Don't run away screaming...it's just that Adobe Photoshop CS6 has arrived at B&H Photo. With the creepiest box illustration yet. It looks like something from some sort of futuristic horror movie to me. (Of course, I don't watch futuristic horror movies, so my creepy-meter might be badly calibrated. Still, I think I might not like having that box in the house.)

Featured Comment by David Mayer: "Glad I'm not the only one to be creeped out by this. I know it's a matter of taste, and I also know it's just a box, so it probably doesn't matter, but still. When I overcome my initial repulsion and look closely, I see the scalloping which I assume are supposed to be scales. I guess I've seen too many bad 'shop jobs but this reminds me of really bad use of cloning tool. Maybe they want to sell some Photoshop (TM) courses."

Featured Comment by Ivan: "Weird, fantastic, cinematic, imaginative—and best of all, not corporate. Kudos to whomever had the guts to go with this."
