Well if you are a Photoshop user there are some changes happening that you might want to be aware of. Adobe has decided to bet the farm that the future lies in digital distribution and subscriptions.
Let me explain, as of May 6, 2013, you will still be able to buy CS6 but it will be only from a 3rd party reseller. You are no longer able to download Photoshop (or any other Adobe product except for Lightroom) and a license to use CS6 from the Adobe website. Adobe has not said when it will stop selling CS6 all together but my suspicion is that as soon as current stock is sold there will be no more copies available at the local Best Buy.
The fact that the new edition of Photoshop and other Adobe products will out in June only confirms my suspicion. So how do you get Photoshop and you other favorite Adobe products, well you get them from Creative Cloud.
Creative Cloud is Adobe’s subscription service that they released just over a year ago and is how Adobe is planning on getting all of its tools in to the hands of designers, photographers, videographers, web developers and audio professionals.
If you are a photographer, illustrator, artist or just a hobbyist with iPhone, let me give you one piece of advice.
DO NOT UPLOAD YOUR PHOTOS TO SOCIAL MEDIA SITES.
Here is a sneak peak at some of the new functionality for content aware in the upcoming Photoshop CS6. As well as a more functional content aware fill it also includes content aware move and content aware extension, some pretty cool features.
Here is a brand new ICL camera unveiled at CES in Vegas a couple of days ago. As for price it looks like it is going to be at the high end for a consumer mirrorless camera. $1800 for the body and $600 for the lenses (only 3 available at this time) at least that is the rumors.
Enjoy the video.
