Adobe Announces Photoshop CS6 Beta – See My Top 6 Favorite Features!

Today we are releasing a Public Beta of one of my all time favorite tools – Adobe Photoshop CS6 Beta is here!

New Features in Photoshop CS6 Beta

Photoshop CS6 beta demonstrates Adobe’s focus on huge performance enhancements, imaging magic and creativity tools that offer customers a new experience in digital imaging. Key features include new additions to the Content-Aware tools: Content-Aware Patch allows greater control by letting users select and duplicate an area of an image to fill in or “patch” another. Content-Aware Move lets users select and magically move an object to a new place in the image.

Customers will experience incredible performance, powered by the new Adobe Mercury Graphics Engine*, enabling near-instant results from popular editing tools including Liquify, Puppet Warp, Transform and Lighting Effects; and a refined, modern interface featuring dark UI options to make images pop. New and re-engineered design tools make creating designs faster and more efficient. Vector layers allow users to apply dashed lines and gradient strokes, searchable layers help quickly zero in on any layer you need, and new type styles let designers quickly apply type treatments to their designs.

In addition, the Photoshop CS6 beta offers all the features of Adobe Photoshop CS6 and Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended, such as new 3D editing features and quantitative imaging analysis capabilities. These features will be included in the shipping version of Photoshop CS6 Extended when it becomes available.

  • Stephan Nicholas Reimers-Dahl

    Oh this is really really great Terry. This is worth an upgrade. Every penny of it.

  • Marc Boucher

    Hi Terry,

    I see your video on your app CS5 on my ipad, do we have to buy a new one for CS6 or you will change the name of the app?

    • Confused… which App are you referring to your iPad? If you’re referring to my Learn the Creative Suite App, then no. The CS6 content will appear there as it is published. The App is not CS version specific.

  • Good stuff Terry.

    The video editing is very cool. Content aware patch tool is nice and the content aware tool itself looks very interesting. I can’t wait to see the other features.


  • Bill Young

    Thanks for the video Terry. Very helpful; I hadn’t heard about that change to the patch tool. Nice.

    After Scott Kelby’s “open letter” last November, I lost track of what Adobe’s upgrade policy is to get to CS6 from various earlier versions. I asked NAPP and they didn’t know. Do you? Thanks.

    • Thanks! Yes you will be able to upgrade from previous versions.

  • Terry,
    I was kind of sitting on the fence about upgrading to CS6, let alone trying the public beta. But this video just sold me! This is why you’re an Adobe “evangelist.” You’ve earned your pay. 🙂

  • The wide angle filter looks vey intriguing. I can easily see how you can get out of control trying to straighten all those lines.
