Version 2023.5 (184.108.40.20651) — June 22, 2023
This free update adds several new features and enhancements as well as support for new cameras and lens profiles. It also includes bug fixes. It is recommended for all users.
- RAW Processing Improvements — The raw processing engine has been upgraded with new internal algorithms to create more natural shadows and fewer edge artifacts.
- Improved Refine Mask brush — The Refine Mask brush improves mask edge quality in challenging areas like hair and tree branches. We have improved the algorithm and added new methods for better results.
- Encircle Option with Refine Mask — Now, you can use the Refine Mask brush to simply draw around the borders of an object or region to add or subtract from a mask or even create a new mask. It’s perfect for selecting flowers, apparel, and more. You can use it along with the Super Select AI tool to narrow down and improve an AI selection.
- Additional Mask AI Options — We have made two new options for Mask AI to make it easier to make masks of the foreground and background in photos of people and animals.
- Updated Curves — You’ve asked for it; we listened. The Curves filter in Effects (and the Tone Enhancer) has an improved curves control. You can use the new dropper to set a point on the curve in the photo and drag it up and down to adjust the brightness. You can now remove points, nudge points with the arrow keys via the text fields, and view a helpful histogram and improved grid in the background.
