Adobe giving away CS2 on 01/07/2013 11:06:54 MST Print View

Hey everyone,

Looks like Adobe is giving away free downloads for CS2. Great way to get photoshop!

Serial numbers are available after the jump. Have not tried it myself but looks legit.

too bad, but i think most people will have compatibility issues with this 2005 software anyway.

Still available, the site is just getting hammered from reports I've read. The Slick Deals site has direct links to the software which, some folks are saying, is working better for them.

It works fine for me still. I compose the occasional magazine with it.

Works great on my Windows 7 machine. Been using it on several machines for years.

Holy cow, that's the entire CS2 suite, not just Photoshop. InDesign and Illustrator, as well as Acrobat pro, a video editor and a web design program. Back in the day it was about $2k worth of software.

PS CS2 does most of the heavy lifting of the latest edition, just not as many automated features and it won't recognize your RAW files (unless you have a coal-fired digicam). I've used CS2 through 6, and have no qualms about recommending this to anybody who wants a serious bitmap editor.

Cheers,

Rick

I figured since CS2 was originally configured for XP/2000 and PowerPc Macs 10.2/.3 that compatibility would be more of an issue...I guess not.

Sweet As! Enjoy!
