Adobe Photoshop CS6

Adobe recently released the beta version of Photoshop CS6 and naturally it has improved in several areas as well as getting some new cool functions but according to early beta testers they are really more cool than usable due to lack of quality in the end result, I am talking about the new content aware patch and the content aware move tool.

Adobe has announced that they plan to get 100% of their customers over to their new billing model where you subscribe on the software on a monthly basis, unfortunately there is only information regarding the whole CS6 suite and not separate parts. It will be interesting to see if they will offer only the Photoshop CS6 part at a low monthly cost.

I am not a “photoshop’r”, instead I’m a photo amateur and I will not upgrade to the new CS6 version independent of cost or billing model. Why? Well, partly since there are other alternatives, some even free, that cover my needs and partly because I get my main need covered by the Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) that comes as a part of Lightroom 4. For Lightroom the billing model has also changed drastically and the prices has become much(!) lower, and they also allow me to install the software on two different computers as long as the software is not used simultaneously on the two. This works out great for me! I also believe that Lightroom 4 is “magic” in many other ways as well with its cataloging and publishing possibilities, re-use saved adjustment presets easily, batch handling and not least the possibility to tag photo files with GPS coordinates after they are taken and much more.

Other software I believe cover a photgraphers needs are as follows.

  • Adobe Lightroom 4
  • Nikon Capture NX2 (for Nikon users)
  • Capture One Express 6 (advanced RAW converter)

If someone have a need for more detailed photo manipulation, why not have a look at the free software GIMP  that might be an alternative to Photoshop, it’s free to download here ->>.

I am please with Photoshop CS5.5 and will continue to use it while changing my workflow to more and more do my adjustments in Lightroom or in Nikon Capture NX2 and stop using Photoshop from it.
