I have just seen that Adobe have made available to download the new Photoshop CS6 Beta !!!
Download Photoshop CS6 beta for Mac (DMG, 984 MB)
Download Photoshop CS6 beta for Windows (ZIP, 1.7 GB)
WOW! 1,7 GB !!! :eek:
Be aware that this is a DIRECT download and DOES NOT use Adobe´s own special download manager to avoid problems and so I recommend to use a trusted browser to do it.
I can recommend to use the www.opera.com browser that for me is the best and faster one for downloading BIG files.
PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT MISS THE NEW VIDEO ALSO
Be aware that this video ONLY shows 6 of the new features, and there are much more!
SO I think that the rumors are right that the final version could be released sometime in April 2012, or if not in the first days of May.
Photoshop CS6 Highlights
Content-Aware Patch — Patch images with greater control using the newest member of the Content-Aware family of technologies. Choose the sample area you want to use to create your patch, and then watch Content-Aware Patch magically blend pixels for a stunning result.
Blazingly fast performance and a modern UI — Experience unprecedented performance with the Mercury Graphics Engine, which gives you near-instant results when you edit with key tools such as Liquify, Puppet Warp, and Crop.* Plus, a refined, fresh, and elegant Photoshop interface features dark background options that make your images pop.
New and re-engineered design tools — Create superior designs fast. Get consistent formatting with type styles, create and apply custom strokes and dashed lines to shapes, quickly search layers, and much more.
Photoshop CS6 beta includes all the features in Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CS6 Extended.
Take this opportunity to try out the 3D image editing and quantitative image analysis capabilities of Photoshop Extended*, but note that—while these features will be included in the shipping version of Photoshop CS6 Extended—they will not be included in the shipping version of Photoshop CS6.
IMPORTANT FOR THE CS6 BETA INSTALLATION
Do I need a serial number to install the Photoshop CS6 beta?
No. When you begin the Photoshop CS6 beta installation process, you will be presented with a Welcome Screen. To install the Photoshop CS6 beta, simply select the option labeled "Try. I want to try Adobe Photoshop CS6 for a limited time." Do not select the option labeled "Install. I have a serial number."
I have installed the Photoshop CS6 beta. How do I activate it?
You are prompted to activate the Photoshop CS6 beta as part of installation.
The following activation requirements will need to be completed within seven days after first launch of the Photoshop CS6 beta or it will stop working: Log in with an Adobe ID and Activate the product online.
If you do not have an Adobe ID, you will be prompted to create one as part of the Photoshop CS6 beta installation and activation process.
Once you have completed the activation process, you no longer need to be online to use the beta.
