Photoshop CS6 New Features


I had some fun talking about what’s new in Photoshop CS6. The Beta came out 3 days ago, so I’m feeling about 3 days behind. This covers the overall improvements and shows how to use them.

It’s a brief run down of whether or not it's worth buying Photoshop CS6. Major changes include new video editing, 3d capabilities, and a far more robust layer pallet. Also, a run down on how to use the Content Aware Move tool and actually get results that work.

After recording it, I poked around to see if there were any good videos out there. The plan was to list a few that were decent but not nearly up to par. Instead, I came across this from Ice Flow:

Their fantastic post on the new features of Photoshop CS6 saved me the effort of doing it myself. There’s no point in releasing a lesson if someone already has a better version of the same thing out there.

There are a few others with run downs that are almost as good. Adobe’s sneak peak videos, The Verge, and plenty of other similar ones, but Ice Flow did it best. Upbeat. Well paced. Informative. I could not ask for more. You’d think I’d be upset someone beat me to the punch, but I’m more relieved that it saves me the time of having to do it myself.
