Photoshop 6 has many new features that have made this good, solid program even better. The new color management setup, the expanded Layer Effects, and the new tool options bar that provides a quick and easy way to access tool options, are just a few of the new features and improvements on existing features that you will find in the new Photoshop.

Color Management

A color management system can solve problems that occur when various hardware devices and software packages treat color differently. Photoshop's color management controls are in the Color Settings dialog box under the Edit menu. This dialog box includes a list of predefined management settings for various publishing situations, including prepress output and Web output. Photoshop 6 supports document specific color, which means each open document keeps its own profile for controlling how the document previews and manages color on output. Photoshop no longer forces all open documents into the current working color space in order to preview color accurately.
