I am pro graphic artist with PS since version 1. CS6 (who was it designed for??) Icons are so small can't use them, Program runs very slow, lots of beach balls (Mac Pro 5,5, 24GB RAM, 11TB of HD, ATI 5870) There is no reason for this. PS CS5 much better and faster on 10.6.8. Please explain or give me my money back!!

It was designed for users of Photoshop, and the same people as every previous version of Photoshop.

The icons are the same size as in previous versions of Photoshop.

As for running slow, or getting the OS beachball -- most of those causes are tied to third party plugins, drivers, corrupt fonts, etc. The majority of users are not having such problems, and those who have reported similar problems have usually found the cause on their system and fixed it. We fixed a few other specific slowdowns in the 13.0.1 update.
