Photoshop Cs6 Beta

March 22, 2012 by staff 

Photoshop Cs6 Beta, Adobe has announced, for the second time in its history, a free public beta of Photoshop. Photoshop CS6 will be available to try for the next few months as Adobe readies its Creative Suite of applications for launch alongside the brand new Creative Cloud online hub, targeted to creative pros. The Photoshop beta is available now on Adobe Labs. For Macs, the new Photoshop version works only on 64-bit Mac systems, and no longer in 32-bit mode. Windows PCs will need to have Windows XP with Service Pack 3 or higher.

Various under-the-hood improvements promise to make life easier and protect long hours of labor intensive operations. The highest profile of these include Background Save and Auto Recovery, Preset Migration and Sharing, and the new Mercury Graphics Engine.

Simply selecting some program preferences lets Photoshop automatically save and recover your work in the event of a power interruption. When you upgraded from previous versions of Photoshop, you often lost painstakingly applied presets that automated many repetitive tasks. The new version lets you apply your presets, tools and workspaces to the new upgrade. While the Mercury engine is familiar to users of Premiere Pro, Photoshop’s new Mercury Graphics Engine is mostly a software-based implementation of multicore functionality.

The changes in the new version of Photoshop are immediately apparent. The program has gone over to the dark side by default, opening to a sophisticated-looking dark gray interface. This is intended to complement themes of some of Adobe’s other creative programs — specifically Lightroom 4, Premiere Pro and After Effects.

Additional default themes in medium gray, light gray, and black are also included. However, you can set the interface colors to whatever you want, and they change immediately. The same holds true for Photoshop’s companion asset management application, the now 64-bit Bridge. The dark, Aperture-like theme looks attractive, but as with all light type on a dark background, menu items can be difficult to read.
