Do you have photoshop cs6 extended or standard?
Help>About Photoshop would say extended or the standard version would not say extended.
As far as i know the analysis functions are only available in the extended version even though the menu items might be there in the standard version
which i believe is the version Design Standard ships with.
I guess I have standard b/c I don't see extended. Thanks for your help but this was the whole reason why I got photoshop. I guess I'll see I can return this version and just work on campus from now on.
Well if you got student pricing i would look at the other creative suites or creative cloud.
This is just a version comparision and imagine student pricing is much cheaper:
I have exactly the same problem. The count tool isn't selectable either... I purchased my "Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design Standard and Teacher Edition" in May 2012 - so no chance of returning.
I am really disappointed!
Not that it helps you in the short term, but it's a life lesson: Strive to know what you're buying before you buy it. Find out what the options are and understand the differences between base and high-end models.
I don't know whether you can upgrade what you bought to something that includes Photoshop CS6 Extended, but it's probably worth asking an Adobe sales person for the details.
Yes, I know. Rather silly of me. Before I bought this package, I tested the automation and contact sheet tools. I thought that the measurement and count tools were basic enough to be included in a the non-extended version. I've writen to the Adobe team... perhaps there is a way.
