Photoshop CS6 is going to rock

I’m just having a play with the new beta version of Photoshop CS6.
I gotta say it will be a must have upgrade for me.
The content aware tool was introduced in CS5 and worked beautifully, however sometimes it also completely stuffed up, because the user had no control over it.

They finally introduced user control of content aware fill, so it has become much more usable now.
There are a few other things I very much look forward to using and that is the tilt/shift filter.
I just love the miniature effect that it can create but it’s a very expensive lens. Being able to now create it in Photoshop is going to be a lot of fun.

Here is a Sneak Peak video of what you can expect.
