Photoshop CS6 beta free download

The Photoshop CS6 beta will offer digital creatives a preview of what’s to come in the next release of Adobe‘s leading digital imaging software. Packed with innovative new features and enhancements, the beta is available for Mac OS and Windows platforms, and the final version is slated for release in the first half of 2012.

Key features include:

  • New additions to the Content-Aware tools – the Content-Aware Patch allows greater control by letting users select and duplicate an area of an image to fill in or “patch” another, and Content-Aware Move lets users select and magically move an object to a new place in the image
  • Incredible performance – powered by the new Adobe Mercury Graphics Engine, enabling near-instant results from popular editing tools including Liquify, Puppet Warp, Transform and Lighting Effects; and a refined, modern interface featuring dark UI options to make images pop
  • New 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 quickly zero in on any layer, and new type styles let designers swiftly apply type treatments to their designs
  • New 3D editing features and quantitative imaging analysis capabilities – these features will be included in the shipping version of Photoshop CS6 Extended when it becomes available

The download is available now as a free download, allowing customers to try it out and offer feedback to help improve the product. For information on how to install Photoshop CS6 beta, visit the Adobe Labs.
