Our buddies over at Pop Photo just posted their first impressions of the newest beta version of Photoshop, CS6. Looks like a pretty big update to CS5, both in front of and behind the scenes--it's got a healthy charcoal background, plus a lot of features that might make Photoshop less threatening to the beginner, like an improved auto mode, more work in content-aware tech, some basic drag-and-drop video editing capabilities, and some nice lens blur effects (like a tilt-shift simulation). And all of that comes with a healthy boost in speed. Read more about it at Pop Photo.
