Adobe Photoshop CC 2019 New Features!

September 5, 2019

Hi there, welcome to the
2019 Photoshop amazing updates. My name is Daniel Scott. And I am an Adobe Certified Instructor
for Photoshop. What I’ve done in this video is I’ve gone
through all the new features… I’ve kind of curated them to put the super
fantastic amazing stuff at the front. And kind of work your way back through. It doesn’t get worse,
it just gets more obscure. And the amount of people that are fixed,
is probably smaller in my opinion. There’s also exercise files that you
can use to play along with this course. There’ll be a link on the page,
download those. And if you like my teaching style… I’ve got full courses on Photoshop. There’s an Essentials for people
who need the fundamentals done again. and if you’re a hard core Photoshop user
try my Photoshop Advanced course. Alright, let’s jump in. The best feature in Photoshop 2019
is something called Content Aware Fill. You might have heard that before… but the workspace they’ve
created is really cool. So if you’re following along,
go to ‘File’, ‘Open’. Open up these three,
‘Content Aware Workspace 1’, ‘2’, and ‘3’. We’ll start with 1. The old version of Content Aware,
I’m just using the Lasso Tool here. Grab around the outside. This has been around a while,
you went to ‘Edit’, ‘Fill’. And you left everything by default,
you clicked ‘OK’, and it was magic. So it’s really good at getting
small parts of a larger image. Especially, kind of nature,
it’s really easy. Where it’s tough is when you’ve got… say a larger object, that’s part. Its proportionately quite big
compared to the rest of the image. So I’ve selected it all,
use the same technique. And hopefully it’s going to break. You can see, it’s done an okay job
but you can see over here… it’s actually started grabbing
the kind of out of focus land here. And it’s like, wish I could
just grab this over here. And that’s where the magic happens,
so I’m going to undo. Activate this new feature, go to ‘Edit’. And it’s this one here
called Content Aware Fill. You might be like, “Hasn’t
that always been there?” No, its new. What happens in this case
is that you end up with… this new kind of workspace,
this new work area. On the left is what we want
Photoshop to sample. And on the right here is your kind of
dynamically updated result. Worse than it was. So what we’re going to do is,
we need to do nothing actually. You should have these
all by default, these tools. And just paint out the things
you don’t want included. So I want to say, Photoshop, don’t include
any of this, please. And your computer’s going
to stress out a little bit… because on the right hand side there,
as I’m painting this out… it’s trying to dynamically update,
it’s spinning away. Watch this. Wait for this thing to be done. And it’s a whole lot better. So if you’re like me,
and use Content Aware Fill… to remove like this little thing… and then it removed it,
but replaced it with something worse. This is just a really nice
little extra feature. So try ‘Edit’, ‘Fill’ first
using Content aware… and if that doesn’t work,
or you get a bad result… jump into here, go to ‘Edit’,
then the ‘Content Aware Fill’ option. Other things you should know. Here on the right, under Fill Settings… you’ve got this thing
called Color Adaption. And what I found is, don’t worry
too much about the word Color Adaption… it’s more like, I will try
using option A or B… and watch this update,
it will try again… with different kind of
Color Blending Modes. And you can just see whether
you like it better or worse. They look much the same, very high. See that, did a whole different job. So you get like a couple of
goes at it and you go back. None, worse, so I think
our original default one was great. One of the other perks
for this method here is… you can see, it says Output Settings… so it’s going to output to
a new layer by default. You can jam it into the current layer,
and that’s what the old version did. That was kind of
destructive editing, right? It’s a new layer, I’ll show you,
click ‘OK’. I’m going to ‘Deselect’, and you can
see here, it’s actually on its own layer. So you might actually run
that a couple of times. You’ve got a couple of different options
to kind of start blending through. So that’s the new
Content Aware Fill workspace. One thing I wanted to show you though is… Content Aware Fill’s amazing,
but there’s a little tool… it’s used in the really same
kind of purpose. Say you want to remove these post-it notes. Let’s give it a go using our method
from before, ‘Fill’. If we go to ‘Edit’, ‘Content Aware Fill’,
use the workspace method… it’s going to go through, and you can
start deleting lots of things. So I’m going to say, not the laptop. Goodbye. Watching it update over here. It’s got the wood, another wood, please. You can chase this forever
and still get a bit of a murky result. Man, it’s getting more wood, not less wood. There are just times where
this magical little option is. So same sort of Lasso Tool selection,
and grab the ‘Patch Tool’. The Patch tool is hiding underneath
