Top new features of Photoshop CS5 and Photoshop CS5 Extended
Intelligent selection technology
Photoshop CS5 takes the time and frustration out of
making precise image selections and masks, providing
you a faster way to extract subjects from their
backgrounds and create realistic composites. New
intelligent selection technology offers better edge
detection and faster, more accurate masking results of
complex subjects, like hair. Automatic color
decontamination helps you eliminate background color
around the edges of a selection, resulting in more
seamless compositions when placing extracted subjects
on new backgrounds.
Edge Detection uses adaptive
selection technology to create
selections of different edge types such as along a simple solid line like
this man’s jacket, or a more complex
selection, such as his hair.
Experienced Photoshop users know that the best
selections are created by constantly adapting the selection
technique for differences in the subject’s edges—one
method for hair and another for the edge of a building.
With Photoshop CS5, you can produce highly accurate
masks and selections faster and more simply than before
with a set of new adaptive selection-edge modification
The ability to create accurate selections is made

easier with the Edge Detection controls in the
selection approach with the subject’s changing edge
updated Refine Edge dialog box.
characteristics, and the extra view modes assist you in
previewing the quality of your selections. The Refine Radius and Erase Refinements tools
customize your masks and selections as you make them. These tools, in combination with the color
decontamination settings, help eliminate any residual background color from around the edges of
your selections.
The Edge Detection and Decontaminate Colors features help you make highly precise selections of complex subjects quickly and easily, enabling faster, more accurate
compositing of multiple images. Left: Original. Middle: After refining the selection edge in Photoshop CS5. Right: Extracted subject combined with new background.
Content‐Aware Fill
The Content-Aware feature can also be
selected as an option when using the
Spot Healing brush.
One of the most exciting new features in Photoshop CS5 is the remarkable ability to remove
an image element and magically replace it with details that match the lighting, tone, and noise
of the surrounding area so that it looks like the content never existed. Now, you can make
substantial changes to photo composition quickly and easily, as even large complex subjects can
be seamlessly erased.
Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended What’s New
Use Content-Aware Fill in conjunction
with the Fill command by making a
selection first, and then choosing the
Content-Aware option from the Use
menu in the Fill dialog box.
You can use Content-Aware Fill with
the Spot Healing Brush or as an option
of the Fill feature to replace content in
an active selection. Selecting the
Content-Aware setting with the Spot
Healing brush changes the way the tool
fills in the areas you paint. This
retouching approach is designed to
account more fully for the structure
and detail of the image elements that
surround the painted area, providing a
near-invisible result when removing
unwanted objects. Alternatively, you
can select the object to be removed,
and then replace the area with
synthesized details from the area
surrounding the selection, simply by
using the Content-Aware option in the
Fill dialog box.
Intelligently retouch your
photos removing unwanted
areas with the Spot Healing
Brush working in ContentAware Fill mode.
Magically remove unwanted detail in your photographs with Content-Aware Fill. In this example, the boat has been removed
from the photo by making a rough selection around the subject (left) and then filling the area with the Content Aware option
selected in the Fill dialog box. The result is a seamless removal of the subject.
HDR Pro ­for creativity and precision with the next generation of high dynamic
range imaging
With just a few clicks, you can go beyond the capture capabilities of your camera by combining
multiple exposures into a single high dynamic range (HDR) photo that preserves the full tonal
range of a scene with high contrast. Photoshop CS5 introduces HDR Pro for more control over the
HDR merging process and greater adjustment power over the mapping of tones and the styling of
HDR output, resulting in images that range from photorealistic to highly surreal.
HDR Pro offers extended controls, an enhanced dialog box, and improved image processing. New
algorithms enable more accurate alignment of source files and automatically deghost any problem
areas that occur when trying to merge source photos where subjects have moved during capture.
You can even select a source file to be used as the sole reference for any ghosted areas or allow the
feature to do this automatically for you.
