“Sneak peek: Future Photoshop masking technology”

In this brief demo, Photoshop PM Bryan O’Neil Hughes shows off some new selection technology that offers better edge detection and masking results in less time–even with tricky images like hair.

Hopefully this helps explain why we put the Extract filter out to pasture in CS4.

Well, maybe if you’d explained it bett—wait, I misread that. Your justification for removing a limited-but-useful filter from the latest $50,000 Photoshop upgrade is that you’re going to release a better tool in the next $50,000 upgrade, or maybe the one after that?

Fuck off, maybe?
