CS stands for Creative Suite. It was rhe non subscription version's of Adobe apps that were often bundled together for a price break. Now Adobe offers CC apps, or Creative Cloud apps. They are subscription based.

It's 2020 now.  As an update,  Creative Suite 4 and earlier are officially dead now.  And Creative Suite 5 - 6 are on life support.  Adobe Customer Care agents are not allowed to help Creative Suite users except with an activation count reset.

 

Product support is available to current software users only and subscribers with a paid Creative Cloud plan.

A pragmatic resume: CS is old technology using perpetual licenses, CC is current technology using a subscription model and offering some cloud space.

CS6 is the latest version of the historical Adobe products (Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, Indesign, Dreamweaver, After Effects,...). You can still use your CS versions of the software you aquired, but there will be no more updates. If your OS does no more support the binaries, you can’t get working solutions. CC took over and is only available on a subscription basis. The subscription model assures that you have always access to the latest versions. A CC subscription gives you access to the last CS6 version of the software. This is important, if you depend on some defunct software, like Fireworks or Encore. But this is without support and as long as your computer supports this.

Under the old Creative Suite software model, you purchased a license at considerable cost (hundreds or even thousands of dollars)I and then a few years later you purchased an upgrade  and then another upgrade and another...   Legacy Creative Suite products are out of date now and not certified to run on the latest Win10 or Mac Sierra OSs.

Under the current Creative Cloud model, you pay a modest subscription fee -- either monthly or yearly and receive FREE upgrades for as long as you remain a subscriber.   The main advantages are:

1) CC software is not platform specific -- you can download & install on Win, Mac or both.  

2) You have ongoing access to the latest software which is compatible with the very latest operating systems.

All work is done locally on your computer.  The Cloud is used to periodically sign in to Adobe to prove that your subscription is active.

CS6 is no longer sold or supported.

Photoshop CC contains  improvements and new features that did not exist in CS6.

You can try Photoshop CC free for 7 days.

Not sure what you mean by skin tone tool, but basic color correction methods have not changed. Tools to help make selections have improved, so if you're dropping background in portraits, CC is better.

If you are using Camera Raw (and in CC you can use Camera raw as a filter) there have been substantial changes in the processing

To be more clear, there are 2 plans associated with the account:

 

  • Document Cloud Free Membership (AUD$40/month)
  • Creative Cloud Free Membership (All apps including Acrobat Pro AUD$77/month)

 

I am trying to work out if they overlap and if we can ditch Document Cloud.
