Adobe Systems Inc. just announced that the beta version of Photoshop CS6 is available in both Mac and PC versions as a free download from Adobe Labs. The Beta version includes all of the features of Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CS6 Extended, including the new 3D editing features. You can download the beta, try it out and even provide feedback on the beta forum.
This latest version of Photoshop includes enhancements to the software’s performance and new additions to the popular Content-Aware tools. You now have greater control using the Content-Aware Patch, while Content-Aware move lets you select and magically move an object to a new place in the image.
According to the company, the new Adobe Mercury Graphics Engine will enable near-instant results when using such tools as Liquify, Puppet Warp, Transform and Lighting Effects. Improvements have also been made to layers and type.
Look for Adobe to release the final version of CS6 by mid-year. Download Adobe Photoshop CS6 Beta software from Adobe Labs: http://labs.adobe.com/.
