Photoshop cs6 and macbook pro.

do you need a dedicated graphics card to run this or can it run smoothly on computers with a shared with the memory (macbook pro 15-inch vs macbook pro 13-inch)?
thanks.

thanks for the reply. however, the SSD gave me pause...
instead of the 13-inch MBP, should I rather get the 13-inch MBA?
The reason I am not considering the MBA is because of the small capacity (yes, i find the 256GB small and I don't want to do a DIY to replace the SSD in it).
right now, i am using my old MBP with a firewire 800 external hdd as my scratch space. i would have liked to get the MBA to expand my capacity but i feel USB 2 is not fast enough and the mini-display port peripherals are not yet common and still very expensive...
thanks again for the reply.

    I installed Adobe Photoshop CS6 on MacBook Pro, OS 10.7.5. Now my DVD player will not work. Any ideas?

    Problem solved. Yes, it was a coincidence. The problem had to do with my DVD preferences, not the Adobe installation. Thanks for your reply.

  • Photoshop CS6 on MacBook Pro

    Ok, so i downloaded the trial version of Photoshop CS6 on my MacBook using the Adobe Download Assistant. My net speed is really slow (30 kb/s) so it took a while. Now the programme is 'Extractiong files' and also says "this may take a while."
    the extraction has been going on for 2-3 hours now. is something wrong?
    Also, i can see a file named 'Photoshop_13_LS16.dmg' (size: 774.1 MB) on the MacBook. but when i click on it, it gives me a message saying that the disk image couldnt be opened (reason: illegal seek)
    Should i wait more?
    (i have OSX Lion. the MacBook Pro is a 13" mid-2012 base model)
    Also, i am using FileVault2.

    No there is no ned to wait any longer.  The download apparently was not successful and the reason you are receiving this error is because it is incomplete.  You can either cancel the download and try again or initiate a direct download by following the steps listed at http://forums.adobe.com/thread/981369.

  • Spacebar not moving marquee selection on photoshop cs6 on macbook pro.  Have not found any workable answers on adobe forums.

    On my MACbook pro retina display, OS X, I'm having a problem when running PHOTOSHOP CS6 extended where the spacebar doesn't move the selection of the marquee tool.  I've deleted the preferences file and also reset tool(all) but to no avail.  I've also searched every photoshop forum and searched on the web for solutions to this issue.  No help found!  Very frustrating.  Is there a solution to this issue?  If so, I certainly would appreciate knowing what it is.
    Thank you,
    frustrated PS user

    I don't know what to say. I see the same behavior on both my Mac and Windows editions of Photoshop.
    I select the Marquee Tool, draw out my Marquee. If I need to move it, clicking and dragging inside the marquee using my Trackpad ddoes the trick.
    If I want to resize the Marquee, Ctrl or left-clicking and choosing "Transform" allows me to resize it.
    The tool above the Marquee is the Move Tool, but I don't see to need it for that.
    I see the same behavior down to CS6. I certainly would like to know Spacebar does not work like that for me.

  • Premiere Pro CS6 and MacBook Pro Retina : Painfully slow exports, very long renders

    Hello All,
    This question seems to have been posted before..
    I came from Windows land and have used Premiere since '97..
    "Let's try a super spec Macbook and have a mobile editing suite.. Great!"
    I generally work with DSLR footage, H264 codec and .wav files.
    Imports and scrubbing is great, applying effects starts it slowing down and I'll adjust playback to 1/2 or 1/4 resolution.
    And that's just on one layer of video..
    Now, when it comes to exporting in general, a 50 second clip takes over 30 minutes to render.
    Very frustrating..
    I mainly export using the existing presets for YoutubeHD and VimeoHD.
    Can't get my head around why it takes so long and I am hoping that perhaps a re-install or a fundamental preference setting will solve it.
    In my preferences, I've allocated 11GB of memory to Adobe Production Suite applications and I rarely run 2 at a time.
    Scratch disks are set to project folders, on a 4GB RAID1 drive connected via Thunderbolt protocol
    Tech specs :
    Processor  - 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7
    Memory - 16GB 1600Mhz DDR3
    Graphics -   NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB
    Storage - SSD 500GB
    OS - OS X, v10.8.3
    I look forward to hearing back from you and thank you in advance

