Adobe has announced an update to Photoshop CC which includes new Adobe Generator technology, enhancements to Color Range options, Isolation mode, and path selection, as well as native PSDX support (read-only) and 32-bit image support for many more filters. Adobe Generator allows new workflows, especially for web designers, screen designers, and anyone who needs to extract image assets out of a Photoshop document.

Generator allows you to create image assets in real time as you work, eliminating the tedious steps of copying, slicing and exporting each layer manually, and saving you hours of time. Simply add a file extension to the name of your layer or layer group, and Photoshop will automatically create a JPG, PNG or GIF from the contents of that layer. If you make a change to that layer, the file is immediately updated. This means that you now have a folder of images that are always up-to-date with your Photoshop design.

If you need larger dimension images for Retina displays, you can also quickly create those by adding a scaling factor.

Adobe Edge Reflow CC Connectivity
Generator also enables a real-time connection between Photoshop and Edge Reflow, the responsive web design application available as part of Creative Cloud. This connection allows you to get assets from your Photoshop document into Edge Reflow with just one click, so you can get started on your responsive design right away.

Open Source, Interoperable Technology
Generator is a platform that can enable so much more, which is why we are excited to release the Generator technology platform and the image assets generation feature as open source projects. If you know JavaScript, it’s easy to modify the existing plug-ins or write your own. Check out this video from the The Engine Co., who used Generator to write a plug-in for their Loom gaming engine that allows game designers to change the UI of a game in Photoshop while the game is being played.

You can install the update by choosing Help then Updates from the Photoshop application.
