Scott Kelby sums it up perfectly. If you own CS3 or CS4 you cannot upgrade to CS6 without paying full price now. You must own CS5 or CS5.5 to get the reduced upgrade price! Seems like a Netflix move to me, what a shame!

I thought that has always been the case, in that you can upgrade for the lower upgrade price, to a maximum of 2 steps up. After that you have buy the full program.


Best, Bruce

Thats what it use to be, but now at the end of CS5 product cycle they released you must have at least CS5 to get the discount upgrade price. Under the old policy a CS4 user could still get the discount but not anymore....

Aside from that, this could push people to upgrade even less frequently to "get their money's worth" out of their purchase.

What has been added to CS6 that photogs care about? I have not been keeping up with it.

You must have lots of blurry images. ;)

Nope - just one or two shots which would have been fantastic, had they not been motion-blurred, which I would like to recover.

Was set at ISO 1600 instead of ISO 6400, which made all the difference...

I'd be impressed to see how this new addy works in CS6. :)

Assuming it shows up in CS6, instead of being delayed for some future version.

Thanks for the info. On another note, hasn't Adobe gone away from the "CS" moniker to PS, ie. PS5?


Best, Bruce
