The most exciting part of this Photoshop update is the new Object Selection Tool. Adobe is putting Sensei to good use here and this can drastically cut edit times for photographers and artists alike. Some features, however, feel a little superfluous.
- Object Selection Tool saves time
- Cloud ensures fluid workflows
- Default consistent transform useful
- Small menu adjustments are weak
- Warp tool not un-doable after committing
- Subs model not for everyone
