Adobe Launches Photoshop Beta Program

From PC Mag: Adobe is debuting a beta testing program for its flagship Photoshop image-editing software for Creative Cloud subscribers. The company also announced updates to Photoshop on desktop as well as the iPad app version, with the addition of the venerable Healing Brush and Magic Wand tools finally making their way to the tablet. It all goes live today.

A beta program allows users to test new features before their official release and to provide feedback to the software developer. In order to get Photoshop betas, users simply open the Creative Cloud application management utility and select the preview version in a new Beta section of available app installations. There’s no direct link to feedback, however: Users need to head to Adobe’s community forum and tag posts as beta-related.

The new Get More Skies option in Photoshop’s Sky Replacement tool lets you choose from up to 5,000 sky backgrounds, including night scenes, fireworks, and sunsets.

With the Transform Warp tool, the update adds the ability to independently move Bezier handles. You can also now change the color and opacity of the warp guidelines so you don’t lose them in similarly colored backgrounds.
