Adobe has recently launched its best version of Photoshop CS5, which can go beyond the walls of technology as compared to the prior editions. Though some of its new features are confusing for the users of old versions but it does have a number of significant useful tools that are more powerful than ever before.
Top Photoshop CS5 Features
You have a lot of cs5 training options and resources available both online and offline to get you going in this field. Below is a list of few healing tools that can help you in getting rid of those unsightly blemishes, whether it’s for a professional portfolio or a family album.
Spot Healing Brush
The Spot Healing Brush has been placed In the Adobe Photoshop since the beginning. It was first introduced in CS2 for the repair of problematic areas in the image while taking portraits of models. As it is a retouching tool, it is strong, fast and powerful. It does whatever it says in an immediate response, enabling you to touch up the images within a real quick timeframe. Up till the most recent version of the Adobe Photoshop, the Spot Healing Brush requires no input as it is an automatic tool. It’s an indiscriminate tool, as it works by finding a random color tone nearby, and then fills in the selected area for you; however, this is problematic in larger areas as it shows up. This can also result in negative effects, as the color selected by the tool can be too different from the original colors.
Content Aware Healing
That is why CS5 has improved the working of this tool by redeveloping it to make it more precise and accurate. Though it is still automatic, but rather than searching for the closest color proximity wise, it goes for the closest color and texture in relation to the high lightened spot. It efficiently searches for what looks outstanding rather than what is the closest option. Photoshop has also renamed this tool and has given it a more accurate and suitable name. Now this tool is known as the Content-Aware-Healing feature. It heals the photos by taking the content into account, enabling more accurate and to the point corrections.
This tool can be best for the corrections on smaller areas of the image as it enables you to rid the photo of even the smallest unsightly blemishes. However, this tool is not perfect for larger spaces. Thus in order to overcome this flaw, Adobe has launched a similar tool for larger spaces. This new feature known as Content-Aware and works in the same way as the smaller feature works and the only difference is that it is in the larger spaces.
In this high tech era, the usage of high definition pictures is increasing day by day, more sophisticated and heavy duty cameras are coming on the market that allows almost everyone to take stunning in-depth pictures. However, for a professional portrait or marketing material you need a pixel perfect picture, which still cannot be acquired just by having an expensive camera. You need software like Photoshop CS5 that can further enhance your picture and make its every pixel appeal to the fullest.
