Adobe Photoshop CS6 Beta Hits 500,000 Downloads

One week after the public beta launch of Photoshop CS6, Adobe today announced that the software has already hit 500,000 downloads.
We’ve been blown away by the response to the Photoshop CS6 beta. In less than one week of its release, we’ve seen over half a million downloads and counting!! Download it for free today!

It’s not often that we provide an advance preview of the next release of Photoshop and we’re grateful for all the support and buzz the beta has received. We’re glad you’re as excited as we are to see all of YOUR requests come to life.
Adobe has yet to announce final pricing for Photoshop CS6, but has indicated that it will launch sometime in the first half of this year.


Users of older Macs should note that Photoshop CS6 drops support for 32-bit Macs, leaving out systems utilizing Intel Core Solo or Core Duo processors. Intel Core 2 Duo processors and later offer 64-bit support required for Photoshop CS6.

Anyway Adobe is on its last leg.


Curious, who will replace them?

Adobe Photoshop isn't worth $100 let alone the (absurd) $600 price tag that it carries.


For people who don't make money from it I understand that. My software is paid off after my first month of work a year. Not a big deal.

can't believe it's CS6 already! seems so fast!

does anybody know anything about its anti-piracy measures, any news on that yet? I heard it was a new take on DRM.


Yes it's called "purchase it". :rolleyes:

----------



the UI color is a big issue for you?


Oh no I just like that I can make it darker like some of their video editing apps. It's a nice addition.

Have Adobe made any information about CS6 licencing available yet?
I'm interested to know if CS will start using a cross-platform licence like the Elements 10 apps

This is the first version of Photoshop that wowed me in a LOOONG time. I'll be buying it. I really like the 3D enhancements, VERY useful stuff (for me anyway).

Well, this is why I don't have a problem with people who DL this stuff off torrent sites. Adobe clearly makes plenty of $ off us Pro seats we buy to keep on keeping on. & if you're not using it professionally, then you weren't going to pay pro pricing for it anyway. People DLing a copy to play with & discover costs Adobe nothing, but ultimately this puts their product in the hands of hordes of new users, who hopefully use it, and by using it, learn it, adopt the workflow, and become a future paying customer. Many don't, but those don't cost Adobe anything.

Still, Autodesk and Adobe have to take the stance they do or no one would pay for it. ...so here we are. That's a big beta run. Half a million ticking time bombs. Adobe should allow people to make monthly payments (listed as $1 a day) to keep their installs after they expire. $$$$

Got in on a deal last month for CS 5.5 MC for 180 bucks so I'll probably upgrade the full suite when 6 comes out. I really wish they would include LR.

Nice speed improvements but was looking forward to playing with the content aware move feature. Tried it on a number of images and it did a really poor job.

That's what I used to think. They wouldn't buy it anyway so Adobe are not losing out.

Adobe ARE losing out though because these people, who don't really need the power of Photoshop, should be buying Elements instead. So Adobe are losing money on sales of Elements.
