Default Photoshop CS5 Sneak Peek

Found this on a group the other day..

http://www.bigstockphoto.com/blog/th...p-cs5-preview/

I'm really impressed with the improvements to the Spot Healing Brush. The new Content Control will certainly make it easier to clone out an object.

Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

As a student you get a cut rate price too, Look for it before you pay full price.

I've been using the trial for almost two weeks now, and I've got to say that content-aware fill really isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially on small selections.

It was released this week. If my "sources" come through, I should have the CS5 "master suite" by Sunday!

Just installed it. I can give more feedback after I have time to play around with it if there is interest.

I wouldn't mind some reviews from a rail photography point of view. I've been strongly considering upgrading to the more powerful CS5, and I'm especially curious about the content aware and how effective it is for items such as removing massive headlight flares, tree trimming, and so on. I get by pretty well with PSE6, but there are things I'd like to be able to do that PSE6 can't handle.

It seems to have problems with trains or other elements that have less random lines. It would be better if it would detect horizontal or vertical lines better.

I haven't noticed a ton of improvements on CS5. One of the most substantial improvements was the upgrade of the clone tool and the addition of "content aware" which enables photographers to lasso (select) a particular element, hit the delete key, select content aware (Normal, 100% ect.) and it'll automatically remove it and try to fill it in based on what is around the image.

Pretty much identical to the cloning tool, although far more accurate and in some cases easier to work with.

Other than what was mentioned above, I noticed very few upgrades or improvements. That's not to say other upgrades haven't been made, but from a railfans perspective, I've found the program to be very similar to CS4.

Hmm.... sounds like those who purchase the $200.00 upgrade with no need for Content Aware are perhaps content unaware. LOL. What if you hook up a web cam and aim it at yourself - lasso yourself and then hit delete and use the content aware feature? Would you be able to tell us more then?
