In this tutorial, I am going to walk through all the different features etc between Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CC 2015. 

It will be useful to watch the entire video for anyone still using Photoshop CS6 or older versions and wondering whether it is time to upgrade and also for those who are already using Photoshop CC 2015 but never had time to go through the new features released since CS6.
Instead of a detailed feature tour I decided to go through everything quickly covering each new feature in less than 15 seconds. To make it easier to navigate within the video I included a list of the features below in the order they appear in the video. Although this list is very detailed it is still not extensive as there are many minor changes to preferences and the user interface that I won’t be covering in this video.
