Great Program

I am a beginner when it comes to Photoshop, but I really like CS6 and how easy it is to use, once you learn a few of the basics.

    Comments about Adobe Photoshop CS6 for Mac:

    Adobe Photoshop CS6 was definitely worth the money. I am an amateur photographer and am constantly studying using this program and trying new tricks using my different lenses. Though there are tons and tons of features to learn and memorize, I have found it more useful than any other program or software that I have come across to date. For starters, I just YouTube different features from CS6 and video after video pops up with instructions on using CS6. Of course, there are DVD's and classes you can take, but I unfortunately don't have the time. Now I've only had the program for a few weeks and it has turned some subpar photos into great photos and great shots into masterpieces. Just my thought anyways. Definitely satisfied with all of the features available on here and if I had to do it again, I would definitely buy it again with no hesitations. If I had to share a minor negative, it would have to be navigating the menus. With all of the features, there will especially be a learning curve. Slightly frustrating, but since I expected it, it doesn't bother me all that much. I'm learning as I go. Honestly, I can't wait to see what happens when I master CS6. It's an awesome product. Oh, and by the way, a tablet truly does help when using this program. Using a mouse or a trackpad could be extremely difficult in tight editing situations.

      I received this software as a gift, and it is one of the best gifts I've received to really bring my photographs to the level of a professional. I am so excited I have the tools to make my photos look as good as possible. The new layout design is so streamlined and makes work go very smoothly.

        I have tried many other more inexpensive photo editing software programs, but never have found anything that is up to the Photoshop standards, with all of the options that can be used.

        If you are serious, you will eventually get to Photoshop -- If your smart, you will start there!

            State of the art photo editing. A little tough to learn at first. But wow! New content aware is amazing. Wish it was cheaper . Seems like Adobe has it somewhat overpriced if your not a student or educator.

                I use this product for business purposes. I updated my OS and it made my older Photoshop software obsolete (coudn't open the program). It pained me to have to purchase an entirely new software package, but the 30 day trial convinced me to make the investment. B&H delivered the package just in time before the trial version expired. I'm not a professional with Photoshop, but I've noticed some improvements with the ability to adjust layers and images with ease.

                      I just updated from CS4. What a difference! The layout is much more intuitive and even has visual continuity with Lightroom 4. The new features and tools are amazing, quick to learn and easy to work with.

                      Comments about Adobe Photoshop CS6 for Mac:

                      I debated for quite a while before chosing to buy Ps Cs6 because Lr4 gave me 99% of what I needed. However, I wanted to do panos and thought if I'm going to invest in pano software I might as well spend more and get Ps.

                      So, I've watched several hundred PS tutorials now and get the concept but, I have to tell you, working with PS is like going around your elbow to get...anywhere. I can see why Matt, Jarod and other pros are saying, "Only use Ps for things you absolutely can't do it Lr and then charge extra for it."

                      Having said that, Ps is extremely robust and I'm sure I'll find many uses for it over time. If you want to develop your own style with fx, this is the app for you.

                                  Photoshop CS6 for Mac was a great investment! If you're looking to upgrade your photoshop, this is the next step! It still contains all of the user friendly tools to take your photos to the next level. I like that the layout is still the same.

                                  GREAT BUY

                                    Photoshop is amazing! I am a beginner so I have a lot to learn! It seems difficult, but that is probably because there is so much you can do with it. Don't expect to be able to learn it overnight! It is professional software and it will take some time!
