1. There are plenty of illegal downloads to find on the internet, but if you want a totally legal Photoshop, you can download it from this link: download.adobe.com/pub/adobe/magic/creativesuite/CS2_EOL/PHSP/PhSp_CS2_English.exe
    Or you could simply go to adobe's homepage and download it here: adobe.com/downloads/cs2_downloads/index.html?

  2. When you purchase the program, you should've been able to get the newest updates everytime there comes a new one. For example you should be able to download CS7 with the serial number you got from purchasing Photoshop CS6.?

  3. am i the only one who can't do the things she's doing on smart objects or insert a condition to an action?

    ugh… so annoying, was looking forward to the "insert condition" ?

  4. Never said anything about how much the kid with the sprinkles paid…just that he did. If you could care less about the features, then why do you continue to whine about how you're "getting shafted"?
    As I said before, if the product you have is still useful and bringing value to your business, what does it matter what someone else has?
    I wish I could be the regulator of all whining on the internet; maybe then this technological gift could be used for something more worthwhile.?

  5. Actually, the kid with the sprinkles paid less. Adobe is charging more for boxed versions than for CC. Don't you get it? I could care less about those features, I just think it is hilarious that you still think you are paying more for CC.

    You are right, you are not my mother but for all your interest one might think otherwise. I wish you all the best in your self-appointed role as regulator of all whining on the internet. ?

  6. I acknowledge the differences in our POVs; however, you fail to realize that I don't care. I'm not your mother.

    You're whining on the internet that you don't have access to a certain set of features even though the boxed version you have is still perfectly good.

    That's like crying because the kid next to you got sprinkles on their ice cream cone (because they paid for it) as if it somehow diminishes the flavor of your own…?

  7. Comforting to know that there are still people out there who are incapable of considering anyone else's point of view that differs from their own. Thank you for reaffirming this for me Ali. Have a nice life.?

  8. Did your boxed version of CS6 stop working or something?
    Is the product any less useful or valuable simply because CC exists?
    Did Adobe say that the new features will never be available in the future in later boxed versions?
    Will you be suffering any loss of business or productivity because you don't have the five features detailed above?
    If the answer is 'no' to even one of those questions, then yes, you are whining.

  9. I started buying the boxed version just before CS1. So I guess that makes seven times now.
    It is common for companies to shaft loyal loyal customers who have invested a great deal of money. Why should anyone feel they have the right to "whine" about that kind of treatment? All those ungrateful wretches who purchased lousy boxed versions should just shut up and be thankful that they have the opportunity swallow the expense and switch over the CC even though they already bought the full version.?

  10. No, I just found your "sarcasm" to dull.
    How often do people who purchase boxed versions of CS actually upgrade? I'm willing to bet that there are a lot of users who are still using CS4 & we haven't even mentioned how often their software is probably pirated.
    What CC actually does is increase Adobe's revenue stream by making their products accessible to a larger population that may not have $2600 at once to purchase a suite but can easily afford $50/month to have access to the latest tools.

  11. I'm not debating the value of the software. I use it every day. What I don't understand is how you think that CC subscribers are the only people contributing enough to cover R&D. It boggles my mind. Perhaps the sarcasm in my previous comment didn't come through clearly.
    CS6 sells for $2600. That is equal to over 4 years of CC subscription fees. It would seem that CC subscribers are benefiting from the traditional purchasers who actually fund the R&D but don't actually benefit from the updates.?

  12. As I said before, if you want the features, invest in a Creative Cloud membership and stop complaining. No one forced you to buy the boxed version. Whining about it on YouTube as opposed to Adobe itself isn't going to get you very far.
    If you don't like Adobe or their business model, don't use their products. It's as simple as that.?

  13. As Oscar Wilde said, "Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing."
    Just take a moment to consider the vast expanse in capability between the 1st Photoshop and CS6 but also the differences in technology since then.
    It takes a lot of talented people to put together the Adobe software & and they deserve to be paid well for their efforts because their product allows my business to thrive & keep pace with the growing demand from an increasingly savvy population.?

  14. Seriously? Adobe has put out 13 versions of Photoshop and hasn't been able to fund R&D until just now? Wow. Do you know how much a full copy of Master Collection CS6 costs? That must just barely cover the cost of shipping DVDs. Adobe couldn't possibly be making a profit on that measly amount, let alone investing that money in developing the next version.?

  15. For those of you incessantly complaining that Adobe is favoring CC members, you're right.

    That's because we're the ones financing Adobe's ability to research and develop those new features over which you're salivating. Upgrading your CS only every few years or so doesn't cover the R&D costs to create them, especially when most of you probably download them anyway.

    If you want the features, invest in a CC membership and stop complaining. ?
