What's new in Photoshop CC 2019
A number of small changes, and some fairly major interface changes feature in this latest update.

You can read my feature on all of this here:

Interesting. Although I am using Affinity Photo less and less and PS more and more again, I wonder if it is having an impact on Adobe. Interesting to see that, with the exception of selective content aware, every other feature listed here (I think) is already in Affinity.

Cats 'n pigeons an' stuff?

Just saying .........

Largely, yes. But I don't know (yet) of any professional designer using Affinity rather than Photoshop for commercial work.

I am sure that's probably so. Professionals have their subscriptions paid by their company or, if independent, can set them against tax and recover VAT, so the huge price gap is less significant. Also Creative Cloud features are useful to professionals in a way they are less likely to be to individuals.

In the end I suspect there are three reasons why most Affinity users go Affinity:

Much, much cheaper.
"I don't like Adobe".
"I don't like subscription software".

....... or any combination of the above.

Basically that's most likely to be private users.

I am very happy with my CS6 at present. But once it stops working I shall bite the bullet on the costs and move to CC. I like aspects of Affinity and still use it for certain things, but no way would I want to have to work in Affinity alone.

I wasn't trying to make a point, I was just intrigued by the fact that so many of PS's new features parallel those already in Affinity. Just wondered if the big boys are having to pay attention to the new boys on the block.

Seem to have a problem loading cc 2019 onto Windows 7. Bridge loads, PS not. When trying to open an image via Bridge, this is the message I get:

That's a Windows issue. Way out of my comfort zone!

Re: What's new in Photoshop CC 2019
I always love (not) seeing this kind of message in Windows. It gives you all possible assistance short of actual help.

Why is this dll file missing? Was it not there before? Did it just get lost in all the bits and bytes? Is it wandering around my motherboard lost and trying to get out like someone in Hampton Court Maze? Did someone steal it while I was asleep? Why would anyone want to steal my dll file anyway? Maybe they didnít have one of their own and this was the only way they could get one. Is there a society for orphaned dll files where they can seek comfort and solace from others of their kind? Where is it now? Has it gone away to a Greek island for a two-week holiday without telling me? What do I do after I reinstall the program and itís still missing? Could I be arrested if I donít lodge a Ďmissing dll file reportí with the police? Can I buy a new dll file on Amazon? Are they available second-hand on e Bay? How do I clean and repair an old dll file I found lying in the back of a drawer? Can you still get spares for them?

Maybe itís just depressed and sad because the summer is nearly over. Perhaps we should invite it to the HTCIP Christmas lunch to cheer it up.

... and what the heck is a D3DCOMPILER_47.dll file anyway? The vast majority of computer users are not tech geeks so why speak to them in tech geek language?

Silly rant over

I love my MAC.

Amusingly, cc 2019 eventually loaded, but is only visible in the downloads folder. Curiouser and curiouser . I take it all as a sinister plot by Adobe/Microsoft to put money into my Windows expert's pockets . Should be sorted today/tomorrow, will report back in full gory detail.

Patience is a vital attribute when dealing with hardware/software . Lesson learnt: give Adobe a month or two to sort out their #&%$ before downloading. Tip to Adobe: employ one person to check that the basics work prior to release

The Blend Mode feature is very useful because you don't have to keep accessing the drop down menu and this saves time by giving an instant preview.

I tried the Frame feature and cannot really see the value, unless I'm missing something. If I wanted to add texture to text, then I'd simply clip the texture layer to the text layer and then transform to achieve the right scale. The same would apply to an image. I had to rasterise the text to make the option live in the edit menu and this would not be necessary with clipping. Perhaps a cheeky video tutorial may help here Steve??

The content aware enhancement is useful however, you have to delete the sample area not required, which involves a fair amount of erasing and the square bracket keys don't seem to adjust the brush size. My view is that you should have the option to paint in the sample area, but this doesn't seem to exist, unless I've missed it??

I've not tried the other features yet.

Thanks Ben. I have just received my computer back from the guru, with the explanation that Microsoft is fine, the problem lies with Photoshop, apparently the actual download file (so 'dll' makes sense).

He apparently cannot uninstall PS cc2019, so I will copy 2018 on to another disc, then uninstall 2019 and reinstall 2019. But I will try your fix first.

Will report back tomorrow.

Hi Nick, there is an option in the Content Aware dialog to change the painted area to selected.

Took a while, but the conundrum is solved: Windows 7 had an update to their service pack....
