The newest version of Adobe’s Creative Suite is out, and it turns out that it is a heftier upgrade than we have seen in the past few versions. In this episode, we talk about what’s new in Adobe CS6. Specifically we go over a lot of the new features that are available in Photoshop and Illustrator, as well as the brand new “creative cloud” and the new WYSIWYG web design program, Adobe Muse. So if you’re on the fence about whether or not you think you should make the upgrade to Adobe CS6, have a listen, and decide for yourself!

In addition to our CS6 discussion, we answer a listener question and offer some brand new tips in our ‘Do Yourself a Favor” segment.

    I have never bought an iMac. I do all I do on my MacBook Pro (with an external BIG monitor when I’m at the home office). All I can say is these little guys rule! Just bought a MBA for my wife and I’m kinda jealous, just saying :)

    Also… Bonus points for mention of placehold.it … Thanks!

      Nice, so which would you prefer if you only had to work on the laptop occasionally while out of town? Is the Pro worth lugging around?
      And are you the guy behind placehold.it? Its a really cool idea, I use it all the time in my psd web mockups!

    Hi, keep up the great podcast. I heard that Brandon has lost use of his 3d package. I have been using Cheetah3D which is much easier to use than most packages – he might want to check it out. (I am not affiliated with the package)

    • Wes McDowell says:

      Hey Tara, thanks, Ill let Brandon know about it!

    • Brandon says:

      Thanks Tara! I’ll look into it for sure. Was real bummed to find my 3d software was rendered obsolete when I upgraded My OS…
      Thanks!

    Copying a design or technique exactly has its place, I think, but one should never copy as their final product. But it can be good practice to try and copy something and just see how it goes.

    I know if I am trying to emulate a cool design or technique that I found online, I always tend to cut corners and find myself saying, “oh that’s good enough” – even though it’s not exact. And in the end it turns into something unique and far different from the original. Win-win!
