Adobe Says No CS6 Upgrade Discounts from Older CS2, CS3, or CS4

November 10th, 2011 98 comments

[UPDATE (January 11th, 2012) – Adobe has listened to customers and just reversed this change! CS3, CS4, & CS5 are all good for upgrade to CS6 now.]

HUGE breaking news out from Adobe, regarding substantial changes in upgrade pricing and policies for their very popular Creative Suite software

Save 20% extra on your upgrade to Adobe CS5.5

For several years, the company has offered a “three-versions-back” upgrade policy – meaning anyone who owned a prior CS product up to three major versions back would be eligible for discounted upgrade pricing when moving up to the latest release.

Meaning, if you’ve got CS2, CS3, or CS4 – either a full suite or an individual point product like Photoshop – you can receive price reductions of up to 80% when upgrading to CS5.5.

Adobe now says that will be ending – the policy is going to shift dramatically, worldwide.

Starting in 2012 when CS6 comes out, this will be changing to a “one-version-back” plan – meaning to receive a price break when upgrading to CS6, you need to already be on some flavor of Creative Suite 5 – either CS5 or CS5.5.

So, what does this mean for anybody still running CS2, CS3, or CS4 at that time?  Basically, if you want to upgrade later or have been waiting for CS6 to do so, it would cost you full price… To receive a discount from older versions, you’d need to upgrade to CS5 before CS6 ships.

Here it is straight from Adobe’s “Conversations” Blog:

Adobe Deal: Save 50%(!) on Premiere Pro CS5.5 or Production Suite

July 8th, 2011 Leave a comment

[UPDATE – See all of Adobe’s current deals & discounts!]

Adobe has launched a true barnburner of a deal, a “first” for owners of competitive software and also for owners of many versions of Adobe products who can now buy the latest CS5.5 release of Premiere Pro or the full Production Premium suite (Windows or Mac) for half-off their normal prices with coupon code, and the offer is available all over the world…

Half-Price Coupon Code: CS5.5 Production Premium

It’s officially targeted at video users and producers, but because the suite contains products like Photoshop Extended, Illustrator, Flash Professional, Audition, and Flash Catalyst in addition to Premiere Pro* and After Effects* (see the full list of applications included), many could take advantage at these prices. For example, the normal price of Photoshop CS5 Extended is US$999, but with this special you get that plus an entire suite of 10 other products for US$849 total!

Apple Final Cut Pro and Avid Media Composer customers can receive the 50% savings off the full versions of Premiere Pro CS5.5 or CS5.5 Production Premium – but you must use the promotion code linked here: SWITCH. If you need more convincing, see the Top 10 Reasons to Switch to Premiere Pro CS5.5 (now just $399), or learn why Adobe is offering this sale.

Owners of any of the Adobe tools listed below are also eligible to receive the same price (50% off the full version) on the Production Premium suite, under a parallel offer…

Photoshop Celebrates 20th Anniversary

February 20th, 2010 Leave a comment

Photoshop 1.0 - Now 20 years and 10 major versions older

Hard to believe, but on Friday Adobe Photoshop officially celebrated its 20th anniversary (or birthday, depending on how you look at it)… The New York Times writes:

“It’s remarkable when a product stays on top of its game for 20 years, and Adobe Photoshop had done just that. The first version of Photoshop shipped on Feb. 19, 1990, at a price of $895. Today it’s the go-to tool for professional photographers and graphic designers, and it is used by 10 million people around the world, according to Adobe.”

Indeed, the software has traveled a long way. When it first came out, Adobe predicted it would sell just 500 copies per month. Yet now, over 90 percent of creative professionals worldwide have Photoshop on their desktops. The original authors say they knew they had a groundbreaking technology on their hands, but never anticipated how much it would impact the images we see all around us.

The current CS4 version of Photoshop is actually release 11.0 – so there have been ten major versions of the tool over the past two decades. And the flagship product is less expensive now than when it originally came out, even more so (less than half the price) when adjusting to 1990 dollars. Photoshop together with Acrobat and Dreamweaver remain Adobe’s top three selling individual desktop products.

Free shipping on all Photoshop products

In honor of the celebration, Adobe is offering a couple new specials for the week… The first is free shipping on all Photoshop-family products in the North American commercial store. The second is free shipping on all Adobe products for the Europe and Australia commercial stores, with the promotion code adobeeu. All shipping offers are valid through Sunday, February 28th, and might be stackable with the 10%-off coupon code posted last week.
