Better Font Previews and Typekit Integration

Photoshop CC 2014 brings a huge update to the Text tool. Firstly, you can pick your fonts quicker with the live font preview. Simply hover over a font from the options bar and your text will update. You can also do this by pressing the up or down button. Sometimes a font will have several styles – instead of pressing up or down multiple times until you get to the next font, you can hold the shift key while pressing up or down and it’ll skip the styles and go straight to the next font.

Typekit Fonts

Another feature you’ll notice is the green icon beside the font. This indicates that the font is from Typekit – a respiratory of fonts that are free to use with your Creative Cloud membership. Simply click on the Add Fonts from Typekit  button and the Typekit website will load in your browser and automatically log you in. From here, you can select the font you want to use and sync it to your computer. The font will appear in Photoshop automatically without restarting.

Syncing Fonts from Typekit

Back in the Photoshop font selection menu, you can filter the fonts list so that it only shows fonts from TypeKit.

Path and Spin Blur

With the new Path and Spin blur modes for the Blur Gallery filter, you can create realistic motion blur along a path or a circular motion blur. To access these, go to Filter > Blur Gallery > Path or Spin blur. First, we’ll show you the Path blur. This blur mode lets you create a motion blur along a path. Simply draw a path in the direction that you’d like the motion blur to move towards. You can also draw multiple paths in different areas.

The Spin blur creates a circular motion blur and it’s great for making the wheels look like they’re moving.

Focus Selections

Here’s a photo of with a blurry background and let’s say we want to make a selection of just the areas that are in focus. We can do this easily with the new Focus Area selection tool. To use this, go to Select > Focus Area.
