I am just now learning about this Photoshop Creative Cloud, and it's a bit confusing to me. I was looking to upgrade from CS5 (I have the disk) to CS6, but seems I missed the boat on getting it on disk. And I certainly don't want to lose use of current Photoshop and layered files.
If I'm happy enough with CS5 on disk, will I still be good working with it, saving and storing layered images as .psd, image manipulation and all that? Or do they put the voodoo on my existing software and files.

You can still buy CS6 as a disk with a perpetual licence. But at this stage, Adobe are saying it will be the last version available on disk. Also any new features will not be updated to CS6 users ... only the Creative Cloud will get updated to new features.
(Adobe have said that they will supply patches for CS6 for some time - can't remember their exact working)

Yea, I see that I can buy CS6 for the full retail price. But I have CS5 and only need an upgrade, which does not appear to be an option. Looks like choice is to purchase it at full price or sign up for perpetual payments, so long-standing customers who have continued to up-grade are SOL. Unless I'm missing something.

Go to this page:
Choose either Photoshop CS6 or Photoshop CS6 Extended and click the "Buy" link. This should bring up some options including:
I want to buy: "Full"
... is default, but if you click the little down arrow you can select "Upgrade".
When you choose the "Upgrade" option and the product you are upgrading from you should see CS6 Upgrade for US $199.00 and US $399.00 for PS CS6 Extended Upgrade.
Does this make sense?

Interesting factoid... all the attendees to the Windows Build conference got a free 1 year sub to Adobe Creative Cloud. Windows Build is a conference Microsoft puts on about every year or so for Windows developers.

My 2008 iMac was laid to rest this week. I had the Adobe Elements 6 on it and I am finding out the Elements history from 6 to the current 11 hasn't been an improvement. The 11 is more like iPhoto. Grrr So what is similar to Elements 6? Photoshop CC. So let's do the math... I purchased Elements 6 in 2008 for maybe $125.00. Today to use Photoshop CC for five years it would cost me $1,199.40 or I could purchase the CS6 for $699.00 for the life of this new computer. Does anyone have suggestions for other developers that create similar products? I agree CC stands fro "Cash Cow"
