As you know we’re a month into our 4th Annual Figment Album Cover Design Contest, and since we’re at the half way point we though it was a good time to remind you about just one of the great prizes you’ll take home if Chris Mars picks your design! Our good friends at Adobe are going to outfit this year’s winner with a copy of the newly released Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 6!

Adobe Photoshop CS6 software delivers lightning-fast creativity and a sprinkle of magic, enabling designers to create breathtaking images, video, and 3D artwork that will set their work apart in print, on the web, and on mobile devices like tablets and smartphones. Retouch images with astonishing ease and fine control now that the magic of Content-Aware technology powers two completely new additions to the Content-Aware technology family—the Content-Aware Patch tool and Content-Aware Move. Easily create new lens blurs and tilt-shift photography effects. Maximize your hardware investment and save significant time in your workflows thanks to the new Monaco Graphics Engine, which delivers blazing-fast interactions in key editing tools including Liquify, Puppet Warp, and the new Lighting Effects Gallery; new preset migration and sharing, which let you experience Photoshop in the same way across all your computers and bring your customizations from past versions of Photoshop into Photoshop CS6; and new Background Save and Auto-recovery options that boost productivity and image security. Enjoy a much easier way to create 3D artwork with a vastly simplified User Interface, and enhance your 3D creations with shadows lighting, animation, and new sketch and cartoon looks. Use new and enhanced design capabilities—including type styles, layer search, and dashed line creation—to create superior work in fewer steps. Crop faster and with greater precision with the all-new Crop tool. And much more.

Needless to say this is a prize that will help you take your album cover designs to the next level!  So get working on a design now and submit it before the June 1, 2012 deadline to have a chance at winning the image-editing software used by professional photographers and designers all over the world.

    Man, I want CS6 just for the new Content Aware Fill additions alone. I just started studying at Full Sail for Graphic Design and I have CS5, which has Content Aware Fill, and I was psyched to finally have that tool in my arsenal. But literally a few weeks before I started classes, Adobe announced CS6 and the latest tweaks to CAF, and I about started drooling. They’re amazing.
