Adobe gives a sneak peek into 'Photoshop CS5'

Facebook video unveils new Adobe CS5 tools

Adobe has posted a video on Facebook giving a sneak peek at features that will likely make their way into the next version of Photoshop. The video shows a selection of features that are being developed by 'Photoshop Labs', including Painter-style brushes, a new warp tool and more.

The new brush tools aim to match that found within Corel's Painter application. The video shows 'wet' paints being smudged, smeared and blended. It also shows an on-screen representation of the 3D properties of a brush, showing how it has been twisted to lay down different stroke types.

A similar system After Effects' Puppet tool has been added to Photoshop, enabling artists to warp image by placing pins into areas to lock them down, then moving the areas around them. An overlaid grid shows how the image is warped.

Adobe isn't saying that these tools will definitely be in Photoshop CS5 -- or any future version of Photoshop -- as the company doesn't want to be legally tied to releasing them, but tools from "here's just a little something we're playing with" sessions like this usually work their way into the next release.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
