    They probably don't have TVs. While relatively cheap to the industrial world, some people are still living on $5 a day.Reminds me a story I read of an American in Peru visiting an "Adult Entertainment" establish, and smoking a large cigar. The guard asked him about it and he offered him one. The guard asked […]

  • Lens Lore • Re: Camera craft "filter test" September 2, 2015
    I found it very interesting. I have heard a few fellow shooters complaining that their filters actually degraded the image and had removed them completely.

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.

Free.

The link you need is:

https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/entitlement/index.cfm?pid=4485850&e=cs2_downloads

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:
