Photoshop: new look, great new features, and many user-inspired enhancements

By Ivy Paloma

On Thursday, April 3, 2014

I tried using Adobe Photoshop CS6 on my computer, and I can say that for a newbie photo editor like me, using this program is quite difficult. I have not used any photo editing applications from Adobe before and I am only familiar with using GIMP to edit photos and draw people orcharacters most of the time. So you can imagine trying a new one can be a daunting experience.

Initially, I tried to use the tool buttons that are included in this new software. Hands down to Adobe since they did a good job on providingthese useful tools that assist photo editing aficionados. Most of the tools were advanced and improved, but for a beginner like me, I find themhard to get used to. Another thing was when I looked at its interface, it is unlike other versions of Adobe Photoshop that I had seen from thetutorials available on the internet. It seems that the new version has a darker interface than others. Nonetheless, what I like about thisprogram is the Content Aware because it is helpful. Most novice users will be confused the first time they utilize this software. But I believeyou will eventually get used to it. I am looking forward to mastering the different features of this application.

Pros

  • It improves speed and performance
  • Excellent text and shape improvements
  • Provides powerful video editing tool
  • New Background Save and Auto-Recovery features

Cons

  • Fast graphics card is essential
  • Does not work with iCloud
  • Price may be too expensive for some
  • Bridge CS6 does not have significant improvements

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

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

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

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.
