Here’s the brand new edition of a very handy resource from James Wamser – a complete reference to all versions and features of Adobe Photoshop from CS1 to CC 2019… Similar to his InDesign and Illustrator handbooks, it’s called the Adobe Photoshop New Features Guide: From CS to CC – and this 97-page ebook is available for free download now:
This PDF guidebook comprehensively reviews and compares what’s new in each successive revision of Photoshop from the first CS version in 2003 all the way up to the current CC 2019 release – and covers the details of all the major new features and material improvements along the way.
It’s an impressive compilation of what many people want to know when they ask what’s different between versions… Typically you’ll find articles (like this one) that give the primary differences between two single releases, but never before has there been coverage as exhaustive as Mr. Wamser has carefully compiled with this work – and you can get it instantly here:
Just look for the “Download PDF” icon at the lower right of your browser, once you pull up the book.
It’s also very helpful to consult when you need to save back for previous versions of Photoshop (where the featuresets and file formats are older) – this way you’ll know which capabilities prior releases can support, and which they cannot.
Special: Legally download dozens of free Adobe books for a limited time!
Here’s the story on how this guidebook was put together:
