After having already announced the availability of Adobe Photoshop Elements 13 and Premiere Elements 13 as well as a new joined-up strategy across desktop and mobile for CC; Adobe is certainly showing no signs of slowing down. At the already very eventful AdobeMAX conference this year, the company also announced the release of Photoshop CC 2014.2: an update with a host of new features.
Usability improvements such as a new welcome screen that presents tutorial videos will help users to learn new features and techniques straight from within Photoshop, while Creative Cloud Libraries allow you to download graphics from the Adobe Market and have them available directly inside both Photoshop and Illustrator for later use.
Perhaps most exciting to many artists, however, is the fact that Photoshop now has the ability to read COLLADA rigging and animation data as well as an option to export 3D PDFs: features developed with Stanford University spin-off, Mixamo. With it, Adobe Photoshop CC users will be able to import 3D animated characters and edit them in the software for the first time, combining 2D and 3D art like never before. This also facilitates 3D printing in the software: allowing you to pose the model, then print it off easily with Photoshop’s existing 3D printing tools.
