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.

How to learn more about the Experimental Feature Manager:

  • For a short description, mouse over the checkboxes in the Experimental Features preferences panel for a short description of each of the features
  • For more detailed information, visit the Help page for Experimental Features

We want to hear from our customers about these new Experimental Features.
Each of the Experimental Features has a dedicated feedback page:

    I have both Light Room and Photo Shop CC6 full versions. I am no longer treated like a valued customer. I now receive no upgrades, no special pricing.

    As a PC/Android user, I am left completely out in the cold. I am along time loyal customer and I am very disappointed in your decision to abandon me.

    Do you have plans to accommodate customers in my situation?

  2. Hi, just updated and experimental features isn’t on my preferences menu.

    Solved my problem of too much PS CC by restarting Photoshop and eliminating the preferences file with ctrl, alt, shift.

    I’m setting my PSCC 2014 preferences & not sure how to enable generator & remote connections in Preferences-plug-ins…the password box is prefilled with four asterisks & to enable the generator & remote connections, I’m supposed to enter a six character password …I’m afraid to delete the **** that are already there & not sure if it’s that important to enable the generator, etc. but I’m thinking that it is…I’ve been trying to find the info but no luck so far…if you can help that would be great…Thanks Helene

    I have Photoshop CC 2014 but when I go into preferences I do not have the Experimental Features option. I have run my updates and I still don’t have this. What do I need to do to enable this feature?
