Hello, I have a question. Since I was searching Photoshop cs6 for some trials/experiments, I 've found that on Etsy Shop is full of people that sell Photoshop cs6 or older.
 I would like to know (since asking to many of the sellers on Etsy, they tell me that they are authorized and are genuine softwares, I would like to know , these are genuine sellers? Have special permission ?
If are on Etsy, they should be safe or adobe have a certain tolerance to let them to sell the old photoshops? 
Here the links (full of Photoshop softwares, which one is genutine permission from Adobe? Some sellers says sometimes ' people do this scam on different sites, but in the end there are serious sanctions for it. The right to choose is yours, I am selling this product with permission' .
So since I read that Adobe there's authorized Platinum, Gold and Certified Resellers , I would like what is a reselled (in Italy) that could sell genuine Photoshop cs6? And what are exactly these resellers? The old copies dvds belong to these resellers can be sell? 

If these sellers are not genuine, why are on Etsy? 

<Link Removed>

Thank you in advance for help!

Any and every copy of CS6 sold now is a pirated/illegal copy. That's not a probability; that's a dead certainty. CS6 has not been legally available anywhere for many years.

 

No serial numbers have been issued since 2015 or so, and the existing serial numbers have been used long ago.

The links are for digital downloads, which you can easily get. It's the serial number that gets flagged by Adobe. You won't get that until after you make the purchase. Then good luck getting your money back. 

Adobe doesn't and can't police the internet for scammers. 

You have been warned that they are not legit. You seem to be arguing that they might be. 

Photoshop Elements is currently $70 US. There are other free open-source options available too.

If are illegal, is strange there are so many sellers that are free to sell it on Etsy. Etsy is a reliable marketplace. Also if are illegal, Etsy itself after the report should have take down the sales but seems are still there. If they dont have permission there would be many people that really dont know is illegal and think are genuine copy. Or maybe Adobe is a bit more tolerant ? Or maybe they have a sort of permission?

Thanks again for the help

There is a whole vast ecosystem out there selling illegal CS6 software. Anyone can find an illegal copy in two minutes.

 

All Adobe can do is flag the cracked serial numbers as they are notified. You can report it here: https://www.adobe.com/genuine.html 

 

As for Etsy and other markets, it's probably not in their interest to dig too deep, as long as they get away with it.

 

Bottom line: Don't even think of buying. You will get burned.

I mean... if is reported to Adobe they will make close those sells? If adobe dont close them maybe means they are a bit tolerant ? Many people are purchasing that, thinking is genuine. 

I wonder if Adobe , will release a more lite version of Photoshop cs6 around 100$ just like Photoshop elements? This could be useful as many people get it there because they can t afford 700$ software. Maybe it would be great ! I think I will get Adobe Photoshop Elements from Adobe site. See? The software with prices around 100 or 150 $ sell good.

 

Ops what mean You will get  burned?

 

Thanks a lot for all the infos!

Yes  I perfectly understand this,  but I also see a problem,  that one meet when one need to learn a software for graphic, the interviewers will ask people Only Photoshop. Photoshop seems more good interface to use, more brushes and custom contents available on the net and fast to use all tools and panels.

Photoshop cs6 is only subscription I found out last year, and at the end of the years it will be like to have a temporary  software like a rent . Who work with it all days of the year can be a solution the subsctiption and also surely they prefer to use it a lot. Of course theres the possibility to have always updates yes, but this is for professional that need updates so it could be good solution very great the subscription for who want to change software often by update. But for who is not in this condition or professional use and use photoshop for learning some tools   , play with it,  at home for personal use projects and meanwhile learn to use it, it would not be convenient to pay a software on  rent (sometimes I try to image, what would happening if each software we use will ask also a subscription? It would be very very hard for all  to pay each month and piracy would increase. There would be new solutions to permit to all to find a way to purchase softwares buy at once , and special tools and updates for who have professional use of it, Adobe can count on companies and professionals the subscriptions, but it would be good also have the real Photoshop Cs6 for who want to use it personal home and not need to update or special features. If was so, I would like to spend even 500 $ or 600$ to purchase Photoshop for once.

Even if adobe costs 20 or 30 $ monthly , (with all the expenses of month is not little after all) but at the end even with little prices , one will spend 500 or 600 $. So it would be good  if we could find both solutions to have Photoshop, let both categories of people (professionals or personal users) to subscribe to cs6 or purchase it pay at once.

 

I will try Adobe Elements but is not like Cs6  in many things, unfortunately. 

 

The category people like me I belong is:

not a professional , no use of special features or services and not an use of  photoshop  , not a student, but an housewife that would like to use photoshop once in a while or a couple of hours in the weekend, so in cases similar I think one can see that is not fit with  subscription. I hope it could be a good solution for everyone, but unfortunately its very hard , we wish there was a way to purchase one time only Photoshop as is the standard software and many tutorials are done with it. Photoshop is a standard like to buy bread 😅   

 

But I have a question, photoshop elements is sold 70$ in Usa? In Europe seems around 100 $? Just to know if there are some offers that Im not aware or maybe only in Usa ? Thanks for the informations

Why do you keep mentioning CS6?

 

Technically, no version of Photoshop is "like" CS6--the interface and features have evolved over the last decade. The software Photoshop CS6 is actually version 13; the current version is Photoshop 2023 and is actually version 24. 

 

Adobe, and any authorized resellers, do not sell old versions.

You are correct. It's in the fine print at the very bottom that many folks don't notice. The offer is available only in the U.S. and Canada and the discount ends on Sep 4.

PSE does have a 30-day free trial and you might start with that.

Look, you can choose to ignore reality if you will. That's your choice. You've been advised that this is pirated software, with all the implications thereof, that's all we can do. The rest is up to you.

They do: Photoshop Elements for people that want a perpetual license. It has less features than the full Photoshop but is surprisingly powerful. The full Photoshop can be subscribed to for $10/month US.

Thank you for the informations, I will do my best to learn adobe photoshop elements but I have a question, I'm currently testing the trial of Photoshop Elements following some tutorials on youtube.

Now, I would like to use my tablet and I need to use the brush and also press ALT key often (to pick up the base color and then paint again over a picture). With pse is possibile to use a tablet and associate a specific key to the button ? I check on windows and there's no option.. usually it's the software one use, that should add this option when one want to use tablet?
I'm confused , I hope is possible to do it! 
Thank you again for the help!

AFAIK, Photoshop Elements is not available for a tablet, unless you are referring to a Microsoft Surface or similar system.

Valentina, we covered this pretty extensively already and this seems like a repost looking for different answers than you received before https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-ecosystem-discussions/questions-and-suggestions-about-photo...

I'm locking this post and urge you to keep on one thread and refrain from multiple posts asking the same question in various means.
