Part of Adobe’s big Photoshop update today was the announcement of a new “plugin experience,” including a bespoke Plugin Marketplace and special Plugin Launchpad. And one of the first photography companies to take advantage of the new experience is editing console maker Loupedeck.
In an announcement that went live exactly 5 minutes after the Photoshop news, Loupedeck unveiled a collaboration with Adobe on a new plugin for Photoshop. The plugin is one of the very first to be built on Adobe’s Unified Extensibility Platform (UXP), which the company integrated into Photoshop this morning. As such, it’s already available to download and install through the Plugin Marketplace in the Creative Cloud Desktop app.
- Improved overall performance in both Photoshop and Camera Raw
- The ability to add adjustment layers and control their corresponding parameters with dials and/or wheel
- The ability to reset functionality for individual adjustment parameters
- Intuitive control over Font settings
- The ability to quickly scroll through and view history panel with dial and/or wheel
- Increased control over Curves, including the ability to adjust color channel curves separately and control curve points
- Smoother control over Brush settings and Zoom In/Out functions
- Streamline workflow by combining Photoshop actions into macros within the Loupedeck software
- Full control over Layer Properties
- Ability to control Quick Actions (e.g. select object, remove background) introduced in Photoshop in 2020
“We collaborated with Adobe to develop the new plugin and to ensure Loupedeck users could easily integrate and maximize their creative potential with the new features offered by Photoshop the moment they are available,” explains Mikko Kesti, Founder and CEO of Loupedeck.
“Our new plugin for Photoshop incorporates the software’s new features into both the Loupedeck CT and just-launched Loupedeck Live, giving creators the power to further customize their Photoshop experience.”
