USER REVIEWS

The same program but with new features to make the work easier

By Stephanie Jackson

On Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Adobe Photoshop CS6 stands out by its new interface, that fit the rest of the software of the audiovisual suite of Adobe. You can choose between four color tones from dark to clear and adapt the software to our lightning conditions. Icons have been redesigned too. Maybe, this new version stands out the most because of the little improvements that make the work of the user easier. Now, we will be able to search and filter layers by their names, type, color, effects and attributes. You will not have to go crazy looking for the correct layer anymore. In the layer tab, now we can apply blend modes and edit the properties of several layers at once.

In addition, even though it seems like a forgettable feature, the information that is displayed with the cursor. For example, if you move a layer, you will be given the information about the vertical and horizontal movement. However, this new version also brings new features such as the Mixing Tool. It allows us to move objects to another area of the image and it automatically will fill the empty area and integrate it with the background.

Pros

  • It is easy to use for expert users
  • It has lots of improvements
  • It has important new features

Cons

  • It uses too much system resources
  • the full version is not free

Adobe Photoshop CS6 presents exciting and advanced new features for all types of users, and displays a fresh new look with remarkable performance enhancements to benefit everyone.

I think the biggest advantage if you purchase this upgrade appears from the many speed variations and time-saving advances. Overall, Photoshop CS6 is surely a worthy upgrade from earlier versions, but especially for those still using CS4 and lower.

It is right that Photoshop is expensive, but the venture does pay off in increased productivity and extreme flexibility. At the moment, Photoshop offers a wide range of purchasing options, so it is going to be a lot easier to get it.

This program is a lot different from the usual photo editing applications that I used before. As I started to discover how to use it, I find this application loaded with different features that I was not able to do before. It also brings better precision to setting when it comes to colors and custom measures for shapes.

Pros

  • Quite easy to learn this program
  • Perfect tool for computer designers

Cons

  • Too expensive to get one of this

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.
