We all like a little salt and pepper every now and then, but we aren’t huge fans of Photoshop adding it to our photos at random. Last month we dug into how Photoshop CC 2015 was adding salt-like artifacts to images when using the healing brush. Needless to say, this didn’t go over well with photographers using the feature.
Yesterday, Adobe released Photoshop 2015.0.1, a much-needed update that corrected this issue along with a variety of others, including crashing issues for both Mac and Windows users.
For those who were experiencing a little more “salt” in their pixel diet, Adobe states that it fixed “artifacts using Healing Brush tool on transparent layer with “Current & Below” enabled with soft brush.” Some of the other updates include:
- Crash when Be3D printer profile is present in presets (win only)
- Crash on launch “VulcanControl dylib” (mac only)
- Crashes when extension uses script UI
- Crash in specific cases when Open window is invoked (mac only)
- Crash on zoom (win only)
- Fixed artboard matte color extending inside artboard 1 pixel
- Crash on launch due to “librarylookupfile” (win only)
- Canvas/document area draws partially or completely black in a Retina/standard display config after disconnect/reconnect 2nd display
- Crash when closing an image (win only)
- Artifacts using Healing Brush tool on transparent layer with “Current & Below” enabled with soft brush
- Healing brush failing on individual channel
- Some customers prefer the texture and color rendition of the old healing brush algorithm compared to the new real-time algorithm
- Crash when adding a spot color channel after adding an asset from the Libraries panel
- Crash copy and pasting a shape (esp the Line tool)
- Crash on Scroll while using Pen Tool (win only)
- Performance problems zooming and panning while rulers are showing
- Selection redraw issue when dragging (win only)
- Converting a video layer, generated by image sequence import, to Smart Object crashes
- Fixed issue where customers in the UK, Canada and Mexico may not be able to purchase images form Adobe Stock if they accessed Stock through Photoshop’s Search on Adobe Stock menu
However, according to commenters, not everything that was supposed to be fixed was…specifically the Script UI.
But, at least the issue of spices is hopefully laid to rest…
