While you could apply the changes you made to your layers without affecting them, the new storage function will make it much easier to access them. You can now store these edits and restore them easily with just one click. Previously, you had to duplicate or overwrite the original files and then apply the changes. However the Storage function will not affect the original files.
In earlier versions of Photoshop, we used to set the colors of the background layer so that the blacks and whites are kept above and below the brightness range required. This wasn’t that difficult, but it required us to know the exact color of each and every color of the image. With the new settings, you can now set a range instead of the exact color for each channel.
What attracted me further in the new version of Photoshop is the new eraser tool removed. Previously, using the eraser tool you had to select a certain area first before it could be erased. After erasing several areas, you had to always go back and fill up the erased areas. Is there a function to erase only one object? Can I erase all the objects at once instead of removing and erasing individually? Together, the answers are yes!
What you may not know is that you can now copy and paste these styles to other layers, and they can be applied using the same brushes or the same shape. Previously, you had to copy the stylistic fill settings, positions and shapes to take advantage of its features. d2c66b5586
