Scott Kelby is widely recognised as an authoritative tutor on Photoshop.
So his short video on some of the lesser known new features in Photoshop CS6 is worth a look.
Have you had a chance yet to use CS6, either the Beta or the trial version?
I used the Beta version for several weeks and found it fine, although I wasn’t overwhelmed by any new features. The new appearance of the interface is very similar to Lightroom which I use a lot.
The content aware move tool had lots of publicity, but so far I’ve found it works best only when the background is relatively uncomplicated – like sky or grass.
It would be interesting to hear what you think of the new CS6 – so let us know if you have tried it yet.
Although it’s had relatively little publicity so far, I find the new subscription service for CS6 interesting. For £14.29 (+VAT) a month, you get to use CS6 and have it updated whenever there is a new version released. It’s a bit like paying for Sky TV – uncomfortable at first when we were used to a free to air service, but now routinely used by many people for all their TV entertainment.
I wonder whether our use of Photoshop (and many other very expensive pieces of software) will go the same way? Gary
