Adobe announces Create Suite 6, the new family of digital media creation software. The new applications are available in several packages, as individual programs. Creative Suite 6 is also available through Adobe Creative Cloud, allowing you to download and install anywhere with Internet access and giving you immediate access to new products as they are released. Creative Suite CS6 programs include Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, Flash, Dreamweaver, Premiere, and more.
The centerpiece of CS6 is the new Adobe Photoshop CS6. It brings several new features to improve efficiency as well as image quality. The most visible change is the dark background for program features, allowing your image to stand out and give a more comfortable working experience. A new crop tool gives better control and faster speed thanks to the new Mercury Graphics Engine. You can also continue working while your image is saved in the background, a, instant productivity boost. You can also enable auto-save to make continuous backups every 10 minutes in case your computer crashed or loses power. Auto corrections for Curves, Levels, and Brightness/Contrast have been improved though a database of thousands of picture types and skin-tone content selection and masking will enhance your portrait editing. Photoshop CS6 is available for pre-order now with upgrade ($199), full version ($699), and subscription options (starting at $19.95/mo).
