Feedback, please: A Photoshop iPad companion
In August I asked for ideas on tablet-based companions for Photoshop, and last week at MAX we demoed a paint-mixing prototype. Now the designers have taken a crack at mocking up some companion features that could run on a phone or tablet.
In a nutshell, you get:
- groups of task-based tools & commands (e.g. all your photography/retouching tools & buttons on one page, or all your painting ones, 3D ones, etc.)
- interactive, task-based tutorials that drive Photoshop, helping you get things done
The idea is to let you work faster–offering more organized access to tools & knowledge. What do you think? What would you pay for this?
Get crisp Web/screen text in Photoshop, FW
“Improved text rendering” was near the top of readers’ wish lists a few weeks back when I requested feedback on potential Web & drawing features for Photoshop, and it’s something the team is investigating. In the meantime, these links may be of interest:
- Ksenia Chernyavska provides info on creating pixel-perfect text of small size in Photoshop.
- David Hogue has posted tips on how to Simulate ClearType Text in Fireworks CS4. [Via]
Let me agree in advance that one shouldn’t need tips & that these things should Just Work™.
