Adobe is also saying that overall performance and speed has been improved, with Photoshop overall, but as well with the Liquefy tool specifically. We have not had a chance yet to confirm these claims on our own.
Another big performance boost that Adobe is claiming comes to the Surface Blur tool, which according to Adobe is now 10x faster with 16-bit photos. This will be a moot point for many of you since most cameras these days top out at 14-bit, but for those lucky enough to shoot with a camera that outputs 16-bit files, this will be a nice time saver when using the surface blur tool.
Full details on these Photoshop updates can be found over on the Adobe website, here.
