Adobe changing upgrade eligibility
From the end of 2011 Adobe customers may only be able to upgrade from the latest version – so when CS6 is released only CS5 products will be eligible for upgrade pricing.
So what can you do?
• If you intend to purchase new licenses rather than box product you can purchase upgrade protection. This lasts for 2 years and is renewable thereafter. The additional cost at time of purchase is reasonable and is ideal for those who need the latest version at all times.
• If you have Creative Suites 2, CS3 or CS4 you have until the end of the year to upgrade to the latest CS5.5. This option is worthwhile for those on older versions who want the latest release now or those with licenses that want to then add upgrade protection.
• Otherwise next time you need a new version you will be paying for a new licence or version. This is an option for those who don’t want new versions very often and are willing to live with a larger cost every time a new version is needed.
