I'm running Creative Suite 3 on one computer, and I was planning to install Photoshop CS6 (I'm undecided about CC, but that is a topic for another time). I infrequently use the other programs in CS3 but do find them occasionally useful, but not useful enough to pay for the entire CS6.
Can I run Creative Suite 3 and Photoshop CS6 on the same computer without issues? Will Photoshop CS6 install over top the CS3 version, or will they exist peacefully as separately-installed software? All of my software is legal, with no hacks.
I'm sorry I can't say if your combination will work well. I do have Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CC on the same SSD. Everything seems to be running fine but I just recently installed Photoshop CC so I have not done exhaustive testing.

You might ask Adobe if it is ok.
I was late in messaging Adobe today, so the question will have to wait until Monday. Thanks for the feedback.
I have CS3, CS4 and CS6 all installed on the same machine and Photoshop has no issues whatsoever. Bridge however does behave a little strange. Regardless of what version of Bridge you're running at the time, it'll try to open the image in the latest version of Photoshop you have installed. So if, for whatever reason, you want to open an image in CS3, you'll need to specify you want the image in Photoshop CS3 (i.e. right click>Open With>Photoshop CS3 - for PC).
