Photohops CS5 | PatchMatch Feature – O M G!

Just when I thought I had seen it all I stumble over a few more features coming up in the next edition of the most used image processing software Photoshop. I’ve always been very satisfied with Photoshop and what it always deliver in my day to day work. The amount of sheer power it sustains is just one of the reasons why it is so successful among designers and artists. So, can it get any better?

Well, at first i thought that the next leap that Adobe would take with CS5 was just another minor update with features that you somewhat don’t use but are there and always ready to make your work just a little easier. Then, I found this clip. In all my prior CS5 articles the features have been awesome yet somewhat expected. Then this new and totally awesome feature comes along and changes all that.

The feature, conveniently named “PatchMatch” is something I could never have foreseen. At least not in at least 3-4 version from now. I really have no other way to describe it more than that it is one of the coolest features I have seen in Photoshop. The work flow of it is just genius and as it seems you don’t have to be a Photoshop wizard or guru in order to use it which will be really handy for the newer and more novice users of Adobe’s powerhouse Photoshop.

Just have a look at this amazing clip and sit in awe of its possibilities. Soon reality is Photoshopped to the point where for example going to Egypt to check out the Pyramids is going to be something entirely new and genuine as the pictures of them will always be perfect. In reality, not so… Enjoy!
