| p.1 #10 · Adobe Taking Phone Orders-CS6 Upgrade |
Forget about the whole cloud thing for a moment. Why do you need to upgrade to CS6 anyway?
I'm on CS6 mostly because it was my last chance to upgrade from CS3. But, even if I had only gone to CS5 (which I used @ demo while waiting for CS6 to release), it would be more than sufficient for what PS does. People are freaking out about the inability to upgrade past CS6 unless you've got the cloud ... why do you need CS6 or the upgrades beyond CS6?
Okay, new camera's, new lenses ... LR or Elements should be able to handle that with ease @ future stuff. Why will we really need Adobe's "latest & greatest" of a program that is the industry standard and already is very mature. Honestly ... I could go back to CS3 and still do my edits. Granted the 64bit vs. 32 bit difference might be felt a little and the RAW processor is different.
But, if you've got LR4, you've essentially got the CS6 RAW processor already. What is so incredibly compelling that you've got to have the "latest upgrade" to Photoshop via the cloud subscription or upgrading from CS5 to CS6 right now (other than "last chance")?
Am I missing something here ... besides "Adobe pisses me off." ... what is it about your current PS that prevents you from doing your work with it? If you haven't upgraded to CS6 already ... gee, did you really need it that badly that you should be 'freaking out' over the cloud BS?
Just sayin' ... the hate bandwagon is fun to get on ... but how does it change the fact that you've already lived your entire life without CS6 and the latest PS version?
Some of the most compelling closing techniques to get someone to buy what you're selling is called "impending doom" and/or "take it away" ... and a lot of people are "swallowing the hook" on this one when they should just swim right on past it.
BTW ... thanks to the OP for the update @ still taking phone orders @ last chance for those who want CS6. Some folks like the changes to CS6, others prefer CS5 ... most learn to live with either just fine ... but there are some quirky diff's. Imo, if you've already got LR4 and are on CS5 ... I'm not seeing a lot of need for CS6. CS4 or earlier ... get CS6 while you can.
