As per the title, I have zero interest in the CC/Cloud edition, which I realise makes things tricker nowadays, but I recently bought a retail copy of CS6 and was wondering if I could upgrade to the Extended edition on Adobe, still keeping it retail. Looking in Adobe's buy/upgrade drop-down section (which I found hard to find anyway) I only see a way to upgrade CS5 to CS6 Extended, with no mention of CS6. I've also no idea if that keeps it retail rather than the subscription either. Any help appreciated.
Thanks for your reply! That's good news, as I was sure I'd be told I'd have to move to a subscription service (since that's what Adobe is pushing towards). I wonder why there's no option online to upgrade CS6 to CS6 Extended. Ah well, crossed finders the upgrade isn't too much.
I hope you can get just what you want.
But if you can't, ask yourself: How many months of $9.95 subscription could you buy (what does an Extended upgrade cost? $300?)?
Could you buy the subscription a year at a time, and invest a few hundred dollars in Adobe stock and pay for the subscription for an even longer-term?
And you'll get better 3D support in Photoshop CC.
Just food for thought.
