You can try out the Photography plan for a week and see if that suits your needs before investing in it.
Does your CS6 still work after your Win10 upgrade?
Thanks Ned and John. I did a clean install of WIndows 10 on a SSD. CS6 is still on the old HD but on launch returns an error code 1, which I suspect means it can't find a registration key. Unfortunately I can no longer find any of the original documentation so have lost the key (if there was one).
If anyone knows how to fix this I would be glad to hear from them, but otherwise I think I'll take the route suggested by Ned.
If you had the software installed and running/licensed on that drive at some point then there had to be an activation key involved.
To locate the serial number:
If you never deactivated it on the old drive then before you try activating it you should contact Adobe Support thru chat and ask them to reset your activations so that you recover the one tied up on the drive that has it now but doesn't work.
For the link below click the Still Need Help? option in the blue area at the bottom and choose the chat option...
Make sure you are logged in to the Adobe site, have cookies enabled, clear your cookie cache. If it fails to connect try using a different browser.
Serial number and activation chat support (non-CC)
IF you still want to move up then as I said, you can try the subscription route, and if you only need basic PSP then I suggest getting the photography plan (which includes Lightroom) because it comes at half the price of getting Photoshop as a standalone subscription....

Thanks, that's very helpful Ned. I will try your suggestions later today.
You're welcome Robert
