    No, photoshop CS is the newest version of Photoshop.

    Adobe, rather than calling it 8, decided to call it CS, in conjunction with all their applications, in a new suite called. yup you guessed it
    Creative Suite

    Adobe premiere CS
    Adobe illustrator CS
    Adobe After effects CS

    ..etc.

    It is a full featured version of Photoshop, nothing like elements at all.

    Yeah, its one of Adobe's flagship programs and run about $700 full version, retail full version. They're offering it for about $100. I know enough to know that there's legal ways to get software at reduced prices, but they're rare and usually comes with restrictions. I'd like to know if this place is for real...

    I don't know, surely the box alone doesn't cost $600 :p

    I love the idea though, I'm not a big fan of CDs and such.

    It would be nice if more companies offered this method of getting software, purchasing it online, then downloading it.

    You could get a unique code that would confirm you own it incase something happened to the file, or to your computer.
     
  7. yeah thats the only way i would feel safe with the online buying of downloadable things (itunes etc) if there was no way to d/l it again incase of something like a hard disk failure then i would be very hesitant to buy it. then again, thats what god made cdrws for :smug:

    I took another chance and bought Photoshop CS. Everything seems to be in order and I like the software, so far. Won't know for sure until I do a few projects with it. There was one point, when activating the software, where I had a 'warez' flashback, but everything seems nice and LEGAL. Adobe even mentions the distribution method in their README. Photoshop for less than $100! I never thought I'd see that! One thing, though. They have this counter running as you enter the website. If you make a purchase before it elapse, you get a further discount. Its like you're being rushed to make a decision. I can think of a number reasons for the rush(high bandwidth, mostly), but still...
