Work with lightning-fast creativity in Photoshop and Illustrator

Astonishing performance in Photoshop
Experience blazing-fast interactions when editing with key tools such as Crop, Transform, Liquify, and Puppet Warp. The Adobe Mercury Graphics Engine delivers unprecedented speed and responsiveness for a fluid feel as you work.*
Faster design tasks in Photoshop
Finesse details quickly with new and reengineered tools. Apply type styles, use vector layers to apply strokes and add gradients to vector objects, create custom strokes and dashed lines, quickly search layers, and more.
Adobe Mercury Performance System in Illustrator
Work blazingly fast — even with processing-intensive effects such as blurs, glows, and drop shadows that used to slow you down. Access all the RAM on your system thanks to native 64-bit support on both Mac OS and Windows.
Easy pattern creation in Illustrator
Easily create seamlessly tiled vector patterns. Experiment freely with repeating patterns that can be edited at any time.
Image Trace in Illustrator
Convert raster images to editable vectors with a completely new tracing engine. Get clean lines, accurate fitting, and reliable results without dealing with complex controls.
Gradients on strokes in Illustrator
Apply gradients to your strokes — along the length, across the width, or within the stroke itself — all with complete control over gradient placement and opacity.
Blur Gallery in Photoshop
Quickly create photographic blur effects using a simple interface with on-image controls. Create tilt-shift effects, blur everything and then sharpen one focal point, or vary the blurriness between multiple focal points.
Realistic painting effects in Photoshop
Paint with lifelike brushstrokes to create expressive images. Blend a photo's colors, use bristle properties such as shape, length, and stiffness, or define multiple colors on a single brush and blend them into your canvas.
Perspective drawing in Illustrator
Draw shapes in accurate 1-, 2-, or 3-point linear perspective to create the look of realistic depth and distance.
Puppet Warp in Photoshop
Precisely warp or stretch graphics, text, or image elements to create unique new looks for your designs.
Create and manage multiple layouts from one set of content in InDesign
Swiftly repurpose your content in Adobe InDesign® CS6 into layouts of different sizes and aspect ratios, suitable for print and a wide range of digital displays, from smartphone to tablet to computer desktop.
Alternate Layout in InDesign
Create and design alternate layouts that reposition content and synchronize text for other page sizes, orientations, or devices within the same document and without losing control.
Liquid Layout in InDesign
Apply liquid page rules to automatically adapt content when you create an alternate layout with a different size or orientation in InDesign.
Content Collector tools in InDesign
Quickly copy groups of content from one layout to another. Select desired text and objects in one layout, and place them in the new layout in the order you want them to appear.
Content linking across InDesign documents
Link content that appears in multiple InDesign documents so that changes made to parent text or objects are applied automatically to all linked children objects. Save time and avoid hassles when making last-minute changes.
Produce video, apps, and more without learning new software
Use familiar tools to easily apply your creative expression to an expanded world of design applications.
Tablet publications in InDesign
Use InDesign to create media-rich publications for iPad and other tablet devices. Add interactive elements such as pan and zoom, slide shows, audio, and video. Upload to Adobe Digital Publishing Suite† for distribution.
Video editing in Photoshop
Edit video in Photoshop to include in your digital publishing projects. Quickly combine clips and stills using transitions, audio, and effects, such as pan and zoom.