the Spot Healing Brush. You just drag it, so this one here… it’s using the same technology,
but you are saying… replace it with this exact bit, please,
and then blend it in. Hit ‘Deselect’, I find that
gives you really good results. So it’s the same thing, it’s like
using Content Aware Fill. But you were saying,
right from this area, please. Both methods have their place. One is you let the computer do the work… and with a Patch Tool I find
that sometimes really specific. Actually just use this bit. Alright, on to the next new feature. The next feature is not really a feature… but it’s something new
that they’ve updated. It’s a little bit painful and we need
to address it before we move on. So open up ‘Transform’,
I’ve got my Logo layer selected. Use ‘Edit’, ‘Free Transform’,
everyone does it It’s ‘Command T’ on a Mac,
‘Ctrl T’ on a PC. We hold down ‘Shift’ to make sure
all the proportions are fine. But it’s the opposite now. If you hold down Shift it squishes
it around, so I’m going to hit ‘Esc’. So all we need to do now
is ‘Command T’ or ‘Ctrl T’. And just grab one of the corners,
and you don’t hold anything down now. It’s one of those weird changes,
it’s a little bit hard to get used to. I’ve been using it for maybe
about two weeks now… and it’s totally good, and I’ve
totally got used to it now. And I can see why. Remember, if you
hold down Shift you can break it… but in old versions of Photoshop… you saw people who did that
with logos and images… and because they’re
newbies they’re like… “Well, it’s fine,”, and you’re like,
“No, you’ve destroyed the logo.” So by default it should be able
to break it, but for you hold down ‘Shift’. If you do want to distort it. It’s the same here for this
underneath layer, if I’m using ‘Edit’… anything that has those transform bounds
now has changed. So Content Aware Scale, love this feature,
it’s been around a while though. If you don’t hold anything down,
it just kind of just… it scales it proportionately, so I want
to actually just drag it this way… got to hold ‘Shift’,
and use this right inside. Magic new background, I love it. If you hate it you can go
into Preferences and turn it off. One tiny little update as well is the undo,
the undo you use to toggle. You hit Command Z or control Z on a PC. And you hit it a couple of times,
and it did this. And went forward, backwards,
forward, backwards. Then you had to hold down, like a
zillion keys on your keyboard… and hit the Z key… to get it to kind of do this one,
the one that everyone wants. We wanted the one that said
Step Backwards. Let’s change by default, so ‘Command Z’
will just keep going backwards. And undo right to the beginning,
it used to be called Step Backwards. It’s kind of more in line
with other Adobe products… and just products in general. Let’s get on to something more sexy,
like the Frame Tool. Open up, from your ‘Exercise Files’,
‘Frame Tool 1’. So really this is the
second most favorite tool. Transform and undo options
are just necessary things to address. This is really cool, I’ve got this
kind of web UI mock-up thing. Doesn’t really matter what
you’re doing it with… think of a frame as a mask… if you’ve used InDesign or Illustrator,
they use this technique all the time… when doing Clipping Masks. So the Frame Tool is this one here. Now if these tool tips are driving
you mad, they drive me mad. On a Mac, ‘Photoshop CC’,
‘Preferences’, ‘Tools’. On a PC it’s ‘Edit’,
‘Preferences’, ‘Tools’. And rich tool tips gone. So the Frame Tool,
I’m going to pick a square one… and I’m going to drag from here to here. And what you’ll notice is, the Layers Panel
has this new set up here. That’s what a frame looks like. What I’m going to do is
grab my ‘Move Tool’. I’m going to duplicate to
have a couple of versions. For my little mock-up here. They’re empty frames at the moment. To add things to this frame you
can drag them from your library. Got an image here, just drag them in. The cool thing about them is
they load them proportionately. So they’ll fill the frame, really nice. So you can drag them from your library,
you can click on them. And go to your Properties Panel,
there it is there. You can see, Inset Image, from. You can get it from Adobe Stock. I’m going to use this from my local disk. And I’m going to embed one. So I’ll use Frame Tool 3. You end up at the same position. I’m not sure why I do this all the time. I like to see the Finder window. Just drag from this straight into it. Anyway, there’s lots of ways
of dragging it. You can see how much nicer
the Layers Panel is. There’s lots of other ways of doing this. I used to use Clipping Layers, but I’m
totally switching to frames now. Let’s have a look at
another way of using it. So let’s open up ‘Frame Tool 5’. Zoom in, so we created the frame
and then dragged in the image. You can do it the other way around. So I’m going to go to
‘File’, ‘Place Embedded’. I’m going to grab ‘Frame Tool 6’. A little bit big, get it
to roughly the right size. Hit ‘Return’. So I’ve got an image
and I want to drag a frame around it. So got the Layer selected,
I’m going to go to my Frame Tool. Then I’ll grab the Ellipse version.
