    Comments about Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design & Web Premium for Mac (Student & Teacher Edition):

    Bought CS6 because the teacher edition price is so much more reasonable than retail, and I can't see paying to be on Adobe's cloud. I have used CS2 on the PC for many years now. CS6 has some significant improvements over CS2, and while not cheap, considering all the applications they bundle together, it is extremely reasonably priced. I have mostly used photoshop, illustrator and acrobat pro - they let me do all the things I want to. The programs are very fast, but I admit that I am running it on a mac pro with 16 GB of RAM so it likely reflects my Mac's power more than anything else. In any case, I think that this CS bundle has everything a person would need to be creative and productive for both business and personal uses. I am thrilled to have it.

              My photo editing has been so smooth and simple, and I have discovered some great new features on CS6 that were not in CS5 that I previously used. Totally worth the money to upgrade, and CameraRaw has a really wonderful set of changes.

                Comments about Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design & Web Premium for Mac (Student & Teacher Edition):

                Adobe is creating a stir these days with their move to cloud computing and transition of the Adobe products to a monthly subscription. Will CS ownership options continue or will it become all subcription? Who knows--Adobe is sending out surveys to guage people's feelings on it. I personally prefer owning over renting.If you are just starting out in design, photography or publishing, Adobe sets the standard. Their tools are top-notch but not without a learning curve.Your best bet is to take a class or two to learn the extent of the software's capabilities...it's really amazing.In photoshop I am sincerely enjoying the calebration settings for specific mades/models of cameras and correction factors for specific lenses. Education Version-- I love that Adobe had updated their method for registering educational versions. Previously I had to supply my class registration information to the retailer to then purchase the product. If it so happened I needed the software FOR the class, I was guaranteed to start the class for a week or so before I had the software to use. Now you just buy the ed. version, and Adobe will allow you to register it for a 30-day trial. Anywhere during that time you can submit the proper educational institution paperwork to fully register it. Kudos, Adobe--much more student friendly!

                        It was a big jump from CS 3 to CS 6, but glad I did it, trying to struggle and do work arounds with CS 3 was time consuming in a production standpoint. But having a New powerMac dual core is making my work flow much quicker, worth the investment.. but I got the academic versions- So SAVED a lot!
                        on my main batch of software for a graphic designer/and student of so much.
                        Liked B& H price and got it in about a week reasonable, so have the DVD in case of reinstall. Didn't want to do the download off the internet as probably most people do to save a buck. Think this was best price here for all my searching. Happy price- make happy customer.

                        I bought this product for my classes, I'm a digital arts major. It's been a little difficult to get used to it from CS5, but I love it; it makes everything so much easier and is far more organised than CS5. Though, it is still different and I can't seem to find a lot of what I want to use with it because I'm not used to it, but that will change soon enough.

                            Great product and B&H Photo had great service when I called to ask about the Student version.
                            An easy buy and shipping was fast.

                              Adobe keeps making CS better and better. CS6 is no exception. The new interface is killer but I can't wait for support for the MacBook Pro with Retina display

                                I am a photographer and have occasion to use illustrator and some of the other programs included here for web stuff. I am also a student, so eligible for this edition. Pricing is great to be able to get everything included here. Shipping was fast, and I had no issues with verifying my eligibility through Adobe (pretty much instantaneous after I entered my info online).