The new deghosting system
automatically gives priority to the
content of one source image over the
others in problem areas. Or, you can
override the auto feature and manually
select the base image to use.
Top: Without deghosting.
Bottom: With deghosting.
New tone-mapping tools and adjustment controls give you the power to implement your own HDR
vision, producing photos that range in style from fully textured images of high-contrast scenes to
wildly hyper-realistic creations. Save your favorite styles as presets and apply them to multiple
groups of source files to provide a common look and feel to your HDR photos. And for times when
you don’t have multiple source files, create the look of an HDR-processed image from a single
photo with the new HDR Toning feature that allows you to mimic the tone-mapping results
traditionally achieved in high dynamic range photos.

With new tone-mapping and alignment
technologies, sophisticated controls, and an
updated dialog box, HDR Pro helps you to produce
a variety of creative outcomes from a single set of
source files.
Together with the existing Photomerge
feature (which allows for image
stitching), the exposure-merging
capabilities of HDR Pro can add up to
high-bit-depth, 360-degree panoramas
ideal for composite photography, video,
and beyond.
The Auto Stack Panorama/HDR files option in Adobe Bridge CS5 and the new panelized Mini
Bridge groups source files together into stacks for quicker creation of HDR images in Photoshop
CS5. You can even start the creation of an HDR file by choosing Tools > Merge To HDR from the
Mini Bridge panel inside Photoshop.
State-of-the-art raw-image processing
The Adobe Camera Raw 6 plug-in, which ships with Photoshop CS5, now supports more than 275
camera models as it continues to provide you with the industry-leading conversion of raw files. In
addition, the utility provides advanced, nondestructive image editing and enhancement for raw
files, as well as for other standard formats, including JPEG and TIFF. Now you can remove noise,
achieve better quality sharpening, and creatively apply new styles of vignettes and film-like grain.
Recreate the look of your favorite film with the new Grain feature. Left: Original photo. Right: After grain has been applied.
Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended What’s New
You can now shoot at higher ISO settings with confidence, because the updated controls in the
Adobe Camera Raw 6 plug-in remove the noise common in such high-ISO images (as well as in
photos captured with long exposures and pictures from consumer cameras) while still preserving
excellent color and detail.
New controls for adding grain and additional post-crop vignetting settings join many creative
options already available in this utility, such as the Adjustment Brush and the Graduated Filter. For
the first time, you can add grain-like texture to photos as part of your nondestructive editing
workflow. Adjust amount, size, and roughness of grain to easily give composites a more natural,
seamless appearance by matching levels of grain across all source images—or simply use the
feature to make a digital photo look more organic or film-like.
The updated noise removal controls
in the Adobe Camera Raw 6 plug-in
use new algorithms to eliminate the
appearance of noise in your photos.
Top: Original photo. Bottom: After
noise removal.
The Adobe Camera Raw 6 plug-in includes new features for better sharpening, adding grain, removing noise, and producing
creative vignette effects.
Updated post-crop vignetting options offer more creative control over the corner darkening and
lightening process, and your favorite vignette effects can be saved as presets for quick application
across multiple files.
Upgraded sharpening options produce clearer photos with fewer artifacts while providing better
control over key details, especially when working with high-resolution pictures produced by
multi-megapixel cameras.
Extraordinary painting effects
With a new Mixer Brush, a Bristle Tips feature, and a new mechanism for blending colors,
Photoshop CS5 redefines the way you paint. You can take advantage of more natural and realistic
painting effects, making it easy to take your imagery and designs in new artistic directions.
The blending abilities of the Mixer
Brush, combined with variations
in texture provided by Bristle Tips,
provide better creative painting
control. The Bristle Tip Preview (see
insets above) displays a live view of
the brush tip as you paint.
The Mixer Brush lets you define multiple colors on a single tip, and then mix and blend them with
the underlying hues on your canvas, achieving creative results that rival traditional painting media.
