4.0 out of 5 stars Suite contents and license info May 7, 2013
By Graham
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
The product description above doesn't list the suite contents, but according to Adobe's website, CS6 Design Standard consists of:
* Photoshop CS6
* Illustrator CS6
* Acrobat X Pro
* Bridge CS6
* InDesign CS6
* Media Encoder CS6

The inclusion of Acrobat X Pro is welcome news, although that is now one revision behind, since Acrobat XI is now available.

The EULA license allows you to install a second copy of the software on a home computer or a laptop, for your own use. You can transfer the software over to a new computer, after first deactivating it on the old machine. In my case, that means I should be able to avoid the Adobe Cloud monthly licensing regime for a good many years, as I transfer this one licensed copy across to my newer PCs!

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything is there. August 9, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I did not have the serial number issue. Mine is found on the back of the smaller box that contains the DVD. Amazon was the lowest price of all reputable online vendors.

The serial number is just a sticker on the smaller box. I could easily see a manufacturing error missing this.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is Adobe CS6 March 21, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I've used the Adobe suite of products for a long time. I started with Photoshop, then CS1. I didn't upgrade until CS4 came along (I was in art school and able to get it almost free.) I don't like pirated software and the academic versions clearly state they are for students and teachers, so I wanted to get a legit copy for my professional use. The full blown package is just more than I wanted to spend and I don't like the Creative Cloud endless payment model In my opinion the products are mature and upgrades don't really buy you that much at this point. I anticipate this version will meet my needs for years to come. The Creative Cloud route would have cost me the amount of the purchase price of this package in two years or less.

The Design Standard package met my needs and I was able to purchase the "perpetual license" i.e., the program on a disk. The Adobe products contained in this package are great from my perspective. Not cheap by most standards, but certainly powerful creative products. I love the product, but hate the price.

2.0 out of 5 stars I loved the product when I purchased it July 28, 2014
By Taryn
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I loved the product when I purchased it. However I have recently purchased a new computer becasue the other one was old and slow and not very usable anymore. This product is NOT compatible with the default windows 8 screen resolution. the pallets and tool bars are so tiny they are mostly unusable. I have looked up how to fix the problem and there is not a solution. a very expensive product and computer all for naught.
