    I’m a teacher and will probably upgrade to CC. My question is will the current education edition price be grandfathered yearly? Sounds like an awesome deal. I always upgrade, so this is actually saving $$$. I will always have CS6 to fall back on.

    Cool, I could buy it.
    When CS6 came out I got shocked, the theme changed to black and 3D Text. A lot of things I could see.

    I hope Creative Cloud isn’t the last version. If another comes out, I guess they should name it CC2 or CC3.
    If this is the last version, I hope they’ll updated it. A lot of people use it today.

    I had used Photoshop in its first version. Now it changes a lot.
    Remember that, add more features, but be careful about bugs.

    I really want to work with this software, but I don’t even know about the codes.
    They could work with some software, it will be easier. Like Gimp, people can shared their own plugin but they need to script. Or share their own brushes, texts, etc.; people could play with these features for a long time.

    Thank you,
    Mike.

    Thank you for the very good description. This should be done by Adobe – they can be grateful that you are supporting Adobe customers.

    Thanks again, good job.

  5. Ray

    I have several plugins for CS6, how do i get them to CC?

  6. Adam

    So I am confused, I was going to buy photoshop for its photo editing abilities – is this new software just photoshop but with a new name ?

    Should I still get photoshop cs6, or is this the one I should get ?

    • Greetings Adam, yes – Photoshop CC is definitely the Adobe Photoshop, the latest-and-greatest release of Adobe’s leading program.

      There is no “CS7” – Photoshop CC is the next version after Photoshop CS6 (it replaces and is better than CS6), so CC is really like CS7…

      With Photoshop CC, the world’s best photo and image editing tool gets faster performance and new features plus enhancements to existing capabilities.

      The “CC” versions originally came out in June 2013, and have already been updated many times since then. The ongoing upgrades are automatically included for CC customers.

      Which one you buy depends on whether you want to pay a lot of money upfront for an older version (CS6 from 2012), or an affordable monthly price (just $10) for the latest CC release.

      This detailed comparison guide should help you decide:

      Compare Your Options: Creative Cloud (CC) vs. Creative Suite (CS6)

      Hope that fully answers your question, if not then just post back!

    • And here’s another way to look at it:

      — Adobe’s desktop tools, previously known as Creative Suite (CS), are now branded CC (Creative Cloud) to reflect their reinvention and to support a more intuitive, connected and collaborative way of creating – the creative industry is changing and they want to access, share, collaborate in real time with the latest and greatest innovations.

      — Adobe is doing away with new versions of Creative Suite – they have no plans for future releases of Creative Suite or CS products. CC is what Adobe’s flagship collection of creative tools will be known as going forward, containing newer versions of all the same applications and more.

      — New creative software innovation (feature upgrades) will be delivered exclusively to Creative Cloud members and not through perpetual software any longer.

    Will CC be available for a flat out purchase (specifically PS) or is the new model for Adobe a subscription basis? Simply put, can I buy a hardcopy of the latest PS and be done with it? A subscription does not really interest me.

    Or if i want a hardcopy, does that mean i need to go the route of CS6? Are those essentially the only two options i have?

    Thanks for the help!

    • Welcome Jay, the answer is no – Adobe has been very clear they are not bringing back perpetual licenses for the Creative tools, so the only way to get the latest releases now and in the future is to go with CC (Creative Cloud). CC does include free ongoing upgrades so you can stay current with the latest.

      The other option as you noted is to get CS6 instead, which Adobe is still selling direct for anyone who wants it – but it’s important to note that the CS6 release is over two years old now and may not be supported on future/newer operating systems (such as Windows 10 [aka Windows 9] or Mac OS X 10.10 ‘Yosemite’). Both of those are expected out within the next 12 months, and Adobe says you should not expect any updates for any of the CS6 applications to address possible OS compatibility issues either on MacOS or Windows.

      Check out this guide for more details and to help decide between the two Adobe choices:

      Creative Cloud (CC) or Adobe CS6 – Which Should You Buy?

      Finally, you can download the free trials of one or the other, or even both versions, if you want to try them out for yourself on your own machine:

      Download CS6 Free Trials

      Hope this helps!

    Hello–I am a high school teacher and we are adopting CC next year. I will specifically be teaching Dreamweaver CC. Are there any high school level text books or teacher resources available yet for Dreamweaver CC? If not, is CS6 similar enough to use those text books and teacher resources with my students?

  9. monica

    Can I use my CS6 actions in CC, just wondering before I download. Thanks

  10. prasanna

    Hey, we were using CS6 for creating flash panels, I just want to know whether the new version CC can be used for creating the flash panels.

