Moving this to the Photoshop forum.
Account sign-in at your link is working at this precise moment so try again. Good luck!
Nope - still hangs when I try it
Could the process have anything to do with Flash?
I ask as Flash won't work my system (Mac OS PPC with 10.4.11)
Check this page for "direct" download links. Note: You MUST follow the detailed instructions to the letter.
But more fundamentally: Photoshop CS6 does not work on a PowerPC Mac, as far as I know.
Even if you get signed in, CS6 requires OS X 10.6.8 and newer.
Thanks for the link - I'll check it out
I know CS6 won't work on my current system but I wanted to upgrade to CS6 before CS7 comes out so when I eventually do get a new mac I won't have to fork out the whole whack. I certainly want nothing to do with a subscription based usage, it also works out more expensive as I only use Ps (not extended) and Lr. Might be a year away before I can afford a new mac as things are pretty tight now but just didnt want to get left with a daft bill for Ps when I do
However I still have the problem of not being able to log in to my adobe account to access serial numbers , old downloads etc. Not an urgent issue but if I were to lose anything from HD fails etc It would be, also, not that I can see it happening, it prohibits me from accessing creative cloud - even the free edition
thanks but the 'sign in' option still takes me to the same (previous problem) page, unless I'm missing something?
Other browsers: the only viable option is Firefox AFAICS but I cannot find an earler MAC version. I think 3.6.2 was the last version that worked on 10.4.11 PPC but can only find .exe versions of it now - so I'm stuck with Safari
Also the only support options from adobe require signing in - catch 22
Photoshop CS4 was the last version that worked on a Mac PPC so it seems that you have CS4 or an earlier version.
Adobe changed their upgrade requirements and only allows the upgrade path for the previous version. In this case Photoshop CS5.
Previously Adobe allowed upgrade for up to 3 versions back and when the new policy was announced people were in a uproar.
Adobe backtracked slightly and continued the 3 version back upgrade policy only until Dec 31, 2012.
Customers had almost a year to take advantage of this upgrade path from older versions
As of Jan 1, 2013 only CS5 users can buy the upgrade to CS6.
All older versions are now out of the upgrade path and must pay full price to get CS6.
Even if you finally able to login in to your Adobe account, you won't be able to go to CS6 using the upgrade reduced price.
you're right of course - I forgot to mention an essential bit of info in this regard, in that I do have Ps CS5. However it is still cheaper for me to upgrade twice than to buy a full price copy
Still can't log in:(

So you do have CS5, that shows a lot of forward thinking.
Regarding Firefox for PPC, did you try this link: http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-no-longer-works-mac-os-10-4-or-powerpc
At the bottom of the page under option 2 is a link to download, I tried it and the DMG downloaded.
In the past, Adobe has given a free upgrade to a newly announced version to people that had just purchased the current version within the previous 4 - 6 weeks right before the newest version is announced.
This policy may have changed, but if you wait until they make the announcement that CS7 is coming in X number of days, you could buy the upgrade to CS6 and also get a free upgrade to CS7. Timing is everything.
However, this may have changed, do some research, maybe call Adobe, etc, and you just might be able to get 2 upgrades for the price of 1.
Good luck, but Caveat Emptor

No way, you're not stuck with Slofari.
On my PPC Power Mac G5 Quad under Tiger 10.4.11, I'm running Firefox 3.6.28, as well as TenFourFoxG5 17.0.5 (that's a special verson of Firefox for the G5, there are versions for the G4 and G3), Camino 2.1.2, iCab 4.9.0, Opera 10.63…
As for the URL, I just realized you're in the UK.
thanks so much for that link - and yes I was able to sign in to adobe with FF whereas safari hung
I had forgotten though the other problem with this version of FF - it also hangs considerably , albeit at different points than Safari, and usually a message eventually comes up saying unresponsive script and I need to upgrade (just like Flash Grrr) - but hey - that's another problem altogether - the one I had signing into adobe has been solved and for that I thank you all most heartily!
But..... now that I have signed in and also previously thanks to your good advices , managed to download Ps6, how does one go about paying for it, (registering, or whatever it's called) considering that I cannot open it to do it through the program (if such an option exists)
I believe you just need to buy it through Adobe's web site via the Adobe Store, at which time you'll be supplied a serial number, but I'm in the US and I don't know whether the exact same thing applies for you.
I'd be a little worried about not being able to get through the online purchase process given the trouble you're having with your browsers, though.
Over here I've heard that Wells Fargo may be offering low percentage rate small business loans... A loan might be an option to buy that new system you've been needing... It certainly sounds like the one you have currently is delivering pretty spotty operation.
Personally, I'd advise switching to PC, but then I've an entire software engineering career working with PCs so they're easy for to me to deal with. And I really can't say I'm too happy with the direction Microsoft is heading, so maybe not.

Whatever you do, DO NOT PAY for it BEFORE you get it working to your full satisfaction on your system!

Apple is going down that very same road.
Thanks for the thoughts:
I won't be getting a PC , that's just how it is (but lets not go down that tired old Apple-v-Microsoft route here ) and thanks for the loan suggestions etc but I'm maxed out, flying by seat of pants, skin of teeth and similar metaphors
I'm interested in your concerns that I shouldn't pay before I get it working, never had any problem before - I realise I'll need to be using another OS but AFAICS there's no real issue with others using it on my future proposed system....?
-the issue though now is how to pay (browser issues aside) as when I visit the Adobe Ps pages I can only see the option to go for the cloud option, nowhere do I see the option to pay for the downloaded version..........?
I guess not
this is what I get when I click on buy

I tried some of those links.
If you want to upgrade to Photoshop Extended CS6 in the UK, try this; http://www.adobe.com/uk/products/photoshopextended.html
The crazy thing is that if you just want the standard Photoshop CS6, all the links seem to only lead to Creative Cloud memberships.
scroll down to Photoshop CS6 and click on the blue "Buy" to the right of the product, After selecting your options, it takes a little while but the upgrade finally shows up in the shopping cart.
Note: All the other links for Photoshop CS6 on that page just go to Creative Cloud only options. They really make if difficult to find anything except the CC.
Being short of money I procrastinated and LO! now when I try that it has been changed to only offer CC options
this is too much!
many thanks for that:)
You're welcome. That page has deliberately been made quite difficult to find. There's a "buy" link to it in a short sentence of very small light-gray type on a white background near the bottom of each product's Buying Guide page.
