UI Consistency
Photoshop usually had a problem where there were buttons in one dialog box, sliders in another, checkboxes in a third. By having a consistent look to the program, it makes it very easy for you to get efficient and consistent.



Oil Paint is Here By Default
Oil Paint was a Pixel Bender filter that needed to be added separately to your Photoshop installation, now you can access it as an Artistic Filter under the Filter menu

When you select a new checkbox called Skin tones, you have the option to have Photoshop automatically detect faces.

Photoshop is even more intelligent when auto-correcting problems with its adjustments
