I legally bought Creative Suite 5 when i first bought my mac 3 years ago, i've heard adobe give out updates for free but i can't seem to find out how. i have creative cloud connected and it offers me an update to my illegally downloaded premiere pro but not my real CS. why???
Are you trying to be insulting to mention illegally installed software on a Forum maintained by the maker’s company?
Anyway, you are not eligible for a free upgrade from Photoshop CS5 to Photoshop, which CC does not even have a perpetual license model anymore.
Where did you even get the idea really?
