    Well, if you want to continue using it, buying it would seem to be your solution. It's called a user software license agreement and Adobe dont' give those away... upgrades suck, but you have 2 options. You do or you don't.
  6. Is it worth it over CS2? I shoot photojournalism and only use Photoshop to crop and adjust curves plus add the exif data.
  7. If that is all you use it for, probably not....but it does have lots of nice new enhancements :smile: :rolleyes:  :smile: :rolleyes:

    I upgraded from Photoshop 6.0 to CS2. My question is can I now upgrade to CS3? I think their licensing for upgrades are for CS and CS2 only. If that is the case, I need to buy a full license. Can anyone in the know please tell me if I am right or wrong. Thanks.

    Yes it is worth it even for journalists
    ACR 4 will edit jpg and tiff now

    Thank Gale. So that means the upgrade path is open from one version to the next. That is cool.

    Once you buy PS and upgrade it, the up grade just keeps going
    Usually from 3 versions back if one has never up graded.
    So for someone that has ps7 it is upgradable to cs3..then up gradable each time. But you don't have to upgrade each time if you don want to.
    I up graded from 7 to cs2.
    See how it goes:>)))
    Now are you totally confused.
  15. You are like me....99% of what I need like curves and color correction and cropping get done just fine in plain ol' ps 6 or 7.

    Problem is that with the trail version I've had I get hooked on the very useful tweaks like smartsharpen and improved cloning and healing, raw.....yada yada yada.......

    It's sort of like trading in your 4 year old car....non-essential to survival but so very nice to do.

    When mine expired, it destroyed the registrations for my entire CS2 suite and every other Adobe program I use. I had to reinstall everything. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER install an Adobe beta.

    There are specific instruction for uninstalling the beta.
    If followed , should have no prob with the upgrade to cs3
    See adobe site for instructions
  18. Of course! Welcome to Adobe's revenue stream. :biggrin:
  19. I agree 100%. It should be seamless and require no special action... in fact, if it needs to be uninstalled it should do that automatically from within itself.

    Never again for me.
