Adobe Photoshop has been the world’s top computer program for editing and customizing images for more than 20 years. Adobe Photoshop has been introduced since 1990. Adobe Photoshop CS6 is newest version of Adobe Photoshop 13; earlier Adobe changed the name to CS, “Creative Suite,” back at version 8 to make it seem bright and new. Adobe Photoshop CS6, the latest version of the cornerstone of the company’s Creative Suite of applications, borrows a little magic from its suitemate Premiere Pro. Of course, Photoshop CS6 adds a little magic of its own in this significant upgrade.

Adobe Photoshop is a raster graphics editor developed and published by Adobe Systems for Windows and OS X. It can edit and compose raster images in multiple layers and supports masks, alpha compositing and several color models including RGB, CMYK, Lab color space (with capital L), spot color and duotone. Photoshop has vast support for graphic file formats but also uses its own PSD and PSB file formats which support all the aforementioned features. In addition to raster graphics, it has limited abilities to edit or render text, vector graphics (especially through clipping path), 3D graphics and video. Photoshop’s feature set can be expanded by Photoshop plug-ins, programs developed and distributed independently of Photoshop that can run inside it and offer new or enhanced features. Photoshop CS6 were also distributed in two different editions: Standard and Extended.

Adobe Photoshop CS6 is the latest version of adobe creative suite. Adobe Photoshop have GPU acceleration only for few versions, but Adobe Photoshop CS6 improved on that with a latest Mercury Graphics Engine. In Photoshop CS6 many tools are GPU-accelerated including some filters that substantially updated cropping tool and 3D functions in Photoshop CS6 Extended. It lets you open and work with larger files and larger brushes and according to Adobe; it “helps you navigate documents and your workspace more fluidly.” Adobe photoshop CS6 have much faster performance with many useful editing enhancements functionality.

Adobe Photoshop CS6 makes maximum uses of computer’s Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), which provides excellent acceleration in many areas. Adobe CS6 performance depends on your computer processor and graphics card; although CS6 will run on Windows XP/Mac OS X 10.6 with just 1 Gb RAM, you do need a hardware-accelerated OpenGL graphics card to get the most out of it.

Photoshop has had some sort of GPU acceleration for at least a few versions, but Photoshop CS6 improves on that with a new Mercury Graphics Engine, in similar fashion to Adobe Premiere Pro CS6′s Mercury Playback Engine, which is responsible for that video editing application’s astounding performance. In Photoshop CS6, several tools are GPU-accelerated, including some filters, the substantially updated cropping tool, and 3D functions in Photoshop CS6 Extended. It lets you open and work with larger files and larger brushes, and, according to Adobe, it “helps you navigate documents and your workspace more fluidly.”