    Well, I've run a few tests, and learned something new.
    CS6 on my MacBook Pro has three acceleration modes now: Software, Hardware (OpenCL) and Hardware (CUDA).
    I've run software only... not so great. Then I ran Hardware Open CL, and it "acts" like CUDA did on my Mac Pro with GTX 285... bars that were red turned yellow, and some things ran without rendering! I was pretty surprised by this, as I have only 512MB VRAM, not 1GB VRAM on the 650M.
    This is only my not-very-serious edit-on-the-road system, so I didn't spec it out to be a monster editing laptop, but I'm extremely pleased by how well it runs with CS6. I have two very nice, new SSDs inside; one for OS X/apps, and the other for media, as well as 16GB RAM. Each SSD runs at 500MB/sec +/- whether read or write, despite the second SSD being in the space where the optical drive was.
    It's too bad there's not just a *wee bit* more space where the optical drive was... or I'd try to stuff THREE SSDs inside, and RAID two of them for media.
    So far, I'm really pleased with how well it works with only 512MB VRAM, which was the question I had wanted answered.

  • Does anyone know how to select multiple files in photoshop cs6 on macbook pro lion

    I'm new to Mac operating system. Can anyone tell me how to select multiple images in cs6 photoshop? Without having to hold down a shift or cmd key and clicking on each one.

    I assume you are using the Shape tool to draw your hexagons. After you drag out the shape, use the Transform controls to tweak the size, so that the width is evenly divisible by 4, and the height is an even number. If you wand a gap between shapes, include that in your adjustments. Make a note of the new width and height.
    Once the scaling is committed and the shape is selected, Control+Alt+T to Free Transform Copy, and in the Option Bar, set the X and Y to Relative. Set X to zero, and Y to the height you set earlier, and commit the Transform. Then Repeatedly press Shift+Control+Alt+T to make more transformed copies.
    With a vertical column of shapes, Alt-Click on the Shape Path in the Paths panel to select the whole path. Control+Alt+T again. This time, again using relative, set X to three-quarters of the width you noted earlier, and Y to one-half the height, and commit
    Finally, again Alt-click on the Shape Path in the Paths panel, and Transform Copy relative with X = one and a half times the width you noted, and Y to zero. After committing this, Shift+Control+Alt+T as above to extend more columns.
    And JJ, those are Octagons .

    I'm using a 15" Macbook Pro running OSX6.8 and cannot upgrade. I have a subscription to Adobe CC but none of these work on this so I was on with Adobe for 5 hours trying to install and launch Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, Muse, and Acrobat Pro from CS6. Well, InDesign is the only one that works and I have a ton of work due! I don't have a serial number for Photoshop or Illustrator except for CS3, and they don't work. InDesign gave me no problems. Illustrator says it can't work on this machine. Photoshop needs a serial number. I'm stumped and getting anxious and freaked out. Can anyone help? Adobe Chat is down right now.

    Using Photoshop CS6 and after printing approx. 10 cards on an Epson R3000 printer the program gives me a dialog box saying "There was an error opening your printer. Printing functions will not be available until you have selected a printer and reopened any documents."  Even after closing and reopening the program, the print command is greyed out so I cannot select any printer. This also happens with a Brother laser printer. Both printers will produce a test page out side of the Adobe product. Help!

    I cannot get any help either.  I get the message "There was an error opening your printer. Printing functions will not be available until you have selected a printer and reopened any documents."  I have reinstalled all drivers, powered off/on all printers (2 of them - a Brother HL - 4040cn and an Epson Stylus Pro 7890 - which all worked fine until this morning).  There appears to be no path to a solution.  I have read all the forums and tried about 20 different suggestions all to no avail.  Reboots, changing cables, reinstalling printers and drivers and Photoshop CS6 - ALL TO NO AVAIL.  On a macbook pro retina with 10.10.3.  This issue is out there and some get solutions - but not all - that's my crowd...the not all crowd.  I have yet to be able to print from CS6 any more.  This is a show stopper and my patience is wearing thin.  And I'm tired of stupid questions like "is your printer powered on?" give me a break.  This appears to be an adobe photoshop cs6 problem - as I can print from every other application.  Anyone have any ideas?  Adobe should have something?...

  • I need help installing Photoshop on my Macbook Pro.

    I am trying to install Photoshop on my Macbook pro running OSX 10.6.8 for my student photographer daughter. Every time I try to install either the 30 day trial or buy the monthly plan it tells me that the computer can't establish a secure connection and suggests that the url has changed. I checked it on my Mac at work, today but it looks fine. She needs Photoshop, not necessarily the fastest newest version for college, but needs to use it from this older Macpro. Any thoughts?
