Mercury graphics engine
See near-instant results when editing with key tools such as liquify, puppet warp, and crop. The mercury graphics engine delivers unprecedented responsiveness for a fluid feel as you work.
3D controls at your fingertips
Intuitively create 3D artwork with a vastly simplified user interface that eliminates the need for tools. Use in-context, on-canvas controls to manipulate cages for 3D extrusions, change scene and object orientation, and edit lights.
Reengineered design tools
Create superior designs faster. Get consistent formatting with type styles, use vector layers to apply strokes and add gradients to vector objects, easily create custom strokes and dashed lines, quickly search layers, and more.
Crop images faster and with greater precision using the nondestructive crop tool. Manipulate your images on canvas, and take advantage of the mercury graphics engine to see your adjustments happen live.
Reflections and draggable shadows
Quickly achieve 3D realism by adding and enhancing shadows and reflections on your ground plane. Drag a shadow to reposition the light source, and easily edit ground reflections, shadows, and other effects.
Keep on working even while saving the largest of Photoshop files in the background - a performance improvement that can help your productivity soar.
Let the auto-recovery option work behind the scenes to save your edits without interrupting your progress. A copy of your work is saved every 10 minutes and recovered in the event of an unexpected shutdown.
Easy alignment and distribution of 3D objects
Create rich 3D scenes in less time now that you can automatically align 3D objects to the vanishing point in your image and manipulate a group of 3D objects at one time using a multiselect option.
3D performance boost
Experience enhanced performance throughout your 3D workflows. View shadows and reflections in all editing modes; quickly render final work in Adobe RayTrace mode thanks to the mercury graphics engine and much more.
Intuitive video creation
Bring Photoshop editing power to your video footage. Easily enhance any clip using the full range of familiar Photoshop tools, and create entire videos using an intuitive set of video tools.
Preset migration and sharing
Easily migrate your presets, workspaces, preferences, and settings so you can experience Photoshop in the same way on all your computers, share your setup, and bring your customizations from past versions into Photoshop CS6.
Quickly create photographic blur effects using a simple interface with on-image controls. Create tilt-shift effects, blur everything and then sharpen one focal point, or vary the blurriness between multiple focal points. The mercury graphics engine delivers immediate results.
Quickly enhance your images with improved auto curves, levels, and brightness/contrast controls. Intelligence from thousands of hand-retouched images is built in to give you a better starting point for making adjustments.
Adaptive wide angle
Easily straighten objects that appear curved in panoramas or photos shot with fisheye or wide-angle lenses. On-canvas tools use the physical characteristics of individual lenses to automatically correct curvatures, and the mercury graphics engine gives you near-instant results.
Work with a fresh, elegant Photoshop interface featuring dark background options that make your images pop, and benefit from hundreds of design touches that create a smoother, more consistent editing experience.
Skin tone - aware selections and masking
Create better selections and masks with a option that isolates skin tones and faces in your photos, enabling you to easily adjust skin tones or, conversely, preserve them while you adjust the color of everything else.
Accurate 3D object merge
Accurately merge multiple 3D objects in a single scene so they can interact with the same lighting and cameras.
Easily view your 3D artwork from multiple angles while editing.
3D stereo viewing and printing
Easily import common stereo formats, such as JPS and MPO, into the 3D pipeline, and make simple adjustments to set depth and range. View a stereo image on stereo monitors or TVs, or print it as a lenticular 3 D image.
Adobe Flash Professional 3D export
Easily export 3D artwork in Adobe Flash Professional 3D format for viewing in web browsers. Also export 3D artwork assets for use in Adobe Flash Builder software.
3D sketch and cartoon presets
Click once to give your 3D objects the look of sketches or cartoons, and automatically create sketch presets by creating any brush stroke.
