Please respond. I have 538 photos to cut out of the background. I was doing very well and fast until the update. Now Refine Edge destroys the edge!!
I have changed all of the settings until I am exhausted. I am now using my CS5 on an old computer and doing what I want only slower. I have compared the settings and my edge refinement is broken on the CC up date. I tried moving the marching ants away from the edge, Too far outside of the object and it got worse. I tried moving the ants well inside the borders of the object and it was slightly better.
Please let us know if your'e OK with us contacting you via email to get to the bottom of this. Thanks!
I have been saving for a SSD and a new install of windows 7 pro 64bit.
If I do go back to Win 7, will I have problems with Photoshop CC
The only thing in common is a rather ancient Wacom Intuos2 tablet, which isn't supposed to work on either of these machines, as there is no compatible driver, but somehow I was able to save my settings. Could that have caused the problem due to some conflict with the update?
Entirely different issue, but may have some bearing... things get "stuck" to my pen in the layers pallet and also in the properties window. What I mean by that is that a layer that I have just renamed, for example, often follows the movement of my pen and that causes a change in the layer order. Similarly, when moving a point on a curve, the pen doesn't drop the point, but the point follows the pen outside of the properties window. I hope that makes sense and might be useful.
I just reinstalled 2015 (Creative Cloud>Apps>Previous Versions>Find Additional Apps>Previous Versions>View Previous Versions>Photoshop>Install>and then choose version from dropdown). Unfortunately, that was not the last version of 2015 (its the woman's face, rather than the little girl climbing stairs), but the refine edge tool works great.
I love the new content-aware crop, and the face-aware liquify tools, so will probably need to run both 2015 and 2015.5 on my computer. Someone should get fired over this.
same here the new refine mask function is totally crappy...... i have a 1080 GTX.
i mean what card would i need to get GOOD masking with this new tool?
a 4000 euro nvidia quadro card?
just admit that it is broken and fix it!!
just try the old tool and hair.
the old tool keeps the "hard edges" of cloth etc.
then try the new tool... it will mask inside the cloth area and destroy the hard edges.
i shoot a lot before a neutral grey background and mask people out, to replace the background. the new tool is a nightmare. the new refine edge brush is useless.
when i have a red cloth and blond hair masked with quickmask etc. and want to remove grey areas behind the hair i don ́t want the refine edge tool to make parts of the red cloth transparent!!
i want it to remove the GREY. and there is plenty of contrast and color difference for the masking tool to work. but it does not work correct.
no way to make this work good with the new tool. but the old refine edge brush works fine.