I’m just going to drag it across. Holding ‘Shift’, so it’s perfectly
height and width. You can see there,
just converted it into a frame. Now when you are working with frames,
I’m going to go to the ‘Move Tool’… there’s a way of working with it
on the screen, you can double click it. You can see, it kind of pulls apart
and I can see the two rectangles. This outer one is the image And I can work on it separately
from my frame. If I grab the edge of the frame though
I can drag it around, I can resize it. Now those shortcuts,
I’ve kind of used them. I find it’s easier just over here. You can see the white
line around the outside. So I can click on the mask,
or I can click on the image. I find that’s just a little easier. So the image selected,
I can transform it and scale it over… but not holding Shift. If you want to move both of them you can hold ‘Shift’…
and click both of the things, just move them around, backwards. What you’ll also notice is that,
in here my Layers Panel… you can see, it converted that image
into a Smart Object, if it’s not already. You can also add a stroke
to the frame which is handy. So with the frame selected here
in my Properties Panel… I’m going to double click this
to shrink it up. My Properties Panel, I’ve got the Stroke,
and I can decide on what color I want. I don’t even know,
pick one, Dan, come on. You can pick a size, and you can see…
I can decide whether I want it at the inside, center, or the outside. Surprisingly handy, instead of having like who layers…
with stroke effects applied to the top one. Or a separate circle image. Let’s look at another way of using it.
Go to ‘File’, ‘Open’, open up ‘Frame Tool 7’. So it’s not just rectangles and circles,
you can use text. Pretty much any sort of vector path
in Photoshop can be converted. So I’m going to use the Type Tool,
and type in ‘Daniel’, that’s my name. And nice big font. Drag this. Get it close. So once you’ve drawn the text
you need to convert it into a frame. It’s no longer going to be editable text. So just right click the word ‘Daniel’… and go to this one here, it says ‘Convert to Frame’.
That all works for me. Click ‘OK’. Now you can use any of
those techniques from earlier. I’m going to use this one, I’m going
to use ‘Frame Tool 8’, get in there. Now you can see my image just happens
to be not as big as the text that I had. So remember, it’s easy to click on this. ‘Command T’ or ‘Ctrl T’ on a PC,
don’t hold down Shift. You can hold down the ‘Option’ key on a Mac…
or ‘Alt’ key on a PC to drag from the center, that’s kind of handy. Hit ‘Enter’. Now you can’t do
some things with these frames yet. I imagine they’ll add them all,
so you can– it looks like you can add a Drop Shadow,
but it doesn’t seem to apply. It’s there, just doesn’t work. There’s ways around it,
you can just create a group. Stick that layer in that group,
and that group can get a Drop Shadow. It’s a work around for the moment.
I’m sure it will get updated to be able to show these things. And if I’m destroying
these things with Effects… I’m going to select them all,
I’m going to make them all a Smart Object. And the world’s best filter,
in all the land, you know what it is. Lens Flare goodness, job done. So anything can be a frame,
we’ve used circles, text, rectangles. I’ll show you a couple more
before we move on. I’m going to open up ‘Frame Tool 9’. We’re going to use the– we’re going to
forget about the Pen Tool… when living life with
the new Curvature Pen Tool. It’s a new from the last version… if you haven’t started
using it, it’s amazing. Double click for a corner, click once for
a curve, double click for a corner. Click once for a curve, another curve. Double click for a corner. Click once for a curve, double click
for a corner, once for a curve. Never sure what to do with that last one. I’m a converted man, from
the Pen Tool to the Curvature Tool. But draw anything, doesn’t really matter
what you’ve drawn it with. The Free Form, the Pen Tool. What you need to do to
convert it to a frame… is I want this frame to kind of
wrap around and mask this background. It won’t work if the background’s locked,
just double click the background. Layer zero, should name it, I never do. Click this top layer here… and because it’s just above it,
if I right click the word ‘Shape 1’… and say ‘Convert to Frame’, click ‘OK’. Magic, huh? I’m going to jump to Illustrator,
I’ve got a shape I’ve drawn in here. Going to select my little whale,
note that I’ve done an Upgrade course. Note that I’ve done Upgrade 2019
features for Illustrator as well. I’m going to copy it from here,
paste it into Photoshop. Make sure it is a Shape Layer, click ‘OK’. It’s a bit big, I’m going to transform
him down, here we go. Click ‘OK’. Same as before, can’t be
a locked background, double click it. Click this top one, and right click it,
‘Convert to Frame’. Because it’s right above it,
it should mask it all in there. Remember, I can work on
the frame, move it around… or I can work on the image on the inside. By clicking on this one, you can see
little white dots around it. Transform it, there it is there,
I can move it around. One thing you’ll notice in this version
