    Got wife new IMac24 for Xmas
    My wife is a professional photographer and her old pc was very outdated. We agreed it was time to make the switch to the big leagues so she got an IMac 24 for christmas. Is there any problem ordering an update to CS4 from pc CS3 and getting the Mac format?

    Anyone know?

    Glad I found the forum cuz I am a great pc guy but know nothing about macs...but guess with ya'lls help will learn!

    You can cross grade the PC version to the Mac version of CS3, then get an upgrade to CS4 as normal, just contact Adobe

    Adobe will allow you to perform a cross-grade, or cross-platform upgrade, of your Adobe product, assuming it meets the upgrade qualifications and provided you send them a signed Letter of Software Destruction. The Letter of Destruction states that you agree to delete all copies of the product you are exchanging and also that you will not "sell, transfer, give away, donate, or otherwise distribute the exchanged Adobe product or copies to anyone else."

    You will still need to pay the upgrade cost, and you will need to conduct the purchase via telephone by calling Adobe Sales at 1-800-833-6687 (see Adobe.com for international numbers). The Letter of Software Destruction may be faxed, e-mailed, or snail-mailed to Adobe.

    Thanks for the reply. Let me see if I understand. I have to download the upgrade from cs3 to cs4 for pc. Then I have to call adobe and tell them I need to convert this cs4 upgrade to a mac format. They will send me a full version for mac after my signed agreedment is received? Is there a charge?

    I just thought I could do an upgrade and put mac format in.

    Thanks for the help.

    no just give them a call, they will transfer your CS3 PC over to the mac version and arrange the upgrade to CS4 mac as well
