    I've recently come across a version of Photoshop 6.0 (yes, its legal :) ).
    I'm looking into upgrading it. CS3 won't let you upgrade from PS6. I've seen mixed info on whether or not you can upgrade to CS2 from PS6.

    Can I get a definite answer on this from anyone?

    I've seen some CS2 upgrades still available and want to make sure before I get one.

    Thanks.
     
  2. Chris,

    I have PS 6.0 (edu version) for the Mac and was in the same boat as you. I contacted Adobe about upgrading to CS3. They said I couldn't directly, instead I had to get CS2 then upgrade to CS3. So, in April, I purchased the CS2 upgrade. I read that if you purchase the older version within 30 days of the new version shipping, Adobe would upgrade you for free. I contacted then and verified this. After jumping through a few hoops and a couple of weeks, Adobe sent me PS CS3 for a nominal shipping fee. Unfortunately, the offer has since expired.

    Bottom line: Yes, you can upgrade 6.0 to CS2. I did not try to directly upgrade 6.0 to CS3, but can attempt to if there are people interested in this.

    Is PS 6 for the Mac the same as PS 6 for Windows? I thought the version numbers were different.
     
  4. Chris,

    I believe they are the same. The current Mac version of PS is version 10/CS3.
