Sneak Peek of Photoshop CS6

Exciting news! The new Photoshop CS6 is now available as a public beta, downloadable for free! Join Photoshop Product Manager Stephen Nielson as he walks us through the new features in the beta. Stick around for a demo of Photoshop Touch for iPad. Download CS6 beta here: adobe.ly/GECkqV

Photoshop CS6 is one of the biggest releases yet, and there is truly something for everyone. The team has been working hard on new features like Blur Gallery, new Content-Aware tools, the Mercury Graphics Engine, new and re-engineered design tools, and so much more!

We'll have pizza and drinks at 6:30, and the meeting will start at 7:00, in the Park Conference Room of Adobe Systems' East Tower, 345 Park Avenue, San Jose.

To park underneath the Adobe building, use the Almaden Avenue entrance, under the East Tower. If the security guard at the parking entrance asks for an Adobe contact, use Stephen Nielson's name.

See you there!

    Those who sign up should have seats, sitting on the floor is hard on old bones.
    The presentation was good, and I had not heard of PS Touch for my Ipad. Loaded it while we saw the demo, what Fun

    The meeting was very enjoyable and very informative. I hope that we will have more meetings to show us the new tools in Photoshop CS6 and have more time for Q/A. We would like to have another meeting to inform us about the new changes in CS6 with longer time.
    Thank you very much for the time and the invite.

    Great product and good speakers. At the risk of biting the had that fed me, I think sodas for giant bottles is hard to handle when trying to balance the pizza (thanks again) in my lap.

    I thought that the meeting was very well organized and informative. The presenter was very familiar with the program upgrades and explained them well.. Glad that they left questions to the end because so often in the past, there are too many questions that waste valuable time. Thanks: Kent Clemenco

    Great look at what is coming with CS6

    Sneak peek presentation was great.
    The pizza tasty; cold small bottled beverages would have been better than open cups.

    The PS Touch presentation seemed to reflect the speaker's jet lag.

    Most of the first hour of CS6 features was shown in online videos already, but it was good to see them firsthand. More info outside of the main new features would have been nice. Was too much time taken up by the "raise your hand" survey questions? That info was interesting, but it took away time from product demos. I am most looking forward to the revamped crop tool and improved auto tools. // The second hour focused on Photoshop Touch. It appears powerful for a tablet app, but mainly useful for casually editing photos in bed or while mobile. The guest speaker could have been better prepared, although he admitted he was running on little sleep and did not know if he would present. // The venue was packed! An overflow room was available, but I don't think many people used it. A kind soul brought in extra chairs for those left standing. Pizza My Heart was provided. Two copies of CS6 were given away, and most people walked away with a DVD containing tips and tutorials.

    I thoroughly enjoyed it & was happy to hear of the new features. I would have loved to have one more trageted to designers next time.

    CS6 ought to be a dynamite upgrade. Would of liked to hear more about what is new and less about Adobe Toucn, but it is always a privilege to attend meetings at the Adobe HQ

    Great Meeting / Looking forward to Photoshop 6!

    Excellent!!

    There is lots of useful stuff in CS6. I wish it were released now, but must live with the CS6 Suite being released later in 2012.

    April 11, 2012

  • Maurice G.

    Well organized and well presented

    April 11, 2012

  • John T.

    Great. Seeing the features and having him show them and talk about them and being able to ask members their thoughts was far better than an on-live canned video

    April 11, 2012

  • Kim M.

    Great info. Loved this meeting. Glad I came to it!

    The first hour was good, lots of good info. The Q&A session at the break was ridiculous. Those that were on break were talking so loudly that you couldn't hear the questions or the answers. Folks not asking questions need to leave the room, OR save the Q&A for later and go into more depth on the product info. The guest speaker was interesting, but I would have rather had more time for CS6 or PS Touch presentations.

    The beverage situation was poorly organized, it hasn't been so at prior events. Have everything ready to go at once please. And more water.

    April 11, 2012

  • Jan L.

    Superior, well put together presentations that were highly informative. Very knowledgeable presenters

    Excellent, Thanks for the invite. The project manager of CS6 gave an excellent presentation of all the key features of CS6, Wonderful, though he did not know when to stop and get a crowd applause :( , he should learn from Late. Steve Jobs

    I though it was a good intro to CS6, I would have liked a little bit more detail. Or less of an upsale on PS Touch

    Very well done Stephen.

  • Kathy K.

    As a designer, I would have loved to know more about the new stuff.
    Audience photo enthusiasts... mostly an older crowd. Why is this?
    Really what is going on with the target audience. The average age is about 60.
    Seems odd this kind of event doesn't attract a younger crowd. I would like a crowd that is a group of working professionals, not photo enthusiasts. Our concerns are very different!

    A big water dispenser with cups would have been awesome, I know folks wanted water, but please refrain from getting lots of bottles, paper cups and a cooler would be ideal.

    I am not feeling good so me and my other person will not be attending.

    Santosh, you can go into Adobe's parking garage in the East Tower. The security guard should check you in.

    April 10, 2012

  • Terri S.

    @Santosh, you can park underneath the Adobe building. Use the Almaden Avenue entrance, under the East Tower. If the security guard at the parking entrance asks for an Adobe contact, use Stephen Nielson's name.

  • Santosh A.

    Do you know where you can park ?

  • B. Jefferson Le B.

    Annie, I am coming with a friend from Santa Cruz. We could give you a ride back. Look for the guy with white hair and pale skin - that's me. ;-)

    I'm giving up my spot.. I've got classes thats also hard to miss.. so, good luck to the one who gets my spot.

    cheers!

    Actually "crashing" in hopes of someone else not showing up is immature to say the least, and it could easily lead to not enough space for the people who signed up early and arranged their schedules. Additionally, if an excess of people show up it is highly likely that these events will not be offered in the future.

    April 9, 2012

  • Christine C.

    I was going to ask the same thing. I would thonk there is no crime against "waiting" in the lobby to see who doesn't show. It's been my experience that many members of meetup groups sign up for everything "just in case" and nearly half or even more don''t show up!

    April 9, 2012

  • Jay N.

    An excellent suggestion! Organizers should implement it as early as possible.

    April 7, 2012

  • B. Jefferson Le B.

    As far as I know none of these meetings have been web cast. I suspect the users group does not have the resources for it and, to date, Adobe has not chosen to do so. I agree this is unfortunate for those of us who cannot always get to the meetings we'd like to attend. Perhaps this is the place to discuss the matter, but it remains to be seen if anyone in a position to know or to do anything about it will comment here. This is a new group on MeetUp and the potential here has yet to be explored.

    Again can we know if this meetup is going to be broadcasted online if we cannot make it to SJ?

    April 6, 2012

  • vicky

    Will it be broad - casted online at later time?
