Dear Lifehacker, I am really interested in converting my pirate Adobe CS6 installation into a legitimate Creative Cloud subscription. Is there an easy way to do this or do I need to rebuild my computer (iMac) entirely? Thanks, Pirate Plunder
First things first –- well done on choosing to purchase legitimate software rather than pirating.
We put this question to the folks at Adobe and received the following response:
Your existing Creative Suite installation will not be affected by installing the new CC applications. For example, you can install and use both Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CC on the same computer.
So, there's no need to remove the CS6 installation. If you want more detail on the ins and outs, check the Creative Cloud FAQ.
