Default I bought Photoshop CS5 Extended

Well, I just bought Photoshop CS5 Extended, even though CS6 will probably be out soon. I got the extended version for no good reason. Well, I assumed it would give me an animation interface for GIFs. Which I don't need because I have a special program just for that. And it turns out that the regular version added that anyway. But gosh, now I can do 3D stuff, which I never do. Not to mention that I don't even need the new features in the regular version, except that some of them are cool to look at. And my health is still so bad I can't do any focused or complex photo work anyway. But what the heck. Gotta keep current.

And to make life easier I signed up at Lynda.com to take a course about the new features. And also watched the one about new features in CS4, because I skipped that version. So now I'm all set. And if there is a major global catastrophe, and for some reason I need to adjust some photos to keep going, I'm ready.

Probably not a bad thing to get Ps 5 in hand. Sounds like Adobe's view of the future is we should all become software subscribers, and if we insist on buying, the upgrade treadmill will run faster and be more expensive.

Did you snag the holiday discount on the upgrade?

They should be. At Corel, you can upgrade from several versions prior to get the same upgrade price. Not so at Adobeland.

I wonder if they are going to do the same thing with Elements.

Have they ever let you update Elements for a lower price? I thought every time I had gotten a new version I paid for new copy, no discount.

I don't think any version of Elements has been sold as an upgrade.

I've always seen upgrade prices on copies of Elements from retail stores. I think it's usually in the form of a rebate.

I don't have Elements. I assumed they gave an update discount, but I guess they don't.

I used to think Microsoft and Quark were examples of ruthlessness. But it looks like Adobe is taking the prize.
