Cheap Photoshop CS6

Copies are now often available on Ebay for less than 10. It includes Camera RAW which opens must RAW files for processing.

Re: Cheap Photoshop CS6

CS6 was an expensive package costing several hundreds of pounds, why so cheap? Have you purchased and is it functioning ok?

Re: Cheap Photoshop CS6

I've once bought Photoshop on eBay for a cheap price but unfortunately it was a pirate copy. For 10 I think you are bound to be disappointed.

That's my gut reaction too. Sounds too good to be true.

For something good, cheap and legal try Affinity Photo. Does most or all of what you'd ever want to do in Photoshop. Under 40.

My experience too.

I was refunded by Ebay, but there was a deduction because I had unsealed the package - which I had to do to try it!

The one I am using was sold as a "spare copy". I suspect the seller did not understand the principle of a backup copy on disk. It was a bit more than 10 but well under 100. Whatever the price was, it stood out in the search results as being well below those of the other listings.

It works perfectly*, even when I migrated from W7 to W10.

* As I use it, which is mainly as a host for Topaz plugins. I use PS for basics, such as brightness & contrast and for resizing. I occasionally use High Pass or Smart Sharpen filters.
