Adobe Photoshop CS6 Beta is Free (for now)

Photoshop CS6 Beta is now available. This means that until final release, you can download and use it for free. Check out our quick-install guide here to get started.

If you haven’t tried Photoshop CS6 yet, Adobe recently made the beta publicly available. You can download it and use it for free until just after the retail release scheduled sometime in 2012.

Download Photoshop CS6 Beta here. Careful, it’s 1.7 GB in size, so will take a while to download on slower connections.

The downloaded program files will be compressed in a .zip file. Just extract it and run Set-up.exe.

On the first installation screen, select Try, not Install. A new “feature” of Photoshop CS6 is requiring an Adobe account, so on the next screen you’ll be prompted to login.

By default in the install options it is set to Install BOTH 32-bit and 64-bit. Since you probably don’t need both, be sure to uncheck the 32-bit (bottom) version if you are running a 64-bit computer.

Once you click Install, it shouldn’t take long. The final installation splash screen will appear and you can start right up with the “trial’ although it’s really a Beta.
