I have CS4 installed on my old iMac (now on its last legs) and have recently bought a new machine. I'm hoping to get some advice on whether I should reinstall (download and activate) CS4 on my new iMac or launch straight into Creative Cloud? Will this mean that if I set up in Creative Cloud that there will be no need to purchase any of the updates from CS4 - CS5 - CS6? If I transfer my work across, will my CS4 files open in Creative Cloud or, if I stick to CS4, will it be compatible with the new Mac OS X environment Yosemite?
I use mainly Dw, Ps, Illustrator, Adobe Pro, and now Lr as the new editing platform for my photography work?
Before I go any further with install or set up, any advice from users/tech support would be gratefully received.
Creative Cloud is a completely independent product. There is no requirement for any previous version. CS4 files should open just fine, though of course a few tiny things may be different. CS4 is not compatible with Yosemite, so that's not a viable plan.
thank you. I'm glad I asked first.
