Guys just got the tip off from the awesome David Neilands that CC2015 has now included the ability to use the legacy healing brush again! This is awesome, as the way CC2015 implemented the healing tool was such a distraction to many of us that we decided to move back to CC2014 while we waited for a fix. (not to mention the occasional bug here and there) It’s hard to say exactly what the issue was, but Pratik Naik posted a workaround for the most up to date users here. It’s great to know this work around is no longer needed!
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.
Photographer Christian Mairitsch (who also has some breathtaking landscape images in his Flickr stream) decided to go below the surface with the new feature. Literally. In a dynamic proof of its capabilities, Christian put the feature to the test on underwater images, with excellent results.
Adobe’s new dehaze feature has created some buzz around the Interwebs and yielded some interesting results for photographers. In another layer to this suspenseful saga, photographer Bimal Ramdoyal shared some of his own results with the new tool.
Taking a photo from a blizzard, Bimal upped the dehaze slider to +90 in Photoshop to see what it would do to the snow swirling through the air, and the dramatic results are quite impressive.
Adobe only just released Photoshop CC 2015 and it looks like they have what we used to call a show stopper when I was in the software industry. One of the changed Adobe made was to make the Healing Brush work faster, but it looks like that change has some crucial negative impact.
Luce from Luce Retouch recently uploaded a video showing that using the Healing Brush tool with Photoshop CC 2015 created an irritating salt-lines effect.
The affect got its name because it looks like someone left some water drops to dry on the image and it left a salty residue. (I wonder if that would be come saltgate…..)
