[UPDATE – Also see our new MAX 2017 Ticket Giveaway!]

There’s no doubt that Creative Suite 6 will be out sometime later this year… We have a pretty good sense of when, but we’d like to get a leg up on the release and give out a brand new boxed copy of Adobe’s forthcoming top-of-the-line CS6 suite to our amazing readers who have helped build our site to what it is today…

Adobe CS6 Creative Suite Master Collection - Free!

Yes, that’s right, this is it: the big enchilada, the numero uno, the biggest of the best Adobe premium suites – it’s CS6 Master Collection, containing nearly every great application that Adobe makes!  It includes Photoshop Extended, Dreamweaver, Acrobat Pro, InDesign, Illus­trator, After Effects, Premiere Pro, and many more – see all the applications it will likely contain when released.

We’ve given away a lot of software over the years, but this prize is our largest ever…  And it’s not an upgrade or an education version – this is the shrinkwrapped, full commercial English release of CS6, which has been generously furnished by Adobe.  Master Collection currently sells for $2,599 / €2,899 / £2,303 – and collectively the 15+ major programs within are worth $7,587 if purchased separately.

So what new features will be in CS6, compared to CS5.5?  Well, we have a good sense of Photoshop CS6 already through the free beta release download…  For the other products, Adobe’s CEO dropped some hints recently, in addition to nearly a dozen sneak peek videos, plus the inside scoop on the CS6 video products.

How to get it?  Well, it’s easy to enter.  The contest is open to residents of North America, U.K., Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa – and all you need to do for a chance to win is one (or more) of the following:

February 16th, 2012 4 comments

[UPDATE – Also see our new MAX 2017 Ticket Giveaway!]

Be the Next Photoshop Evangelist and Win CS5.5 plus a Free Trip

If you like Photoshop and want a free paid trip to Photoshop World plus a CS5.5 suite, check out Adobe’s Next Photoshop Evangelist contest…  All you have to do is create and upload a 1-2 minute video demonstrating your favorite “Hidden Gem” in Photoshop CS5.

What’s a hidden gem? Essentially, it’s just a lesser-known feature or workflow of the product that you find valuable – perhaps using a function or tool in a way that Adobe didn’t imagine… For some great examples, check out this helpful series of Photoshop Hidden Gems that Adobe produced.

Submit your video here »

The top 5 videos will be selected and voted on, with the winner receiving a $4,000-$6,000 prize package including a trip to the PSW Conference either in Washington, D.C. this spring, or in Las Vegas this fall – plus a full copy of CS5.5 Design Standard. The trip includes roundtrip airfare, lodging, event admission, and spending money – plus meeting Adobe’s Photoshop Product Team personally and the opportunity to demonstrate your hidden gem live at the show. Four runners-up will get a free $1,000 copy of Photoshop CS5 Extended.

[UPDATE – Also see our new MAX 2017 Ticket Giveaway!]

We're giving away two of the Photoshop family!

We’ve given away a lot of products over the past couple years, but haven’t yet offered Adobe Lightroom…  So here, now, we’re giving away Adobe Lightroom 3 (value US$300) with a new camera bag!  Second prize is the Photoshop & Premiere Elements 10 Bundle (US$150), and for third place we have an Adobe-branded prize pack with T-shirt, pen, lanyard, and other surprises.

Actually, all three winners will receive one of those prize packs, so much the better. The free copy of Lightroom is graciously sponsored by Adobe, and should do nicely until Lightroom 4 is released. Photoshop and Premiere Elements 10 are brand new, out five weeks ago.

The goal of the contest is to learn from our readers worldwide:
What would you like to see in the next release of your favorite Adobe product?

It could be any one – CS6 (any application), Lightroom 4, Acrobat 11, Photoshop Elements 11, and the rest.  What do you hope for, want Adobe to add/do/change, what’s on your wishlist?
Just share it in a comment below and/or on Facebook, and you’re entered.  Please be sure to include the name of the future product you’re talking about (for example, “In CS6 I’d like …”).

To double your power and effectiveness, then copy and paste the same comment into Adobe’s Official Feature Request form to let them know directly.  Here’s your chance to make your voice heard, and win some nice products doing it.

[UPDATE – Also see our new MAX 2017 Ticket Giveaway!]

September’s here!  Labor Day, back to school, fall begins…  September also usually means the next release of Photoshop Elements – now version 10 – should be coming out soon…

Now, we can’t say yet what new features will be in PSE 10, but – true to form – we can start giving it away…

So as soon as it’s available, we’ll be shipping out five shiny new boxes for free – and one could easily be yours through the three ways to enter below.

Get Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 Now

Photoshop Elements is already the #1-selling consumer photo-editing software* out there, and this 10th edition is likely to inherit even more functionality from its big brother, Photoshop CS5 – which itself is slated to get a major upgrade to Photoshop CS6 next year.

If Adobe follows the same model of Elements 9, then PSE 10 would be available on both Windows and Mac (multi-platform) with the same capabilities – and work alongside any older release(s) of Elements you may have, with the ability to automatically import and convert your existing catalog.

This new giveaway is open to residents of North America, Europe, UK, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa – and all you need to do for a chance to win is the following three steps:
