Adobe Announces Photoshop Upgrade Pricing for CS3 and CS4 customers

In this post from November, I reported Adobe’s announcement that only customers on Photoshop CS5 would be eligible for upgrade pricing on CS6 when it comes out in the first half of this year. (I also reported on the alternative Cloud version and how that should factor into your upgrade decisions.) What this meant was that CS3 and CS4 customers were supposed to upgrade to CS5, right before the release of CS6, in order to get upgrade pricing.  This caused a lot of frustration among customers, so Adobe has now revised its policy.
