Adobe dropped a new update for Photoshop and Camera Raw today.  This will affect all Photoshop, Lightroom, and After Effects users. The updates are subtle, but welcome.

Here’s what shipped this morning.

  • Automatic straightening of an image through one of the following three interactions:
    • Double-click the Straighten tool () in the toolbar.
    • With the Straighten tool selected, double-click anywhere in the preview image.
    • With the Crop tool selected, press the Command key (on Mac) or Ctrl key (on Windows) to temporarily switch to the Straighten tool. Now, double-click anywhere within the preview image.
  • Whites and Blacks now support Auto Levels-like functionality when you double-click the sliders while keeping the Shift key pressed (Shift-double-click).
  • Auto Temperature and Auto Tint functionality. Shift-double-click within the image preview to invoke this functionality.
  • Option to choose a background color for the work area and toggle the visibility of the hairline frame around the image. Right-click outside the image in the work area and select an option from the popup menu.
  • Option-click shortcut support for the Synchronize, New Preset, Save Settings, and Copy/Paste (Bridge) dialog boxes. When you option-click a checkbox, it is selected exclusively. You can option-click again to toggle to the previous checkbox state.
