Product Information


Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended software delivers breakthrough capabilities for superior image selections, image retouching, realistic painting, and 3D extrusions. Experience 64-bit support for fast performance as well as dozens of time-savers throughout your workflow.


Enhanced 3D realism and rich materials :

  • Enhance 3D objects and designs with easy shadow creation, image-based lights, and materials like glass and chrome. Explore with different focus points in your 3D scene by adjusting the range for depth of field.

Faster performance across platforms:

  • Speed up day-to-day imaging tasks and process very large images up to 10 times faster by taking advantage of cross-platform 64-bit support. (Requires a 64-bit-capable computer with a 64-bit version of Mac OS, Microsoft Windows 7, or Windows Vista. Actual performance varies depending on amount of RAM, driver types, and other factors.)

Content-Aware Fill:

  • Remove any image detail or object and watch as Content-Aware Fill magically fills in the space left behind. This breakthrough technology matches lighting, tone, and noise so it looks as if the removed content never existed.

Complex selections made easy:

  • Easily select intricate image elements, such as hair, for refinements, compositing, or placing in layout. Eliminate background color around selection edges, and automatically vary selection edges and perfect masks using new refinement tools.

Puppet Warp:

  • Precisely warp or stretch graphics, text, or image elements to create unique new looks for your designs.

Superior HDR imaging:

  • Create photo-realistic or surreal HDR images with unprecedented speed, control, and accuracy. Get better-than-ever results thanks to automatic ghost removal and greater control with tone mapping and adjustments, and even give single-exposure photos the look of HDR.

Efficient workflow:

  • Enjoy productivity and creativity boosts thanks to dozens of features and enhancements requested by Photoshop users. Straighten images automatically, choose colors from an onscreen color picker, adjust the opacity of many layers at once, and more.

Better media management:

  • Easily manage media with more flexible batch renaming, and access your assets in the context of what you're working on by using the customizable Adobe Mini Bridge panel in Photoshop Extended.

Extraordinary painting effects:

  • Achieve natural and realistic painting effects with the Mixer Brush, which offers on-canvas color blending; Bristle Tips, which let you create lifelike, textured brush strokes; an onscreen color picker; and more.

Design interactive content without writing code:

  • Start with artwork created in Photoshop Extended, import it into Adobe Flash Catalyst, and deliver it as an interactive prototype or as finished content for viewing in Adobe Flash Player.

3D extrusions with Adobe Repouss:

  • Create 3D logos and artwork from any text layer, selection, path, or layer mask with Adobe Repoussé technology. Twist, rotate, extrude, bevel, and inflate your designs.

State-of-the-art raw image processing:

  • Use the Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw 6 plug-in to nondestructively remove image noise while preserving color and detail; add grain to make digital photos look more organic; enjoy more control when performing post-crop vignetting; and more.

    None equal. It's the "Standard"

    Does cost a lot, but well worth it.

    Remarkable what can be done with it. Software Media has the best prices on ALL software.

    64 bit FINALLY


    I have been using PS since the original. It just gets better and better.

    Photoshop is Photoshop. Sure, there are other packages out there that offer similar functionality, but not to the same level. Photoshop sets the standard.

    Cost. It's not cheap. But if you qualify for an upgrade, it makes it a lot more bearable. And Software Media had the best price online.

    Content aware fill and Adobe Raw make this upgrade well worth the money and help me create flawless photos.

    easy to use, has myriad features


    Whether you are a graphic designer or an amateur photographer, you will find this product 100% useful. I have tried many photo editing programs in the past but none can compare to this product by Adobe. It is so precise with its editing capabilities and it offers so many features that it's simply impossible to keep up. You certainly get what you paid for and then some. Highly recommended.

    I never imagined how many things I could do to an image with Photoshop. It's wild

    I wish I had a faster processor to run this program, but I understand it's a big program.
