    Hi.
    I have the Photoshop 6 Upgrade, which has been upgraded from a previous version.

    I would like to upgrade this version 6 to CS2. I thought I could do this, but then relised my version 6 didn't include a serial number. (it required a previous version serial number).
    I believe newer upgrade versions did.

    I hope I can still upgrade, does anyone know?

    Adobe customer service will help you, just email and ask. I believe the upgrade should be valid, but you have to ask Adobe to get a good answer.

    I think they'd not sell you CS2 since 3 came out, or am I wrong?

    If you do a search back you'll find posts about upgrade paths, you may be unlucky with such an old version, but I remember that they went a fair bit back.

    Ok thankyou both :), my plan was to buy a used copy of CS2 or even CS1.

    I have contacted Adobe, I'll post back with how it goes.

    If you've been with them since version 3 they should give a discount for customer loyalty.

    Well I revieced a reply:

    I thought you simply bought the product from the store, and entered your previous versions serial number, where the installer checks? I was looking to find a used upgrade copy from somewhere.

    It's called an upgrade discount.

    Oh, so there isn't actually an "upgrade" packaged box, it's just the full copy but I need to show them the disks to purchase it?
