Here are the Feature Request I submitted. Somehow my earlier post failed:

1. Export - Quick Export to JPG: Create feature to specify default pixel dimensions for JPG export prefs. I.E. 1500 pixel limit (Vert/Horz) as in Image Processor, also ability to set default copyright line: © John Doe 2017 (in image -not only Meta). This could in effect create a shortcut to image processor, as exporting a personal standardized JPG of a specific size is a very common function. (Yes I could create an action here, but the JPG export prefs should cover this)

2. More robust layer specs in one location: Combine Layer style controls with “New Layer” window to offer Layer Style controls with: Renaming layer, layer color, and clipping options. I.E. New Layer or double Click background layer could offer all layer control options in one window.


3. May years ago, Photoshop UI offered “Turn off path”. This was a single control that was replaced with the cumbersome Escape that only works when Pen Tool is selected. Path also can be “turned off” by clicking empty space in Paths palette, but this is cumbersome when palette has many paths (requires scrolling) A single button to “Turn off Paths” is more efficient and allows for an assignable action quick key.


4. An error prompt appears when working in Quick Mask Mode if no Layer is selected. But Quick Mask should be independent of layer selection status. Allow quick mask mode edits in any state.


5. When Using Brush (and other tools) there is much wasted real estate at top of UI. Especially in “Full Screen with Menu Bar”. For instance, this would be a good place to locate thumbnails for a few favorite brushes when using that tool. Brushes Palette can get crowded -even with the new options. Many users have a small number of most frequently used brushes. Make these available at top of screen.


6. Allow selection of multiple control points with “Transform-Warp” Currently, only a single control point can be moved at once. The ability to select/move (Rotate?) individual control points would make an already powerful tool much better. ("Add Control point” would be another powerful option. This tool offers much that Puppet Warp does not do.


(I was a beta tester for Photoshop 1.0 and subsequent versions, including Alpha Testing at Adobe HQ)
