By Stephanie Jackson

On Wednesday, April 16, 2014

#4

As with the previous versions of Adobe Photoshop, the CS5 is divided into three different parts, Adobe Bridge CS5, Adobe Camera Raw 6 and Adobe Photoshop. I will only explain features of Photoshop, that is what concerns us. In regards of photo edition, Adobe Photoshop is the most famous software nowadays. It has just a few new features regarding the workspace compared to the CS4 version. Nevertheless, the organization of the toll bars has been a bit improved. The Content-Aware is the key feature of this new version. In the previous edition, the key feature was the ability to rescale an image without altering the dimensions of the items of the image. Now, the protagonist is Content-Aware, and it allows the users to removetheelement of the image and replace it with the background. Nevertheless, it is not as new and useful as you can think. It is true that artist and photographers will be pleased to remove things with less work, but the result will require a retouch almost all the times you use it, either manually or using the pad tool.

Pros

  • Content- Aware feature is useful
  • The software is very powerful
  • It allows you to retouch images profesionally

Cons

  • It is too much expensive
  • It uses to much system resources

Adobe Photoshop CS5

The image retouch software that everyone must have at home

By Lily P. Evans

On Tuesday, April 1, 2014

Photoshop CS5 is graphics editor software with which you can retouch your images and make them look professional. You can use it to modify simple things such as hair color, make-up mistakes, etc. but this is only a little part of what you can do with this Photoshop.

In terms of the new features of the CS5 version, I could highlight the new and more efficient interface that allows storing the workspaces automatically and change quickly amongst them. Adobe has also improved the technology of the smart selection. Now, to remove backgrounds is quite easier than in the previous versions of this program.. However, the most important change, in my opinion, is that now I have the ability to transform images without changing all the areas. Thanks to this option, you can deform just an area of your picture, and the rest can stand still.

The last thing I have to mention in this review is the HDR Pro tool. It is specially used by photographers since it allows you to retouch the tones, making them more powerful. With this tool, you can create images with a high dynamic range and make surrealistic images from regular ones.

Pros

  • Lots of new features in CS5 version
  • It is easy when you get used to it
  • You can make your images look professional
  • Useful tools to imporve your pictures

Cons

  • The full version is expensive
  • CS5 is a bit outdated due to CC
  • Demo version can be used just a few days
  • It can be difficult to master

In my opinion, this software is good as its previous edition or even better. In this version, it consists of various tools that are very helpful to make your images much better.

Updated Version with All the Previous Powerful Features Still Intact and New Tools to Boot

By Rose Sincro

On Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Although Adobe released the updated Photoshop CS5, I learned that it still retained most of its powerful features that everybody just loves. The versatile photo and image editing software has even become a more unbeatable industry standard program through the combination of its old and new features.

Many of its popular tools such as auto correct focus distortion, noise elimination in photos, accurate object alignment were combined with innovative tools. First off the list is the Content Aware tool. It has the capability to remove unwanted objects in a photo or image. It can also move objects into another image file. Another off the list is Photoshop CS5’s flexible work modes where users can choose from an array of work environments.

Despite all the useful features that Adobe Photoshop CS5 offers, I can’t recommend it to beginners. You have to take time to learn and understand this somewhat simple, yet complicated software. On the contrary, there is no need to worry for beginners. Because of the software’s popularity, many online tutorials have sprouted all over the web.

Pros

  • Implemented improvements on old tools and features
  • Includes new photo and image editing features

Cons

  • Takes time to learn and master

Thanks to its many tools and functions that are unique to its version, Adobe Photoshop CS5 has redefined digital image and photo editing. The recent additions are high-tech, improving workflow, and provides a seamless and smooth work environment.

In entirety, Adobe Photoshop CS5 is divided according to its specific functions. These three distinctive parts are the Adobe Bridge, which is the photo manager; the Adobe Camera RAW, a plug-in for RAW images; and of course, Photoshop itself. Each of these parts works distinctively, yet they are all perfect for each other. They made my life easier by providing tools and functions for image editing that are user friendly.

Another good news is that the interface of Adobe Photoshop CS5 is almost the same with the previous version. The familiar façade makes it easier to locate favorite functions.

Adobe Photoshop CS5

An Image Editing Software with Lots of Features at Your Disposal

By Ivy Paloma

On Monday, May 5, 2014

I usually just use basic or simple programs whenever I need to edit images for a project, but there were times when the features are not enough for me to accomplish the output I am expecting. When I first tried Adobe Photoshop CS5, I found it too complicated but I was determined to learn how to use it. I am glad I did because I really like its features.

With Adobe Photoshop CS5, I can eliminate noises, perform automatic correction, align the objects in a photo, manage the colors, etc. It does have a lot of complex options, but I only just use the basic stuff that I really need. When I have time, I can play around its other functions like the Content-Aware Fill for objects that I want to remove in a photo; Puppet Warp for modifying parts or cells in a picture; Camera Raw 6 for importing images from my digicam and many more.

When it comes to the interface, many users may find it overwhelming, especially if you do not have a technical background. It takes time and patience if you want to master all the tricks and the range of functions that the program offers. On the other hand, managing your pictures and photo albums is pretty easy.

Pros

  • Lots of improvement on features and other functions
  • Expanded camera compatibility because of new plugin
  • You can enhance your pictures like a pro

Cons

  • Learning all the features can be difficult
