  • How on earth do they think they can justify £46 for Cloud in the UK when it’s $49 for US customers :-/

      because in UK they seem to like clouds

    The software industry is messed up. You have 99p apps and £600 software packages where 80% of the functionality overlaps and each new release of MS Office and Adobe Creative Suite is now a confusing repackage with hardly any new features. I live in Asia and many of my peers think i’m insane for paying for Adobe products for home use when you can get them for free on the street. I’m starting to think the same thing.

    I want an Adobe Bundle with Lightroom, Photoshop, Premiere Pro and Dreamweaver which recognises I am a hobby user that uses them once or twice a month . I dont need the 6 other applications I am forced to buy in a bundle and i dont want to pay £600 for each individual application. I want to update every other release without being treated like a criminal and forced to re-buy the product.

    • If you had updated, you’d appreciate the major steps CS5 was over CS4. And I’ve been beta testing photoshop CS6 for a while now and can tell you it IS a significant improvement (mostly) and is a ton faster than earlier versions.

      I don’t like Adobe’s squeeze-em-every-two-years approach to long-term customers, but the product is worth the upgrade in this case.

  • do we know if the price of cs6 photoshop will remain 699 and after tha preorder period?

  • John

    You don’t get it both ways. If everyone bought it legitimately then the price would be lower.

    People used to say that shooting digital was cheaper than shooting film…

    • Steve

      LR4 pricing is looking better all the time.

    Why anyone would want to buy the latest version of this overpriced software is beyond me. I’m disgusted by myself for falling for the hype and paying 100GBP for an old version (CS4) from an Amazon re-seller recently.
    Here’s why:
    1. CS4 is hit and miss at overlaying images when stitching. I have examples of files that stitch perfectly in PTGUI that either will not stitch at all or that are stitched inaccurately in CS4.
    2. Useless lasso tool. The pen selector in NX2 is far more useful, more accurate and can be used on multiple regions of an image.
    3. Poor noise processing – not a patch on NX2.
    4. CS4’s highlight/shadow control mangles colour, unlike NX2’s Dlighting.
    5. After all this time, Adobe still haven’t implemented the RH mouse control. This is very irritating when zooming in/out and makes cloning far more awkward than in e.g. Corel Photopaint. Adobe’s software developers need a slap round the back of the head for this bit of laziness.
    Will I be buying CS6? Not a chance.

      You use a Nikon camera I assume? Keep using CNX2 for the preprocessing, and the other work with TIFF or JPEG in Photoshop.

      show me software which is so easily scriptable, works with 16bit layers, fully color managed, have liquify tool and healing tool, 64bit with own memory management so i can separate memory management from windows swap file.

      then we can start talking.

      capture one for me for anything from raw to fully cropped, color complete photo, photoshop for final touch

    I won’t have survived this competition without photoshop
