2014 release of Photoshop CC: Experimental Features

With the 2014 release of Photoshop CC we’re introducing  a new concept called the Experimental Feature Manager. The Experimental Feature Manager allows customers to optionally enable bleeding edge features that the Photoshop team is still developing and making production-ready. Photoshop’s move to delivering our software via Creative Cloud allows us to deliver value to our customers faster than ever before. Now with the Experimental Feature Manager our customers can help shape the direction of some of our newest features and provide direct feedback to the team before they fully ship. As we develop new features some will be enabled via the Experimental Feature Manager for a particular release and then when the feature is completed it will become a full part of Photoshop and be removed from the Experimental Feature Manager.
Note: By default, all of the features in the Experimental Features Manager are disabled and will not affect customer workflows until they are enabled.
The following features are available as experimental features:
  1. Enable Multitione 3D printing
  2. Scale the UI 200% for high-density displays (Windows only)
  3. Use Touch Gestures (Windows only)

How to enable features in the Experimental Feature Manager

  1. Select Preferences > Experimental Features.
  2. Select the experimental feature that you want to enable.
  3. Click OK.
  4. Restart Photoshop.
