Press Release 2018-01-25 11:05 article  > Software

With Selections Improvements and Advanced Support for Windows High Density Monitors.

New features:

  • Select Subject
  • Select and Mask Improvements
  • Better SVG compatibility with Adobe XD
  • Support for Microsoft High Density Monitors and Improved Dial Support

Windows High Density Monitor Support

With this release, Photoshop on Windows 10 Creator’s Edition now offers a full range of choices for UI scale factors from 100% through 400%, in 25% increments. This means that the Photoshop user interface will look crisp and the right size no matter the density of your monitor. Photoshop will now automatically adjust itself based on your Windows settings.



Select Subject

Select Subject automatically selects the prominent subjects in the image with one click. You can then refine the selection using other selection tools.

It’s available in all the places you start selections:

  • Select > Subject
  • Select Subject button in the Quick Selection tool and Magic Wand options bar
  • Select Subject button in the Select & Mask workspace options bar while using the Quick Selection tool


Select and Mask Improvements

A decontamination slider has been added to Select and Mask that allows the user to control the amount of decontamination applied to an image. This feature was also available in Refine Edge and has now been brought to the Select and Mask workspace.

Better SVG compatibility with Adobe XD

Previously, when copying text with multiple styles and effects, only the first-used style was getting copied. Now when Photoshop users copy and paste SVG from Photoshop to XD, multiple text styles and effects are supported.

Improved Microsoft Dial support

Now you can change brush settings while you paint using the Microsoft Dial. Previously, brush settings could only be changed between brush strokes. You can assign the Microsoft Dial to control opacity and then adjust it as you paint. Assign dynamic control in the Brush Settings Panel to Dial (size, roundness, angle, scatter, texture depth, foreground and background colour, opacity, flow, wetness, and mix).
