Adobe has made a large number of updates to its suite of Creative Cloud apps today. While most of the main apps have extra features for designers and film makers to try out, the main changes revolve around a few major additions to Photoshop, as well as a deeper integration with Adobe Stock, increasing the library of content available to use as well as making it easier to add content to a project, and notice of an upcoming change for users to make money from their own creations.

Photoshop now introduces a "content-aware crop" feature that can automatically fill in gaps in an image, when the canvas is expanded beyond the original size of the image. Face-Aware Liquify will let users alter the facial features of a person in an image, while still keeping the face in proportion, allowing for subjects with a frown or neutral face to look happier, for example. The Match Font tool can be used to recognize the font in an image, advising what licensed font is used, and suggesting fonts already on the computer or available to license via Adobe Typekit.



For video, After Effects CC now has a Character Animation Preview mode that matches an animated character to the speech or movements of an actor. This technology previously surfaced in animated sections of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, as well as a live link by The Simpsons last month. Adobe Premiere Pro CC gains new virtual reality features, with the main addition being a "field of view" mode for previewing content.

For Adobe Stock, the company has now expanded the library to over 55 million royalty-free photographs, videos, illustrations, and graphics for its users to use within projects. A one-click workflow now adds stock item to the project canvas in one click, along with a one-click licensing facility. The first "Premium Content" collection within Adobe Stock now consists of close to 100,000 curated images that "meet the standards of top advertising agencies," brands, and publications.

Lastly, Adobe advises users will soon be able to contribute and monetize their work within Adobe Stock. Users can submit items from both desktop and mobile apps, with a new Stock Contributor Portal also on the way that will include intelligent auto-tagging of submitted items.

Still refuse to subscribe to Adobe. I prefer and will continue to use standalone client-side applications for as long as they're available; even if that means using GIMP.
