  1. Hi – I am a pro photographer and use Bridge & Photoshop for everything! I see the Photographers Bundle ($9.99) includes CS6 & Lightroom. Does is also include Bridge? Bridge is essential to a photographers workflow allowing us to sort, batch edit, and make correction through Camera Raw before even opening Photoshop. I’d be so surprised and disappointed if Bridge is NOT included in the Photography Bundle. But if not, how can I go about getting Bridge & Photoshop CS6 without having to pay $50 for a ton of other programs I will never use.

  2. My purchased ordinary version of cs6 seems to have turned into extended without me knowing. I just want ordinary cs6, how can I get back (stop the trial?)

    Thanks

    Thanks for this. Unfortunately ‘deactivate’ is greyed out and the start screen option to register does not work because the system does not recognise CS6 as installed, only CS6 extended, the license code is thus inapplicable. Maybe I should just uninstall- but seems draconian, or see what happens when the fictitious trial period ends. The windows uninstaller only lists CS6.

    Thanks for any help

  4. Hi.
    I have just downloaded the latest version of Photoshop CC, and the 3D option does not work. None of the buttons are greyed out, and they are readily available, but for some reason, my compliant laptop. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why the 3D isn’t working? I would appreciate any input to sort this issue out. Many thanks.

  5. Hi,
    We currently have Adobe Photoshop CS6 version 13.0 x32 which is not the extended version. Is there a way to obtain the a patch or update our Photoshop to the extended version or is the Extended version only available as a completely separate suite?

    • Hi KeeKee, as of the start of October 2015, Adobe finally removed the online sale of CS6 from their website… The reason is because the software is 3½ years old and increasingly unsupported; they stopped releasing updates for it some time ago as the newer CC quickly grew and took over. With the CS6 software EOL and end of support, there are no updates, no bug fixes, and no guarantees it will run on future operating systems. So at this point we’ve stopped recommending it as a good or viable option going forward.

      If you want to get Photoshop (Extended) and Lightroom, then the CC Photography bundle includes the latest-and-greatest releases of both of these tools (plus ongoing upgrades to them) for US$9.99/month. No previous Adobe software ownership or upgrade is required to receive that price.

  6. I have Photoshop CS5 Premium, but then I ‘upgraded’ to CS6 Standard. Does this prevent me from being able to buy and install the CS6 Extended version?

    • So you’re saying you would throw away your previous upgrade to CS6 Standard and then try to “reupgrade” and pay again to go from Photoshop CS5 to CS6 Extended?

      Don’t think something like that would work because your CS5 serial number was already used for a previous upgrade… You can’t get discounted upgrade pricing from the same older license key more than once.

      But the bigger question is, why would you even want to do that? CS6 is end-of-life, over 4 years old and receives no further support or updates or fixes. Adobe stopped selling it on their website over a year ago, but before that such an upgrade would cost $350.

      Did you know you can have the latest & greatest version of Photoshop CC for under $10 a month, together with Lightroom, with ongoing upgrades included for both tools?

      All software has a usable lifetime, especially if it already dated (and static).

  7. Will the Photoshop CC install without me being required to set it up all with my CS6 Standard settings again from scratch.

  8. I want to transfer my photoshop cs6 extended from my old Macbook Pro to my new macbook 2016 pro. How do I do that please. When dealing with instructions, please go slowly and be clear on each step in the the download process. I have lost my disk because it accidentally broke.

    Thank You

  9. I would like to maintain my old version of cs6 without purchasing the extended version. I felt it was high priced at that time. Now you want to force me into the extended version. I do not want or require the extended version. Give a guy a break!

  10. If anyone is looking for the Animation window in CS6 – now called Timeline – you don’t need the Extended version. (Although for the 3D features, I believe you do.) I found it hidden in an inconspicuous place…

    In Photoshop CS6, click on: Window / Extensions / Mini Bridge – it shows Timeline – then click on Create Frame Animation. You need a document open first.

    – You’re welcome.
