I haven't been keeping up on the latest news and/or releases from Adobe so I am not even sure what the newest version of Photoshop is but when I looked into upgrading from CS5 to CS6 the only thing I can find from Adobe is a plan to pay a monthly fee to use what is I presume to be a web based service with access to Photoshop and Lightroom.

Is it possible to just buy an upgrade license these days?

You can still get CS6 standalone, but you might need to call Adobe to get it.

Hrm,

I'm curious too. I am still on CS5 because I bought it and it still serves my purposes. I have been interested in updating to CS6 simply to gain OpenCL support for heavy actions. But not sure if it's worth it. I'm curious what they would charge for the CS6 now. I have no interest in a monthly service either.

If you call, post the price please? Would be interesting to know too!

Very best,

CC is the latest and as you say, it is a subscription based plan paying monthly for the rest of your life. CS6 is the last version that you can buy with a perpetual license (pay one time and that's it) and there are quite a few new features as well as improvement in CS6 over CS5. Finding CS6 has become very difficult though as Adobe is pushing everyone to CC aggressively but it can still be found though you might have to call and listen to the hard sell about how great CC is. Last time i visited their page it was so buried that it was almost laughable showing that the upgrade is $699 but with persistence I finally found what I was looking for.

Wow, that's insane. Isn't that pretty much retail price on the full (non upgrade) version?

Paying a monthly fee would cost me far more than a normal upgrade fee as I obviously can get by with an outdated version for several years.

If you're only using Photoshop, Adobe's Photography plan, that also includes Lightroom, is $99 for the year. A bargain if you ask me.

The cost is $199 but you have to get to the right package. I think Adobe is being really dishonest with their website trying to do everything possible to scare you into the lifetime plan.

If you use LR and PS every day then it is certainly worth it.

If you only use LR, and only infrequently, or are learning it, then it is a crummy deal.

Or if you don't need LR and are only interested in PSCS or you just don't need the new features, or just don't want to pay monthly.

Maybe before long Adobe will be going to an as-use basis. Something like 5¢ per photo plus 5¢ per edit. Then the heavy users will pay more their share, and occasional users will get a fairer deal.

Okay well for $199 I would be happy to pay for an upgrade as that is a much better deal than $99 a year for me since upgrading will suit my needs for the next several years and there is no telling when the monthly/yearly fee will go up.

It is not $99.00. $9.99X12 is about $120.00 a year. If you have LR5 which is as good as it gets and CS6, you don't need much more. Only lens profiles that come after 2015 will probably not be included.

Why not break it down further? .001¢ per tool use. That way heavy editors would pay their fair share and those just moving a slider or two would be able to get it cheaper. ;):):) Needless to say I am not a fan of either the subscription or pay per use model.

It was when I posted that back in January.
