    Hi,

    Anybody knows how far behind the current version of adobe software we can be
    and still get the special upgrade price?

    I must admit I'm quite a bit behind in both my Illustrator and Photoshop
    version; they suits my need just fine for now, but at every new Window
    version I'm worried that they won't work on it. Eventually I will have to
    upgrade if only to be able to run them on the latest operating system; I
    would just like that day to be as far in the future as possible :).

    I haven't found any clear info on the Adobe site about this.

    Thanks.

    So I should be safe until the 64 bits version of Window then.
    Thanks Hecate.

    Yes, of course, but I meant when the whole chain as gone 64 bits. I'm a
    videographer/video editor first, doubled as a music composer and when my
    video editing and music sequencer suit as gone 64 bits, I'll have no choice
    but to follow then, with all that ensue. I see the sign at the horizon, yes,
    but I don't think that that's for tomorrow.

    PS and Illi are not at the heart of my system; essential yes, but I can
    often make do with less than the latest (heck, I often work with the Gimp
    when I'm at other peoples place, and that never stopped me from doing what I
    wanted). I would totally hate to have to pay full price again when update
    time comes around thought.

    Understand. Different for me, it's PS/Illy/Painter that matter :)

    Adobe's site indicates any version of PS will do. Here's a quote from their
    upgrade site
    (http://store.adobe.com/store/products/master.jhtml?id=catPhotoshopUpgrade):

    "To install upgrade successfully, you will need a licensed version of
    Photoshop 7.0 or earlier on the same platform as this purchase."
