It is hard to believe we are almost at the end of 2021! Here's to a terriffic holiday season, whatever you celebrate. I hope everyone attended Max in October and learned something new. Since then, we had a few smaller releases where we added performance enhancements to Photoshop and fixed several customer-reported issues. On Photoshop on the iPad, we added the Smudge tool so you can blend colors with a smudgy effect that simulates traditional painting. Then you can make your work more colorful with the Sponge tool by adding (or subtracting) color with a brush stroke. After you try the new features, check out the Quick Tips, read the blog posts, and learn something new watching the latest Photoshop tutorials. In case you missed any of our previous newsletters, you can find a bunch more Photoshop stuff here: Newsletter home page.
