Inform users, upfront, what is being added, what is being deleted, what bugs are fixed and what features are enhanced. 

Adobe Photoshopcc staff needs to drill down on the entire upgrade process i.e. upgrade from one version to another.

It's my understanding that if I upgrade to Photoshop beyond 14.2.1 (14.2.1 20140207.r.570 2014/02/07:23:00:00) x64, I will have to re-install all of 3rd party plug-ins - which would be a pain - that is not customer friendly.

The page to find out about GPUs needed for certain features is a pain to navigate. When Apple announces the next refresh of its laptop line, from Air to PowerBook, it would be nice to know which ones will be powerful enough, up front, to run the GPU-dependent features.

That page is both good and bad. The info is good, even though I'm disappointed in the inability to carry over 3rd party plug-ins. 

During the upgrade process, this information should be presented without having to move out of the upgrade workflow steps.

Thanks for the feedback. With regards to plug-ins: https://blogs.adobe.com/crawlspace/2016/06/faq-photoshop-cc-2015-5-now-available.html#plugins 

The good news is we’ve been working with 3rd party plug-in developers to use a shared Creative Cloud location for plug-ins. This will allow their plug-ins to load in future versions of Photoshop CC (e.g. CC 2016/2017) without having to re-install.
