The innovative NVIDIA GPU-accelerated AdobeĀ® Mercury Graphics Engine in Photoshop CC makes the design experience smooth and intuitive with near-real-time performance for fluid editing, compositing, and image transformation. Commonly used Photoshop CC tools improved with the GPU include the Blur Gallery with simple, on-canvas controls for immediate results, the all-new Smart Sharpen to make details stand out like never before, Liquify for natural transformations and artistic image distortions, and more than 30 other popular features.

KEY GPU-Accelerated TOOLS in Adobe Photoshop CC

Accelerated Blur Effects

Accelerate photographic blur effects with NVIDA GPUs. Uniformly blur your entire image and then sharpen a single focal point with Iris Blur. Or select multiple focal points and then let Field Blur vary the blurriness between them.

Faster Liquify Effects

Use the Liquify tool to easily manipulate areas of an image as if those areas had been naturally melted together. The GPU enables a more responsive preview than the CPU of subtle changes to retouch an image or drastic distortions to create an artistic effect.

Smart Sharpen

Enhance edge definition with an all-new level of precise control of the sharpening that occurs in shadow and highlight area plus intelligent noise reduction for clear image results.
