Adobe Photoshop CS6 - Beta free available for Mac OS X and Windows
Today Adobe revealed the new Beta of Photoshop CS6 - Codename: Superstition; a preview of what's to come on in the next release of the most popular professional digital imaging software. It's available as free download in English and Japanese. At installation, users will be required to provide an Adobe ID to complete a one-time login and online product activation.
The 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.
The new Adobe Mercury Graphics Engine allows near-instant results from popular filters Liquify, Puppet Warp, Transform and Lighting Effects. A refined more modern looking interface 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.
