A Glimpse of Photoshop CS6: Darker UI, Perspective Crop, and Auto Save

Early beta versions of Photoshop CS6 (codenamed “Superstition”) have already made it into the hands of testers, and information about changes and new features is slowly starting to emerge. AppleInsider has published some screenshots of the new program, which apparently comes with a darker, Aperture-esque user interface. There’s a number of new features geared towards working with 3D, a mysterious new “Remix Tool” inside the healing brush pallet, and a “Perspective Crop” tool. There’s also new auto-save options that help you save your work automatically in the background.

At this point, it doesn’t seem like we’ll be seeing Image Deblurring appear in CS6. Adobe is rumored to be shooting for a CS6 launch around May 2012.

    That’s Photoshop Elements, son!

    You can already do perspective cropping by ticking a box in the top bar with the regular crop tool selected.

    how about removing the limit on images over 300,000 pixels high/wide

    I’d think Adobe would be going more for a Lightroom-esque look.

    They’d better make that dark interface optional, because I hate dark interfaces, like in lightroom. I would be seriously annoyed if PS6 would look like this.

    [irony]I would have been surprised if Adobe had been ready to implant Autosave in 2012…[/irony]

    Wow.  300k is good for a 83ft wide/long 300dpi image.  Is it intruding
    too much to ask what’s being done with images larger than that?  Just
    the dimension sounds intriguing.

    Thats looks a lot like Elements. If the CS6 looks like that, I wont be best pleased.

    gigapixel imagery, be it for art, science or industry. I’ve only ever been up to around 250k pixels wide myself but others have produced images much larger. Shows (currently) a scientific image with nearly 1.5 million pixels on the long edge, and another for art/interest at 800k

    I’m sure Adobe will include a “classic workspace” or something to that effect. Especially with all this online uproar.. I don’t think I could get used to it either.

    I’ll probably only get it so I can get ACR compatibility with the new camera I intend buying this year. Really don’t need new features, wouldn’t mind multithreading and a few tweaks to what’s already there though
