No worries, Bruce. Thank you very much.
I searched a bit today, enough to get me thinking that I need to upgrade my OS as well as the domino effect of having to upgrade everything else I use. But I use Adobe products heavily, and it would behoove me to think more about this. Yes, I qualify for the educators discount (at least I did in the past). 

No, obviously I didn't sign up for the CC. I just wasn't ready to get my head around it. This is an exciting summer/autumn/winter for me. Loads to do, really exciting projects, so I feel like an octopus with two tails (mixing metaphors is my specialty) 

Cheers to you, and thanks,

Sorry, Linda.  I'm on call this weekend and was in Portland taking care of patients.

Apparently, CS6 is still available as a stand-alone version.  B&H has CS6 available for $300 for teachers, $670 for the unwashed masses.  See here:
There is a note on B&H that all CS6 upgrades are only available from Adobe.  Going to, one can still upgrade from CS5.5:

Unfortunately, trying to find the price of the upgrade I found myself in a (too typical) Adobe online merry-go-round.  I suspect the quickest way would be to give them a call on Monday.  I've always been surprised when calling the Adobe help desk, as the helpers 1.) actually speak English, and 2.) seem able to answer questions straightforwardly.

There is, more over, an option to purchase Photoshop CC and Lightroom in the cloud for $10 a month, in perpetuum.  Or as "perpetuum" as Adobe may deem necessary.  For which currently I wouldn't give you a nickel.  A personal opinion.

I take it you didn't sign on for the $50 a month CC suite?

Bruce, as of my last question to you. I have been looking on line for the answer of availability of CS6....
