4.0 out of 5 stars The de facto standard August 22, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
If you're serious about production and design for the web, then the Adobe products are pretty much where you can expect to spend your life. Adobe CS6 Design and Web Premium is a good balance of capabilities for the price, including Dreamweaver, PhotoShop, Illustrator, Acrobat, Flash, InDesign and more. Thanks to Amazon's absolutely fantastic pricing, I was able to get off the month-by-month rental Adobe offers, and take ownership of my own copy.

The software is quite large and needs a fairly heavy-duty machine to work best. My 27" iMac with a 3.4Ghz quad-core i7 processor, 1TB solid-state drive and 16GB of memory is blindingly fast with most apps, but only "okay" with some of the more complex PhotoShop filters. Some of the blur and sharpen algorithms can take 15-20 seconds on my system. I do a lot of serious photography, and driving my Epson R3000 with PhotoShop seems to produce (very) slightly better looking prints than any other app I've used, including older versions of PhotoShop - I guess this makes all the resources worth it.

I tend to use PhotoShop and Dreamweaver more than the other apps, and the CS6 upgrade was a major difference for me and definitely worth the upgrade from CS5. I admit to having a bit of a "love/hate" relationship with PhotoShop - I know what it can do, but I tend to spend way too much time searching for just the right tool and outcome I want. No different from previous versions of PhotoShop, for all the power of these products, Adobe certainly could use a few lessons in user-experience design.

There's a whole community of add-on apps for PhotoShop, and I'm happy to report that most of the ones I tried, especially the Nik Software ones, worked flawlessly with CS6.

I upgraded from Adobe CS5.5 Standard to the new Adobe CS6 Design and Web Premium. The main reason being was that I was emailed a coupon to save A LOT of money from Amazon and thus I felt the need to jump in and upgrade as I didn't have Flash from CS5.5. I mainly use Photoshop and Illustrator and the entire interface has changed from the light gray to mainly blacks. Content Aware Patch is an amazing addition to Photoshop CS6 as it makes working with photos much easier. I do not have to struggle with clone stamp and go back and forth. Otherwise, there would be more and more manual work and more time consumed. Only 1 DVD is included with the product number and seal on the outside shrink wrap packaging. Inside, you will find the DVD in a regular paper sleeve with the serial number, which you need to activate your copy of the software. It takes a while to install, but was so worth it especially for the price paid cheaper than the upgrade version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the Content Aware Patch on Photoshop!! August 11, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
Haven't had this long enough to really delve into all the new features but I was able to play around with the touted new Content Aware Patch in Photoshop. This patch is amazing! So simple to use and very easy. It blows my mind how much manual work Photoshop has cut out of the equation. Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The required CS6 December 21, 2013
Platform for Display:Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
Advertising & graphic design is what I do for a living and Adobe products are the standard for my job. Integration between Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Dreamweaver makes my work life happen. Got CS6 before all of us were relegated to the Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, but when my customers upgrade so will I need to.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST but a Couple More Installs Would Be Excellent November 17, 2013
Platform for Display:Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
Yes, it costs a small fortune but when you are ready for the BEST take the plunge. The only downside is that it only installs on two computers, which is unrealistic in this day when the average person has more than that. The upside is that you can deactivate it from one machine and activate it on another rather effortlessly.
