Adobe Photoshop CS6 Public Beta Now Available


I’ve been playing around with the Adobe Photoshop CS6 public beta for a little while, and it’s pretty cool. The window and toolbars are darker, it’s faster, the content-aware features are incredible, the Creative Cloud is cool, and there are 3D capabilities. You can download the free public beta here. You can even use it to edit a little video, but it isn’t as powerful an NLE as something dedicated like Final Cut Pro X or Premiere Pro. That feature is aimed more at photographers who sometimes record a little video with their DSLRs while taking pictures, and want to do a quick video edit.

Check out this link for a round-up of hands-on previews. My friend and colleague Jeremiah Hall and I will have our own first-hand looks soon, which I’ll link to here.
