layer and I'll do that one more time zoom tool are isolate the layer see what's on it and know exactly what's on my layers going forward with Extreme
Performance now in Photoshop. Timer switch gears when it was all about vectors. And of course in this version It's all about performance as well. I've got literally thousands of vector selected here, but wait, let's zoom out because that's going to take a minute write notes instantaneous zooming with thousands of vectors in illustrator GPU performance is amazing. I love it. Now. What about what what about drawing those paths now again, I mention that I don't have my Wacom stylus here. I'm just using a mouse. So
this is not going to be great. I'll do the best. I can to many points. What was the new improved simplify pathan go to power off simplify and it figures out we don't need that many points for that path. Let's take it for $28 for without changing the safe just like that. So you little of those informed improvements simplify path in illustrator now switching gear speed boosting. Our lunch is 25% faster than the previous version. But the problem we're going to solve today is the client doesn't like that image. I'm
trying not to take it personally cuz I took this image in Malmo Sweden of the Turning torso, but they want a different hour. I don't have a different hour. So now and then design I can right-click find similar images it will Source Adobe stop go out and look for images like this. Show me Tower images. I see the one I want I just drag it over. I can replace that one with this one. And if it's too big I can slept it and use the new or improved content-aware fit to fit it down. Now if I don't if I if they do like that one I can even like Christmas image
right on the canvas. Will I have to go back to the library and figure out where I got it from now speaking of images. Hunter Images of a photographer I love Lightroom. I use Lightroom every single day and I've got Lightroom here running on an Android device. And what's new in Lightroom that I love now both on mobile and desktop our new interactive tutorials. You might think another video know if I tap on this tutorial by Randy And start the tutorial the first thing it does is that downloads the image
into my device so I can continue working and then walks me through step-by-step the steps that Randy took to get this and that little God is showing me what sliders to move by move the slider and I go a different way. It's okay. I can experiment with what that slide or does to see what Clarity does but then I can go ahead and lock it in on the way. I'm supposed to go to the next tab for lighting. I can see what exposure does and then still come back to where I'm supposed to in this tutorial and I can keep going through and see Shadows. He was Shadow detail will do until I'm on Ellen to
spot them supposed to be on now. That's step-by-step tutorials, but wait, there's more. Close this scroll up to the Discovery area because of the discovery area is not so much about learning step-by-step. It's about seeing cool images and techniques tapping on one and stuff. You walking through step-by-step. You can just scroll through the edits to see what they were and if you like the look of this final image, you can don't win and download that as a voice search to apply to your images going forward all in Lightroom on mobile and desktop. I've got one more thing.
Let's head back to photoshop. Speaking of Catherine the look of things. I love the colors in His image if I want to create a color theme in the past. I might have pulled out my phone use Adobe capture and pointed maybe at the screen door at the scene in the capital's color themes. Well today we no longer have to worry about that because we're bringing the Caster experience to the desktop for the first time so I can go in to my library. What's the plus sign and there's a new Option create from image and it brings up the Adobe capture experience right in Photoshop so I can capture
patterns for the first time seamlessly Vector shapes color themes, which is what I want so I can drive the car stops around to get the exact color themes that I want. Once I do that I can save it to my library and for the first time both on mobile and desktop seamless gradients from your image or from a source file. I need more stops. No problem. I can drag the slider to get more stops and get the exact color themes that I'm looking for seamlessly all in Adobe capture on the desktop for the first time and those are just a few.
