I posted this on the GS board and thought that I might should post it here too.

If you are thinking about updating from your older version of Photoshop CS 3-5 to CS6, you might want to do it before the end of the day tomorrow. After Dec. 31st, Adobe is changing their update policy and you will only be able to get the lowest update price on the one version before and not on the three previous versions. I just updated my CS4 to CS6 so that I could still get it at $199.

When I heard about this policy I was very disappointed. For many reasons, I only update every other version. It doesn't make sense to me to update for each one, because there aren't enough changes and/or improvements. (And of course, because even the update is expensive). Sometimes the newest version has a few bugs that will improve by the time the second one comes along. I have CS5, and see no reason to update to CS6. I hope they get enough complaints and push-back that they decide it was a dumb idea. Just my two cents.

I did a google search to see when CS7 is expected to be out and it looks like it won't be until 2014, with a CS6.5 coming out in 2013. Since I had CS4, I just decided to go ahead and update. I did not want the time to pass and then regret not getting it. That could cost an extra $100 or so. I think their new policy stinks, but PS users are dedicated and will most likely go along with the new policy. That will mean updating every year in order to get the best price. Maybe they will lower their update price if they force more to update every year. I like PSE but I like being able to have more control like you do in Photoshop.

I haven't been updating really often, I had Photoshop 5, 7, CS and then CS 4 and now CS6.

I'm pretty similar. I had PS 5 (possibly an earlier version, I just don't remember), 7, CS2, CS3, CS5. The only time I got 2 in a row was from CS2 to 3. But in that case, I had the full CS2 Suite, but only got PSCS3. Big mistake. When I went to upgrade to 5, it was a real hassle because I didn't have the full CS3.
I wonder what my office will do? They currently use CS5. Maybe this doesn't apply to corporate purchases.
