If you have the previous version, CS5.5, or any older version for that matter, you might be wondering what’s included in the latest of CS6. Is any of it good for you?
New features have been added to almost all of the individual products with modern interfaces and sophisticated tools. Photoshop has intuitive video editing, Illustrator has new tools for pattern creation, and InDesign has added Liquid Layout, adapting to page sizes.
In fact, you’ll find new features in practically all programmes including: Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash Pro, InCopy, Premiere Pro, After Affects, Audition and Encore. Edge and Muse have been dropped from packages and are now being sold separately.
Video enthusiasts have two new applications to discover: Prelude, a rapid tag and transcode video tool, and SpeedGrade, which brings state-of –the-art colour grading to your productions. Both are included in Production Premium and Master Collection CS6.
Not only that, Adobe has adapted to the hoards of online creatives and introduced CS6 Design and Web Premium. It’s a combination of Design Premium and Web Premium, bringing together the leading tools for web design in one package.
Whatever your wants or needs, Adobe offers trials to download, so why not you give CS6 a free run first?
