What is your fave new feature?

Recommended Posts

Working with the new PDN this evening it struck me how often I use a particular new feature . So I was wondering , what might be the most popular one used here? We have had plenty threads commenting on the not so popular ones so I thought a bit of positivity was in order. I think Rick would find it interesting to see what is the favourite as well.

 

So - mine is quite a simple one really. It`s the new icons in the top right hand corner enabling you to hide/unhide the windows at a single click. Quite a lot I find myself turning off all the windows to see how the image looks without anything getting in the way. I never used to do this in the old version because it meant going into a menu or trying to remember the keyboard shortcuts (which I never could), so this is a definite improvement which I would miss if it returned to the older system. Great idea and really useful. ;)

 

Now - who`s next?

1. The soft brushes with the hardness setting and blending options. I love them.

 

2. Also, The live 'tolerance' adjustment for the paint bucket and magic wand tool.

I absolutely love the new dynamic tolerance adjustment that makes it so you don't have to keep selecting over and over, it's soooo useful.

I also like the new Shapes tool.

I'm not too fond of the new way that shift+ellipse works though...

Able to drag layers.

 

The Plugin sliders with a notch showing it's default value.

 

The icons in the top right - easy to hide windows.

 

Dancin' ants.

 

The new shapes tool.

Let me count the ways:

 

1.  Much faster than v5.

2.  Child windows – easier to switch on/off.

3.  Paintbrush & rubber eraser hardness scale ;) .

4.  Ability to move layers.

5.  Live tolerance in Paint Bucket and Magic Wand Tools.

6.  Finish option.

7.  New Shape Tools.

8.  Rotate - by grabbing a corner.

9.  Reverse transparency in Gradient Tool.

10.Move Selected Pixels now not leaving behind a ‘ghost line’.

 

All in all ………………

Message to self:  "Thou shalt not speed read". 

 

Yes, now I see you said 'One'. 

 

But that seems a shame, as there are so many more.  Perhaps pointing them out is good for newbies (and oldies like me) who may not know or have noticed B) .

Absolutely Pyro. Selections are so much better now. Also I like the moveable layers, all the extra shapes for the Shapes tool, and after getting used to it - the Finish option.

Antialiased selections by far

Funny. I turned that new feature off. I prefer to control the edges myself by using a feather plugin.

Being able to adjust Shapes without having to redraw them!

Multilayer sampling for the Color Picker tool is also a good one. Especially when you have a million and one layers, and are too lazy to find the correct one. :P