When starting with a photo original, you can use a dry, empty brush to blend the existing colors
while at the same time adding a painterly effect to the image. Mixer Brush settings provide
extensive control over the wetness of the canvas colors, the load rate that determines amount of
paint loaded on the brush, the mixing rate between brush and canvas colors, and whether the
brush is refilled, cleaned, or both after each painting stroke.
Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended What’s New
The new Mixer Brush helps make it
easy to take a sketch and turn it into
a painting.
In conjunction with these new mixing features, Photoshop CS5 incorporates unprecedented
control over stroke characteristics of its painting tools with Bristle Tips. Bristle Qualities define key
bristle properties such as shape, length, stiffness, thickness, angle, and spacing, which affect how
the color is laid on the image as you paint.
The Bristle Brush Preview feature provides a visual representation of these changes, and you can
save your tip configurations for future use, allowing you to build a customized collection of Bristle
Tips to experiment with when using Photoshop brush tools.
Puppet Warp
Puppet Warpl’s Mode setting adjusts
the way that the image is transformed. Choose Distort for creative
distortions, and Rigid when you
want to maintain pixel fidelity of the
targeted pin.
Puppet Warp gives you more freedom when pushing and pulling elements within an image. The
feature lets you recompose an image to make it more appealing, or to fit a specific layout, by
allowing the precise repositioning of any element within a Photoshop document, or selection, by
simply clicking and dragging. After you reposition an object, Photoshop adjusts the rest of the
image to account for the shifted pixels.
After choosing Edit > Puppet Warp, click on your image to drop pins establishing anchor points
where you want image parts not to move, and handles that you can use for warping. Then drag any
of the pins to reposition the picture elements. Use Puppet Warp to swing a raised arm to a person’s
side, warp and stretch text to create new effects, or reposition intrusive objects in a photo to create
a more pleasing composition.
The Pin Depth settings in Puppet
Warp’s options bar give you the
ability to define a stacking order of
pins that overlap (Z-depth). The Pin
Depth settings were used in the Rose
composition (right) to layer the stems
of the flowers.
You can use Puppet Warp to
interactively reposition,
reshape, and transform key
objects in your photos. In this
example, rose photos, like the
one above, were twisted and
layered to form a wreath and
the letters in the center of the
composition (left).
Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended What’s New
Automated lens correction
The Lens Correction features in Photoshop CS5 create better quality captures by removing or
correcting the three most common lens-based errors: geometric distortion, chromatic aberration,
and vignetting. This means you can use a wider range of lenses with the confidence of producing
images of the highest quality. With the aid of the Adobe Lens Profile Creator (available separately
as a free download from you can produce custom profiles characterizing the
optical aberrations of your camera lenses. When installed and selected in the Lens Correction filter
in Photoshop CS5, the profile automatically removes or corrects the three types of distortion.
The updated Lens Correction filter also contains both automatic and
custom correction features.
The Lens Correction feature located in the Photoshop CS5 Lens Correction filter provides
camera- and lens-specific correction for three of the most common lens-related aberrations.
The Lens Correction filter lets you compare before (left) and after (right) images to evaluate
the filter’s effect before you apply it.
The Lens Correction filter in Photoshop CS5 is redesigned to include manual adjustment controls
under the Custom tab, and settings for locating and applying custom Lens Correction Profiles (LCP
files) under a new Auto Correction tab. Installed profiles that match your camera and lens
combination are used to apply precise distortion corrections to your photos. Suitable profiles can
be located easily based on the EXIF data automatically recorded with the image, and if a suitable
profile is not present in the Lens Correction filter, then with a single click within the dialog box, you
can search online for the correct profile to meet your needs.
Individual error types can be selected in the filter’s settings, as can options for handling any
transparent areas that surround the corrected image.
Adobe Lens Profile Creator
To coincide with these new lens-correction options in Photoshop
CS5, Adobe offers the Adobe Lens Profile Creator, a utility you
can use to characterize the optical aberrations of your camera
lenses and produce custom Lens Correction Profiles or LCP files.
