It has! Blog posts are now live. (The press embargo is always later than the downloads going live.)

This changes a lot of things. I run Detail in the Detail panel quite high however you lose halo suppression when you go over 50. Just experimenting with setting that back to the factory default of 25. Looks pretty good.

I downloaded the new Classic version, and ran it on a portrait I took on Mother's day.
I used the texture with the brush.
I have to say - I really liked the result on older skin. Great work, Adobe.

Great. I'll have to do this with selfies. These days I scare myself when I Iook at mine.

LOL. Probably one main reason why I don't use my phone a lot as a camera, and I never take selfies. There will have to be some really great software advances in artificial intelligence for post processing for me to take a selfie.

I also learned not wear my glasses in the bathroom. I'm pretty sure there is something wrong with that mirror.

I also read on another forum Contrast (when using Auto) seems to have been corrected as well. It is not dropping down to -18 anymore and moving to the positive value. Adobe did say they were going to fix that. I've only done a few tests but that is what I'm seeing now. Gotta revise my workflow.

Fairly shortly after the new Auto was introduced I noticed that Auto underexposed Canon profiles badly. It always exposed this file to around -70. Looks like they fixed that too. Awesome

I wasn't sure how Texture would work with high ISO. Generaly I have been able to lower Sharpening and Detail in the Detail panel and reduce the amount of sharpening at export. A choir my wife signs in from last week. 10,000 ISO.
