    Download Adobe Photoshop CS2 For Free Legally While You Still Can
    Photoshop is seen by the overwhelming majority as the de facto pinnacle of image editing and manipulation. Whilst revered for its vast tool set, seemingly unlimited plugins and general, all-round power, it is out of the price range of many average users looking to learn / dabble in a little Photoshopping. Each year, Adobe beefs up its umbrella of Creative Suite products (encompassing Photoshop), with prices remaining higher than most other paid software out there, but in something of a turn up for the books, Photoshop has just gone free!

    Before you smash open your “saving for Photoshop” piggy bank to splash on expensive champagne in joyous celebration, it’s important to note that we’re not talking about the latest version, rather the ten year old Photoshop (and Creative Suite) CS2. It would appear Adobe has grown tired of maintaining a bunch of activation servers to keep users on the right side of legal, and has simply caved, instead releasing it free of charge.​

    Didn't they correct the "free" assumption about that download and clarify that it was really meant for those who paid for a copy even though they are ending their verification upon install for that version?

    Not that I care... I picked it up too. however, and I say this having not the slightest talent using either, I kinda prefer Gimp.


    I use it to make beer labels and other things.

    For those who just want to have a tool to handle screenshots (or any picture) and do not need professional picture-editing features the free PicPick is a great solution.

    I don't understand. Is it free or not? And which link are you referring to.

    It is not really free. The activation servers for this products are down now, so license owners could not activate their products anymore, if Adobe would not offer this "free" versions. This is why Adobe offers the software even in different languages.

    But its very nice! Good guys there! I am even upgrading! From PS 7.0 to PS 9.0 (CS2) :cool:
