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

Photoshop CS6 has everything you need to retouch your pictures

By Steven Moore

On Tuesday, April 1, 2014

In this review, I'm going to explain some of the main features of Adobe Photoshop CS6. This is the last title before the appearance of CC Adobe content. For many people, this is the last user-friendly version since the CC version has more features, but far more complicated. However, Photoshop CS6 has useful features that can be used by beginners such as the Content Aware Move tool or the Content Aware Patch tool. They are very useful when you want to work with background images and move or remove the main image.

Filters have also been improved. You will have more intuitive blur filters such as Tilt-shift, Iris blur and Field blur, and you can also correct wide-angle lenses with the Adaptive Wide Angle filter. Apart from improvements on its features, the interface now provides the user with a more smooth control, and all the elements are easier to see.

In conclusion, you can retouch your images and even video files and create masterpieces from simple pictures or videos. From professional works to just a few image retouches, you can use Photoshop CS6 regardless your level of knowledge about Photoshop. Of course, if you are a beginner, you will not do the same than a profession, but Photoshop CS6 simplifies your work a lot.

Pros

  • It has lots of new features
  • It can be used even by beginners
  • The interface is now more user-friendly
  • You can also edit video files

Cons

  • Get the full version is very expensive
  • It can be a bit complicated at first
  • This is only a demo
  • Content-Aware tool is too much complex

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.
