Creative Cloud or perpetual license?
CS6 Trial Download - where can I find it?
CS6 - Buy the Perpetual License version (Not Creative Cloud rental)
To buy an upgrade instead the of full version, click the buy button
then select 'I want to buy: Upgrade' instead of 'Full'.
CS5 and CS5.5 Products are eligible for upgrade to CS6.
Do make sure that you learn the differences between the CS and CC versions
Then read the posts on the subject and decide which is best for you.
With CS you buy the perpetual license and can continue to use the software for as long as you want, it does cost a far amount to buy the product suite
With CC you subscribe and pay a monthy sum to use the software, stop paying and you can no longer access the software but the video files produced will still play OK
Actually, you can get CS6 as part of the Creative Cloud subscription as well. It's available in both flavors, which is why I asked which one he wants.
