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

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.
