Featuring Three Advancements to Bring a Better Image Editing Experience to Its Users

By Christine Diaz

On Tuesday, May 6, 2014

Adobe Photoshop CS6 is an industry standard image editor with new features. Most notable of these new features are the Content Aware tool, video-editing capabilities, and its improved file management system. All these features contribute to make Photoshop an unbeatable photo and image editor available today.

Content Aware, the first of the new features Photoshop CS6 brings, allows objects that are being edited to be selected, moved, and adjusted without affecting the background. Automatically, the back ground readjusts itself when objects are moved around.

Photoshop also has video-editing capabilities now. The feature has been added to make the software more powerful and usable to many. Now instead of opening another software to edit videos, I can do it all in Photoshop. There’s also the improved file management system in Photoshop which makes it easier to manage edited and created images, photos, and videos.

Also a new feature is the Adobe Photoshop CS6‘s graphic user interface. It has been changed to a more colorful look. Now I can enjoy using Photoshop!

Pros

  • Features improvements to provide more usability
  • Has a more colorful GUI

Cons

  • Requires practice and training to get used to

Making the transition from Gimp 2.8.14 to Adobe Photoshop CS6

By Gfx Syne

On Thursday, March 26, 2015

As someone who has used both Gimp and Photoshop for their graphics, I can say that Gimp is a close, but not a perfect, alternative to Photoshop. If you have the money, then you should certainly consider shelling out some cash to buy a copy of Photoshop CS6. You do not have to re-learn the entire software as you make the switch. That said, many people struggle to figure out how things work in Photoshop after being used to working in Gimp. To help ease the transition, this article will address how things are done in Photoshop CS6.

Here’s a list of some tools with different names but that which carry out the same functionality in Photoshop.

-Photoshop: Gradient Tool (Gimp: Blend Tool)

-Photoshop: Magic Wand Tool (Gimp: Fuzzy Select Tool)

-Photoshop: Pen Tool (Gimp: Path Tool)

-Photoshop: Spot Healing Brush Tool (Gimp: Heal Tool)

Many Gimp users may also struggle to find Photoshop equivalents of functions such as Alpha to Selection (Layer > Transparency > Alpha to Selection). In Gimp, Alpha to Selection selects opaque pixels leaving transparent areas unselected. In Photoshop Ctrl + Click the layer thumbnail to select all opaque pixels.

Also, it helps to know that Liquify (Filter > Liquify) in Photoshop works the same way as iWarp in Gimp (Filter > Distort > iWarp) and Camera Raw is the Photoshop version of Gimp Resynthesizer plug-in in Gimp.

Gimp users may also notice that copying a layer from another window is different in Photoshop. Simply copying/pasting a layer from another window does not work in Photoshop, unlike Gimp. To paste a layer from another window in Photoshop, click, hold and drag the layer to the other tab (do not let go of your mouse yet!) inside Photoshop. Drop the layer as soon as the intended tab becomes visible.

Note: Photoshop automatically creates a new layer if you are copying and pasting within the same window. (In Gimp, you have to manually create a new layer after pasting for the pasted item to show).

In closing, Photoshop CS6 is a very powerful image editing program. The transition from Gimp 2.8.14 to Photoshop CS6 can be hard at times but spending some time to figure out menus, shortcuts, and the tools can make things easier.

Pros

  • More options to explore than Gimp
  • Can be used to create professional raster graphics

Cons

  • Pen tool is difficult to use

Review

Adobe Photoshop CS6 is photo-editing software developed by Adobe. This program is available for both Windows PC and Mac. Although Photoshop is designed for professional work, it can also be used to fix your images even if you've never used this kind of program before. New users can perform simple adjustments to their photos, while other more complex tasks may require some tutorials first. However, practice can be more useful than tutorials, so we strongly recommend that you spend a couple of hours experimenting to improve your outcomes, instead of just watching video tutorials on the Internet.

Adobe Photoshop CS6 offers re-imagined tools, interface improvements and a new graphics engine that works faster than ever

This CS6 version brings powerful improvements and new tools to improve your editing. The program uses the new Adobe Mercury Graphics Engine, which makes your work go faster than ever, regardless of whether you work with Mac or Windows. It also has Auto-Recovery options and a new Background Save feature. It also offers re-imagined tools and some new ones. For instance, the Crop tool allows you to easily change the shape or size of your images, and the Content-Aware Move tool allows you to move or extend elements in order to change your composition. New Blur Gallery filters allow you to create custom blurs such as tilt-shift blur, field blur, or iris blur.

Additionally, Adobe Photoshop CS6 allows you to edit video files, although it doesn't have the complex tools of other specialized video-editing software such as Adobe Premiere. Its new Adobe Media Encoder allows you to export your videos by choosing from a wide range of presets. Popular formats such as MPEG4 or H.264 are included.

How to Use

Adobe Photoshop CS6 keeps the same intuitive interface as in previous versions. Its workflow has been improved, but it is still layer-based. Filters, effects and preferences are located in a toolbar right above the canvas. The right-hand section shows the layers or channels and other layer adjustment options such as curves and color balance, as well as other minor adjustments such as blending modes or opacity. You can manage your videos using the new Video Groups feature in the layers panel. This automatically holds your clips to make things easier when you edit different parts of a video. The left-hand toolbar displays every tool you need in order to fix an image, such as brushes, erasers, magic wand, stamps, etc.

This software can be used for loads of different purposes: you are free to change the brightness of a photo, fix red eyes, or remove some undesirable element in the background. Of course this is just the tip of the iceberg, as Photoshop can be used to generate stunning digital artworks using custom brushes, shapes, cropping tools and filters as well as to modify supported images.
