Enjoy dramatically enhanced color correction with reengineered Dodge, Burn, and Sponge tools that now intelligently preserve color and tone details. Make precise adjustments with Brightness/Contrast and Curves controls, the histogram, color channel lines, and a clipping preview.
Improved Count tool
Easily and accurately tally objects or features in scientific images with the Count tool, which eliminates the need to perform manual calculations or rely on visual assessments of changes from image to image. Save even more time by performing multiple counts in a single image. Use separate colors for each count and save your counts in the file.
Quantitative data extraction
Easily calibrate or set the scale of an image, including setting measurements to the scale information in the header of DICOM files. Use selection tools to define and calculate distance, perimeter, area, and many other measurements. Record data points in a Measurement Log and then export the data, including histogram data, to a spreadsheet for further quantitative analysis.
Easily add scale markers to any image or series of images for presentations or publication.
Automatically track all editing steps within your files with the Edit History log. Export steps to a text file or save them as part of image metadata for easier documentation of your work, file audits, and more.
Pass image data directly between Photoshop Extended and MATLAB with the ability to call Photoshop Extended directly from the MATLAB command line. Visualize results of MATLAB algorithms in the software, and combine MATLAB processing with Photoshop Extended image editing to render, test, and refine algorithms for image processing, analysis, and more.
So as you can see from this brief tour, there's a lot to the upgrade ... and this is just the new stuff in Photoshop. I simply can't wait to get my copy.