  11. Bill

    How can I get CS6 to work on windows 7 64-bit?

  12. Bakema

    Which is the best between adobe cs and cc?

  13. Andrew Smith

    I’m using CS6 on a Windows 7 box and it is still performing just as well as ever. Earlier this year I upgraded my camera to the (current best general purpose HD cam) Sony PMW-300 and the 50Mbit 4:2:2 XDCAM codec edits and plays beautifully. CS6 is very stable and mature, enabling me to concentrate on getting the work done without having to keep paying extra.

    • That’s great Andrew, and there’s nobody forcing you to upgrade… In fairness though, one could say the same types of things about most software that you’ve run on your system for awhile.

      So you might still be able to use old(er) versions of Photoshop, but we would argue that in terms of features, performance, and other improvements, you can’t miss what you’re not running… How much potential time saved and productivity might you be giving up by not advancing with the state of the art? It’s hard to say, but we use CC 2014 every day now and wouldn’t want to go back.

      Finally, Photoshop CS6 Extended (full) costs $999 for someone who doesn’t have it… So that is a huge upfront expense. How many of years of $10/month on the new CC Photography Plan (with the inclusion of Lightroom plus all ongoing upgrades) would that equate to?

  14. Sally

    As an non-professional illustrator of books, I create watercolour artworks and scan them into PS Elements to fine tune them. The author supplies me with Word text which I then convert to a PDF and drop onto the appropriate page.

    There were many many steps to do this and text manoeuvring/manipulation and editing proved painfully long winded. And now the printer wanted me to add a “bleed” and the CMYK files (which I couldn’t as I had no idea how to). So now I’m considering using Adobe InDesign for the next books.

    Am I on the right track? I already have LR5 and PSE12.
    I use an Apple laptop (I travel a lot but continue to work) and a desktop Windows 7 when at home. Can I get both versions for the one price?

    Will CC 2014 – specifically InDesign be able to do all I need?

    Having used PSE for quite a number of years now, is InDesign similar or will I have to relearn from the beginning?

    • Hi Sally, InDesign and Photoshop do different things – but it sounds like InDesign is really what you need from what you’ve described of your work…

      Photoshop is the world’s best image editor, while InDesign is a page layout and desktop publishing application. Creative Cloud includes both tools (with the pro/full version of Photoshop instead of Elements), and they are fully-integrated which means they work well and smoothly together.

      Photoshop CC can also do the CMYK color model for printers, which Elements cannot do.

      Acrobat XI Pro and Lightroom are also part of the Creative Cloud bundle, as is Adobe Illustrator if you ever wish to try/use that in your work. See everything that CC contains.

      So considering what you outlined, it sounds like your best bet would really be to download and run a free trial of CC 2014 and see how you make out. It’s fully-functional and won’t cost you a cent for the first 30 days to try out (or possibly up to 44 days).

      To get started actually learning the tools, check out Adobe’s Learn Creative Cloud tutorials.

      There are also over 20 Adobe books you can legally download for free.

      Hopefully that fully answers your questions, if not just post back!

  15. We love the new Adobe cloud products, a much more convenient and manageable way of buying these great tools.

  16. Jay T

    A few questions:

    1) I already have LR 5 but not PS and am interested in the LR+PS deal. Will purchasing this download LR to my computer?

    2) How will this affect my catalog? If I choose to unsubscribe in the future, what will happen to my ability to use LR and any updates, i.e. will it revert back to the most current version within LR5?

    3) I am considering moving to Mac from Windows in the next year or so. How will that affect me if I purchase under the PC setting?

    4) Is it easy to transfer ownership of the software if I get a new computer (e.g. Windows to Mac)?

    Thank you so much!

  17. We have developed in the past some .Net code (VB.NET) for managing CS5 documents, open/save, manage contents, and so on.

    One of our students has installed the CC2014 free trial in preview to ensure compatibility, and our VB.Net code no longer works as expected – it does not work at all.

    Can you please forward me what has been changed on API level that can break compatibility with external tools (not addins) developed with .Net Visual Studio ?

    Are there any changes we must take into consideration if we decide to switch to CC2014 from CS5/6 ?

  18. Veronica

    Can you please let me know if I can open a PDF file and convert it to DWG with Adobe Illustrator CS6?

  19. Vishakha

    What are compatible classes and files for
    IImportFileCmdData.h,
    IFrameComposer.h,
    IScriptEventData.h (from cs3)
    in CC

  20. Abhijit Mishra

    Sir, can I change the background of a video without a green screen in after effects cc, as in cs6 I can do in easily where can I change it or not using adobe after effects cc 2016
