    I own the physical software for CS6 and was wondering if the upgrade to CS7 is $299 or more might it be wise to just purchase the discounted creative cloud license for 29.99/mo/yr. Are than any advantages besides software full out purchase cost provided by creative cloud that would be an on-going benefit?

    I just went through the same thought process and ended up calculating that the yearly subscription is actually the same as buying an upgrade. CS 5.5 Prod Prem to CS6. So as far as an impact to the bank account and the return on investment, it was a good decision. Key in my mind were full access to all apps not just the Prod Premium suite. The big one for me is being able to install and run the apps on both my main PC workstation and my Macbook (not at the same time). That was a major limitation of the boxed installers–limited to one platform.

    Will it allow you to install the software on more than one machine with one license? Do frequent transfers? I edit in my home office but sometimes I’m on the road and I take another desktop in a roadcase with me. At present I’m able to do that. – B

    Yes as long as they are both not running concurrently, as far as I recall from my chat with Adobe tech support. The main thing for me was to be able to have the flexibility to work on my home office PC workstation and then when needed my Macbook.

    From my experience this weekend, the Adobe tech support has been very prompt. You can get onto the Adobe site and initiate a chat with tech support to get official confirmation before buying.

    [Brian Cooney] “Will it allow you to install the software on more than one machine with one license? “

    You can install the applications on two computers per Adobe ID. You can install it on a Mac and a PC, if you like.

    [Brian Cooney] “Do frequent transfers? I edit in my home office but sometimes I’m on the road and I take another desktop in a roadcase with me. At present I’m able to do that. – B”

    You can install applications on even more computers and activate new computers as you need them, as long as only two are activated at any one time.

    Here’s a little tip: currently, when you activate a third computer, it deactivates the other two computers. You can then reactivate one of the other two computers (or activate a second “road rig” you plan to take with you, etc.).

    The activation process is very simple. All done in the Help menu.

    Here’s a good forum I found addressing the pros and cons of migrating over.. https://blogs.adobe.com/jnack/2013/03/half-a-million-people-now-subscribing-to-creative-cloud.html

    Thanks Kevin. So if I understand correctly there is no change in the way the licensing performs over the previous option of owning the software outright.

    [Brian Cooney] “So if I understand correctly there is no change in the way the licensing performs over the previous option of owning the software outright.”

    Actually, the ability to install your membership across platform (OS X and Win) is completely new. Also, if I understand correctly, the ability to switch the activated license from computer to computer is much easier. Both of these options have been available from Avid for sometime and, from my POV, are a very welcome addition to CS.

    Chris is correct. Cross-platform licensing is available with the Creative Cloud while it is not available with standard licensing. If you like, there is more discussion on that here: https://forums.adobe.com/message/4397847#4397847
