Adobe is planning to launch the latest upgrade to its flagship software programs, Creative Suite 5, on April 12. They’ve even built a microsite with a countdown clock to get people excited about the announcement.
We remember the last upgrade, to CS4, being a bit of a yawn, so we were preparing ourselves to be underwhelmed. That is, until we found a YouTube video (spotted via Jim Goldstein’s Twitter feed) demonstrating one of the new features of the next version of Photoshop. The tool is called Content-Aware Fill and it promises to be a huge time-saver for anyone who retouches photographs. Watch the video and see for yourself!
Update, March 26: You know something’s a big deal when it spawns a parody video. Here’s More Photoshop CS5 Content-Aware Sneak Peak Awesomeness (via John Nack).
