Adobe’s May Photoshop update adds new save feature, improves Neural Filters and more

Adobe has released an update to Photoshop on desktop, bringing its popular photo editing software up to version 22.4. The May 2021 release of Photoshop desktop fixes numerous known issues, adds new features and improved Neural Filters. Plus, as we mentioned last week, native Photoshop support for 64-bit Windows 10 ARM devices is now available.

Considering performance fixes, Adobe has addressed many bugs, including eliminating various crashes, user interface issues, performance problems, and more. For a full breakdown of the specific issues Adobe has corrected in the latest Photoshop desktop release, click here.

In the latest release of Photoshop, Adobe has added a ‘Save a Copy’ feature, allowing the user to export and share a copy of your work in a desired file format without overwriting your existing work.

The latest version of Photoshop adds the ability to save a copy of your work using the new ‘Save a Copy‘ option in the File dropdown menu. The ‘Save a Copy’ option automatically creates a copy of your work and lets you export and share in a chosen file format. This doesn’t overwrite the original file, thereby protecting your data. Using this new option, only supported file types that maintain your current work are supported in the ‘Save As’ command. If the file type you want to save isn’t an option, you can use ‘Save a Copy’ to create another version in your desired file type.

Adobe continues to work hard on its AI-powered Neural Filters in Photoshop. The new Photoshop update adds different ways to interact with Neural Filters. Inside the Neural Filters panel, all Neural Filters, whether they’re complete or in beta, will appear in one place now. To do this, click Filter > Neural Filters > All Filters. Users can also cast their votes for Neural Filters they want to see implemented in future versions of Photoshop. There are some Neural Filters that Adobe is already working on that aren’t quite ready for showtime. You can see those in ‘Wait List’ in the Neural Filters panel. To learn more about Neural Filters, visit Adobe. To see the full list of Neural Filters, see here.

A new tab in the Neural Filters menu, ‘All Filters,’ lets you see every Neural Filter currently available, including those in Beta. Users can also see what Adobe is working on and make their voice heard about which Neural Filters they want next.

To return to last week’s Windows ARM news, Photoshop now runs natively on 64-bit Windows 10 ARM devices. Your system must be a Windows 10 ARM device running Windows 10 64-bit v19041.488.0, have at least 8GB of RAM – although 16GB is recommended – and have a graphics card with at least 4GB of VRAM.
