Using the Tool Box in Editing and Enhancing Raw Images


Hello Janet!

If you’re talking about Adobe Photoshop you have to remember that from CS2 jumping to upgrade for CS6 is a big leap. You have to adjust entirely with your system specs.

Here are the system requirements for Photoshop CS6.

1. You need to have Intel Pentium 4 or higher and or AMD Athlon 64 processor.

2. Microsoft Windows XP SP3, Windows 7 with Service Pack 1, you also need Adobe Creative Suited 5.5 and Windows 8.

3. You need to have a 1 GB of RAM.

4. 1 GB of available hard-disk space for installation.

5. Video Card ranging 1024 x 768 display with 16-bit color and 512 MB

6. OpenGL 2.0–capable system.

7. DVD-ROM drive

Please be reminded that adding more speed to your processor, memory and graphics card will improve your software capabilities. Thus meeting the minimum requirements will give you tendencies to have lags.
