Adobe Changes Upgrade Policy – Only CS5 Owners Get CS6 For Less

November 27th, 2011

Adobe-changesforupgrade.jpgSoftware, especially software from
Adobe, is expensive. Just Photoshop is $199 and even the cheapest
edition of the Creative Suite is over a grand. It’s a lot to shell
out for a pro and a cost that’s hard to justify for a hobbyist.

Adobe has a history of treating their
return customers nicely though. If you own an Adobe program that was
released within the last three versions, you qualify for a nice
discount. If you own Photoshop CS2, for example, you get around $400
off of the CS5.5 Design Standard bundle.

Starting with CS6 though, the company
is changing its policy. The only way you can get a discount is by
owning the previous version. CS5 owners will qualify for a cheaper
CS6 while everyone else has to pay full price.

It seems likely that this move is to
steer customers away from the traditional software buying model and
get them more eager to adopt Adobe’s new subscription plans.
