CS6 is version 8 and no, you cannot go beyond that without a subscription.
Thank you for that. For a 73 year old luddite how much will that cost me? Is it an upgrade or the whole caboodle? And again, I want the actual discs.
There are no actual disks, I think. You need good Internet. InDesign alone is (from memory) $20/month with a year commitment. $50 for all apps. It is not "on the cloud" but an app you install in the usual way after downloading. You have the option to use an Adobe cloud to save and share files but you don't have to.
After an initial flurry of people saying "cloud, that sounds new and exciting" Adobe's cloudy name is now proving an albatross as many people just say "I don't want cloud software" (nor would I if it was).
