If you're curious what might be in store for a future version of Photoshop, or other Adobe products, here are three resources you should check out:
1. My friend Rick sent me this link to a cool video on the Photoshop Facebook page. The video shows a preview of "PatchMatch: Content-Aware spot Healing and Fill tools" or "intelligent hole filling". You've got to see this in action...it's pretty cool.
2. More info about PatchMatch, and all kinds of other technologies, are discussed and demonstrated at Adobe's Advanced Technology Labs.
3. Future versions of actual products (as opposed to "technologies" are presented, and sometimes available for download, at Adobe Labs.
