Can’t wait for the new Photoshop? Here’s an in-depth report on all of the new and improved features you can expect in Photoshop CS6. Check back to this article frequently for the latest updates!

General Updates


The very first feature you’ll notice in Photoshop CS6 is the new dark color theme which is designed to match other Adobe products such as After Effects and Lightroom. If you don’t like the color, you can change it back to the Light Gray theme or customize it to any color you like.

Preset Manager

Photoshop makes migrating your presets and preferences from CS5 to CS6 easy with the new Preset Manager. You can also save these presets/preferences and load them onto other other computers.

Liquify Filter

The Liquify filter has undergone major performance enhancement. You can now edit photos with no lag – adjustments are made on the fly! In addition, the maximum brush size has increased from 1500 to 15000 pixels.

Adaptive Wide Angle

The Lens Distortion tool was great for fixing small lens distortions but was very limited with wide angle/fisheye distortions. This new tool will let you remove curved lines – just draw lines over straight edges and Photoshop will automatically fix it. It’s apparently very easy to use with few settings to adjust.

Field Blur, Iris Blur, and Tilt Shift

These types of blurs have popular recently and people were using a combination of blur filters and layer masks to create it. It’s easier than ever in CS6 with dedicated filters for these blur effects.
