    How many copies do you need? Probably the best people are whoever you buy your Microsoft licencing from. Adobe do a similar agreement to EES now so you can subscribe rather than purchase outright.

    You don't need to be EES to use the Adobe agreement, they also do standard purpetial licencing. Eitherway your normal MS supplier are going to be the best people to talk to.

    As mostly it is cloud based now thanks to the way adobe is progressing you may want to ensure you will have the bandwidth to cope. Also your volume licencing people are probably the best people to talk too as they will likely get good deals to keep you as a customer.

    We used to buy our microsoft licenses from Civica but now it is through the LA I believe.
    As for bandwidth - it all depends what you need for it.

    Thing is - we don't want or need the whole cloud solution - just photoshop

    If you look here, it should help you out a bit.

    Adobe Creative Cloud | Adobe.com

    My understanding of it is that it requires the internet to install it to each machine, then requires it for activation, then you're ok without the internet. Its just a bandwidth suck for each machine. Imaging may work but when I tried that, it failed.

    As a Creative Cloud user, it isn't all cloud based. It is still installed applications on machines. I don't have it as a network install though.

    Only issue I'd question with Creative Cloud is the updates - how does it handle them across networks? On my single account, updates come out regularly and to install you use the control panel as the user to install them on the machine.

    You can still buy the CS6 package though, so don't *have* to go CC.

    Photoshop Elements 12 may be a better bet as it's much cheaper (about a fifth of the price, judging by the particular catalogue I'm looking at now) and doesn't seem to be tied into the cloud as much as full Photoshop. If you're a primary, I very much doubt you'd need anything in the full Photoshop that wasn't in Elements, and the UI in Elements is going to be less overwhelming for your kids anyway.

    Still talk to your reseller - Adobe's licensing and brackets are just as confusing as Microsoft's, but as a ballpark the highest price is 39.71 from Pugh for each perpetual licence, and you may quality for a cheaper price bracket.

    What about using a free alternative such as GIMP?
    I'm not really a graphics expert but it seems pretty good and quite 'Photoshop-like'

    Photoshop is leagues ahead of GIMP. Whilst GIMP is ok to use (and inkscape), they just do not compare to the ease of use that photoshop has, and the tools that photoshop has.
