Roland Karlsson: The content aware demo is not good. You see that the same rocks and water are duplicated. And the bigger rock is floating in the air. There was something supporting it behind the blue man.
It's important to realize that Photoshop is a product aimed at a wide audience of photographers/graphic designers. I'm a designer who values any tool that will help me quickly adapt an image for a particular use. As an example, let's say I have a great photo of a couple but it's cropped too tightly and I need more background. The content aware tool is a great way to quickly and easily add the additional image area I need. I agree for a fine art photographer and sometimes a designer too, there are more elegant ways to retouch a photo. On a deadline however it's a time saver.
JJMacks: CS6 will become usable when its many bugs are exterminated as is its not a program I will use.
I'm not picking on you or anyone else, but all the comments I hear about bugs makes me think that either you're trying to run a new piece of software on an aging machine or you're having problems with the software that you can't figure out. It's not a simple program to learn and after 10+ years I'm still running into challenges. I have a two step process when I run into problems. 1. I'll take advantage of Adobe's Help search and 2. If I'm really stuck, I'll post a question on Adobes web-based Forum - http://forums.adobe.com/community/photoshopJust like here at DPReview, there's a whole community of Photoshop people willing to help you.
I can't imagine being an engineer putting together a camera like this. These days, what feature to leave out is as important as what feature to put in.
Being a Photoshop/Camera Raw user, I tried an earlier version of Lightroom some time ago. I came away wondering why I would need, another application to manipulate my photographs. What am I missing?
My only complaint about Adobe's Camera Raw process is the lack of a "history panel" to back-away from a series of changes I may have made. (like in Photoshop) Does Lightroom have something like that?
