Adobe Shows Off New Photoshop CS6 FeaturesBy: Zach Walton - May 8, 2012
So, it’s official: Adobe CS6 is out there and in the hands of all you creative types. One of the most popular programs is no doubt going to be Photoshop, but the regulars probably already know all about the new features and what they can do with it. Those people are forgetting a very important new demographic however.
With the launch of Adobe CS6, the company also announced that Creative Cloud would be launching this Friday. It allows anybody to have access to all of the tools contained in CS6 for a small fee of $49.99 a month. These new people who jump in at this point might have no formal training or experience with the new tools in Photoshop CS6. The video below is for them, but you creative types might want to watch it as well. You might just a learn a few tricks.
The video tutorial comes from Adobe Senior Digital Evangelist Julieanne Kost. She shows off all the new features that come with Photoshop CS6 Extended including the new Mercury Graphics Engine and Adobe Camera Raw 7. She will also discuss the photographic blur effects, Adaptive Wide Angle, new Shape layers, and the new and improved Crop tool.
Unfortunately, the above video was meant to cover Photoshop’s new video editing features as well, but Kost ran out of time. She instead pointed us to a video she had previously created that goes over the video editing tools in Photoshop CS6. It’s not as in-depth as the above video, but it should give you some ideas as to how the new feature works.
