Mentioning this because it came up recently on another thread here - it seems Adobe has relented a bit on the upgrade policy for PS CS6:

Karen,

Thanks for the update ... guess my procrastination @ CS5 (on CS3) might work out after all.

I upgraded from CS2 to CS5 so at least you will benifit to go to CS6 Rusty. I'm mainly a GIMPer, but do use Photoshop to process my Leica RAWs. I've been going the update route for around a decade now. Think CS5 will be my last since I won't be allowed to go from CS5 to CS8 (or whatever the name will be called by then). If I don't upgrade to CS6, then I won't even be able to go to CS7. Not sure what innovations will occur between CS5 and CS6 (a lot happened between CS2 to CS5 making it more sense to upgrade). Again, I'm not a professional retoucher; just an avid experimental hobbiest. Most photogs really don't need PS either; programs like Lightroom will do most if not all that they require. Photoshop really is an artist's tool imo. Yes, it can be used to photo enhancements as well, but there are cheaper ways such as Lightroom to do them. Not sure if Adobe has decided the same and are changing their business model accordingly, but, just my opinion, they will be loosing a lot of revenue from the amatuers if they decide just to cater to the Professionals that require PS for their jobs (most amatuers won't dish out $200 plus for upgrades every 18 months imo). Of course I could be wrong and I will be just a few of those who no longer go the upgrade route. Time will tell.

The new blur removal seems unlikely to make it into CS6. But if it makes it to CS7, holy-moly, that's an upgrade I suspect most folks will crave.

I agree Aunti. If the deblur feature was to be offered as an update to CS6, I might actually get it. It would take such an innovation to motivate me. Just an update for the sake of an update won't do it.
