For an integrated video chipset that comes with your Motherboard, HD 4000 is better than previous generations. But, compared to video cards from AMD or Nvidia (even the cheaper, entry level cards), HD 4000 leaves a lot to be desired.

It's going to be much slower, and more limited in the number of displays it can support at higher resolutions compared to very low cost dedicated video cards from Nvidia (not to mention that integrated video chipsets also eat up some of your memory; whereas dedicated cards have their own onboard memory).

for the photo editor, HD4000 is more than fast enough, and when you consider the price of 16G of memory these days (which is 6-8G of overkill), giving up a few hundred to a gig to the video services is a non issue as well.

The number of functions CS6 PS is accelerating via the supported video cards is still pretty scant, not enough to be a factor in the decision. I'm only using a V4900 for the 10bit color.
