  • Lens Lore • Re: Jay Maisel loves his Nikon 28-300mm May 10, 2021
    I watched a few videos on Jay and he's quite an interesting character no doubt about it. I suppose such a range is probably covering a lot of uses, with the exception of low light photography (maybe DOF too though I can even smash out the background fairly well on the 18-135mm SAM crop lens […]

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:
