Photoshop’s New Object Selection Tool

This new tool can be found alongside the Quick Selection and Magic Wand tools. The Object Selection Tool allows you to make a general marquee selection around your subject, while Photoshops Sensei Technology auto selects around your subject. This new tool is fantastic for faster subject selections; without the need to paint around your subject like in the past.This tool works well even against busy backgrounds, where the quick selection tool may have fallen short in the past. It is surprisingly accurate for an auto selection tool but sometimes misses spots here and there. Not to worry, you can add or take away from your selections with the Object Selection Tool by holding SHIFT or ALT/OPT.Still not getting what you need with a preset grid pattern? Make your own! With the warp tool selected and set to default, just hold ALT or OPTION and click to add a new grid point. Continue adding grid points till your little heart’s content.
For some this may seem like a downgrade, so Adobe has left you with the option of using Legacy Free Transform. Go Photoshop > Preferences > General > Use Legacy Free Transform to change back to the old ways of free transform.

Smart Objects To Layers

Smart objects are a vital feature in Photoshop and most creators use them constantly. In previous versions on Photoshop, layers merged into a smart object could only be reopened as layers in a new document. There was no way to bring those layers back into the original layers panel efficiently.In Photoshop CC 2020 you can now convert smart objects back to layers by right clicking and going to ‘Convert To Layers’.

This is a huge improvement in my opinion and a new feature I will find myself utilizing constantly.

Improved Preset Panel

Adobe has completely rethought the preset panel in Adobe Photoshop CC. The preset panel, across a variety of tools, is significantly more organized; with more available preset options across shapes, gradients, brushes, and text.

My favourite update to the preset panels is in the gradient editor. Now gradients are organized by a wide variety of colours with dozens more options than previously.

Adobe Cloud Documents

In the latest update to Photoshop CC you can now save your files to Adobe Cloud. This makes working from multiple locations or computers a breeze; being able to access your cloud files anywhere you have internet connection. Now you can access your Photoshop files where ever you go. Score!

Brush Tool Updates In Photoshop CC 2020

There has been a slight update to the brush tool in Photoshop CC 2020 allowing you to rotate brushes and swap to the eraser with a simple keyboard shortcut.You can now rotate your brush simply by pressing on the arrow keys on your keyboard. This is drastically more efficient than the old way through the brush preset panel.

Through this new dialogue box you also can also save your content-aware adjustments onto a new layer. It all works very similarly to the select and mask feature you are likely already familiar with.So that’s it! A handful of highly useful updates in the latest version of Photoshop CC. What do you think of these new updates? What do you feel like Adobe should still improve on? Let me know in the comments!Happy Editing,-Brendan