This utility is available as a free download from
To create a new profile, simply take one or more sets of
photographs of the Adobe Camera Calibration Chart, using the
camera and lens you wish to characterize. Load the source files
into Adobe Lens Profile Creator, which then creates a lens profile
automatically. After you add some basic information about the
camera, the lens, and the calibration chart, the profile is saved,
ready for use with the Lens Correction filter. Any profiles you
create, or download from the web, are available for use in
Photoshop CS5.
Create custom Lens Correction Profiles of your own lens and camera equipment
by using the Adobe Lens Profile Creator (available separately as a free download

Repoussé is an ancient metalworking technique for embossing artwork on the surface of metals
such as gold, silver, copper, tin, and bronze. Photoshop Extended offers a powerful new feature,
inspired by this traditional technique, for creating eye-catching 3D artwork.
Use Adobe Repoussé to easily convert 2D artwork into
3D objects and then create depth by altering the
extrusion properties of the 3D model. Easily extrude
text to create logos and 3D artwork for use in websites,
video frames, or layouts.
Starting with a text layer, a path, a selection, or a layer
mask, you can convert the content to 3D with the Create
New 3D Object section of the 3D panel. After the
conversion is complete, you can alter the look of
your 3D model by manipulating its key extrusion
properties­—depth, scale, bend, shear, inflate, or twist—
in the Repoussé dialog box.
In addition to manipulating these properties, you can
inflate the front or back of the extrusion and/or apply a
custom bevel. Sections of objects (internal subpaths)
can also be inflated by creating a selection first and
then adjusting the Internal Constraints settings in the
Repoussé dialog box. The 3D Axis widget allows on
canvas rotation of the of the model.
Use the extrusion settings and controls in the
Repoussé dialog box to quickly style your 3D model.
*Adobe Mini Bridge is available in
Photoshop CS5, Photoshop CS5
Extended, and InDesign CS5.
Once your extrusion is created, you can adjust a variety of its characteristics. In this example, the Scale (left), Inflate And Bevel
(middle), and Bend And Depth (right) settings have been altered to change the design.
Enhanced 3D realism and rich materials (Photoshop CS5 Extended only)
Bring your 3D creations to life with the materials that ship with Photoshop CS5 Extended. You can
select materials from the library of included presets, download additional materials by choosing
3D > Browse 3D Content, create your own, or even edit existing materials to customize them for
your needs (in the materials section of the 3D panel). Test a variety of looks for your 3D models
and extruded designs by adding different materials or textures to their surfaces. Materials that
feature reflection or refraction properties can be rendered with the new Adobe Ray Tracer engine.
The Repoussé dialog box, and the Materials section of the 3D panel, both contain options for
applying a single material to all surfaces—as well as choosing different treatments­—for individual
sections and surfaces of your models.
Easily create unique new 3D objects
with the settings in the Create New 3D
Object section of the 3D panel.
Changing the look of your 3D models can be achieved in just a few clicks, thanks to a vast library of materials to select from
and an improved method of applying them. Left: Repoussé Model without materials. Right: Model with material applied.
Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended What’s New
Use the 3D Material Drop tool and the Material Load tool to
easily load a material and drop it into different meshes, allowing
you to sample and apply materials interactively. New overlay
controls provide instant feedback about where specific materials
and meshes are located in your model, and the updated 3D axis
widget now works with lights and cameras as well as 3D objects.
With the Shadow Catcher feature, you can now easily generate a
shadow on the ground plane of a scene, and then adjust how the
shadow interacts with image content of other layers by altering
its opacity and its softness. To further enhance realism, you can
use an HDR image to light your scene, or re-create traditional
depth-of-field effects in your rendered scene by adjusting the
zone of sharpness with the new Distance and Blur controls.
Control the selection of materials for
each of the surfaces of your Repoussé
design with settings in the feature’s
dedicated dialog box.

