Adobe Systems is building technology into Photoshop to take the blur out of photos.
The company demonstrated the upcoming Photoshop deblurring filter in a video today to promote its upcoming Adobe Max conference in May, where the company no doubt will announce the feature and others.
"Camera shake reduction is a tool that allows one to deblur an image that would have been otherwise lost," said Zorana Gee, senior Photoshop product manager, in the video. "It works really great for shots taken under low-light conditions or slow shutter speeds," she added, conditions where camera shake is … Read more
Adobe Photoshop CS6 only strengthens the benchmark software's existing position as the unrivaled production suite and an indispensable tool for old and new generation creative minds: graphic designers, web developers, video editors, you name it.
Let's start with the interface: dark is good. Photoshop CS6 brings a darker, more focused default work environment, with menus and toolbars painted in dark grays and blacks. Of course, if you're itching for a brighter look, CS6 gives users lighter-colored interfaces, reminiscent of previous versions. Tools are more streamlined thanks to Adobe's continuing move towards collapsible menus, while leaving the … Read more
Some things are hard to believe.
Is it possible that "Dancing With The Stars" is still on television? Is it possible that Victoria's Secret is creating lingerie for tweens? And how likely is it that Dennis Rodman really is a better friend to Kim Jong-un than is Eric Schmidt?
Actually, talking of North Korea, how likely is it that the country has a myriad of hovercraft, hovering in readiness to invade, say, North Carolina?
I wonder only because the country's Central News Agency released a photograph this week that showed many hovercraft in action.
Yet now … Read more
Toss a creative challenge at CNET readers and they always step up. Yesterday, we asked for help jazzing up the above picture of Mark Zuckerberg speaking to the media at Facebook's event.
The company announced changes to its News Feed, with Zuckerberg repeatedly using the phrase "personalized newspaper" to describe the direction of the site's core feature. We thought this photo needed a bit of personalization itself, and that's where our readers came in. Zombies and superheroes, anyone? … Read more
Facebook today unveiled changes to its News Feed which, among other things, incorporate larger images and allow for more customization.
Speaking of customization, we'd really like to see what our impressively creative readers can do with this snap of Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg getting swarmed by the media during today's Q&A at Facebook headquarters. Fire up the Photoshop and get to work, pholks. What brilliant/outlandish/hilarious flourishes can you add to this picture? Send us your doctored photo and give us your best caption to go with your visual embellishments. We can't wait to … Read more
In a lot of ways I agree with the sarcastic comment by "turrrible_turrrible" on my writeup of the Photoshop Touch for Phone announcement: "Every time I use Photoshop I wish it was on a much smaller screen with less features!" That (worded differently) was my initial reaction when briefed about the software, along with visions of my fat-fingeredness on the tablet version translating to utter frustration when trying to operate the program on a pint-size screen. Surprisingly, I experienced only a few of the expected frustrations, but still, some operations just don't translate well from … Read more
It's taken the company a lot longer than I'd expected, but Adobe has finally rolled out a version of its tablet-based Photoshop Touch for even smaller screens, Photoshop Touch for phone.
The most surprising aspect is that it's a feature-identical version of the tablet software; I'm not sure we need such a complete editor on anything even as big as a Galaxy S3. But if you have a yen to composite up to 16 layers (or 3 layers at the maximum file size of 12 megapixels), you'll be able to do so on any Android (… Read more
The museum published the software yesterday, following up on its earlier release of the source code underlying Apple's original MacPaint.
Source code is what humans write -- in Photoshop 1.0's case the brothers Thomas and John Knoll. The initial Photoshop is written in written 128,000 lines of code, a combination of the high-level Pascal programming language and low-level assembly-language instructions. When converted to … Read more
