    Loading Photoshop versions

    I have design standard 5.5 loaded on my laptop. What happens if I don't uninstall it and load cs6?

    As far back as I can remember (...and cs6 is definitely going back some years), the newly installed version won't touch the existing version. For almost all purposes, they will act like completely separate programs.

    I have CS6 version 13 Extended. I thought this was the newest version. Is it not?

    Re: Loading Photoshop versions

    I'm seriously annoyed. When I was looking at buying for my classroom, I was looking at CC. Then somewhere along the way I ended up with CS6. That's old! Should I care? Does it matter? What's the deal with the whole cloud thing with CC? Does that make it more of a hassle? Does buying CS6 mean you own it vs. CC which seems to be something you rent?

    Re: Loading Photoshop versions

    I could be wrong, but Adobe stopped supporting CS6 in July of 2015......................as of Jan 9 of 2017, Creative Suite was no longer available for purchase from Adobe.

    I myself ran a boxed version of CS6 Extended which I bought outright and owned up until a week or so ago and then I finally upgraded to CC 2017. I mention this HERE.

    CS6 was stable on my old iMac but from everything I had read it was going to have problems on the newer computers. I bought a 27" Retina Disp iMac running Sierra so I finally threw in the towel. I like having the newer version of Ps so I can finally avail myself of some of the newer features that CS6 lacked.

    I won't advise you on what you should be using, that's strictly up to you. I will do my best to answer any questions though.

    You will have to elaborate on this one.

    Absolutely not! Very easy.

    You can't buy it from Adobe anymore, but if you manage to find a copy, then yes you own it.

    Re: Loading Photoshop versions

    Again, I may be wrong, but you should remember, Adobe no longer supports or updates CS, so you may be stuck with version 13.0

    I'm not sure about the activation server for CS.

    Re: Loading Photoshop versions

    I just needed a simple PS for my classes that won't go too deeply into it, but use it more as just image editing software. I remember CC being this new format where you pay for a license for a certain amount of years, and then I assume, it no longer works. I think that's an awful model, so if getting stuck with this old version of PS means that at least I can use it forever, that would be a big consolation. Can anyone explain the difference in terms of long-term use? Also, if Adobe doesn't support CS6, how might that be an issue? Maybe it's good because I won't keep getting prompts for updates.

    I remember years ago I was at a school where I was using Fireworks for like 8 or 9 years without ever getting a new one. That was nice!
