Adobe today announced that its Creative Suite 6 (CS6) software set announced in April is now available to purchase. Included in the CS6 product line are new releases of Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Adobe Premier Pro, After Effects, Flash Professional and more, as well as four new suite versions -- Creative Suite 6 Design & Web Premium, Creative Suite 6 Design Standard, Creative Suite 6 Production Premium, and Creative Suite 6 Master Collection.
Lots of great free alternatives to Photoshop exist, but for a hardcore photo editor it is still the gold standard. The last major revision came with the release of creative suite 5 in April 2010, so an update is long overdue. Photoshop CS6 features a ton of new features such content aware filling, vastly improved performance, and the ability to streamline several of the design tools. If any of the above catches your interest you should probably head on over to the download page and grab yourself a copy of the beta.
