Adobe Ends New Camera Support for Photoshop CS6

More than three years after Photoshop CS6 was released in May, 2012, Adobe has announced that it will no longer update the Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) plugin incorporated in CS6 with support for new cameras or new lens profiles. The ACR update released today, 9.1.1, will be the last one. Implications for Photoshop CS 6 Users Who Also Use Lightroom 6/CC As of the next update to Lightroom (presumably 6.2), your Photoshop ACR plugin will no longer be as up-to-date as Lightroom. Therefore, you’ll get the following dialog when you choose to edit a raw image in Photoshop (right-click>Edit in…>Photoshop CS6): From this dialog, choose to render the image using Lightroom – Lightroom will create the PSD or TIFF file and hand it off to Photoshop, bypassing the now […more]

New Photoshop CC Now Available from Adobe

Adobe’s new version of Photoshop, Photoshop CC, is now  available for download through its Creative Cloud subscription service. New features for photographers include a camera-shake-reduction filter, and improved Smart Sharpen and upsampling algorithms. Adobe announced last month that new versions of Photoshop and other Creative Suite software would only be available via a Creative Cloud subscription. This  provoked an outcry amongst some pro and amateur photographers who use only Lightroom and Photoshop, and for whom even a single-product Cloud subscription to Photoshop would be a very large price increase.  There was also substantial criticism of the Creative Cloud’s “software-rental” model, where once you stop subscribing, you lose access to the software.
