Photoshop CC 2017

I guess we skipped 2016 completely. 

Photoshop CC 2017 was introduced at the AdobeMax conference yesterday and is available for download today. The major new features are:

  • In-app search. Ever wonder where something is or how to use it? In essence, the new search function is a bit search, a bit more integrated help. 
  • Enhanced Properties panel. This is an interesting and useful change that keeps more information where you can (and expect to) see it, but on crowded laptop screens I’m not sure it’s as much a benefit. On my big display, hallelujah. 
  • Adobe Camera Raw 9.7. Now with support for pressure-sensitive devices (think brush flow). Support for iPhone raw DNG, Canon 5D Mark IV, GoPro Hero5, and Nikon D3400.

Oh, Adobe lists nine other things, many of them better integration with other Adobe products and services, but the only one there that really will appeal to photographers is “performance improvements.”
