But with every version of Photoshop, Adobe adds more functionality to layers. In Photoshop CS6, there are several important new features, such as the capability to assign blend modes, fills, or opacity to multiple layers simultaneously.

Photoshop is an excellent tool for many things, but it's no digital asset manager. The most successful workflows require Photoshop plus something else: Lightroom or Bridge. Which one is best for you depends on a lot of things.
In choosing between the two programs, you'll need to answer these questions:
• Are you new to photography?
• Are you a small studio or a large studio?
• Are you a high-volume shooter?
• Are you a designer, photographer, or both?
• Are you comfortable with computers?
Then you'll want to consider the advantages of each app.
