Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Who is CS6 Master Collection for?

A: CS6 Master Collection is ideal for small design shops that need to nimbly deliver across media and is essential for large media, advertising, and other companies that need to equip their design and development teams for any creative challenge. Educational institutions also find Master Collection an efficient way to outfit their classrooms and learning labs with the broadest array of professional tools for their students.

Q: I already own CS5.5 Master Collection. Why should I upgrade to CS6?

A: The Master Collection delivers all-new versions of key Adobe professional products, including Photoshop and Illustrator, which were not updated for CS5.5. Significant performance improvements across almost every component are a highlight of CS6 Master Collection, with native 64-bit support and GPU enhancements that give you full advantage of your computer’s power. Powerful new creative options enable the crafting of fluid, adaptive designs across all media. Reach new audiences on the latest platforms.

Q: I already own some CS5 or CS5.5 products. When does it make financial sense to upgrade to Master Collection?

A: You can save money when you upgrade to CS6 Master Collection or another Creative Suite edition instead of buying individual components. Generally, if you are planning to purchase three or more individual components and they are not available in another suite edition, then Master Collection can make financial sense.

1.0 out of 5 stars Paid 2,600 and it expired in one year September 24, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Disc
When my Master's CS6 expired I immediately contacted support, the guy was a jerk, I repeatedly had to ask for a manager, the manager gave me the run around too. Here is a copy of my tech support.

Notes from Customer

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 10:34:13 AM PDT
Wow, when I look at the Proof of Purchase it clearly shows that the master's collection was purchased on 08/07/2012 at 2:28PM
and that I purchased CS6 Design Web Premium on 8/07/2012 at 1:17PM,
So I don't understand how you can say that you don't see the purchase date.
I am going to do as you say, and contact the reseller and demand a refund. I am also going to post this on amazon and every other website that sells your product so that people know that you are lying about not being able to see the purchase date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the technology faint of heart May 11, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Disc
Even basic creative editing software can be overwhelming until you become familiar with the workspace and tools.

Adobe products are mostly geared to serious hobbyists and professionals. There are so many tools, panels, palettes, and menus that it can quickly become overwhelming. Expect to read a lot, watch videos, and ask for help. Even after using this for a couple of years, I keep a shelf full of reference materials nearby. No matter how familiar you are with the software, there is always more to learn.

If you are dabbling you might want to stick with Paintshop or Elements. Their workspace is not completely intuitive either, but the investment is less. The last time I used those programs was when PSP X2 was out, so it has been awhile. I liked both. I preferred PSP for photography but found elements had cleaner programming and did cleaner extractions , etc. it also let me be lazier because the filters and actions did the work for me. I am glad that I started with PSP because it was a good place to learn with less investment. It forced me to learn the basic building blocks because it was not as feature rich as Photoshop. Remember, even though actions and filters are nice and can really improve your work flow and efficiency, they are not perfect. If you do not understand the basics of what they are doing, you will be frustrated because you can not correct the results you get from them.

CS6 is supposedly the last boxed edition you can buy. They are moving strictly to a subscription based model. I last purchased cs5.5 and installed it. I only got the Design Premium because the full edition was a bit expensive for me. I am a hobbyist. I am not an industry professional and do not sell my services.

4.0 out of 5 stars More a question than a review. April 18, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I am on the verge of buying the CS6 master suite and want to know if 7 is about to come out. I couldn't get a answer to that question from Adobe themselves....but I noticed there were only 10 versions of 6 left to buy in amazon, which usually means that another version is on its way. Has anyone heard? I would certainly hate to pay over 2000.00 for an obsolete out of the box item.
Please help me out if you know.
