Just out. Scroll down to the new Subject Selection tool.

I best get it downloaded then. Here's hoping the HiDPI improvements work out, and that we see them soon in Lr CCC. The poor HiDPI support, even in current versions really needs sorting out. My copy of Office 2007 works without any issues at all on my 5K display, and IMO Windows 10 support for HiDPI is really good.

The new selection tools also look like they could be very useful, many of my images that need some colour adding to a white/grey sky have pretty obvious subjects.

It did not give me the update warning. I read about it and just clicked on the check for app updates.

Thanks for the head's-up. I do some complex masking, so I'll give it a good test.

If it works well and/or if adobe continues to improve it, there will no longer be a need for the 3rd party masking tools such as those presented by topaz and on1.

My only reservations is what is defined as a "subject." All current examples revolve around people pictures. What about landscape shooters? Will it see a tree among other trees as a subject? Only testing will tell.

Subject selection:

Not ready for prime time. At least for me, a complete and spectacular failure.

Two non-people pics - a car and a building. Both extremely easy to mask with substantial contrast / color differences between the "subject" and background. It identified the subjects properly (car, building) but the actual selection was extremely bad.

A new feature. Perhaps it will be improved over time.

Yes, Select Subject seems to work only when the subject has something close to a human face. For me it seems an easy way to start before getting down the the tough details, sort of a quicker Quick Mask for whole human subjects.

The feature does seem pretty well designed for recognizing people. I tried it on a conference room shot with people at various distances and angles. It found seven out of seven, including the guy seen only as the back of a head. One person was holding a tablet up from the table and her hands were selected but not the tablet.

This was my test. Not bad. Got me a lot faster than I could do. It is just a start point.

Appreciate your sample, but what with that extreme depth of field and the deer being in focus and the rest way out of focus, easy peasy.

I think the most generous way to describe this new feature is that it will do the easiest part of making a selection most of the time, leaving the most difficult parts to the user, using the sometimes functional tools.

Here is a try w/ one of our editing images from the Post Processing Challenge.
Not a bad start for a single button push IMO.
