    Interesting shot Pitter, but it is not working for me. Perhaps turn the image into a "painting" might work. Something like Hayes Island Effect (You can Google for Hayes Island Effect). Just a suggestion. Please let me know if you would like to see a "sample".SuryStatistics: Posted by sury — Sat May 02, 2015 9:41 […]

    Fascinating. It looks like parts of several pictures chopped up and pasted together and I have to keep looking at it to figure out the puzzle so to speak.Statistics: Posted by the_hefay — Sat May 02, 2015 6:14 pm

    Nice shot Pitter. Irony is there are so many materially wealthy who would give anarm and a leg for that kind of blissful sleep. Must be a clean "freak" as the expression goes, looking at his socks.SuryStatistics: Posted by sury — Sat May 02, 2015 5:19 pm

Adobe gives away legacy Photoshop/Suite (CS2)

If you don’t like using Elements, and can’t afford the latest Photoshop, and have something like a Mac G4 or early Intel series, or a Windows XP machine, Adobe has an unbeatable price for you to download and use Creative Suite CS2.


The link you need is:

Be warned that since this link was made public, the server has been down occasionally and the site temporarily unavailable. It has been restored but you may have to retry for a quieter period. This is a popular move from Adobe.

The important element of CS2 for the photographer, Photoshop, is only part of the deal as you also get InDesign, Illustrator and Premiere (pre-HD video).

You can use CS2 for a wide range of photo editing tasks, and although it does not support new Alpha and NEX raw files, it is easy enough to convert these to .DNG (Adobe Digital Negative) format using the DNG Converter. This is also a free download: (Windows) (Macintosh)
