Secret Features Available in Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop comes with such a diverse array of tools and features that it can be overwhelming. There are so many features that even experienced users may not be familiar with all of them.

This is why we have compiled a list of five little known – yet useful – features for you. Features which can save you a lot of time and effort and provide excellent results.

1. Puppet Warp

This option allows a user to reshape or distort an element in the image by creating a “skeleton” for it. This skeleton can then be moved around or transformed so as to give a new pose to the chosen element. For example, say you want to get a person’s arms to move. To do this, first copy the hands onto a new layer and then cut around the body so that the rest of the layer is empty.

Once you have done this then select Edit followed by Puppet Warp. Photoshop will then create a mesh. Following this click to “pin” the parts in place. Once pinned, you can move the “pins” around as much as you want changing the pose. To learn more about this option refer to Photoshop’s documentation.

2. Content-Aware Scale

This feature allows a user to change the shape of an image. The exciting part is that the Content Aware feature lets you do this without actually distorting the content of the image or cropping important features.

To begin, select the image/area that you need to scale and then select Edit followed by Content-Aware Scale. Following this, move around the handles to recompose the image. To get more information on this feature refer to the documentation.

3. Layer Styles

The layered approach of Photoshop makes it extremely simple to have drop shadows, halos, etc. The interface for these features is however, not easily accessible. To access these features first place what you want to style on its own layer and then double-click on the blank space at the right of that layer’s name. This will open up the window for Layer Styles. This window has 12 effects that are non-destructive to your content.

4. Camera Raw for JPEGs

Although this feature is somewhat known, what people generally don’t know is that the Camera Raw importer is not just for raw files but it also works with JPEGs and TIFFs.

Different versions of Photoshop have this option under different menus. In some versions it falls under the Filter menu; if you don’t find it there go to File then to Open As and select Camera Raw as the image type. You can also right-click on Bridge and click on Open In Camera Raw.

This option of Camera Raw provides users with handy tools that are not available in the main interface. For a complete feature list of the Camera Raw option check out the documentation.

5. Adjust Vibrance

This is a good option compared to adjusting the saturation of an image as saturation can result in bright colors looking too garish.

Instead go to Image, then Adjustments and select Vibrance. This option lets you make color adjustments smartly and enhances areas of low saturation, but does not take brighter colors to extremes. This option is designed so that it only has a subtle effect on skin tones.
