New Photoshop enhancements, live-coded for your pleasure

At last week’s Photoshop world, a small group of engineers tried something new & fun: applying small bits of polish & picking off little annoyances in the app, all coded live at the show. After taking suggestions via Twitter and Facebook, the engineers whipped up the following:

  • On a background layer, one click on the lock icon unlocks the layer
  • Set custom background color in New Document dialog
  • Set the background color in File -> New
  • Curves adjustments support negative numbers
  • See recent colors in the Swatches panel
  • Add more than 4 color samplers in Info panel
  • Change all color samplers in Info palette at the same time

Look for these tweaks to arrive in Photoshop CC later this year. In the meantime, Adobe’s video team is soliciting JDI requests. Let ‘em know what you’d like to see!
