Download Photoshop Cs6 For Mac Os X



Got slagged yesterday for not making a bigger deal of the release of Photoshop CS6 beta. (It's a free 984 MB download from the Adobe website.) But...I wonder how many people use Photoshop any more. Seems to me most photographers have switched to Lightroom.




Download Photoshop Cs6 For Mac Os X



I downloaded it last night and printed an image quickly with the epson printer profiles and the moab paper profiles. The what I saw on the screen and what printed out was by far better than what I have been getting since CS4. I am going to reprint some pictures to test it some more this weekend but I definitely see an improvement.


Pixlr.com and Gimp (on linux) pretty much cover my bases these days, for free. Used to own photoshop light (whatever they called it) but didnt feel like re-buying all the time (computer/OS changes, etc).


If you shoot film and scan, I think you pretty much have to use photoshop. That goes from Epson Scan-> Photoshop (cropping, dusting, curves, sharpening) -> Lightroom (occasional tweaking and outputting).


Digital images, I usually go to photoshop for more extensive curves and for doing burning and dodging with layer masks. Like if I were doing a wedding, I'd be using photoshop minimally. A portrait I was really into, I might be all over it.


The only real improvement in photoshop I would give a cr4p about would be for them to fix the ridiculously poor print engine (same for lightroom). Why they can't get that straight, I have no idea. It's an absolute mess, and has been for as long as I've been using them.


Fast forward to today, when I set up my new computer, I decided not to re-install any software that I don't use any longer. I haven't touched photoshop for more than 3 years, as Aperture does very nicely all post-processing I usually do, which isn't very much, I admit. I long tuned out of Adobe's update cycle.


Well this finally makes me realise what an old fart I am, I'm still using Photoshop 7.0, I'll soon be lapped by the new Photoshop CS7. Frightening, the program seems as out of date as my Rollei, but they both work and have the virtue of relative simplicity. I only ever use about 5% of what photoshop can do anyway.
