As of March 2015, Adobe no longer sells copies of updated CS6 Photoshop software but instead offers monthly individual subscription plans that range from $9.99 to $49.99. The Photography plan is the least expensive option offered and includes unlimited use of the current version of CS6 Photoshop and Lightroom.
People interested in obtaining cheap copies of older editions of Photoshop can purchase them on eBay, Craigslist and Amazon Marketplace from other individuals. However, Adobe does not recognize these resellers, and does not consider the software they sell valid.
Users interested in using CS6 Photoshop or Photoshop Extended, as it was released in 2012 and without updates, can purchase the software through Adobe. Adobe also offers educational discounts of up to 70 percent.
