Sneak peak #2 – Background save and the GPU

Sneak Peak No.2 from our friends at Adobe.

I tend to have my Photoshop memory and performance settings adjusted to favour faster work in the interface, at the cost of slower file opening and saving, so the new feature allowing that allows background saving – the ability to start the saving process and then continue working – looks like it will come in handy.

The other area that this video looks at is filter acceleration using the graphics processing unit (GPU) on your video card. In this case the example looks at the liquify filter, which certainly benefits from this approach. The video demonstrates a significant speedup when GPU based in CS6. You can expect more filters and features to benefit from GPU acceleration in the future.
