Well the great updates to Adobe Creative Cloud 2014 are here and it really has some neat new stuff – BUT, what the fuck they dropped “Oil Paint Filter”.
What a bummer – for the last few weeks I have been touting the Jack Davis Paint technique – and It’s based on the oil paint filter – Thank God the new Photoshop (2014) doesn’t remove or overwrite the old CC version so you still filter in the older one. But, I have to admit that the new 2014 is really a step up, great new features and improved speed, new filters and mobile ready. – just have to use the old version for the initial painting rendering and then switch to the 2014 version for final output – what the hell – It works.
So if you’re a photographer or want to be Digital Painter – join the cloud with the Photographer’s $9.99 bundle and get the new 2014 and the older CC Photoshop versions loaded – you can get both. That way you have the best of both worlds.
