CS upgrades?

May 20, 2012 10:10 AM

Does anyone know if there a declared policy as to when updgrades to CS series will appear?

 

Explanation: I am looking to purchase CS6 (I am now working as a freelancer so no longer have access to my employer's software) and I am doing the sums about how I am going to finance this looking two or three years ahead. I need to factor in any upgrades along the way.

    What are you upgrading from? What are you upgrading to?

    Adobe has announced a 12 month upgrade cycle. You’re probably better off with Creative Cloud.

    I'd agree with Bob that the Creative Cloud would probably make more sense for you starting out.

    Well, let’s see.

     

     

     

    Mac and Windows CS6 Design and Web Premium: $1899x2=$3798

     

     

     

    Upgrades for each in years two and three: Approx $699x2=$1398x2 years=$2796

     

     

     

    Total for two licenses with two upgrade: $6594

     

     

     

    Now let’s look at Creative Cloud: Three years for two platforms (which includes Master Collection, Muse, Typekit, Edge, unlimited DPS apps) $1800

     

     

     

    Net savings: $4794 and that doesn’t include DPS Single Edition apps which will cost you $399 each without a CC membership.

     

     

     

    Do what you want, but I think I think you’re foolish not to consider Creative Cloud.

    Yes, they do. Until the end of this year you can upgrade to CS6 from CS3 - CS5.5.

     

    Beginning next year only the current version will be eligible for upgrade pricing. IOW, you will not be able to skip versions without paying full price.
