We have switched from Windows to Mac. We have Photoshop CS3 for Windows. I wanted to switch the license platforms from Windows to Mac, however, I just got off the phone with Adobe and they told me since they do not sell CS3 any longer, I would have to Upgrade to CS4 to switch Platforms for a cost of $500 dollars.

Does this seem correct? Just find it hard to believe that they can not switch my platforms.

Comments???

Yes, it's correct. They call it a crossgrade and you do have to upgrade to the latest version as well as sometimes pay an administration fee.

I have to agree, Adobe, as well as many others, have gotten out of hand. Sure the software is very very good and we all depend on it but to just switch systems you would think there would be another cheaper way.

It's time to consider Pixelmator.

Upgrade PSCS3 to PSCS4 should be 199 (PSCS4) or 349 (PSCS4 Extended)
I don't think a "cross platform" upgrade should (or does) cost more....

You might want to shop around for a used version of PSCS2 or so for OSX. Then again: PSCS3 and lower are not supported on OSX 10.6 (it does run, there is a difference!)

And / or wait for PSCS5.

This is what you do, you purchase the upgrade for your "pc", then ask them for a crossgrade, including the boxes for the old versions and upgrade.


I don't hate macs or OSX, I hate people and statements that portray them as better than anything else. Macs are A solution, not THE solution. Get a good desktop i7 with Windows 7 and come tell me that sucks for photo or video editing.
