Design Amazing Images
Keep pushing creative boundaries with world-class 2D and 3D design. Use powerful new selection, painting, and warping capabilities to create standout images.
Make Your Web Pages Pop
Get just the right look for each client's site. Easily select intricate image elements for placing in layout. Create 3D artwork for logos and buttons.
Enhance 3D for Video
Create and enhance 3D and motion-based content and prepare still images and text for all your projects. Work fast with cross-platform 64-bit support, and create stunning HDR images for video backdrops.
Create Rich Interactive Experiences

3D editing 3D extrusions with Adobe Repoussé
Create stunning 3D logos and artwork from any text layer, selection, path, or layer mask with Adobe® Repoussé technology. Then twist, rotate, extrude, bevel, and inflate these designs to get the look you want.
Add depth to pixel layers, text, 2D shapes, and DICOM frames with volume rendering.
3D and 2D image compositing
Combine 3D layers into a single scene, or incorporate 3D content into 2D composites. Support for popular 3D formats lets you import and export Collada, OBJ, U3D, and KMZ models, as well as import 3DS models.
Navigating and moving 3D objects
Use the new 3D axis to position objects, cameras, lights, and meshes. Use bounding overlays to easily identify which material or mesh is targeted, and toggle these on or off along with the ground plane and lights.
Create 3D animations by mapping object movement, camera position, render settings, and cross sections to keyframes in your timeline. Take this further by using video layers to animate your textures, and include image-based lights.
Precisely reposition or warp any image element. Swing a raised arm to a person's side in a photo, stretch text to create new effects, and more.
Automatically recompose an image as you resize it, smartly preserving vital areas as the image adapts to the new dimensions. Get the perfect image in one step without time-intensive cropping and retouching.
Retouch images easily and precisely by previewing source pixels within the cursor of the Clone Stamp and the Healing Brush. Set multiple source points, scale, and rotate in the Clone Source palette.
Industry-leading color correction
Use Dodge, Burn, and Sponge tools that intelligently preserve color and tone details, Curves controls that let you make automatic adjustments with included presets or those you create, a histogram, color channel lines, and more.
Creative tools and content New shapes, swatches, and gradients
Give your images and designs fresh looks using a variety of custom shapes, color swatches, styles, gradients, and 3D meshes.
New Actions and brushes
Quickly try out different editing effects and techniques using new Actions for black-and-white conversion and surreal Stars effects, and paint with a new set of brushes.
One-click color adjustments
Make sophisticated color adjustments instantly with one-click presets in Curves and the Channel Mixer.
Multi-Touch support on Mac laptops
Pinch, swipe, and rotate images using the Multi-Touch trackpad on newer MacBook Pro and MacBook Air laptops (requires Mac OS X v10.5 or later). And now, easily turn off Multi-Touch support if you wish.
Adobe PDF file support
Precisely control the size of PDF pages opened in Photoshop; add security controls and metadata, such as copyright and exposure details, to images within PDF presentations; and create a rich image display in PDF presentations and documents.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom integration
Enjoy tight integration with Photoshop Lightroom (sold separately), easily moving files from Lightroom to Photoshop CS5 to create HDR images, panoramas, and multilayered Photoshop documents. Roundtrip your files back to Lightroom.
Image file format support
Import and export hundreds of image file formats, including PSD, AI, PDF, NEF, CRW, TIFF, BMP, Cineon, JPEG, JPEG2000, FXG, OpenEXR, PNG, and Targa.
Easy reversing of clone source images
Clone any image element, and then click once to reverse the cloned element so it faces in the opposite direction.
Shadow/Highlight default change
Get more natural-looking results from the Shadow/Highlight command's default setting, which now decreases shadows by 35% instead of 50%.
