Photoshop CS5


I just got the trial version of CS5 at Sony to try out and present to the studio. I've been playing with the brushes this morning and there are some really cool additions. Anyone familiar with the Photoshop kingdom knows that we've been waiting for this for a long time! The brush bristles now follow the direction of the line. Photoshop now dynamically tracks the angle of your stylus and interprets it like this.

The paint brushes look cool, but are they fast? Painter has a lot of cool brushes too, but I never use most of them because they make the program chug.

It was pretty fast with the single stroke, but I should test it out on a full illustration to really see how it handles.

Another thing I forgot to mention is that this dynamic following only applies to certain brushes.

i like the new blending brush thing, too. I don't really get how to use it yet, but it definitely looks amazing.

yeah, that blending brush is cool. Not as workable as Painter still, but still awesome.
