I would like to buy Photoshop CS6 right now and skip that annoying "Continue Trial" window that interrupts me every time when I open the file from Finder. I do not keep propgrams open when they are not in use. Starting Photoshop CS6 many times per day interrupts my work every time with that window. I would like to just pay and forget this window forever. I am ok with bugs and everything "beta". Just give me a way to work normally, please
it´s a beta.. you have to wait for the final.
i don´t think adobe will start to (official.. ) sell beta products.
but i agree that the beta reminder is a bit annoying... a reminder once a day would be enough.

Because Adobe is far from a "small company". It's a gargantuan bureaucracy with over 6,000 employees that sells literally hundreds of products.
The price for the final release of CS 6 hasn't even been set yet. Procedures have to be followed.
Try going to Ford and demand that they sell you now a 2014 model while you drive one of their prototypes. They will either laugh at you or call security to take you away in a straight jacket.
We are really happy that you liked CS6 Beta, but unfortunately there are no Serial numbers for it yet.
Please read the following thread to get more information:
I am a software developer since 1996, so I know what "beta" is
It is strange to see when a beta version says "Continue trial". Generally beta versions for similar software have a defined expiration date and that's it. Adobe decided to use a very unusual and uncommon model for public betas. I am not saying it is wrong or anything. It is your software and you decide. But it is annoying to see that window pop up all the time. I'd rather to pay now to get rid of it. I am going to buy PS CS6 anyway. It makes no difference for me when to pay. But it can save me time and nerves if I could get rid of that box now.
If it is not possible – ok, I'll have to live with it. PS CS6 is a great product. I was on CS3 all this time and I love CS6!
I assumed that the button to BUY NOW was put there so when you buy the CS6 you can click the button, enter serial mumber, update, and you are done. Will not have to download or load program from disk for the released version.
Could be wrong however, and it is just an annoying ploy.
Sorry about all the trial messages.

What you can do is upgrade to CS 5.5 right now and then you'll get a free upgrade to CS6 when it comes out. That won't change the behavior of the beta of course
I have CS3 Web Premium (includes Photoshop Extended). Business store tells me I need "Adobe Photoshop Elements 8, 7, or 6 for Windows or Photoshop Elements 8, 6, or 4.0 for Mac". Do I qualify for the CS5.5 upgrade? I am not sure.
Which upgrade option did you select in the Business store? And which product are you trying to purchase? If you're upgrading the Web Premium Suite from CS3 to CS5.5, then select "Upgrade from 1 Suite" (atleast for the North American store).
I own CS3 web premimum. I do not really need anything beyond Photoshop. So I thought I try to upgrade to a newer Photoshop-only. But I think I can only upgrade from web premium to web premium and not from web premium to just photoshop.
Yes Adobe's policy and stores don't allow for SKU "crossgrades" (ie. Suite to point product).
No. Adobe does not offer upgrade pricing for customers who wish to move from a suite edition to an individual CS component. For complete upgrade information for the product you are interested in, consult that product's buying guide page to determine which upgrades you are eligible for based on the products you currently own.
Before making a purchase decision, you may want to compare cost for new Ps CS5.5/6 full license, vs. Web Premium upgrade license, vs. Creative Cloud subscription. CS3 suite owners have until December 31, 2012 to get upgrade pricing.
