Photoshop CS6 upgrade discount available for CS5 users only
Adobe is set to change its Photoshop upgrade policy, staring with Photoshop CS6.
If you want to upgrade to Photoshop CS6 (release date sometime in 2012), then you need to make sure you’re on CS5 or CS5.5 already. If you’re on CS4 or an earlier version, you’ll have to pay full price if you intend to buy the new Photoshop package outright. Unless you choose to upgrade to CS5.5 before the end of the year, of course.
Up until now, Adobe had allowed Photoshop users to upgrade to a new version of CS if they owned an existing version up to three generations old. Got a copy of CS2 and wanted to move up to CS5 on its release? No problem – the upgrade price was still good. Now that’s all changing.
“With regards to upgrades, we are changing our policy for perpetual license customers,” Adobe announced on its Conversations blog recently. : http://blogs.adobe.com/conversations/ “In order to qualify for upgrade pricing when CS6 releases, customers will need to be on the latest version of our software (either CS5 or CS5.5 editions).”
Adobe is offering a 20% discount on the upgrade price of CS5 or CS5.5 until 31 December 2011. Take advantage of this offer and you’ll then qualify for the CS6 upgrade price when it’s released in 2012.
Why the change? Essentially, Adobe is looking to expand its subscription-based Adobe Creative Cloud service which enables the company to update the software’s features on an on-going basis.
So… what will you do? Let us know your plans in the comments below.
