I took a little trip to Amazonia:

... where CS6 presently retails for $626.77 (plus any applicable sales taxes). Let's assume that the retail price has been stable over the time period of calculations below (I bet that it was not less).

Took a little trip to this Wikipedia web-page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_Photoshop_version_history

... to find the release dates of the following PS CS versions:

CS3 - Apr 16 2007

CS4 - Oct 15 2008

CS5 - Apr 30 2010

CS6 - May 7 2012

So, for good munchkins who eschew those keygens and cracks, the cost of owning the current PS CS over the last 7 years time has been around $34.82 per month(tax not included). Ouch ! ...

But wait, the benevolent Adobe Corporation has a surprise for you. The subscription rate is a mere $19.99 per month (with one-year contract), or $29.99 per month (and you can cancel at any time).

I recommend that you not "look a gift horse in the mouth", RM. Order today and save $ !!! ...

If you own a copy of PS CS, Adobe charges $200 for an upgrade. You don't pay full price each time.

So total cost would be $626.77 + $600 = $1,226.77.  Divide that by 72 months and you get $17 per month.

That is a critical point. This represents a massive increase in costs in the real world

Many people upgrade every other version, resulting in a much lower monthly cost, e.g., CS3 and CS5 for $11.50 per month.
