Adobe Photoshop is undoubtedly the most important software for graphic designers. As a matter of fact, it is almost the bread and butter for most of them.
While there are tons of other apps to get excited about in the realm of graphic and Web design (Adobe's suite dominates the market for a reason.
Photoshop CS5 was launched on April 12, 2010. In a video posted on its official Facebook page, the development team revealed the new technologies under development, including three dimensional brushes and warping tools.
In May 2011, Adobe Creative Suites 5.5 (CS5.5) were released which have new versions of some of the applications. However, the Photoshop that comes with them which is labeled version 12.1 is identical to the concurrently released update for Photoshop CS5, version 12.0.4, except for support for the new subscription pricing that was introduced with CS5.5.
Now, Adobe plans to launch the Photoshop CS6 very soon, and they have published a few sneak peek videos of what to expect out of the new version on Youtube.
We'll be sure to keep our eyes peeled for the next sneak peek as we get closer to the release of CS6 and Creative Cloud.
