Top New Features:
Realistic painting effects with Photoshop CS5 Extended
New tools enable you to paint in much the same way you would using real-world brushes and paints. With a new Mixer Brush tool, new bristle qualities, and new ways to blend colors, Photoshop CS5 Extended offers virtually endless possibilities for creating outstanding expressive effects, from enhancing photographic images in unusual ways to painting directly on a blank canvas.
Use the Mixer Brush tool to fill a single brush with multiple paint colors, and then blend the paint colors with the underlying canvas colors to achieve results that rival traditional painting media. Or use a dry brush to blend a photographs colors and produce beautiful painterly results. Fine-tune your work by controlling how wet the canvas is, whether and how quickly the brush refills or cleans after each brush stroke, and the mixing proportions of paint color to canvas color. Photoshop CS5 also provides unprecedented control over brush qualities such as shape, length, thickness, stiffness, and angle. For example, you can specify a round, curved brush tip with long, fine, flexible bristles, or a flat, blunt brush tip with short, thick, stiff bristles. Use the Live Tip Preview to view a dynamic representation of the brush tip as you paint, and save your favorite brush tips for future use.
Whether or not youve ever wielded a real-world paintbrush and mixed watercolors, acrylics, or oils, youll appreciate the promise of painting freely and naturally in Photoshop CS5.
Fluid vector painting with Illustrator CS5
You dont have to sacrifice the editability and scalability of vectors in order to enjoy the expressiveness of painting. Paint freely in Illustrator CS5 with the vector-based Bristle Brush to produce lifelike brush strokes. Create a new Bristle Brush, choosing from ten brush shapes ranging from round point to flat fan. Then use settings for size, bristle length, bristle density, bristle thickness, paint opacity, and stiffness to fashion exactly the brush you want. A preview window shows you how the Bristle Brush and its brush stroke will look. Each brush stroke creates a path that can be edited just as easily as if it had been created with the Pen or Pencil tool in Illustrator. Get the most out of the Bristle Brush using a tablet with a Wacom 6D Art pen, which responds automatically to pressure, bearing, tilt, and rotation.
With the Bristle Brush, you can enjoy the flexibility of vectors along with the feel and appearance of painting in natural media.
Easy 3D extrusions with Adobe Repousse' in Photoshop CS5 Extended
Repousse' is an ancient metalworking technique for embossing artwork on the surface of metals such as gold, silver, copper, tin, and bronze. Inspired by this technique, Photoshop Extended offers a powerful new Repousse' feature for creating eye-catching 3D artwork.
In Photoshop, start with a 2D element such as a text layer, selection, path, or layer mask, and then choose 3D > Repousse'. The 2D path is converted into a 3D object or “mesh” that you can extrude and then manipulate in a variety of ways. For example, you can control how far the object extrudes and whether it curves, bends, or twists. You can also apply a bevel to both the front and back surfaces of the extruded object and inflate a surface so that it appears as a smooth, curved surface. Additional settings let you apply materials such as brick, brushed steel, fabric, rusty metal, stucco, and wood. 3D-axis and rotation tools allow you to examine the 3D object from different angles as you work.
Truer Edge selection technology in Photoshop Extended
Photoshop CS5 Extended takes the time and frustration out of making precise image selections and masks, providing you a faster way to extract subjects from their backgrounds and create realistic composites. New intelligent selection technology offers better edge detection and faster, more accurate masking for complex subjects, such as hair. Automatic color decontamination helps you eliminate background color around the edges of a selection, resulting in more seamless compositions when placing extracted subjects on new backgrounds.
Experienced Photoshop users know that getting a perfect selection requires continually modifying your selection technique to respond to the varying characteristics of an edge - for example, one method for hair and another for the edge of a building. With new adaptive selection-edge modification controls inhttp://bondisoftware.biz/admin/index.php?ToDo=addProduct Photoshop CS5 Extended, you can produce highly accurate masks and selections faster and more simply than before. Smart Radius automatically matches the best selection approach with the subjects changing edge characteristics, and extra view modes assist you in previewing the quality of your selections. The Refine Radius and Erase Refinements tools customize your masks and selections as you make them. These tools, in combination with the color decontamination settings, help eliminate any residual background color from around the edges of your selections.
All these enhancements, along with edge adjustments such as smoothness, feathering, and contrast, enable you to quickly produce selections and masks with incredible accuracy and control.
