Adobe Unveils 6 Creative Suite 3 Editions

You read the head­line right: There are now six””6, half a dozen, even””bundles of new prod­ucts bear­ing the Creative Suite moniker. And if all those lists of appli­ca­tions aren”™t enough to make your head spin, there are also a dizzy­ing array of prices and upgrade paths. Each of the offi­cial Adobe price sheets (four of them for dif­fer­ent mar­kets and soft­ware lan­guages) lists three sep­a­rate prices for retail and two dif­fer­ent upgrade paths, as well as sev­er­al foot­note prices and caveats. Then there”™s the sep­a­rate edu­ca­tion­al prices, vol­ume new and upgrade pur­chase pric­ing, and so on. Good thing you still have a few weeks to plan your purchasing””you”™ll need all that time to pick the right suite and what you”™re eli­gi­ble to pay for it.

Although we”™ll leave it to Adobe”™s cus­tomer ser­vice agents to decrypt the upgrade paths and minute pric­ing options open to you specif­i­cal­ly, here is a cheat sheet of prod­ucts includ­ed in each of the Creative Suite 3 edi­tions and what you can (prob­a­bly) expect to pay””at least for the full retail ver­sions.
