 5 Hidden Gems in Photoshop CC (15.5)

Discover new features and enhancements made to Artboards including new background color properties and easier duplication of layers and layer groups, Adjustment layer support for Looks and Fill layer support for Patterns created in Capture CC, read-only Library Collaboration, and new export options for embedding color profiles and additional Artboard improvements.

Note: because of the new background color support, Artboard backgrounds export as visualized on the canvas (i.e. if you see a background, you will get that when you export – you must set transparency to export as transparent).

The visual representation of “transparency” as a checkerboard works the same in Artboard documents as it does in regular canvases. Therefore, if you have changed your Preferences > Transparency & Gamut to None, then you will not see the checkerboard representing transparency in an Artboard.

Working with Artboards in Photoshop CC

In this video, Julieanne demonstrates how Artboards can increase your productivity when designing multiple versions of an image within a single document, as well as the new features and enhancements added to Artboards in the November release of Photoshop CC 2015.

And here are three additional Artboard feature enhancements that I didn’t point out in the above video:
1) You can hide the name of the Artboards using View > Show > Artboard Names.
2) “Snap To” behavior has been improved when using the marquee on Artboard (View > Snap To > Artboard Bounds).
3) You can change the matte color and border type for Artboards under Preferences > Interface.
