Adobes’ (I hope that apostrophe’s in the right place) Photoshop CS5 was released at the end of April, yet I’ve only just got round to playing with it. I’m not a professional photographer or anything like that so I can’t justify the full cost of buying it, which I think is something ridiculous like $1,000 for the extended edition. However, Adobe does offer a 30 day trial of the software. It’s quite a big download, 1Gb, but well worth the wait.
I’ve never really used Photoshop before, so I’m currently at the stage of reading/watching online to tutorials, but so far I’m just fixed on the ‘Content-Aware’ fill feature that’s new in CS5. I’ve used it to create the images you see below. They’re not taken with a Good camera, I just used them to show how less than 5 minutes work can really improve nearly any photograph you may have. This only used one feature!
