    Default Adobe Photoshop CS6 Free Public Beta Launched


    Awaiting the newest release of Adobe Photoshop, CS6, Adobe has finally released a free public beta for the new software from their Web site, which can be downloaded from this link. The download for Mac OS X comes in at a little under 1GB and the download for Windows is about 1.7GB, so downloading it will take some patience and time will vary depending on your download speeds. Expect massive user demand to be jamming the servers on Adobe's side as well.

    The free public beta release for Adobe Photoshop CS6 gives users a free seven-day trial, after which users will have to pay to gain access to the full software through their Adobe ID. Adobe Photoshop CS6 comes packed with Adobe's Mercury Graphics Engine, which can use the graphics processing unit instead of the computer's central processing unit to speed up processor-intensive functions to help with overall performance.



    Obvious right out of the box is the new appearance of the Adobe Photoshop application, having that darker look instead of the general light gray color we have become used to from Adobe in previous Adobe Photoshop generations. New application features include:

    Be sure to give the new Adobe Photoshop CS6 beta a try if you like Photoshop. If you opt for trying the software, Adobe will be expecting you to let them know of any problems with the software so it can be hammered out for the final release.

    I like the new look. But I don't do much heavy stuff so mainly use Pixelmator.

    The new UI looks like the same thing as Adobe Photoshop Elements 6. I don't see how going back to something 4 years old is a "modern UI"

    I've had the beta for 3 months already for mac, I like everything but since its a beta, its still buggy.. hopefully this new beta release patches these bugs! Same system performance as CS5, but like i said hopefully they fixed that.
