    Upgrading CS5 options

    pepita70

      I've had PS up to CS5. When tried to upgrade found out your set-ups have changed and not sure I understand it. I am a hobbyist who uses PS often for personal photo projects and scrapbooking so I dont need all the specialty features some professionals might need. As such what are the options I have for upgrade? Secondly if I do not upgrade from CS5 will I encounter any problems because of that? I am now using it on a regular Mac Book pro and the Mac Air. Any ideas and suggestions?

      Thanks,

      JRD

          Hi pepita70,

           

          Current options for upgrade are:

          You can upgrade to the latest version of Photoshop and Lightroom by joining the CC Photography Plan. https://creative.adobe.com/plans/photography

          You can upgrade to Photoshop CS6 (non-CC-membership): http://adobe.ly/10iKEn4

           

          If you do not upgrade, the system you have now, assuming it's working, can continue to work.

          CS5 is not coded for yet-to-be unreleased OS updates. It is these updates in the future that could potentially break some of the current working CS5 functionality. In a way -- Update the OS at the risk of CS5 stopping working in the future.

          Current versions of CC 2014 and later will support all current operating systems.

           

          Hope this helps,

          Regards.

          Pete
