I currently have PS elements 10, bought new and registered with Adobe, so far so good. I'm likely to buy a new computer within the next 6 months and would also like to upgrade to CS6. I had been tempted to buy CS6 earlier and then transfer the program onto the new computer when I get it (which would have the same email account and ISP which I currently use). I had assumed that this would be similar to programs such as Microsoft office (where you buy a licence for up to 3 computers) or some other programs which allow a reinstall following a crash or change of machine.
Comments i've read recently however suggest I'd be wasting my money as Adobe apparently expect me to pay for the software again when I get a new computer and, on the same basis, when my current computer gets binned is my copy of elements 10 non transferable? This seems ridiculous if true as I'm not selling the software or passing it on to anyone else, I would just be reinstalling it on a new machine for my own continued use. Anyone had experience of this or know what the truth of the matter is?