Streamlined creative reviews through integration with Adobe CS Review
Collaborate with colleagues and seek
client comment quickly and easily
with Adobe CS Review, a new CS
Live online service* designed to
simplify and accelerate the design
review process.
With CS Review, you can avoid the
hassles of large email attachments,
logon problems with FTP servers, and
time-consuming next-day air
deliveries usually associated with
client reviews by instead initiating a
secure, shared review. Comments are
displayed in near-real time and in
context, providing convenient
feedback on your images and designs.
You can access the CS Review service
from within Photoshop CS5.
Collaborate online with co-workers and
seek client feedback and approval with
secure, in context commenting
provided by CS Review.
Faster performance with
cross-platform native 64-bit
Tight deadlines and large file sizes make performance a high priority for many Photoshop users.
Photoshop CS5 and Photoshop CS5 Extended deliver cross-platform 64-bit support, allowing you
to perform day-to-day imaging tasks up to 10 times faster. Video and photo professionals,
especially, benefit from the extra performance, as gains are even greater if you regularly work with
very large files, where processing can be up to ten times faster when you take advantage of higher
addressable RAM amounts†—limited only by what your hardware accommodates.
* CS Live online services are complimentary for a limited time. See the last page for details and limitations related to all Adobe online services. † Requires a 64-bit-capable computer with a 64-bit version of Mac OS, Microsoft Windows 7, or Windows Vista®. Actual performance
increase will vary depending on the drivers you have installed, the feature you’re using, and other factors.
Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended What’s New
To help you tweak the performance of your setup, Photoshop CS5 lets you adjust history, tile, and
cache controls in combination.
Greater access to key resources via flexible custom panels
Photoshop CS5 offers easy ways to integrate and extend your workspace with customized panels.
With the aid of the Configurator 2.0 panel utility (available separately as a download from labs. you can produce your own panels, bringing together your most used tools and menu
selections and incorporating your
favorite web feeds or video
Stay connected to the greater
Photoshop community and all
facets of your digital life directly
from within Photoshop CS5 by
using panels you create or those
produced and distributed by other
users. You can access anything that
lives on the web—favorite blogs,
video content, even your email—
with these integrated panels. You
can even expand content beyond a
panel’s standard viewing area
when you need a magnified view.
Configurator 2.0 can be used to build your own Custom panels containing
Photoshop tools, menus, scripts and actions. You can also create panels
that access websites.
Easier interface
management with Live
Workspaces and
Workspace Switcher
Creating dedicated, taskspecific workspaces that
mimic your individual
workflow increases
productivity and efficiency by
hiding the features you don’t
use and exposing the ones
you do. New Live Workspaces
auto-save any changes you
make to a task-specific
workspace, so that if you
switch to a different
workspace and then back
again during an editing
session, your panels remain
exactly where you left them.
The number of entries
displayed in the collapsible
Workspace Switcher can be
altered, and the position of
each workspace can be
rearranged. This provides
quicker navigation between
frequently used setups.
Panel locations, keyboard shortcuts, and custom menus can be saved with each
new workspace entry.
The Workspace Switcher enables you
to quickly change between workspaces that have been customized for
different tasks.
Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended What’s New
Superior black-and-white conversion
Photoshop CS5 continues to support the tradition of producing finely crafted monochrome photos
with the inclusion of new ways to explore an endless variety of black-and-white looks. You can use
the integrated Lab Black & White Technique action, located in the Default Actions group of the
Actions panel, for an easy and interactive way to convert color images. Create gorgeous HDR
black-and-whites with greater ease and speed by taking advantage of the new and updated
features in HDR Pro. Take your monochrome creations in new directions with conversion presets in
the Black & White panel.
New presets in the Black & White panel
quickly convert your photos to set
monochrome styles.
The Lab - Black & White Technique action both converts and tints color
photos to produce sophisticated monochrome images.

If you are still using Photoshop CS3, upgrading to Photoshop CS5 also gives you the chance to
catch up on all the great features added in Photoshop CS4, including:
