By the way, learning how to use a high-end image editor like Photoshop can be a daunting task. However, once you learn it, it can really pay off. I had used a different image editor program for years, and then I got some deal to switch over to Adobe Photoshop. The price was right, so I did. The trick is, of course, that when the price of a high-end product like that suddenly gets discounted, it is typically a sign that there is a newer version coming out soon, and they are just trying to get you to buy in early, and then upgrade versions almost immediately. [sigh]
I switched to Photoshop, and sure enough the new version came out just a month or two later. It had enough neat features that I was after it. But, I sure did not want to pay the full Adobe price or the full Adobe upgrade price. I was shopping around online, and I found a retailer who was offering the new version for cheap (I don't remember, maybe $150 or something). Without checking up on the retailer, I ordered it and paid by Paypal. Then I didn't hear anything from the retailer. I sent emails to the retailer asking for a ship date, and I got the weirdest replies. It turned out that the retailer was in China, and they had no clue what Adobe Photoshop version XYZ was. They didn't stock such a product, yet they advertised it on the web. In fact, their plan was to wait until they had eight or ten paying customers lined up, and then they would send somebody out on the street to purchase one legal or illegal copy. They would clone that (somehow, they didn't know) and ship eight or ten bootleg copies to the customers. Once I figured out what they were up to, I had the transaction canceled and Paypal informed. Even then, the stupid retailer was trying to ship _something_ to me to prove something, but that didn't work.
My point is, if you are laying down some honest cash to get a high-end product, do some homework and find out who you are dealing with.
