Awaiting the newest release of Adobe Photoshop, CS6, Adobe has finally released a free public beta for the new software from their Web site. The download for Mac OS X comes in at a little under 1GB and the download for Windows is about 1.7GB.
Thus, you need to have patience and time to download it as download speeds are different everywhere.
One can expect massive user demand to be jamming the servers on Adobe’s side as well.
The free public beta release for Adobe Photoshop CS6 will give 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. This 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.
The Adobe Photoshop application has a new appearance. It has a 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:
