Intro

There’s a new Photoshop on the block but the question of committing to the subscription route depends on whether you find the new features useful or not.

In this tutorial we’re going to look at the most important new features and see how they work in practice, starting with the camera shake reduction function. Camera shake occurs because there’s not enough light coming into the camera, for the aperture and shutter speed settings, to record the image before the camera moves.

Typical instances of this are low-light photos where you don’t have a tripod, or long, telephoto shots where the shutter speed simply isn’t fast enough, or close up macro shots where again, if you don’t have a tripod, keeping the camera still enough is a problem.

Usually this would consign the image to the bin, but the new tool has the potential to rescue it.

We’re also going to look at the resizing function, using Camera RAW as a filter and the new Smart Sharpen feature.