as well is when I transform… can you see, it’s missing
that target in the middle. Click ‘OK’, if I go back to
the old version of Photoshop… remember this, see that target there,
it’s perfect… but I’m a teacher, so whatever– if I
say transform something and move it… they all try and move this,
and they’re not moving. So they’ve got rid of that target. You can turn it back on in the Preferences
if you loved that little target… but it’s gone in the latest version. See, gone. Now, little notes about this. Really it’s only for images,
the frame can be vector stuff… and text and all that sort of stuff… but you can’t put editable text
inside them at the moment. So Shape Layers and text won’t… you know, can’t be the thing
that’s on the inside of the frame. They can be the frame,
just mainly images on the inside. Images in Smart Objects. The other thing to note is… if you want to get rid of a frame
that’s accidentally happened… you can right click the layer,
and in this text here… there’s an option that says
‘Remove Frame from Layer’. And it’s gone. Let’s get on to the next feature. Before we hit the next feature,
if you are enjoying this video… you like my teaching style, and you want
to help me out, hit ‘Like’ on this video. Consider subscribing to the channel. And you might consider doing… my Photoshop Essentials or
Photoshop Advanced tutorial class. There’ll be a link in the
description to check that out. Alright, let’s get on to the next feature. The very next best feature, number three,
in my humble opinion… is Live Blending Modes, it’s a simple one,
I’ll show you what it does. We’re putting this, for no good reason,
we’re putting an island in a bottle. So Live Blending Modes 2,
I’m going to drag it into Blending Modes 1. I’m going to rotate it around. Not holding Shift, I’m going to try
and scale it in to get into position. A little bit too small. Hit ‘Return’, and I want it
to blend with the background. So I want a Layer Mode, and if you’ve
done it before you’re in Normal, Dissolve. Dissolve never works, it’s even darkened. And then you went Multiply, and you
clicked on all of these and went bananas. But now I don’t actually
have to click on them. Look at this, I can just
kind of scrub through… and find one that works.
Ah, look at that. Which one do I want,
Soft Light will do. Looks like it’s kind of under water now. That shortcut still works if you’re
using the crazy way of… ‘Move Tool’, hold ‘Shift’,
hit ‘+’ on your keyboard. That still works, but don’t need it now.
Took me ages to learn that shortcut. Now all you need to do is hover. Thank you Adobe.
Next feature, please. Now this next feature
is called Select Subject. This would have been totally number one
if it had come out in 2019 release… but they snuck it in
halfway through 2018. And if you’re like a lot of
people, you didn’t even… check what the new updates were,
you just went, yes, update… if that sounds like you,
this might change your life. So I’ve got Select Subject 1 open. I’m going to go to ‘Select’… and this thing here should be called… you should have an exclamation mark,
or super fantastic afterwards… but it doesn’t, just click ‘Select’,
click ‘Subject’. Stand back. How good was that? Now I’ve being using it for a while now,
it gets you kind of 90% there… sometimes closer, it depends on
how picky you are… but let’s add a mask by clicking… this little icon down the
bottom here, ‘Layer Mask’. Look at that, don’t look
too closely at the details… but if you just need a rough cut,
actually this is better than a rough cut. It’s, I’d say 95% there. Now the Select Subject 2 option… there’s a couple of little issues
that we want to just– I just want to show you how to kind of
really perfect the Select, Subject. It’s going to do a pretty
amazing job, getting the edges. We’re going to add a Layer Mask. And you can see, the beard
here needs some work… and there’s a chunk here missing. So what we can do is use it
in combination with the Select and Mask. So make sure the mask is selected,
not the image. ‘Mask’, click on ‘Select and Mask’. Now what I’ve done is
I’ve switched mine to be on black. And maybe it’s a bit dark. Just to see a bit of a contrast. Now with this here, along here,
this tool here is the best. It’s one that I think it
selected by default. Pick a size, this one here you
can kind of see from the icon. It’s really good for here. Basically what it says is,
go and do this again, please. Look at that, it’s really good for
edges of here, things that are moving. The larger chunks like this, this person
down the bottom here, this person. The gap, grab this top option,
the ‘Quick Selection Tool’ set it to ‘ – ‘. Pick a size that fits. Just kind of gets rid of that. There’s some bits in here,
probably just need a little touch up. You see, it did one and it
did them all, so good. You can kind of see it though… there’s a bit of a orange Hue around
the outside of his arm here. It’s kind of around the hat a little bit. What I find, there’s a bunch
of options in here. You can play around with them,
they’re great. I find the Magic Bullet though,
