You may remember my post last month which gave you all a sneak peek at what’s in store for our flagship image editing software, Adobe Photoshop. We recently announced that we are previewing Photoshop CS6 as a free beta edition on Adobe Labs until the full version is launched later in the year.
We are extremely excited about this new release which we consider to be groundbreaking. Photoshop CS6 is stacked with new features including an evolution of the Content Aware functionality first introduced in Creative Suite 5 which will really empower both students and pros to become more efficient in making visually stunning and highly creative images.
For the first time in Photoshop’s history, we’re also including video into the standard edition of Photoshop CS6 to be fully supportive of the demands of the HDSLR user, enabling the crossover into editing of video clips without the need to learn the complexities of video editing programs. We’ve had an amazing initial response to the beta, with PC Pro giving the verdict that there are “improvements all round and some impressive surprises, including advanced video handling – but it’s the reworked interface and graphics engine that really make the difference.”
I know many of you have either used the product with your students or are at least familiar with it, so I welcome you all to download it and try it out for yourselves. Let us know what you think!
