Adobe launches Creative Suite 6

Adobe has updated its Photoshop Creative Suite 6 (CS6) and Photoshop CS6 Extended products with a speedier graphics processing engine and re-engineered design tools for more consistent formatting.

The latest versions of the digital photography software features a new set of video tools, an updated blur tool and a content-aware patch, which grants users more control by letting them choose the sample area used to create a patch.

Photoshop CS6 Extended integrates all the editing features of CS6 but adds software enhancements, such as advanced tools for 3D design, image and video editing.

Adobe have also unwrapped their Creative Cloud service, a pay-monthly hub that allows you access to all CS6 tools whilst also providing comprehensive cloud services.

By committing to the monthly service you avoid the astronomical price of buying Creative Suite 6 outright, instead you gain access to all tools and further updates for them.

There’s also full cloud functionality which means that if you edit something on your iPad you can then send it to the cloud and seamlessly start editing it on your desktop using Photoshop CS6 or any of the other CS6 apps that have been released today.

One of the key highlights Adobe is focusing on is its new Photoshop CS6 which Adobe is claiming will have almost no delay in processing thanks to their new Mercury Graphics Engine.

Subscriptions will start at  £46.88 ($49.99 in the US) per month on a yearly contract or £70.32 ($74.99in the US) per month on a month-to-month membership while the full version of CS6 Creative Suite can be purchased for up to £2,668 ($2599 in the US) if not upgrading from an earlier version.
