At first glance, the new GUI (graphic user interface) was completely new. I did not like it initially, but after watching the video, I immediately realized how much better it is. It allows me to focus on the image at hand and everything else almost visually disappears. It would have been nice if they gave us an option to change interface preferences, (light, medium, dark).
The most exciting feature to me is the auto save feature. Finally Adobe, good job! That’s one everyone will be happy about.
Thankfully I haven’t had a crash in Photoshop (knock on wood) but it’s one feature I will be activating.
I hope it runs more efficiently than CS5 (closer to how CS3 ran) but I doubt it.
I don’t like how they are cramming 3D into Photoshop. They should leave that alone in it’s own program, but hey I guess that’s what the public wants. If I could get everything Photoshop has sans the 3D, it would probably also run much faster too. I would buy that.
