    Those two features, (shake reduction and ACR as a filter, have been
    included since at least last November. Didn't you use the program, or
    did you just have it and not use it.

    If they wre included since November (and it's not like I'd take *your* word
    for it, Peter), then I've just missed it.

    Actually, those features were included back in June 2013 and were
    heavily promoted at "Photoshop World" in September. Matt Kloskowski did
    a pretty good PodCast (free on iTunes) on the subject on September 24
    and he first mentioned the new feature on August 6 PodCast.

    Any Photoshop user (Photoshop CC, CS6 & earlier, PSE, PS Touch/, LR,
    with a Mac, iPad, or access to iTunes or PodCasts with a Windows
    machine should consider subscribing to some of the PS & LR related
    PodCasts, they are free and very informative. To find them just search
    using iTunes on your computer, or with the PodCast app or "DownCast" on
    the iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch.
    Here are a few suggestions. Just search for the in the iTunes or
    PodCast App Stores:
    "Photoshop With Matt"
    "The Complete Picture With Julieanne Kost"
    "Photoshop User TV"
    "Photography Tips and Tricks"

    There are others, and much of what is there can be found online in
    YouTube and the Adobe support page, but you can do your own exploring.

    The features were hard to miss, if you actually used the product.

    That's an odd claim to make. Do you mean the features were visually obvious
    whenever the user started Photoshop? As in a splash screen with "NEW NEW!!!
    Don't miss!!!", or what exactly made the features *hard* to miss. If you're
    missing a leg in the morning, that's pretty hard to miss when you try to
    stand up, but if you're missing a lot of hair fro the back of your head,
    that's pretty easy to miss.

    I use Photoshop on a daily basis, by the way. Added features aren't
    announced inside the program, so if they're added, they're pretty *easy* to
    miss unless you're looking for them, or know to lock for them.

    I am confused.
    You are running PS CC on a Mac, correct?
    If so, and if you have CC properly installed on your Mac, you should be
    advised of all updates and new features in this window and via
    notifications.
    < http://helpx.adobe.com/pdf/photoshop_reference.pdf >
    Also, there have been all sorts of tutorials and online information
    discussing new features, what they can do, and how you can use them.
    ....and then there is always this.

    What "this window" are you in reference to? The Creative Cloud notifies me
    of new updates when available, but they're quite common, and I donä't have
    the habit of clikcing the "What's new?" link for every update.
    That's the reference manual for the product... You seem to suggest that one
    whould read that one every couple of days to see if there is new material
    in it?
    Which I, obviously, have missed. Or rather, that's how I found out about
    them - here in this thread.
    That's the same link as above.

    Peter's claim was that it was hard to miss these new features, yet the only
    way to know about them by using the application is to note the "Camera
    Raw..." addition in the filter menu and the "Shake reduction..." in the
    Sharpen filter menu.

    I rarely ever user the sharpen tools in PS, and I also rarely use the other
    filters next to the Camera Raw filter in the filter menu (Liquify,
    Vanishing point etc) so it's actually quite *easy* to miss these new
    features unless you knew they had been added.

    For what it's worth - PS *should* have a "What's new" splash screen when
    starting up a new version.

    Oops! I posted the same link twice. Here is what was meany to be the first URJ:
    The Adobe publicity machine has been talking about these features for
    most of 2013. They made a big point of showcasing most of those at
    Photoshop World in September.
    If you check "Help" in the menu bar the first item below the search
    window is "What's New...". Click on that and you are presented with the
    following;
    How were you advised that this latest update was available?
    I was advised in my OSX notifications that a PS CC update was
    available. I got an email advising me of the update. That also had
    links to online information letting me know exactly gad been changed
    and/or added. Then the "Creative Cloud" window had a notice which was a
    large red notice with an update button,

    Right, and this is how it looks when I click the "What's new?" link for
    PSCC for the latest update:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/r9lnofd1tg5oyvt/Screenshot 2014-01-20 09.59.43.png

    So it's quite understandable that I don't click it all the time, since most
    of the time, it's small fixes and not huge new versions. :)
    Right, but Peter claimed it was hard to miss them when using the software.
    It's quite obvious that I haven't kept up to date with Photoshop features
    since moving to CC since before you read about new features that was the
    basis of whether or not you would upgrade to the next version, the need for
    that now isn't as big, and thus - it had slipped me.
    Right - but up until this thread I had no reason to believe there was
    something new in PS, that's all. It's not like I have the habit of
    repeatedly checking that menu to find out of something new has been added
    to the software.
    Via the CC menulet, which have a What's new link in grey under the software
    name. WHen clicking it, again, this is what I see:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/r9lnofd1tg5oyvt/Screenshot 2014-01-20 09.59.43.png
    The OSX notification came from the CC menu. And for whatever reason, I
    don't get email updates from Adobe, or if I do, they drown in the hundreds
    of mails I get anyway :)

    Your comment, to which I responded:

    "That's some really neat features. I've been waiting
    for them to include the Shaky blur reduction thing, and having
    Camera Raw as a filter, nice!"

    So you missed noticing the features for which "I've been waiting for
    them to include...." even though they were in CC all the time, and you
    were using the product "on a daily basis."
    I understand. For me, EOD.

    You forgot to add a point in your post, Peter.

    I'm not even a Photoshop user, and I remember the Usual Suspects discussing
    the "RAW as a filter" feature some time ago in this very newsgroup (or r.p.d,
    which all of us read just as regularly). If you missed that, you just weren't
    paying attention.

    Yup!
    Discussed and/or mentioned in both groups. Along with the "Upright
    Filter", "Adaptive Wide Angle", and various "Content Aware" features.

    Something else Sandman seems to have missed: I posted an example of
    the effect of the anti-shake filter on 20 November 2013.

    Before:

    .... and after.

    So your original comment had no factual basis, and you just spouted. I
    guess my comment states the obvious, and reinforces my belief in your
    credibility.
