Note: Photoshop CS6 Portable Download 2017 and Adobe Photoshop CS6 trial is currently only available with Adobe’s download assistant (an installer and download manager).
If you’ve used pretty much any version of Adobe Photoshop before, you won’t have any trouble getting around in this CS5 version, especially if you’ve used CS4 before. The same interface and design in Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended is used as it was in the earlier iteration of the Adobe services with CS4.
Photoshop CS5 has some surprises instore for users even familiar with CS4 including wet brushes, content-aware healling brushes, a smart selection tool and content-aware background filling.
As with previous versions of Adobe Photoshop, usage is streamlined and when you have an idea of what you’re doing, CS5 improves on the already minimalist design of Adobe Photoshop CS4.
System Resource usage on CS5 is extremely well improved with their support of 64-bit operating systems. Though your system might be bogged down by having multiple windows open and especially working with a ton of layers, this version does improve on what CS4, CS3 and before that stumbled on.
With the menus have been changed slightly with CS5, it didn’t take very long for us to get used to the new arrangements (which were actually minimal). Thankfully, keyboard shortcuts remain traditional to older versions. If you haven’t used Photoshop before or you are not a seasoned user, we highly recommend getting used to some of the keyboard shortcuts as this can shave a load of time off of whatever task you’re working on.
