Upgrading to CS6

Posted 19 May 2012 - 03:51 AM

Hey folks. I was wondering if anyone is thinking of upgrading to Adobe CS6 or will you be waiting or skipping the release. Some of our team members are on CS4 and some on CS5, what would you suggest we do regarding CS6. Will appreciate your advice and any experiences positive or negative you may have had with CS6

I'm still on CS2! It's darn expensive being freelance and trying to keep up..

Depends on a couple of things -

How much do you use it?
What products do you use?
Do you have any need for any of the new features?

Personally I'm still on CS4. I don't have much of a reason to upgrade myself.

Hey folks, regarding CS6, I was wondering, if anyone is considering subscription pricing, and if so are you thinking in month-over-month of yearly subscription , and what may be the reason for this. Also wondering if anyone can share their experience using Adobe's creative cloud. Will appreciate any advice you may have

You already have a topic open for this general topic area. Perhaps better of asking that question in this existing topic -

I'm not sure. I have CS5. But I have half a mind to not upgrade and get into Inkscape, GIMP and Scribus instead. I understand that Adobe isn't allowing upgrade pricing after CS6? I feel that as a customer I am on the long end of a leash. I skipped CS4 and went from CS3 to CS5.

I made the leap to CS6 and outside of Photoshop, I didn't notice a lot of differences. If you use Photoshop a lot, I think it's at least worth it to upgrade that since it's totally been overhauled. InDesign has some GREAT epublishing features that were added, like liquid layout for easy print to epub, PDF forms, linked content, alternate layouts, etc.

In my experience, I've worked on teams where everyone had a different version and it made it difficult to share and collaborate. Eventually we just upgraded everyone to the most recent version (which at the time was CS5.5) and all of our lives were smoother. Go check out the version comparisons on Adobes site and see if the differences seem worth it to you.

Best of luck!
