Free Download: The Photoshop New Features Guidebook (97 Pages)

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 2018… Similar to his InDesign handbook, it’s called the Adobe Photoshop New Features Guide: From CS to CC – and this 97-page ebook is available for free download now:

Download the Adobe Photoshop New Features Guidebook

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.

Compare All Differences Between Any Two Versions of Adobe Photoshop

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!

If you don’t already have Photoshop installed on your machine yet, then you can just download a free trial to get started right away – and then run it for 7 days free.

    Hi, glad to read your homepage. I am a Photoshop user, I am here in Italy, I want to use the software from your website. I don’t know if I can buy it from you. I only use the Photoshop cc. how much is a one year plan, and when I don’t use the computer, can I change the software to another computer?

    thank you for reading my message.
    waiting for your reply!

  3. I tried to download the Photoshop New Features PDF, but my internet security suite won’t let me go to the site because it considers it a threat. There doesn’t seem to be any way to bypass this block. Can you help? Thanks!

    • If you have any issue like that, then make sure you’re not blocking or filtering anything with your browser(s) – like cookies, downloads, or any sites or URLs – or running utilities like Ghostery, AdBlock, or Disconnect. Or it could be your firewall, antivirus program (esp. Kaspersky), or other third-party security software.

      Adobe recommends turning those things off temporarily for downloads, which should be possible with most all of these utilities.
