Photoshop 2020 (v21) added three new panels for organizing and applying Gradients, Patterns, and Shapes, and updated the Swatches and Styles panels. Presets can be applied by clicking on the preset in the panel, dragging and dropping the preset from the panel onto the desired layer in the Layer’s panel and/or dragging and dropping the preset from the panel onto the layer content in the canvas area.The contents of the layer (bitmap, vector, type etc.) will determine how the preset is applied: as a property of the layer, as an adjustment layer or, as a Layer Style/Effect.
With the new Capture from Image functionality in Photoshop, you can automatically create patterns, shapes, color themes, and gradients from your images.
