I have used CS4 plus an upgrade for some years starting out with PS4 when I was very green, I bought it off Ebay and when it arrived it didnt work. I got in touch with the seller and he talked me through it (put this here and that there, I guess it was duff and not the real deal) however we got it to work and it was cheap. I realise now I should have sent it back and asked for a refund. From there I upgraded to CS5 and from there things went swimmingly but I now have a new PC - PS 4 says access denied, without it CS5 wont work and I have 400 RAW files to edit. I have LR but I am frustrated having tried to import and make a collection, for the moment I have given up, I do not have the first clue, I bought the book but following instructions as I read is beyond me.

MY QUESTION - has anybody had dealings with http://www.isoftware.co.uk/products/adobe/photoshop--c11.html ? cheaper than Amazon and I am desperate, I didnt want to go back to shooting jpg - thought I would ask members before I jump Smile its a lorra dosh but I didnt like Elements.
thanks peeps Ann

It is a shame if you have given up on Lightroom, especially if it is LR 4 as the results you can get are really good.

Take a look at Julieanne Kost's video tutorials
Scroll down to March 5 2012 for the Lightroom 4 - Importing & Organizing Your Images and see if it helps with the import / organizing.

did you disable PS4 from your old PC? that may have stopped you accesing it on your new one?

No I didnt but that doesnt come into it really as I tried it as an exercise on my laptop and it says access denied - it was duff in the first place:Sad the old machine has been wiped now ready for disposal by an IT engineer

Before you use that company, take a look at This: http://www.talkphotography.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=463589

It doesn't look particularly promising!

If your copy won't work as it's not genuine you could subscribe for a monthly fee and have access to all of Adobe's products. You'll then be able to upgrade to their latest versions at no extra cost. This seems to be the way Adobe are going to work in future. All it'll mean is you'll have to pay them for the rest of your life, a bit like taxSmile

Hi Ann,

Photoshop CS2 is currently available for nothing, as in completely free, along with a whole host of other old Adobe stuff.
It's obviously not quite cutting edge these days but it's still a very capable piece of software, even if you only use it as a stopgap.

Hope this helps.

Bren.

When you say CS6 I presume you mean just the Photoshop part.

Seems Adobe have you over a barrel the same as everyone else in that you either need to buy from a third party dealer ( Amazon ) or take the subscription route that Adobe now offer.

OR

You could do all the things you would find in Photoshop, By using its baby brother " Elements ".. enough for 99.9% of the amateur market, With bang up to date RAW capability to, With Layers and all sorts of nice stuff.....Grin

What's more its cheaper to.....Wink

I have a nasty suspicion that Adobe has tried to close the door on this option ( despite it still being shown ) The web page link is dated in January 2013, It was after that date that Adobe found out that many where using this to run on the very latest Windows OS and in 32 & 64bit to boot.

So they announced to the world that Photoshop CS2 was not compatible with blah blah & blah, Then came up with a real goody by stating that the " Activation " servers for said software had " Gone Down " probably permanently......!!!!

Coincidence or what....Wink

Still its worth a try, IF you don't mind the faffing around with DNG conversions from RAW where required, Applies if your camera was made after the CS2 programmes where replaced by 3/4/5/6 etc.

Still there is the good old manufacturers software, ie: Nikons ViewNX2 does a nice job on Nikon RAW files, Or Canons DPP for you Canon shooters, Convert to 8 or 16bit Tiffs and pixel bash to your hearts content in anything that works with TIFF files.....Grin

Wink
