Technology preview features in Photoshop CC 2015.1 release

Design Space (Preview)

Important: Design Space (Preview) requires Mac OS X 10.10 or Windows 8.1 64-bit OS or higher.

Design Space (Preview) is a companion experience to Photoshop for web and app designers. Technically, Design Space (Preview) is an HMTL5/CSS/JavaScript layer built on top of Photoshop. Separating this new experience from standard Photoshop in this manner facilitates a fresh UI, smarter interactions, and faster delivery of top-requested features.

For more information and a list of known issues, see Design Space (Preview).
