5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price in the long run 27 July 2012
Access Method:Download| Edition:Standard Version (PC)|Verified Purchase
Although a stiff entry price, CS6 and predecessors are worth it in the long run, not least the discounted future upgrade oportunities. I may have dabbled with dubious versions in my mispent past (going back to 1999), but if you're serious about photography, a legitimate version ultimately makes sense. The cost is not huge when you think about how important photoshop is to your final product, and compared to what camera equipment costs these days, it brings things into perspective.

Having moved from CS3 to CS6, the new features on offer are quite dramtic, the adaptive wide angle filter is an amazing tool and is actually 'fun' to use and experiment with. The shadows and highlights tools has been improved considerably, with halos a thing of the past. Noise reduction is impressive, and as effective as any add-on plug-in...just a shame that brushing noise reduction that features in current adobe lightroom, isn't available in photoshop.

One feature, not sure when it was introduced, that has grabbed my attention is the ability to fade most adjustments, and this has proved it's worth when fine tuning an image after an auto adjustment has not quite done the job, but has got pretty close.

Bridge seems to work seemlessly, although I gather some have had issues (I use Win7 64), the mini bridge feature is handy but I do wish I could find out how to get Bridge to launch at the same time as I open Photoshop...which was the case with CS3.

As with most photographers, even advanced ones, I will only ever scratch the surface of what photoshop can offer.... but each year I learn something new in photoshop, which increases it's worth to me. All in all, very glad I finally pulled the trigger on a full version.

Access Method:Download| Edition:Standard Version (PC)|Verified Purchase
Photoshop CS6 is a superbly powerful bit of software, but with Elements and, to a lesser extent Lightshop, falling in price and increasing in function, is it still worth the hefty entry price for the "daddy" of the Adobe photo processing family? The answer is probably, yes.

Interestingly, CS6 has also increased in user friendliness which makes it even more attractive to the non-professional user. In particular the devastatingly good (and much improved from earlier versions) RAW processor has taken out the need to be quite so reliant on the "curves" functions of the software. Dedicated fans of curves still have access to all this clever goodness, but the RAW processor (which works not only on RAW images but also on jpegs and other formats, albeit less amazingly) means that with some simple intuitive adjustments, you can rescue even the most drab photograph to something that looks good. If your goal is photo processing, which after all is the main point of Photoshop, then you are likely to spend more time in the RAW processor than you will in Photoshop per se. Not least because changes here are "non-destructive" so if you get a little too heavy on the changes you can always revert to the original.

You only need to move into the main part of Photoshop to manipulate your images - which may be anything from removing unwanted distractions to playing around with filters etc. It's here that the whole thing is less intuitive unless you have some experience with the Adobe stable of software. One great benefit of CS6 is that it now looks much more like the interface of Elements and Lightroom, so if you have some experience of these then you have a significant head start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Photoshop CS6 18 Sep 2012
Access Method:Download| Edition:Standard Version (PC)|Verified Purchase
Photoshop is very pricey and about 200 to 300 too much in my opinion. Even though I received a large discount to buy the full blown CS6 software outright, it is still pricey. Consider that you will probably only ever use about 20 to 30% of the functionality and especially so if you are a photographer the price scenario becomes worse. Adobe got it right when they reduced the price of Lightroom 4 from around 250 to 100 so why haven't they done the same with CS6 and used the lower price to reign in the pirate software users? Most users would probably pay 250 to 350 everytime including a reasonable upgrade price! Not too long ago Photoshop was around the 350 mark. Anyway, enough said about the bad point of pricing.

What can I say, buy this software. It is pricey but worth it in the long run. Using genuine software and then registering it with Adobe gives you access to the Adobe website and a whole plethora of free tutorials, advice, techniques, plugins and much more helping you get up to speed quickly. Photoshop CS6 is amazing and the improvements to the newer tools that appeared in CS5 are leaps and bounds better. Currently I'm using the software on a basic PC running Vista 32bit and only 3GB of ram and it starts up faster than CS5 and doesn't really give me any problems until I'm running some heavy layers and adjustments. Everything seems to run quicker and smoother which may be down to the newer programming methods Adobe are using.

This is my first jump into full blown Photoshop as I've recently been using Elements 9 and Lightroom 4 which both compliment each other but wanting to take my image manipulation further and getting an almost 45% discount from Amazon, the deal was sealed. If you don't want to buy the software outright why not consider the yearly subscription offer that Adobe are currently offering at around 17 to 18 per month?
