Apply ISO-adaptive presets:

Adjust hue locally:
- Access the Hue slider in the Adjustment Brush, Graduated Filter, and Radial Filter panels. This slider allows you to change colors in specific areas of the photo without affecting the rest of the photo. Ensure to select Fine Adjustment if you're adjusting skin tone for extremely precise hue adjustments.
Center crop overlay:
- While cropping a photo, it is common to align a part of the photo exactly in the center of the frame. This was difficult to precisely do with a 3x3 grid overlay. You now have an option to use a 2x2 grid overlay while cropping a photo. This centered crop overlay guides you to precisely crop the centre of the photo.
