    I just ordered CS5 Design Standard, for £238 (student discounts are amazing). At the moment I've been using PSE 8 and InDesign CS4 trial, to create the first issue of our school's magazine.

    The main reason i bought it is because it is my first Creative Suite product and I think all the software included will help make the future issues of my school's magazine even better! Also i consider design as one of my hobbies and this will keep me interested for quite a while.

    What version/program did you buy and why? what was the compelling reason feature that made you spend your hard earnt cash?

    Sorry for the long post :),

    I'll probably the get CS5 premium. I downloaded PS5 this morning and all I can aboot content aware is :eek:. Deleting an area is like magic, the program literally knows what's "behind" it.

    I'm not paying for it, so why not. :p

    Why can't you get the student discount?

    I wouldn't be upgrading from a current version per se. If you catch what I'm saying.

    That is the price for the full version not an upgrade.

    64-but support; and content-aware fill in Photoshop rocks.

    Bought Design Premium CS5 upgrade from my CS4; apparently my academic serial number is upgradeable. As there is no academic upgrade version, I opted for the retail version. This version I can also resell (something you cannot do with the student and academic version).

    anyone know if it's possible to upgrade the student discount version to the retail upgrade version? i've graduated a while ago, so i can't get the school discount on the cs5-dp like i did with cs4. reading through their terms and conditions it appears that it's possible, but i've read from several other sites that it's not.

    i can't afford to pay full price for the suite at the moment, and probably won't be able to buy the cs5 upgrade either for a few months to come.

    also would it be possible to upgrade a cs5 upgrade version with a cs6 upgrade version when that comes out?

    I use CS4 at work and it's just fine for now. I don't see any reason to upgrade for a while.

    I'd be happy to stick with an older version, but I'm moving PPC to Intel, so have to buy CS5 (as I need it for my business).

    Just

    Just about done installing the trial, then we will see...

    I imagine this will be an update I get for at home, I can't imagine I would need to use any of the new features at work...

    But who knows, like I said, we'll see!

    Snap, JUST finished installing, I cant wait to see how this content aware works for me....

    You cannot upgrade from the student version to the full version; you would need to buy a full install license. Do note I did say I had the academic version which is a lot more expensive than the student version.

    I would assuming you can upgrade from a previous upgrade version.

    I will be buying CS5 master collection any day now. I am a college instructor so I get an awesome deal for the Master Collection. I would have been fine with Web Premium but I use After Effects all the time so I really have no choice but to buy the Master Collection.

    We have CS3 here, but I'm thinking about upgrading the office to CS5. I didn't see a huge reason to jump to CS4, but I do for CS5 considering the amount of licenses I have to buy.

    I was hoping to get the free version upgrade to CS5 since I just got CS4 Education version. I will have to wait and see what my options are. If I can get the Upgraded version CS5 Student or if I can get a free upgrade. (btw) I missed the cutoff by one day:mad:

    I'll be getting it shortly. My works at Boston College doing some temp work, and she'll pick up a copy for me.

    I'm on CS3 now, so its high time to upgrade.

    Although we only need two licenses in our office, one for Design Premium and one for Production Premium, I couldn't justify spending money on CS4. But, some of the new features in CS5 (particularly Photoshop and Premiere), the comparatively better (but far from perfect) 64-bit support, and the sunsetting of CS3 finally forced my hand.

    Although I fully intend to recycle our CS3 licenses, since the compatibility issues with Snow Leopard aren't enough to stop any but the most serious users from using it.
