CS5 PhotoshopTutorial

I've been using Adobe Photoshop since 6.0 version until what we have today which is cs5. What I can say is that Photoshop CS5 is really great! It can make a lot of magic that lower versions cannot do.

However, it doesn't mean that as long as you have the CS5 version of Photoshop, you are already a great photo editor. I can say that I still owe most of my Photoshop skills from what I learned in the lower versions. Having the latest version is great but the foundation in the knowledge in photo editing and Photoshop software is always the key to come up with good outputs.

If you are a beginner in Photoshop, I'm not saying that you need to learn those lower versions too. I'm just saying that having the knowledge in lower versions is an advantage. If you just started learning Photoshop now that it's already cs5 then that's fine. All you have to do is learn the basics for you to catch up. For everyone, let me take you to a tour to important features that you need to pay attention to in looking for cs5 Photoshop tutorial:

CS5 Photoshop Tutorial Highlight #1 - Improved Refine Edge Tool

Refine edge tool firstly appeared in Photoshop CS3 version. This tool (or I'd rather call it a window) is used to clean the photo's background leaving only the subject. I was so happy when this one appeared in CS3 but it was not yet that good that time. It can clean simple subjects (I mean subjects without furs or hairs or any complex edge) but I still needed to use the Extract filter to thorough clean the photo. If I'm not still satisfied then I'll use the layer mask to clean the photo manually.

When CS4 came, they removed the extract tool but the refine edge tool is not yet fully developed. That's the reason why I hate that version. It's like a beta version of CS5.

It's only when CS5 came that I was really amazed with the features of refine edge tool. Even the edges with hairs can now be cleaned. It's now fine that the extract tool is no longer in Photoshop since refine edge tool is already enough.

CS5 Photoshop Tutorial Highlight #2 - Content Aware Fill

This is the one that works like magic to me. Before, we use tools such as clone, healing brush or patch to cover or hide those unnecessary things in a photo. Now, with the use of this tool, all you have to do is choose the part that you wanted to remove and it's automatically gone.

CS5 Photoshop Tutorial Highlight #3 - HDR Imaging

HDR is usually achieved by capturing three photo exposures (underexposed, normal, and overexposed) and then combining them together. With Photoshop CS5, even only one exposure can do.

CS5 Photoshop Tutorial Highlight #4 - Touch Apps For iPad

Honestly, I'm not yet so familiar about this at the moment since I'm not an iPad user yet. Maybe soon, I'll try this feature too.

While learning CS5 Photoshop Tutorial, don't forget also to apply the fundamentals in photo editing. Even if there are new features that are really cool, the basic knowledge is still the foundation of photo post production.