it’s this last option. You might have to twirl down
Output Settings. And there’s one here,
‘Decontaminate Colors’. It’s like, this magic thing
that happens, watch, click once. And it didn’t really– you also
notice that more in the beard here. Watch this, orange beard, not orange beard. I got a bit closer with my
Redefine Edge for his face. Be a little bit more careful than me. Just crank this up to 100%. Redefine on, off. That looks more exciting.
Let’s click ‘Open’. And other than the eye,
selected a bit too much of his cheek. It’s a pretty amazing mask. So it came out earlier in the year,
it’s ‘Select’, ‘Subject’. It doesn’t have to be people,
it’s just kind of like a main object in it. If you’re doing product photography
it works great. I jumped out of the video
and found this, just to kind of… show you it doesn’t have to
be people, it can be bears. Stuffed bears, Select, Subject. Wait for it to do its thing,
hit the button, and it’s not perfect. But it’s pretty amazing, and again if you
find the edges aren’t perfect for you… click on the mask, select range… grab this little feathery guy here,
and just kind of paint the edges… and somehow it just magically
finds the edges of the bear. Now we’re finished with this tool,
it came out earlier in the year… but I bet you, you missed it. It’s a brilliant tool, especially if you
combine it with Select and Mask. All right, on to the next feature. The next feature is something
called Quilt Warp. So from the exercise files open up
these three Warp files, 1, 2, and 3. Well we’ve done Warps in the past,
I’m going to combine these two. So I want to mock-up this
magazine cover on this background. We just go to ‘Edit’, ‘Transform’,
go to ‘Warp’. It’s pretty easy, the old way. As long as it’s kind of on a single plane. Now I’m going to spend,
like a couple of minutes doing this. Just getting it looking nice,
so I’ll get it to speed up, zoom time. So not my best work, but
it was quick, easy. As long as it’s on a
single plane, it’s nice. Now if you’ve used it much before,
you know that if I want more control… I can add a bit more of a grid,
so ‘Edit’… the same sort of thing,
‘Edit’, ‘Transform’, ‘Warp’. I can jump to this,
kind of like 3 x 3 grid. And that’s cool, as long as
everything’s uniform. So my next example is going to require
a little bit more customization. And that’s where this
Quilt Warp option works in. So in Warp 3, I want to get the vine
to kind of wrap around the text a bit. I need to move it up. So first of all, I’m going to
mask this background. Probably in this one,
because it’s one simple color. I’ll click on vine and use the handy
dandy ‘Select’, ‘Color Range’. It’s done a pretty good job straight up. You can click in here with the Eyedropper,
and say, I want that color. Then raise the fuzziness to say… I’m going to pick his buddies,
pick the other bits of green. You can add the ‘+’ button to say,
and this, probably not as fuzzy anymore. Eventually you’ll get something
pretty good. Let’s click ‘OK’. Not a bad selection, let’s add a mask. But now what I want to do
is turn Dan on… and get it to kind of wrap up the top here. If you’re doing this along with
me you don’t have to use Dan… you can use your own name. So with the image selected
I’m going to use that same thing… ‘Edit’, ‘Transform’, ‘Warp’. And these are the new features,
they call it Quilt Warp. Well they’ve told me that’s what
they’ve called it. But really it’s this split
along the top here. Allows you add your own custom ones. So you can either do it
both horizontal and vertical… and add a custom point, which is cool. I want to do that, or you can just do
a horizontal or a vertical… and just get kind of real,
just simple controls, it’s up to you. I’m, in this case going to use the split one…
and I’m going to hopefully– I practiced this beforehand. I was trying to make it look cool So I’m going to add two there.
I don’t have to kind of use that grid, which can be really– even though it’s only 3 x 3,
it can be really complicated. So I’m going to raise these two up here… Because I want it to kind of come up…
and look like it’s over there, and just a bit of… messing around to try
and get it to look real. Alright, as real as something
like that can. You can tell, like the cool thing
about it is that you can… you can do a custom, you can do exactly how you want…
by adding as many points or as little points as you want. ‘Enter’ to confirm it,
and that’s the kind of new feature… the new addition to the Warp Tool…. is adding custom points,
they call it Quilt Warp. Before we move on I want to quickly
show you a cool little trick. It’s a really easy way to get the vine to look like…
it’s going in and out of the text. Kind of interaction that looks really cool. You need two versions,
so I’m going to duplicate this guy. Two Dans, you have one
above the vine, one below it. And with this top one selected
add a Layer Mask, grab your paintbrush. Make sure black is your foreground color.
Pick a size, and just paint the bits in you want. It’s quite cool. It’s going to be behind that part,
then in front of that part. And you can kind of just decide how much. How much kind of peeks through?
