Re: Windows 7 64bit & upgrade from CS2 to CS5

Adobe only goes back several rev levels to qualify for an upgrade. When CS5 was selling you could have bought an upgrade from CS2. Now owners can only upgrade to CS6 with CS3 and CS4 through Dec. 31 after which time they will need to pay the full outrageous price for the software.

I have heard it said that there are online websites where one can buy and download older versions of software including the installation key. Most people are forced to upgrade Photoshop to get the current version of the ACR RAW file converter from Adobe. For many is not most photographers Adobe Lightroom is a better and much less expensive alternative to Photoshop.

CS4 will run on a 64-bit OS but it was not until CS5 that code was written to optimize the Photoshop application to make use of not only the larger memory address space but also the multi-core processors of the new CPU's from Intel and AMD.
