Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why should I buy Adobe Creative Suite 6 instead of an individual component?

A: For each of the Creative Suite 6 editions, Adobe has selected the products that are most useful for specific customers and functions. In most cases, you will find that you use each tool in some capacity throughout the creative process. And even if you don’t use every component now, you have the flexibility to use them later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product - Slow getting serial number June 9, 2012
By Lilly K
Platform for Display:Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
I ordered this product & it came very quickly from Amazon and was exactly as described. I submitted my proof of eligibility online following the instructions in the package and was verified as eligible and would receive the serial number in an email. I waited 8 days and never received the serial number. I spoke ( online) to three Adobe rep.s and sent two emails to Adobe's verification service called identit-e that were unanswered. I did a google search and read that many people have had similar problems with Adobe and Identit-e. I wish I had done more research. Adobe customer service is horrible - you are referred to identit-e. Identit-e does not answer, send, or return emails.

Update: After 9 days I have my serial number from Adobe. I posted on the Adobe Chat forum which eventually lead to receiving the serial number. The software itself is great - nothing else on the market as good. Thanks to the Adobe rep. who helped!

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't download - just get CD in mail October 5, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
There's no doubt that Adobe products are the best for this field. Just don't mess with the downloading of the software. I have a brand new Mac, and still had LOTS of trouble. Attempted to download and install 3 separate times, each time contacting Adobe/Amazon for support. I was just told to try again, that maybe there was an error in the connection to the internet. Amazon reps were very helpful. Adobe reps were very hard to understand (thick Indian accents, read from script, couldn't understand my simple problem). Save yourself the hassle and just wait a few days to receive the CD in the mail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adobe CS6 Standard October 11, 2012

This is all you need to get started. InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. Great programs, very in depth. It will take time to learn all the ins and outs. Worth the money!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great with retina display macbook November 29, 2013
Platform for Display:Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
Was approved as being a student in less than a day. Pretty good deal for $400. Guess I was lucky enough to have bought the Mac CD version before they went out of stock. I'd say grab the download version before they discontinue them and force you to get that Creative Cloud ripoff. Nice surprise to find that photoshop has a built in RAW editor (I believe it used to be separate). Also compatible with retina display after the free updates.

5.0 out of 5 stars These programs have always served me well. July 23, 2013
Platform for Display:Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
As a former graphic designer and now teacher of Chinese medicine, I still use these programs to design my teaching materials. I can create much more interesting materials with a professional look that I try to instill in my students for their careers.

Excellent condition. Product is just as described but I haven't had the time to learn it well. I think once I learn the basics, I am going to enjoy it and use it more.