Ah, look at this. And paint in white to get rid of stuff.
Alright, now I’m muffling. If you do do your version,
show me your example. Use your own name, you can use my name. You might not have such a stretched vine. Give it a background color,
use my white one there. And share it with me on social media. So Instagram is the best one,
I am bringyourownlaptop. Or if you’re on Twitter,
I am Danlovesadobe. Take a screenshot and show me what you did,
and let’s get onto the next feature. The next feature is something
called Distribute Spacing. So up until this version, all you could do
is select all of these people… And say, I want to, horizontal… that’s what– no vertical, I always get
that wrong. I want to line them up. But then I want to kind of step them out
in individual spaces. And up until recently all you had was this. Distribute Centers. That would kind of work,
but you can tell… like this, it’s using the center
of every object. And because this one’s small
and this one’s big… they don’t have the same internal spacing. So this is quite cool, I find,
you know, I should have– I feel like this could be earlier
in the tutorial now. I feel like it’s always
been a problem here… but now this thing is new. They don’t look very fancy, but they
distribute the gaps, which is very cool. So click on horizontal, or vertical,
if you can work it out. That’s why they got icons
for people like me. So now the spacing is even,
rather than the centers being even. It’s a simple addition, it’s been in things
like Illustrator for a long time… but we welcome you here to Photoshop,
thanks team. Alright, next feature. For this next feature,
it’s called Symmetry Painting. You might have bumped into it
in the last version. It was hidden under some special features
you had to turn on. It was a bit of a secret handshake
to make it work… but now it’s just built straight in. And if you did use the last version
there is some updates to it. So the way it works is, pick–
I’ve got Symmetry Painting open. Basically just an empty layer,
is all I really need. I’m going to grab any of the brush
or eraser tools… or any other kind of things you
draw with, the Pencil Tool. We’re going to pick a brush. Now the sweet new brushes are,
they came out a while ago in Photoshop. Not that long ago. But you notice that the Brushes Panel’s
been cleaned up nicely. And under Dry, Media,
and Special brushes… Kyle Webster’s joined Adobe, and all
those brushes came along with it… and they’re amazing. So I’m going to use, not the Dry ones,
I’m going to use Wet, this one here. Ultimate Inking Thick ‘n Thin. So the way this works is,
you pick a brush size… and this is the new little feature here,
this little butterfly. So basically you pop it down
and you pick one of these. We’ll start with just a vertical one. It’s nice and easy, you get
to transform it first. You’ve really got to kind of decide,
do I want it to be this way, or this way? I’m just going to leave it as it was. Straight up and down, and hit ‘Enter’. Now I’ve got a foreground color. And I’m just going to click, hold
and give you a sense of it. There’s a giant brush. But you get the idea, right?
You don’t need to see me draw. Not even sure what I’m drawing. There’s a cool little mix here of both… both the symmetry, which is cool… but also the brush,
and also the Wacom tablet. All kind of coming together… to become a drawer’s,
an artist’s best friend. I’m not sure what I’m doing now. So that’s just a flipping
across either side one. You can just turn it off
when you’re finished. You can actually just
change to something else. If you finished that and you’re like,
actually I want to see what the the weird– I want to see what the radial one does. That’s a new one, so I’m going
to have a Segment Count of– We’re messing about.
Hit ‘Enter’. And you can draw around,
and it kind of draws radial one. I’m going to turn this one off… and show you the last one, my favorite one. So instead of working on Radial
I’m going to look at this Mandala. Going up to 5. Enter in the size. Now if you don’t have a Wacom tablet… a way to kind of fake it is to – nothing to do with this,
I’m just changing the size. – it’s this thing over here, the Smoothing. If you lift up the Smoothing to 100%… it’s going to kind of
smooth out your lines… and look a whole lot more natural… and all the more hand drawn than
the kind of generic stuff you might get. You can also mess about with
some of these, Catch up Stroke is cool. And Catch up the end of Stroke can be fun. Same with Pulled String, give them a go. You’ll kind of find what
you feel is natural. I’m happy with that, and I’m just
going to draw for no good reason. Now I’ll speed this up
because I’m just going to… play around with it for a little bit. All right, you’re back. I don’t even know
what I was doing but if it was fun. But I got my little pattern. So Symmetry Brush, you can see there’s
a bunch of different options in there. One thing you might find, is like mine. It runs a little bit slow if you
pick some really hardcore brushes… in some of these other ones
