Free Adobe CS2 - old but worthwhile?

Quote:Mac, Win 2000 or XP Sad


Haven't tried it yet but it looks like it will run on Windows 7 - however there is a caveat over 64-bit versions of XP and 7, looks like the installer doesn't work properly installing into the OS's default folder for 32-bit apps;

Thanks for the links and info. I downloaded a copy to my Windows7, 64bit PC and everything seems absolutely fine.

The two links I posted at 10:24?

I found those when I was googling to see if I could find what the difference between the two Acrobat versions was and one search came back with people having trouble on 64-bit machines. The first link was from the Google search result and the second from links within that.

To completely clarify things, I've just downloaded and installed Photoshop CS2 using the link from the other thread that's running and it works just fine. In fact it's like stepping back in time.

Anyone looking for free or cheap editing software would be foolish, to say the least, not to take advantage of this offer.

Even if you don't use everything that it can do, you'll be impressed with what's available.

(Elements users who haven't got and have never used Photoshop and who often tell us how unnecessary its powers are, now's your chance to find out!)

I'm using Windows 8, albeit on a 32 bit machine.

I don`t believe it was intended as free software Smile

Update 2: Looks like Adobe didnít actually mean to release CS2 for free to the entire world, even though it didnít say anything, and still doesnít, on the download site about it. And there we thought Adobeís fail was a late Christmas present and all.

Well, they haven't exactly gone out of their way to do anything about it - the first move I'd have made would have been a tossup between sticking a big banner on the page to clarify what it's for or taking the page down completely.
