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

Unleash your creativity with the new Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 6

By Sachin Titus

On Wednesday, May 14, 2014

I think an introduction is not necessary to write about Photoshop. Because, Photoshop is a revolutionary product through which dreams are woven and imaginations come true. Its possibilities are infinite and the world will be colorless without it. Each new version of this miraculous canvas comes out with a lot of modifications and bug fixes for ease of use. Now let’s check what’s new with the new baby in this family, Adobe Photoshop CS6.

Adobe Photoshop CS6 seems to be an optimized version of Adobe PS CS5 with only a few additional features like Content Aware tools and filling, enhanced 3-Dimensional image editing, some video editing facilities, customizable app background, modified file system etc added. It should be noted that most of these features where present in CS5 also in an incomplete manner. Thus, CS6 becomes just a fixed version of CS5 in many cases. Anyway, it is the best graphics/image editor available in the market today.

CS6 differs from CS5 in GPU acceleration and performance matters. 3D editing enhancements is another feature. Updated graphics driver is necessary to handle 3d images. Even though this feature helpful in creating advanced 3d text effects and surreal manipulations, Photoshop is not being a substitute to 3ds MAX or MAYA. Content Aware tools are updated and now you can remove objects from a photo without making much patch marks. Small video editing works can also be performed using PS CS6. Customizable app background is another attraction of the software.

Verdict:

Photoshop CS6 opens a new world of image editing capabilities for creative minds.. With no opponents, it is the best image editor in the market. With integrated 3D and video editing options, it is not a loss to pay 860

for this software. In my opinion, you should go for PS CS6 instead of choosing any other software.

Pros

  • Improved GPU acceleration and performance
  • Enhanced 3D and video editing options
  • App background can be customized
  • Content aware tools for patch free selection, removal etc.

Cons

  • CS6 is just a fine tuned version of CS5
  • Price is very high compared to other image editors
  • Video editing facilities are still incomplete
  • Newbies cannot use it with ease

Image Editor Gets an Overhaul to Highlight Its Capabilities and New Features

By Reinalei Jamir

On Tuesday, May 13, 2014

It is hard not to notice the changes that have been incorporated into the Adobe Photoshop CS6. At first glance, its colorful revamped user interface will definitely catch your attention. Digging deeper, it has the Adobe Mercury Graphics Engine, Content Aware tool, video editing, Blur Gallery (yes, a gallery full of blurring options!), and the Bridge browser. Let us take a look at these new features.

Adobe’s Mercury Graphics Engine is a gift to designers and artists. When I work with Photoshop, loading takes up a lot of time, and thus reduces my productivity. With the new graphics engine, work is amazingly faster. This unparalleled speed gives the software more power. With more creative options and imaging magic, speed and power is a major plus.

To produce more creative options and imaging magic, Photoshop CS6 now features the new Content Aware tool and a gallery full of blurring options. I was able to produce superior designs and videos. It also features a new Crop tool which enabled me to move objects I edit without readjusting my background.

Adobe Photoshop CS6 also features the enhanced Bridge file browser. It is a very powerful library management system where I can manage and sort photos, images, and videos. It has a thumbnail preview for faster organizing task. All these features integrated into a single photo, video and image-editing software, makes Photoshop number one to expert artists and beginners alike.

Pros

  • Features new tools to improve photo-editing
  • Has a highly-dependable library management system

Cons

  • Demands powerful system requirements to run

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.
