Today, Adobe announced Adobe Photoshop CS6 beta. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to download the software – available as a free beta on Adobe Labs (opens in new tab) for Mac OS and Windows – and provide feedback directly to the product team.
The beta includes several new features and enhancements:
- An updated, darker UI to makes images pop
- Increased performance, powered by the new Adobe Mercury Graphics Engine, that accelerates results from popular editing tools including Liquify, Puppet Warp, Transform and Lighting Effects
- Content-Aware Patch, which allows greater control by letting users select and duplicate an area of an image to fill in or “patch” another
- Content-Aware Move, which lets users select and move an object to a new place in the image