that Kyle’s designed. Just the sole symmetry thing’s
a little stressful on my machine. And I really hope–
I’m going to do something amazing. And I got started, like we did here. And kind of looks like a ran over pizza. I was hoping for glory. I even got my Wacom out of the
cupboard for you. You are welcome. I got the solution, select them all. Just smush them down,
and you know what’s coming. The world is a better place.
Alright, on to the next feature. We’re getting close to the end. I’m going to throw these last kind of
three into this one amazing image. It’s my favorite stock image,
it’s not only a stock image… it’s one shared by the photographer,
Charles Deluvio, sorry dude. On Unsplash, go check him out. Then we’ll do a bit of
a wrap-up afterwards. Kind of a next steps thing. This one here, I’m going
to use the Pen Tool. I’ve got a Stroke, I’ve got the Fill. I’m just going to draw
a set of red glasses on him. For no reason other than to
show you this feature. If you worked on a document where–
this is not too bad… because the default’s blue,
and the background’s kind of bluey… but it’s quite thin,
and a little bit hard to see. You can, now in Photoshop,
go up to this little cog. So I’m working on my Pen Tool,
go to this cog. You can say, actually I want to see it
a lot thicker, giant sized. So you can see it nice and easy,
and also pick a different color. Nice high contrast one. Rubber Band’s quite cool as well. If I start another shape over here,
can you see, it’s actually connected to it. Illustrator does that by default now. You can decide whether
you like that thing… because without it, if you forget… it’s that kind of like,
hope and guess what it’s going to do. If you’re okay with the Pen Tool,
then it’s fine. If you’re a newbie,
turn that rubber banding on. It will give you a hand. Alright, back to this guy,
I love him so much. Alright, three more simple things.
I’m going to grab the Brush Tool. Where is it? There. I’m going to make a new layer, and under
Colors here, this is the Color Cube, right? So we’ve been using this forever. And it’s handy, but they’ve
made a handier one. It’s called Color Wheel. And it just means you’ve got the Hue
all the way around… and the color loops back on itself… rather than that weird slider that kind
of stops it red, then goes back to red. This one here, just a nice easy way
to pick the Hue. And within that Hue, you’ve got the option
of like a fully saturated… and then you can start washing it out
all the way to white… or darkening up to black,
and anywhere in between. It’s common in some other kind of fields. Like some of the video work in Premiere,
and it is just quite handy. Especially, I love the Hue & Saturation,
and brightness. RGB is weird,
especially when it’s a slider… but this here is quite nice. So we’re not doing it for
anything else other than to– I had this man, a little–
it’s meant to be a mustache. Wears a mustache on a Toco. So that’s one feature, the Color Wheel. The other one is ‘Window’, ‘Workspace’. Lock the workspace,
in fact just turned it on. And what it means is
you can’t move these or break them. And why would you do that?
You might just like it… you might have got it sorted,
but really it’s for people working on… computers that actually are touchscreens… like the Microsoft Surface
or the Surface Studio… or the Wacom Cintiq. I’ll show you one, this is the new one
from Microsoft. I think it only got released or
talked about yesterday. That’s why all these
images are, ‘A day ago’. We can actually work on these. It’s a full operating system, you can
actually start drawing on top of it. And that can be problematic
when panels starts moving around. So that option is for you… and our last one before we wrap up
and talk about next steps, is ‘View’… and this one here, ‘Horizontal’,
this one here, ‘Flip Horizontal’. Just flips it over, just temporarily… it’s not like done, it’s not like
‘Edit’, ‘Transform’, ‘Flip Horizontal’. It’s just there to do quick kind of checks. That’s why it’s at the end, I can’t
work out a reason for this, if I’m honest. Adobe told me it’s because
artists like to check symmetry. You might leave a comment if you like,
yeah, totally I love that idea. So it’s not finished, it’s just
kind of like a temporary flipping. You can work on it
but it is just a view change. Alright, let’s jump to real Dan
to wrap things up. Say goodbye to the pug. Alright, my friend, you’ve made it
to the end. Long video, I know. If we’ve only just met,
I’m Daniel Scott… and I’ve got a bonus for you,
for making it to the end. It’s a printable cheat sheet,
like cheat sheet shortcuts. Not sure why I’m doing this,
but it’s about that big. You can print it off, stick it next
to your computer, it’s free. Go check it out on There’s a resources tab,
there’s a bunch of other shortcuts. Yeah, worksheets in there as well. What else can you do?
I’ve done– this is the Photoshop 2019. I’ve also done updates for… Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects,
Premiere, XD, Animate, Dreamweaver. Go check out those if you like them. And yeah, I will see you,
hopefully in another course. haere rā, good people.

