PSE CS6 - rental

Having decided not to go the PSE route because of the excessive, in my view anyway, cost I have not been paying attention to pricing of late. So imagine my surprise when I discovered yesterday by accident that you can do a monthly rent, for the year long option, of CS6 at 17.85/m. This compares to approx. 34/m previously for CS5.

It looks like it covers all future versions at the same price so it suddenly looks like a possibly viable option.

Anybody done this and found any hidden issues?

cheers

Hec

Re: PSE CS6 - rental

Hi Hec don't know about rental but I have upgraded to Cs6 and can't get it to run properly.Seems a few people are in the same situation so I'd hold off for a bit in case you rent something that doesn't work properly.

Mmmm - interesting. Thanks for the warning. Hadn't decided yet so will hold off until issues are resolved.

Re: PSE CS6 - rental

Hi Ian, it's mainly the interaction between Bridge and Cs6.If I try to launch Cs6 from anywhere within Bridge I get "Bridge has stopped working and has to close".If I click on a thumbnail to load into Cs6 "Bridge has experienced a problem and has to close".This is both x64 & x32.Curiously if I run mini-bridge in Cs6 it will work but not Bridge itself.I have set all my image preferences to point toward Cs6 by default but the programme doesn't seem to like this.
I'm also having a few problems with plug ins but I suspect that's me .
The above Bridge problems are not just mine there are a few reports on this floating about.
Regards Iain

Hi, I have the CS6 Creative Cloud Bundle - so have all the CS6 bits.

I have not tried the Bridge yet - but will try launching it tonight to see if I get any errors.
