Adobe Releases a New Video That Makes You Feel Guilty for Pirating it

You see, I can make jokes about pirating their software because not only do I personally dislike (hate) Adobe but I’ve never used their software for any of my work. Rant aside Adobe just launched a new video along with a blog post announcing some lesser known facts about CS6. Here are some of the neat facts that are in the video:

  • 10,000 people hours to build Photoshop CS6
  • 4.5 million lines of code
  • 1,900 icons replaced along with 250 cursors
  • 63% more features (how do you measure that?)
  • 24 changes to the crop tool
  • 2,563 beta testers
  • The largest document size in Photoshop CS6 is 300,000 pixels
  • 601 cases of beer were consumed
  • It was finished on Friday the 13th and its internal codename was superstition (coincidence?)
  • 500,000 downloads in the first week (I wasn’t one of them)

They created this video to celebrate reaching the 5 million fans mark on their Facebook page, this is of course something we celebrate now.
