If you‚Äôre doing any¬≠thing at all cre¬≠at¬≠ive with your com¬≠puter, you‚Äôre likely aware of the excel¬≠lent suite of cre¬≠at¬≠ive tools from Adobe (coin¬≠cid¬≠ent¬≠ally called the Adobe Cre¬≠at¬≠ive Suite).

Well earli¬≠er today, Adobe announced a huge upgrade to the suite, Adobe Cre¬≠at¬≠ive Suite 6 ‚ÄĒ CS6 ‚ÄĒ which con¬≠tains a lot of new fea¬≠tures to all products with¬≠in the suite and is also designed to drive Adobe users to their new sub¬≠scrip¬≠tion-based (and also announced today) Cre¬≠at¬≠ive Cloud service

Aimed at the ser­i­ous cre­at­ive hob­bi­est or pro­fes­sion­al, Adobe Cre­at­ive Suite has long con­tained many of the industry-stand­ard cre­at­ive tools includ­ing Pho­toshop and Illustrator.

  • Con¬≠tent-Aware image retouch¬≠ing tools
    Retouch images with stun­ning res­ults in Pho­toshop Exten­ded. Use the Remix tool to move a selec­tion with auto-recom­pose and blend. Con­tent-Aware Patch lets you con­trol patch samples.
  • Flu¬≠id grid lay¬≠out for mobile devices
    Design and devel­op con­fid­ently for mobile devices with advanced tools in Dream­weaver CS6, includ­ing CSS3-based lay­outs that scale respons­ively to vir­tu­ally all screen sizes and form factors.
  • Glob¬≠al Per¬≠form¬≠ance Cache
    Cre¬≠ate more in less time with unpre¬≠ced¬≠en¬≠ted 64-bit Per¬≠form¬≠ance. This revolu¬≠tion ‚Äúunder the hood‚ÄĚ makes After Effects CS6 fast and respons¬≠ive by tak¬≠ing full advant¬≠age of the power in your computer‚Äôs hardware.
  • Extraordin¬≠ary image editing
    Use the Mix­er Brush and Bristle Tips in Pho­toshop CS6 Exten­ded to explore life­like, nat­ur­ally tex­tured paint­ing. Add dimen­sion to your imagery with 3D extru­sions using Adobe Repoussé tech­no­logy, and make pre­cise image selec­tions with Truer Edge technology.
  • Inter¬≠act¬≠ive doc¬≠u¬≠ments and presentations
    Cre­ate mem­or­able doc­u­ments and present­a­tions with inter­activ­ity, motion, sound, and video in InDes­ign CS6. Enhance lay­outs with rich media using motion pre­sets and sup­port for FLV and MP3 audio file import to engage your audiences.

As with pre¬≠vi¬≠ous CS releases, Adobe has bundled tools into vari¬≠ous con¬≠fig¬≠ur¬≠a¬≠tions and pri¬≠cing. Accord¬≠ing to Adobe‚Äôs news release, CS6 and Cre¬≠at¬≠ive Cloud will be avail¬≠able with¬≠in 30 days ‚ÄĒ we‚Äôll update this post when we have pre¬≠cise details on their arrival and pri¬≠cing at Future Shop.
