New Features and Improvements in Photoshop CS6
Photoshop CS6 has a lot of people talking. As a matter of fact, I have been on my Facebook and have even come across people selling their copies of CS5, so they could upgrade to the new CS6. This version of Photoshop comes with a slew of both big and small improvements over CS5. However, some of these features don’t really make a difference to me and some people may not even notice them. Therefore, I am just going to talk about some of the main stuff that I have come across.

Layer searching is something that has become a whole lot easier in Photoshop CS6. Even if you have a document with thousands of layers, you should be able to find exactly what you are looking for. Gone are the days that you had to spend hours trying to find a particular layer in a large project. Now, you can search for layers with very specific credentials, so you will be able to find the exact layer you are looking for.
When it comes to pixel snapping, you are going to notice some huge improvements in Photoshop CS6. If you have worked with vector points in CS5, you are probably familiar with all of those sucky workflows that were required. Now, there are two main settings that can control everything. You have the ability to align edges, snap vector tools and transforms to pixel grids. You will be able to have some extremely crisp edges and won’t have any of those inner points being rounded.
Layer styles now have the ability to be applied to groups. There is so many benefits of this feature I do not even know where to start. I do know, however, that it will be awesome to be able to apply more layer styles to objects. In my opinion, this is a much more effective method over the whole Smart Objects technique.
There are many more features and improvements made to Photoshop CS6, so I would highly suggest that you check it out on your own to get the full effect. There’s so many improvements that I just can’t talk about them all in a single article. Plus, some things are just going to stand out more to certain people.
