CS6 launches on IMAX, June 6 in San Jose
The Creative Suite User Group of San Jose is partnering with Creative Suite Lovers and other Bay Area user groups to present the new features of CS6 in the amazing IMAX Theatre at San Jose Tech Museum… Our keynote speaker is the great Al Mooney, Adobe Product Manager for Professional Video Editing
Registration is $20 per person (as renting the theater isn’t cheap), but event organizer Sally Cox notes that they’re giving away two CS6 Master Collections (worth $2600 apiece) plus 20 3-month subscriptions to Creative Cloud (Master Collection & then some). Should be a fun event.

Tools added now let them pick colors and create transferable palettes on the fly, for instance, as well as measure design components with a click.
Here’s a 1-minute tour of what’s new:
