  1. The Background Save and Auto-Recovery feature is only for Photoshop, or is it included in all the new CS6 applications?

  2. Great program and looking forward to exploring all the new options, especially looking forward to using the new design tools.

  3. This looks truly awesome. I need to make a website to show off my greeting cards, used purely for fundraising for cancer research, Motability, ME, MS and MND research plus hospice support! So to have the quality of this suite would be wonderful.

    I use PSE on my MAC at present.

  4. Flash CS6 has been a huge disappointment. I’ve been using it for about a week and it’s crashed on me over 10 times a day, along with a multitude of display issues. CS6 makes CS5.5 look like stable software.

  5. Nicholas, I had that problem with CS5. It was a font conflict of some sort. I fixed it by turning off all but the system fonts and then added fonts slowly, as I worked on projects. One font was making the system crash.

    Hi Cat, thanks for the suggestion. I can experiment with my fonts, but I have had few issues with 5.5 and 5.0 on the same machine. It’s not a min spec issue, and I haven’t had issues like this with other Adobe products.

  7. @ Nicholas Bilyk Also, a font issue doesn’t explain all the display issues I have been having with Flash CS6. Things like buttons not being clickable, selection rectangles being invisible, panels not being able to resize. It’s been dozens of ear flicks any time I use the software. I have an NVidia Quadro 1000M, and as I said before, I can use Photoshop and CS5.5 without these kinds of problems.

    • Wow, that sounds really really strange Nicholas – have never heard of it, and can’t imagine what it might be… Have you tried Adobe Support/Forums?

      It also could be a Windows Registry issue, perhaps something didn’t install properly – so maybe uninstalling and reinstalling the program could help.

  8. I’m trying so hard to see why I should upgrade to PS CS6. Every one of these new options can be done in CS5. I am curious about the video features.

    • Hello Dallas, take a look at our detailed coverage for a more in-depth review:

      What’s New in Adobe Photoshop CS6 vs. CS5?

      Of course, except for the new video editing capabilities, most things that you can do in Photoshop CS6 you can also do with CS5… But you could make the same argument going all the way back to Photoshop 1.0! All things are possible with pixels, but it’s a question of effort – like Steven Wright’s old joke, “everywhere is walking distance if you have the time.”

      How much time will CS6 save you by performing operations faster, simpler, and more efficiently? How much do you value better performance, stability, and ease-of-use? What is your time worth?

      Customers who have used PS CS6 say they would have a hard time going back to CS5 – but it’s easy enough (and no charge) to just download and run the free CS6 trial and see for yourself.

  9. I am currently looking to upgrade my desktop so that I may purchase the Master Collection. I am running a system with an AMD processor. Will I be able to run all programs or do some REQUIRE an Intel processor?

  10. We have recently upgraded from CS5.5 to CS6. A feature that is troubling us is that when one opens a CS5 file (InDesign or Illlustrator files for instance) in CS6, edits the file and clicks File > Save, instead of saving the file immediately, it brings up the ‘Save As’ dialog, with a prior file location rather than the current file location. In order to save the file, the user must navigate back to the original file location, click OK, and answer to an overwrite prompt. We care nothing about preserving the file in the CS5 format, which is what I assume this behavior is trying to accomplish. We want to have File > Save save the document, overlaying the earlier version. How can I turn off this version preservation feature?

  11. I am using Premiere Pro CS6 and cannot find the CS4 menu item Clip/Audio Options/Transcribe to Text … I want to be able to transcribe audio files. Please help! Thank you!

  12. Hi,

    We have a Mac with CS6 and Avid, all works except Photoshop CS6 – it just keeps crashing, we are on Lion.

    Would Avid have an effect with CS6, thus cause this crash or does anyone know of another reason?

  13. Hello,

    I have recently taken over a marketing and graphic design role in a company. The women before me has not left Adobe account or registration details needed to switch over and update the CS5.5 software currently being used. Can you assist me in upgrading anyway?

    In addition, the iMac currently being used to run the CS is not internet accessible. Can I still upgrade to CS6 without need to convert to the cloud system? What are my options? Can you also include prices for those options?

    Thank you,
    Erin

  14. OK, thanks, that helps a lot.

    Where can I find product serial code or registration if this information has not be left by the previous owner?

    Is it stored within the software files somewhere?
