I believe the gray interface (which I like a lot) can be adjusted to varying degrees from PS5 light gray to the new darker grey.

Preferences -> Intrface …

You can choose from four different gray templates plus you should be able to edit each template.

New Photoshop has ability to work with curves now (like Illustrator) - I have been waiting for this future many years …

Also saving files on the background is a nice future.

Canvas has been doing this since the '90s... It offered a true integration of most Adobe Suite functions in the same app (bitmap/vector/DTP/web design/PDF output).

It's a fantastic way to work and no developer including Adobe seems to be willing to go all the way in this direction. In PSCS6 you seem to be able to draw and plop down various shapes but can't point-edit them as with IL and Canvas. But it's headed in the right direction.

The bad news is, the last Mac version of Canvas was released in 2005 (I still use it along with PS for creating my ezine and web graphics). The Windows version is still available but rarely updated.

I used to do a free ezine focusing specifically on Canvas before switching to a more popular Photoshop/plug-ins focus.

Re: Photoshop CS6 New Features

It looks interesting …

Another interesting software for vector editing is Inkscape.

I hope they will improve it in the next Photoshop

This is also interesting post about brushes in Photoshop:

True. In searching for a Canvas replacement, the consensus among users is there are plenty of DTP, image editing and vector apps, but very few cross the boundaries among genres (and those that do, only in a token way).

Consider how long we waited for anti aliased paths.

No one has mentioned if they've improved 32 bit mode or the funky way it calculates things at that bit depth. Okay... must download beta..

Re: Photoshop CS6 New Features

Good point. It doesn't look like they have improved anything in 32 bit mode. They were too busy changing the interface again and creating too many icons.

Bleck. I'd just like to see it at least brought up to par with after effects. Photoshop has been stuck in a somewhat archaic form in certain areas. The problem is that when they let these things get behind, bringing them up to date requires a lot more work. I haven't seen the new one though. They may have improved a lot of stuff under the hood. I'm not sure what motivates their decisions on what changes and what stays the same. 32 bit linear workflows are used in a few areas though, and photoshop really doesn't support them well.

Re: Photoshop CS6 New Features

I think the small developers (Pixelmator, GraphicConverter and such) have a better chance of delivering a product customers really want. More nimble, less red tape. On the other hand, they have less $$ for R&D and programmers and sometimes get stuck emulating rather than innovating.

Re: Photoshop CS6 New Features

Photoshop is only professional software for photographers on the market. Adobe created Lightroom for masses so I would expect they will let Photoshop to deal with really professional tasks. You had the possibility to change colours of your interface in previous versions too. Why to waste money (our money) and time for such a useless future? (I mean those four buttons). They even advertised they have spend their time on this future and icons???

I would say that Photoshop isn't a software for masses anymore (because of Lightroom) and Adobe should release this and keep Photoshop for professionals. And professionals want to see professional futures (I am not talking about content aware things - personally, I don't use them).

- Better brushes
- Better 32 bit mode
- Better shapes (vectors)

And they should STOP changing the interface. We need to work - not to spend our time looking for the new position of some button or menu …

I like this version (cs6) but should't it be obvious that new version should work faster and better then the previous one?
