Now that summer is in full swing and most of us have some extra time on our hands, let's check out the new Adobe Photoshop CS6. The newest Photoshop delivers even more creative tools with blazingly fast performance boosts for creating superior designs and movies. My focus for this compilation of tutorials is specifically geared towards learning the new features. But before we begin with those tuts, I would like to first go over a few notable improvements.

 

More Content-Aware Features

Content-Aware was a big improvement for Photoshop CS5, and now it's gotten even better in CS6. In simple terms, Content-Aware Fill is a revolutionary tool that allows users to remove an element from an image while the missing space is automatically filled in to match the background. There were two significant additions for the Content-Aware family of technology, Content-Aware Patch and Content-Aware Move.
