Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended Review

by Muid Latif, Official Adobe Influencer (Malaysia)

Adobe has progressively paying attention to their innovation in their applications. Recently, Adobe just released the state-of-the-art Creative Suite 6 and Creative Cloud, another flexibility offers to users to work seamlessly at anytime and anywhere. It's a creative revolution for all of us creative practitioners.

Before I proceed to review two of their coolest features, I would like to say a big thanks to both Adobe South East Asia (SEA) and Text100 Malaysia for providing us, Adobe Influencers the opportunity to explore and pilot this amazing creative product. 

Just to share, during the official web telecast of Adobe CS6 launch on 24th of April, besides Adobe Design Achievements Awards that runs annually, Adobe announced a new scholarship award offers to higher learning institution. This definitely embark another great support for our creative industry to expand further in creative content development. 

Rockin' the new feature of Photoshop CS6: Adaptive Wide Angle 

As a digital artist, I was eager to find out if this new feature only applies to photographs, and to my surprise, it works almost in any interface according to our justification. I used my watercolor to straighten it's interface to make it more symmetrical, and I'm overwhelmed how efficient this feature had helped me to work more faster.

Image: I had import my own water color artwork. Notice the guide line, it's not straighten.

Image: Next, I open up 'Adaptive Wide Angle' tool from my FILTER Tool

Image: From here on, it will launch to a pop-up window where user can adjust either automatically, or using manually in perspective, fish eye lens and etcetera. 

Image: This is the result after the adjustment using the awesome Adaptive Wide Angle tool. It's so fast and easy, like stealing candy from a baby (kiddin'). No serious, I would.

Hello, you 3D!

It get's better with fluid 3D text composition within Photoshop CS6 Extended. In the past, I usually do 3D text in Adobe Illustrator, or in XARA 3D (Windows), but now Photoshop CS6 makes any creative creation more prominent. Honestly, I was blown away by how light this feature runs on my Macbook without worrying about my hardware performance. It made me in tears (I know, so much drama....)

So, what are you waiting for? Download a trial today, and upgrade to Adobe CS6 to experience another level of infinity in creativity! 

Thank you for reading, and have a blast working on your new artworks or design using Adobe CS6. Don't forget to tweet or mention to me via twitter or my facebook page to share your work in progress (WIP) or creations.
