Adobe has released the newest version of Photoshop CC (version 21.0) that comes with exciting new features for artists, designers, and photographers. The new Object Selection Tool lets you make a quick selection of any item in an image by simply dragging a rectangle or a lasso around it. The Select Subject Tool is faster, and makes more accurate selections than the previous version.
Another exciting new feature is the Remove Background feature that lets you remove the background of an image at the click of a button, leaving just the subject. Other useful new features include Zoom to Layer Content, converting text to vector, converting Smart Object back to Layers, and using the tilde key (~) to erase and rotate brush tips.
