    Now, this is bull-shit
    years ago i went broke buying a new car every year
    no more got it paid for , and bought another
    finally stopped, and the money rolled in
    Adobe is doing the same thing
    Buy the latest photoshop, get it paid for
    and right away there is another, bigger and better
    I have PS CS5 and will continue to use it. To hell with the
    Upgrades. after all , PS is my hobby
    Sorry for my attitude but that is how I feel now

    I am also a hobbyist, and I only upgrade if there is a compelling
    reason to upgrade, not just to say I am using the latest version. The
    policy they reversed was truly bull-shit. I believe that was a failed
    attempt to raise revenue by threatening their faithful customer base
    who had become comfortable with the old upgrade path. I also have a
    feeling that CS6 is not going to be be a great improvement over CS5 an
    most CS5 users would not be compelled to upgrade.
    This turn about is a return to the practice used by most who use an
    upgrade path when they need it, or when the older editions of ACR do
    not support the latest RAW variants with new camera releases.

    I use CS5 and I am quite happy with it. However I upgraded from CS2 to
    CS4 because CS2 ACR did not support the RAW format in my new cameras. I
    upgraded from CS4 to CS5 because the new features, including the new
    versions of ACR engine and Bridge, were a major leap from CS4.

    Over the years, for various reasons I have upgraded from PS7 to CS to
    CS2 to CS4 to CS4 and have been happy each time.

    That said I am happy to stick with CS5 and have no intention to upgrade to CS6.

  4. I first bought PS 6, and had it on two computers.

    Later I needed a third computer with PS on it, so I bought PS CS2
    and loaded it on the new computer and on eold one.

    Finally I got a fourth computer that is 64 bit, so I bought PS CS5
    and loaded it (64 bit) on the new one and the old one with PS6 (32 bit).

    CS5 is a big step up from CS2. I am a big fan of Highlight/Shadow,
    and that is much improved. A sort of poor man's Highlight/Shadow is in
    Adobe Camera Raw, and sometimes it is adequate. The automatic lateral CA
    correction in ACR CS5 works quite well. Finally, the panorama
    thingie in CS2 was a joke, while the one in CS5 works nicely.