    Hmmm… I recently bought ultracheap Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer and am also fond of practicing my skills in free Krita, free Inkscape and the famous Xara Designer I bought long ago. And seeing your video i get the feeling that Photoshop is trying to catch up with the things that some or all of these other apps can do and/or could do ages ago, and in much more intuitive ways… If you ask me, it is too little too late, lotts of different flavours of the same old peanuts, for which you pay extra because of the brandname. But…maybe i am wrong and Photoshop is really much better than all the rest… However… seeing this video, I am not convinced

    Wonder if they fixed real issues,
    Like after you have liquified something and then you use the Pentool, you driver for openGL freaks out and you can no longer zoom in and out smoothly. Its sluggish and broken.
    Or when you hold the ALT key and then its selected the menu bar up top. Where all you want to do is remove an arm on a node when using the pen tool to deep etch.
    Windows users of course.

  • Reply Luuk Akkerman October 17, 2018 at 10:07 am

    Quirk/issue #1:
    It seems you cannot change the frame after you created it. Even if it is a Photoshop drawn shape layer, you cannot control your shape points. Quite annoying now as you want to change this frame shape a bit later (or at least, this is how I use vector clipping masks a lot).

    And although you can delete (not seperate) the frame from its content after linking, you cannot separate the content easily. Like dragging it back out of this frame in the layer list. You can right click the frame layer and relink/replace external content etc. But if you used an existing layer on a frame, you can only delete the frame+content or frame only leaving you with the content layer but no frame shape layer anymore.

    So for both issues that might be fixed later, it is good to always use a COPY of your shape as a frame so you have the hidden original as backup layer.

  • Reply Luuk Akkerman October 17, 2018 at 10:12 am

    Quirk/issue #2:
    Did you notice the shift/no-shift key change for transforming objects was applied only on normal rasterized layers and smart objects.
    Shape layers and paths do require the same shift-use as before (shift for retaining ratio).

    I like the not-shift and think after getting used to it it leads to less unintended slight ratio changes, but this difference between different types of layers is now confusing and starts some small frustration.

  • Reply Stefan ZMeliny October 17, 2018 at 10:53 am

    I do not have those new warp tool options from~22:08, only old, standard ones. (Photoshop CC 20.0, updated from cloud). Does anybody has the same?

  • Reply Kacper October 17, 2018 at 11:01 am

    Hm.. I am using new Photoshop on PC today and regarding transformation tool – there is very strange behaviour… If I transform any selection, or layer, which isn't smart object – I don't need to press Shift to transform it proportionally. But when I transform any smart object – I need to press Shift – to transfrorm proportionally.. And when I select for example two layers – both are smart objects – again – I don't need to press Shift to transform it proportionally.. This is probably some kind of bug… I can see that in your movie – you transform layer logo and it constrains proportions without pressing Shift… so it is even more strange for me…

    I have synthesized the new ones in PTS 2019, if you want to review any tools that may be convenient to find again:

    1. Content – Aware Fill. ( 2:05)
    2. Free Transform Tool (A little bit changed and fast more): (5:44)
    3. Content – Aware Scale: (6:14)
    4. Frame Tool: (7:34)
    5. Blending Mode List can be scrub through and see the change on the layer when you go through each option. (16:19)
    6. Select -> Subject ( It'll be cool than old version ) ( 16:41)
    7. Warp ( 20:24)
    8. Distribute Spacing ( 24:41)
    9. SYMMETRY painting ( 26:00)
    10. Somethings with Path and Color ( 30:00)

    Hope you fun! :))

  • Reply Andeh Gordon October 18, 2018 at 1:51 pm

    i was super excited for the frames tool, but ive found its way too glitchy and sporadic at the minute when trying to implement frames in projects i already have set up. for example, i have a folder layer which is hidden, but its got an image in it. When i create a new frame and it happens to be over where that image is, it will create a new frame in the hidden folder with that image stuck inside it. As a web designer, i work a lot with hidden folders to toggle what dropdowns would look like etc.

    Its a downside, but i think when working with new projects, i'll try implement them sooner rather than later!

    p.s. great video guide, it was good to get some deeper explanations on the new tools. Thanks for that! 🙂

  • Reply Stephen Harrell October 19, 2018 at 4:35 am

    The flipping horizontal thing is something digital painters/illustrators have been asking forever for. We use it constantly. It’s one of the biggest advantages to working digitally. You can develop “sight fatigue” while working on a piece and that big flip forces you to see everything with fresh eyes. You can spot obvious errors or rendering problems quickly by using it. It’s almost magical because it’s similar to getting up and taking a 10 min break from painting and coming back to see what needs work.

    Good tip I found for those who didn't like the new way of transforming things.

    "For anybody who wants to revert back to the old faithful way of doing things, this is the method to do so from John McAssey in the thread:
    To revert to the legacy transform behavior, do the following:

    Use Notepad (Windows) or a text editor on Mac OS to create a plain text file (.txt).
    Type the text below in the text file:

    TransformProportionalScale 0

    Save the file as "PSUserConfig.txt" to your Photoshop settings folder:
    Windows: [Installation Drive]:Users[User Name]AppDataRoamingAdobeAdobe Photoshop CC 2019Adobe Photoshop CC 2019 Settings
    macOS: //Users/[User Name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop CC 2019 Settings/"
