In previous versions of Photoshop, the Eyedropper tool was able to sample from either All Layers or Current Layer. In Photoshop CS6 the Eyedropper tool can still sample from  those options but also has the ability to sample from different combinations of layers including “Current and Below”, “All Layers No Adjustments”, and “Current and Below No Adjustment”.

    Do you have any examples of this? I’m still deliberating whether the jump to CS6 is worth it and I like seeing the results from the new features.

      You can always download the latest version of Photoshop for a 30 day trial.

    Thank you Julieanne. I might do. Just to see if the upgrades are worth it. I’ve seen a few videos on some of the new tools and I like them. I think I might try and get a new camera first then CS6. Rather than the other way around.

    I’m getting started with Premiere Pro CS6 and can’t for the life of me figure out where to find the eyedropper tool. Where is it? Many thanks,
