    I have an extra older computer that I don't use much and that is the one I will sometimes download software to just try out. At the moment I have it packed away so maybe later I will get it out. The last time I downloaded darktable I put it on that one. It also […]

    Yeah, several companies are coming out with rather slow FF lenses which are smaller than the faster FF lenses. IMO, one can't compare to the speed of old film lenses though. In film days ASA 100 was about as fast as I went with slide film -- slide film speeds that were the best were […]

    I did toy with the A7iii, at least a grey import one which is more reasonable priced (pros and cons to that take). I'm just not sure it's going to be a particularly good purchase at this time, I gain video features (which are not super important right now 1080p is fine for the videos […]

    I have a nice selection of A-mount cameras and lenses. I'm not like the Invicta watch collectors. I don't have any of the long tele lenses that you mention in your posts, except for the Tamron 70-300 f4-5.6, which I value, but wish it was much lighter. I use it with the a65. I also […]

    I have picked up a Minolta 80-200mm F2.8, it's coming from Germany photo dealer with warranty. Based on the serial no. it looks like a late production one in very nice condition, but it's not turned up yet. I'll let you know how it goes, I have a return if needed 14 days hopefully it's […]

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:

//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:
