Photoshop CS4 And The Nature Photographer
The gold standard in imaging software has been updated. OP takes you through the new features most useful to nature photographers.
The Adjustment Panel
The first thing you’ll notice in CS4 is an Adjustment panel at the right side of the interface where palettes traditionally have been. The engineers working on Lightroom and Photoshop talk with each other because the interface uses ideas that work so well with Lightroom (Figure 1).
This panel offers direct access to adjustment layers, which are called Adjustments, layer masks, which are called Masks, plus the usual layers, history and so forth. By putting Adjustments and Masks into one accessible location, Adobe has made working with adjustment layers and layer masks faster and easier. You don’t have to open individual dialog boxes or search for your adjustments, as they’re out in the open, ready to go, just like in Lightroom. This can make a huge difference in workflow. In addition, some new icons at the bottom of the panel allow you to quickly affect how your adjustments are being made.
