Upgrade to CS6

May 7, 2013 5:33 AM

Am I going to encounter any problems if I upgrade from Photoshop CS5 to CS6 at this point in time with Adobe having gone over to the Creative Cloud? The CC is really bad news for me--I don't use Photoshop enough to justfiy the price of a subscription

    The license for CS6 is still available.

    Or do you mean whether Photoshop CS6 handles differently than CS5 or whether it does have bugs?

    Personally I find Adobe’s move to cloud licensing regrettable.

    How do you suppose customers would react if Ford stopped selling cars and only let people rent them?

    Someone has asked me how to purchase a perpetual licence upgrade from Ps CS5.1 to CS6 while there's still the opportunity. I simply cannot find the relevant page at adobe.com. Everything I try leads to CC subscription. Does anybody have a link to a page with a "Buy" button for a perpetual upgrade?

    I think the real key here is how long will Camera Raw be updated.  The fact sheet states

     

    Q: If you’re going to continue selling Photoshop CS6, will I still get Camera Raw updates? A: Because Adobe is still selling Photoshop CS6, those customers will continue to receive updated file format compatibility via Adobe Camera Raw 8. When we update ACR8 with new camera support, Photoshop CS6 customers can work with the new version of the Camera Raw plug-in. No new features or functionality will be available in ACR to Photoshop CS6 customers as part of those updates.

     

    But it does not answer how long will CS6 be sold?

    In my browser, the prices are for regular customers. Screenshot:

    That is weird as I click on your link, then click on first link https://www.adobe.com/products/catalog/cs6._sl_id-contentfilter_sl_cat alog_sl_software_sl_creativesuite6.html?start=20

     

    and I get this.  Same if I use link provide in Scotts Q&A.  Using Win 7 and Firefox, but don't see why that would make difference.

    Maybe you're being redirected because of something in your Adobe account.

    Adobe has hidden the upgrade pages. These links only offer full price purchase.

    No. Look at my screenshot. It shows the CS5 Extended to CS6 Extended upgrade price of $399

    perhaps I misunderstood. The discount pricing is under the dropdown list on lower rightScreenshot_5_7_13_2_58_PM.png

    I see it much like this in safari, but apparently among various browsers.
