    I'm a complete moron when it comes to this stuff, but my wife got a new Mac with the intentions of continuing to do photo and video editing... she's an amateur at best. But when I was getting ready to order her CS6, I saw all this new CC crap. What's the big differences and which direction should I go for her? She was previously on CS5.

    I have the CC version. It's great for me as a graphic/web designer who dabbles in some video, paying $50/month for every Adobe product and getting every update. I don't know if it would be good for your wife though.

    So basically the 50$ a month gets you all the products on the table? I'm guessing they're essentially the same programs... but the 50 bucks a month does add up, even paying for the upgrades for just CS6 it wouldn't add up to the monthly payment. Are the additional program worth it, or could they be worth it if she put in the time to learn more? Or just stick to CS6 in your opinion?

    If you just dabble, I recommend CS6.

    Hell I'm still using CS6 because I like that version so much.

    Its probably not worth it unless she's a professional.

    The programs are more or less the industry standard in just about every discipline. To be honest, I don't even know if they'll be offering them outside of the CC anymore. There's nothing wrong with the CS5 versions she has, I'd stick with them.

    It's gone... Let's just say our daughter thought top of her old PC tower was where she puts the bubbles. So she went with a Mac this time around. And I'm too lazy to try to pull the hard drives and figure out her old SN and if that can even be transferred from PC to MAC. :lol:

    Hahahaha.

    Looks like you can get Photoshop by itself for $20/month. You could always go that route and look at Mac's stuff fopr video editing (iMovie or event he professional level Final Cut). Hell, Mac has a photo editor too (Aperture).

    :yes: not as intuitive as Photoshop, but most of the functionality is there.

    For vector art, there's also the open source InkScape.
