I have a big problem. Last year I bought a CS4 Design Premium package for the PC. However, I am switching systems to Apple (iMac) in a month and my CS4 for the PC won't work on an Apple Mac system. Buying new photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign is more expensive than I can afford. Is there a way to change or upgrade from PC to Mac? I hope anyone can help me.

Kind regards

Yes its called a Cross-Grade. You need to call Sales dept at Adobe There may or may not be some fee involved. Most software companies allow it. You may be asked to Destroy your PC Disk. Or

You and buy Parallels for your new Mac then install windows on the Parallels Partition (if you already have a Separate Windows install DVD). To get up and running if you don't have a packaged version (not OEM) of windows would be buy buy the cross Grade. If you have a Packaged version of Office laying around then buying Parallels for the Mac would be cheaper.

In years (versions) past, the X-platform upgrade was for the same price as the single-platform upgrade. By that, I mean that if the Mac InDesign to CS4 from CS3 was US$200, then the PC InDesign CS4 to Mac CS4 was also US$200. This has not been the policy with some software companies, which charged full price, when one changed platforms. Adobe always seemed to want to make it easy.

Good luck, and do check things out, as policies can change.
