Photoshop CS5

  1. Hello All,
    Quick question...
    I am able to buy Photoshop CS5 from someone for pretty cheap...
    I was wondering if anyone knows how long Adobe would le me use that version until I'd have to migrate the the new "cloud" service.
    Thanks for your time,
  2. Adobe cannot force you to upgrade at all. You could use CS5 till the end of times.... Whether the transfer of this license will be acceptable according to Adobe's terms and conditions is another story, but assuming it is, there is nothing forcing you into the Creative Cloud.
  3. I have heard stories (on here, as it happens) of people using very old versions of Photoshop who have been unable to conntect to the activation servers to reactivate the software after a system crash and reinstall; but aside from that, CS5's licence is described as a "perpetual" licence, hopefully for good reason.
  4. For low to medium resolution files CS5 is fine. But for larger ones (100mb+) CS6 is much faster for some functions, especially when using "Lens Correction."
  5. Well, thank you for your time Gentlemen, that's all good news to my ears....Pascal....
