Adobe has recently announced the release of the latest version of its popular image-editing software, Photoshop 24.6. This update includes several improvements to the software’s layers system. It is a fundamental component of the software allowing users to organize different elements of an image.
One of the most noteworthy enhancements in Photoshop 24.6 is the addition of non-destructive painting on text and shape layers. You can also do it on video layers and smart objects.
This feature allows users to create new brush strokes on a separate layer, rather than over the existing content. So, users can make changes and experiment with different effects without losing the original content of the image.
Another significant improvement in Photoshop 24.6 is the option to deselect a layer intentionally while using the Move tool. This can be useful when you want to select a different layer without accidentally moving the current layer.
Additionally, the Layers and Tools panels now have new tooltips with short embedded videos, making it easier for users to learn and discover the different features of the software.
New effects and control options for iPad 4.7
In addition to the desktop version of the software, Adobe has also released an update for the iPad edition of Photoshop. The Photoshop on the iPad 4.7 update includes the Stroke and Drop shadow layer effects from the desktop version.
Also, it provides more control options when double-tapping with the Apple Pencil. This is great news for iPad users who want to take advantage of the powerful features of Photoshop on a portable device.
Pricing and system requirements for the latest version
Pricing for the software is available on a rental-only basis, with plans starting at $31.49 per month for single-app Photoshop subscriptions and $119.88 per year for photography subscription plans.
The new plan also includes access to Lightroom and Photoshop. The latest update, Photoshop 24.6, is available for Windows 10+ and macOS 11.0+.
The latest version of Photoshop offers several useful improvements that will make it easier for users to create and edit images. Whether you’re a professional photographer or a hobbyist, Photoshop 24.6 is definitely worth checking out.
