Photoshop and Illustrator CS6 updated with Retina display support, more Creative Cloud features

As the rumors suggested, today Adobe announced HiDPI (Retina) displays support for Photoshop CS6 and Illustrator CS6. There are also new Photoshop CS6 capabilities available to Creative Cloud members:

  • Immediate support for HiDPI (Retina) displays for Apple MacBook Pro. This feature was also made available to perpetual license customers as a free update.
  • Smart Object support for Blur Gallery and Liquify.
  • The ability to quickly export CSS code for text and objects, and import color swatches to easily design incredible websites.
  • New workflow timesavers including Crop tool refinements.
  • 3D enhancements including improved live (OpenGL) previews of shadow effects and additional control over illumination using 32-bit color picker to create glow effects.
  • Conditional Actions that automatically select the appropriate Action based on user-defined rules, giving users enhanced image processing speed.

The latest Photoshop 13.0.2 and Illustrator 16.0.3 updates for CS6 can now be downloaded from Adobe's website.

More information will be revealed during the Create Now Live event that will start later today.

Update - here are few videos demonstrating the new CS6 features:

  • What happened to the days when you could just plug a monitor in to the computer and it just worked if your video card was up to it? Everything’s just becoming overly complicated for no reason. Next thing you know, toilets will run on Linux… (anyone got something for core dumps, memory leaks and garbage collection?)

    Why was PS 13.1 released only for Creative Cloud customers but not regular buyers? What kind of bad joke is that?
