[UPDATE – Also see our new Spring Creative Cloud 2022 Giveaway!]
Welcome Spring! In recent years we’ve given away over $23,000 worth of new Adobe software, so to kick off the new season right we’re going to be giving away two brand new boxes: the Adobe CS6 Design & Web Premium Suite plus Photoshop CS6 – with a collective value of US$2,600 – and it’s open worldwide!
Creative Suite 6, Adobe’s flagship product line, has been doing very well in recent months… Available standalone for instant download or as the centerpiece of the popular Creative Cloud offering, there are many key differences in this release compared to CS5 and earlier, including hundreds of new features added to all the applications, major performance improvements, user interface enhancements, and much more.
And now we’re thrilled to give away new boxed copies of Adobe’s two best-selling CS6 products to our terrific readers who have helped build our site to what it is today… Just check out our most read posts over the past four years to see what you’ve helped create!
The Design Suite sells for $1,899 / €1,837 / £1,509 and contains over $4,000 in individual tools, including the industry-leading Photoshop Extended, Dreamweaver, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat X Pro, Flash Pro, among others… (see the complete list of programs it contains) If you want to try it out first and install it on your computer, that’s easy as the free trial is available for download for both Windows and Mac. All the tools (and much more) are also available through a free tryout of the Creative Cloud.
Install now: Get all new Creative Cloud 2023 direct download links and free trials.
For this new giveaway, we will be picking two winners. The first prizewinner drawn will receive the full CS6 Design & Web Premium Suite for either PC or Mac, and then the runner-up will receive Photoshop CS6 (worth $699 / €676 / £556) as a consolation prize. Note these are not upgrade or student versions – these are the shrinkwrapped, full commercial English releases of CS6.
[ Note to readers: This will be our last giveaway of boxed software as Adobe will soon be discontinuing boxed versions of Creative Suite.]

I’m really interested in this great giveaway, because I have lots of photos to retouch, and Photoshop is simply the best photo editing software.
I battled with 5 different cancers for the last 5 years and underwent 2 liver transplants due to a ruptured tumor. My Surgeons and Oncologist have released me to return home next week. I plan to set up a website heightening the awareness on organ transplants and cancer.
The website will also offer cancer patients information on available resources to ease their burden during treatment.

Have the winners been contacted yet?
Hi Johan, thanks for your interest. We’re in the process of contacting and confirming our winners – it does take some time because up to 72 hours is allowed for responses, but we hope to be making an announcement soon!
I am finally just throwing myself full on into photography! I was tentative at first, but I have found that as I immerse myself in it, I am gaining a lot of confidence and knowledge fast! I am feeling confident with my photos, but I need to work on post processing — certainly could use Photoshop CS6! Thanks for the offer.
I would use it to become a better web designer! A professional webdesigner needs professional tools such as Adobe products!
We’re pleased to announce the winners of our Spring Creative Suite Giveaway, our last one for CS6! Taking the grand prize is Joyce from Massachusetts, who will receive the CS6 Design & Web Premium Suite. Runner-up is Danna from Colorado, who will be getting Photoshop CS6.
Congratulations to both winners! And thank you all for participating… Be sure to keep an eye out for more big giveaways coming here soon (after the next version is released).
Thank you so much, ProDesignTools!! I received the software and can’t wait to do amazing things with it!!
I would greatly appreciate the ProDesign Tools! I will be taking Adobe Photoshop class and Multimedia class this fall. The ProDesign Tools would be put to very good use, for homework and later getting a job! It’s very difficult with the price of school nowadays, the price of software. Adobe Software is the best there is to accomplish my goals.
