  1. I didn't think this was possible...but it is!

    I just spoke to Adobe, and purchased the $199 upgrade to CS3...they assured me that this upgrade will upgrade my Educational version of CS2 to the Commercial version of CS3.

    Not sure if anyone else was wondering, but it is possible...

  3. Adobe offered to upgrade my CS Premium Educational version to the commercial edition a few years ago. Unfortunately, I didn't follow through on it. But, I did discover (kind of late) that they do offer a complimentary cross platform upgrade (Windows to MAC or vice-versa). I was relieved to hear that, because CS 3 Premium is on the way and I am planning to purchase a Mac Book Pro within the next few months.

    But the REALLY annoying thing is that if you have Creative Suite 2.3 (which includes PSCS2 of course, you CANNOT just upgrade the Photoshop part.

    that's what I did John, it worked for me. Fact is, I didn't even think about this when upgrading, I just figured it wasn't going to save me much to wait and get through the University, so I went for it.

    Functionally speaking, there is no differcence in Adobe or MS products for education, just the price, and licensing agreement.
