Adobe CS6 Launch and Release Date

Posted by Marti Wedewer on April 24th, 2012

Adobe Creative Suite 6

Yesterday Adobe unveiled CS6 and the new Adobe Creative Cloud—if you missed the big announcement, here are some of the big changes and updates.

Adobe Edge and Adobe Muse: One of the biggest changes to CS6 is the addition of two new programs—Adobe Edge and Adobe Muse. Using Adobe Edge, you can create animated web content using HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript. Adobe Muse is great news for designers, allowing them to create websites without writing code. Adobe Edge and Muse will be updated regularly and will be included in the Adobe Creative Cloud subscription. Creative Cloud gives users access to regular updates rather than waiting for new releases.

Photoshop: Adobe released Photoshop CS6 Beta several weeks before the launch to receive feedback from its users—there were more than 1/2 a million downloads in just the first week of its release! New changes coming to Photoshop include a darker user interface, new Content-Aware Move, Extend and Patch Tools, Skin-Aware Masking with Face Detection, Blur Gallery for creating shallow depth of field, tilt-shift blur and graduated blur, a redesigned crop tool, auto-recovery and much more.

Illustrator: New changes coming to Illustrator include an updated tracing engine, a new pattern creator tool, more variable-width strokes, the ability to add gradients to strokes, Gaussian Blur effects and an improved interface.

There are more changes coming in CS6 and we will continue reviewing other applications in another post. Let us know what you think about CS6 and the new Creative Cloud. Will you be upgrading?
