1. Camera Shake Reduction

Save shots you thought were lost due to camera motion. Whether your blur was caused by slow shutter speed or a long focal length, Camera Shake Reduction analyzes its trajectory and helps restore sharpness.

2. Camera RAW Retouching Improvements

Apply Camera Raw edits as a filter to any layer or file inside Photoshop. With new Adobe Camera Raw 8, you get more precise ways to heal images. Now you can use the Spot Removal tool as a brush and paint over the unwanted areas of you photos. You can also find the spots caused by dust in your lens or sensor much easier by using the new Visualize Spots feature.

3. Camera RAW Radial Filter

With new Adobe Camera Raw 8, you can create Radial Filters on your photos. These can be used for several effects and just like all Camera RAW adjustments they are completely non-destructive.

5. Preserve Details Resampling Method

Enlarge a low-res image so it looks great in print, or start with a larger image and blow it up to poster or billboard size. New upsampling preserves detail and sharpness without introducing noise.

6. Smart Sharpen Improvements

Rich textures, crisp edges, and distinct details. Smart Sharpen is the most advanced sharpening technology available today. It analyzes images to maximize clarity and minimize noise and halos, and it lets you fine-tune for high-quality, natural-looking results.

7. Properties Panel Improvements for Shapes

One of your most requested features is here. Now you can resize shapes, edit them, and re-edit them — before or after they're created. Even edit individual corner radiuses in rounded rectangles. Get more done in fewer clicks by selecting multiple paths, shapes, and vector masks at once. Even in multilayered documents with lots of paths, you can easily target the path you want right on canvas using a new filter mode.

8. Isolate Layers

A fantastic new way to simplify your work is to Isolate layers in a complicated layer structure. This feature allows to concentrate on a specific layer or set of layers and don't get confused by all the other layers.
