just one guy's requests for photoshop-killing features

Recommended Posts

While my demands may be esoteric, here's a few small things (at least they seem small to me)

 

•a minimum/maximum filter, sometimes called erode/dilate, to fatten or shrink selections

•as many keyboard modifiers as possible; for example in PS you can cmd-option drag on a selection with a lasso tool to clone it as a floating selection, or you can ctrl-shift click with the brush tool to bring up a menu to change blending modes of the brush or edit the brush; all this saves trips to the menu bar or the palettes

•this is more difficult I imagine, but more robust content-aware fill

•I might have missed it, but essential is the Photoshop ctrl-click popup menu with the move tool, that lets you select which layer is active even though there may be several beneath the mouse location

 

while I've only been exploring a day or two, the Assistant Manager might have promise to rival the Actions palette in Photoshop

If you are referring to Photoshop's maximum/minimum, you might want to check Maximum Blur/Minimum Blur.

 

To expand selections (expand in Photoshop), in Photo you can use Select/Grow-Shrink.
