Hey y'alls, I thought I should let everyone know I have just upgraded to Photoshop CS6. I haven't had time to completely explore it yet, but one thing that jumped out at me are the new airbrush options. Finally, PS has a decent airbrush! It has a nice stippled spray and there are new options for spray direction based on stylus tilt. And, finally, there is a nice wide spatter diameter. They work great. I have been trying to emulate these very effects for so long that I had given up, so they are a very welcome addition.
I'm not inclined to write a full review of CS6, but future brushes posted to this blog will probably require CS6 to work. Sorry to leave the non-adopters behind- I know there are more than a few of you- but I find if there is a reason to upgrade it's best to do it.
