Photoshop CC 2015.5

Better collaboration with Libraries

Manage distribution of read-only Creative Cloud Libraries so they can be used by team members, but not changed or deleted. Send a link to a shared library and followers will receive automatic updates, so everyone's always working with the latest version.

Updated Libraries panel

Find the assets you need faster with new filtered search of the Adobe Stock and icons that make it easy to identify licensed Stock assets.

Selection and Masking Space

This new dedicated workspace helps you make precise selections and masks more easily than ever. Use tools like Refine Edge Brush to cleanly separate foreground and background elements.

Everyday tasks, accelerated

Photoshop CC opens documents faster and delivers greater responsiveness. Plus, Content-Aware Fill is up to 3X faster with even better results, and the Font menu shows lists of fonts up to 4X faster.

Content-Aware Crop

Photoshop uses Content-Aware technology to intelligently fill in the gaps when you use the Crop tool to rotate an image or expand your canvas beyond the image's original size.

Match Font

Photoshop can now analyze, identify and match Latin fonts from an image or photo, taking the guesswork out of finding the perfect font for your design.

Improved artboards

Now you can duplicate a layer or layer group into other artboards, quickly change artboard backgrounds, and view artboards with transparent backgrounds.

Export enhancements

A new checkbox makes it a snap to embed color profiles in PNG or JPG files.

Adjust facial features

Face-Aware Liquify automatically identifies eyes, noses, mouths, and other facial features and then makes it easy to adjust them. Great for retouching portraits.

Work easier with glyphs

Apply alternate glyphs for specific characters directly from an in-context menu.

3D printing to Microsoft 3MF

Windows 10 users: Preserve all the rich color and texture of your 3D models by printing directly to Microsoft’s open-source 3MF format.

Create patterns with Capture CC

Use Capture CC on your mobile device to turn any image into a pattern. Save it to a Creative Cloud Library, and then use it as a pattern or pattern fill in your Photoshop projects.

Showcase your work with Adobe Portfolio

Now when you use Adobe Portfolio to create a beautiful website to show off your Photoshop images, you can include custom landing and contact pages to better connect with viewers.

Works with Adobe Experience Design CC (Preview)

Copy and paste your Photoshop CC assets directly into Adobe XD, the new all-in-one tool for designing and prototyping user experiences for websites and mobile apps.

And so much more

Also includes: A new preference to use the legacy Healing Brush, improved responsiveness of touch gestures, new options when exporting artboards, and so much more.

Illustrator CC

Better collaboration with libraries

Updated Libraries panel

Fast export of assets and artboards

Select individual assets from one or more artboards, or choose entire artboards, and click once to export them to multiple sizes, resolutions and formats perfect for screen, web and icon workflows.

Live Shapes and Transform panel updates

A consistent visual experience makes it easier to work with Live Shapes. Controls automatically hide as shapes are scaled to small sizes, and polygons maintain live characteristics after non-uniform scaling. Plus, shapes and paths can be reset to their original rotation in the Transform panel.

GPU performance and animated zoom
