Some Thoughts about Adobe Photoshop CS 6 Extended

This is the first in a series of stories to simply describe some of Adobe's key offerings. Despite its longevity, CS2 is certainly not bad, and in my opinion, this is a very smart move from Adobe. The only real downside - aside from the prerequisite of an Adobe account - is the fact that the Mac version was designed for PowerPC devices, hence you will need OS X 10.2.8-10.3.8, or Rosetta, in order to get things up and running. At that time many photography sites wrote the same thing about CS2 becoming free.

Office has now similar model as Adobe but it has one feature that makes it acceptable - subscriptions for personal non commercial use. I will be ok with Adobe subscriptions maybe if they also make licenses for personal, non commercial use that will cost half or less than current price. Until recently there wasn't a "Lightroom CC", there was Lightroom N in two versions: perpetual license and subscription.

It originally started spreading when Adobe shut down the verification servers - and published this info. The company immediately made it clear (and this info is included on the Adobe website you linked): only users with a valid CS2 Adobe Photoshop CS 6 extended licence may download and use the software legally. If you did not purchase a CS2 licence when it was still available, then the copy you download from Adobe is just as illegal piracy as if you would download it from a torrent.

Before you smash open your saving for Photoshop” piggy bank to splash on expensive champagne in joyous celebration, it's important to note that we're not talking about the latest version, rather the ten year old Photoshop (and Creative Suite) CS2. It would appear Adobe has grown tired of maintaining a bunch of activation servers to keep users on the right side of legal, and has simply caved, instead releasing it free of charge. Supports layers, masks, and some basic tools of Photoshop.

He also provides four bonus chapters, along with all the images used in the book for download on the book's companion you're a digital photographer, and if you're ready to learn all the tricks of the trade”—the same ones that today's leading pros use to correct, edit, retouch, and sharpen their work—then you're holding the book that will do just that. Photoshop Layers are a key building block for creativity and productivity.

Easily enhance any clip using the full range of familiar Photoshop editing tools, and combine clips and stills with transitions, audio, and effects such as pan and zoom.

You can let Lightroom CC sync the slides to the music automatically, or do it manually. While this is a nice improvement, I still feel that Lightroom falls behind the defunct iPhoto with all of its 3D effects. One really welcome addition to Lightroom CC is the Pet Eye red eye removal. There is a bunch of smaller features that were added to Lightroom CC. The Web Module now features three new HTML5 templates that are compatible with desktop and tablet computers.

Install the Bridge 6.1.1 update - this update includes security updates, bug fixes and compatibility updates for Photoshop CC (2015). Install the Lightroom CC (v2015.1)/Lightroom 6 (v6.1) update - this update includes bug fixes, new camera support, and new features for Creative Cloud members. VERY IMPORTANT - By default, when you install Photoshop CC (2015) it will uninstall prior versions of Photoshop CC you have installed. Quit and relaunch Photoshop CC. Sync Settings should be enabled.

I'm not going to keep putting money into Adobe to keep currently working software working. It is not the same as having a CS6 License where you keep the software forever and it doesn't really change. Think of it like every year adobe releases a new version of PS and LR for $120 instead of a monthly fee. The subscription model has allowed Adobe to offer more frequent updates and add features quicker. Serif has launched Affinity Photo for the Mac. But first, the Photoshop news.

Photoshop expert Dan Moughamian shows how to leverage the power of the newly updated Smart Sharpen filter in Photoshop CC, improving the details in your rendered picture formats, outside the raw workflow. In this excerpt from The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 Book: The Complete Guide for Photographers , Martin Evening explains how Upright adjustments work, suggests an order for Upright adjustments, and shows how to synchronize Upright settings.
