Sure it's not cheap, and it is expensive. But with the right computer and once you learn your way around it there isn't anything you can't do. From repairing and colorizing old photos to turning your latest failures into a work of art. You can start with the cheaper Photoshop Elements (as I did) and learn the basics and then with that foundation move on to this master program. There are so many plug-ins and additional fonts and helpful online tutorials and a forum where others can help you learn things you never thought possible. The sky is the limit and is reachable to each of us according to how far we want our creativity to take us. Like Grandma Moses, you can still teach an old dog new tricks. You are never to old to learn something new.

I use DXO Optics for basic corrections, and for initial conversion to DNG from my D7100. DXO is outstanding (and without peer, IMO) for basic corrections. CS6 is quite good for its advanced image processing capabilities, such as content aware. I believe that there will be a maintenance release of CS6 coming soon, as the interface to add-ons was poorly done -- Filter Forge cannot be used with CS6 -- CS6 crashes and leaves my Win-7 computer requiring a reboot, so I must use FF as a stand alone app.

    Comments about Adobe Photoshop CS6 for Windows (DVD-ROM):

    I am giving CS6 5 stars because I KNOW it will be worth my time and efforts to experiment with the new features...I just can't commit the proper time at the moment since I am up to my neck in the 2014 wedding season. (I will play and learn this Winter, for certain.) This program is a MONSTER, and there IS a learning curve. If you give yourself time (and patience), you will definitely be rewarded!

            My wife and I photograph dogs arriving at our local no-kill shelter and prepare the pictures for various media publications. We upgraded from CS4 to CS6 and LOVE it! I'd give it a 5 star if we knew all the incredible things CS6 will do for us!

                Comments about Adobe Photoshop CS6 for Windows (DVD-ROM):

                As an imaging professional, I find it very disappointing and unacceptable that Adobe has removed a key feature like Picture Package. It's also unacceptable that neither of my Epson scanners are recognized by CS6. After more than an hour on the phone with Adobe, the scanners are still not recognized or useable with CS6. "Professional program"? I don't think so.

                  I once had CS2 I thought this would be all that I would ever need. Seeing what CS6 can do was amazing.I personally think seeing the new cc version I would not want to do mothly rentals on this software. This may be the best and last version available on disc. Happy to get CS6

                    I use Photoshop daily, for tasks ranging from image editing to presentation boards and marketing materials. With the onset of Photoshop CC, I needed to get the last non-subscription based edition before it was extinct. CS6 does not disappoint, it works on Windows 7 and continues support of Adobe Bridge.

                              I've only gotten started, it's a relatively complex software so I am currently in the learning curve.

                              I'm very acquainted with the capability of the software, but it takes some time get full results.

                                As a photographer, the new Photo shop 6(CS6)has all the tools I need. It's easier to use than previous versions as some tools are consolidated and I love the new display color.

                                  I bought this to edit my photos. I bought CS6 to replace my Photoshop elements 10. there is so much more I can do with this but there is still a lot to learn. I'm looking forward to finding the power this program has. I did watch a lot of tutorials on CS6 before purchasing it which helped a lot.

                                          Bought CS6 after using Photoshop Elements for a number of years and couldn't be happier. There is a steep learning curve but totally worthwhile.
