Adobe has just announced some enhancements to Photoshop CS6 and to its Creative Cloud service whereby you don't have to buy Creative Suite outright, but pay monthly ongoing and also benefit from other related cloud services from Adobe.

New Photoshop CS6 capabilities available to Creative Cloud members, include:
Immediate support for HiDPI (Retina) displays for Apple MacBook Pro. This feature was also made available to perpetual license customers as a free update.
Smart Object support for Blur Gallery and Liquify.
The ability to quickly export CSS code for text and objects, and import colour swatches to easily design incredible websites.
New workflow timesavers including Crop tool refinements.
3D enhancements including improved live (OpenGL) previews of shadow effects and additional control over illumination using 32-bit colour picker to create glow effects.
Conditional Actions that automatically select the appropriate Action based on user-defined rules, giving users enhanced image processing speed.

My understanding is that these enhancements will also be made available to traditionally licensed users of Photoshop CS6 via a maintenance update.

You can tune in to the Adobe launch event online at 6PM GMT via:
