If you haven't heard yet, you can now download Adobe's Photoshop CS2 for free straight from their website as they are no longer offering support for the software.

Read more here: [link]

 Simply head on over to the Adobe website, sign up and you will find all the available downloads here: [link]


Had to share that with all of you, how very awesome of them :D

They're not giving it away for free, just making it available for users who have already paid and need to re-download a copy. It still requires a serial number.

Heard this was just a fix for their already CS2 customers...to fix some glitch. Read a statement from Adobe that this was never intended as a free giveaway.

Still...Trying to download it now...hoping it works. Have never used Photoshop before and would like to try it.

My teacher has sent me an e-mail where he says:

No, You Can't Download Adobe CS2 Applications For Free

"You have heard wrong! Adobe is absolutely not providing free copies of CS2!

What is true is that Adobe is terminating the activation servers for CS2 and that for existing licensed users of CS2 who need to reinstall their software, copies of CS2 that don't require activation but do require valid serial numbers are available. (Special serial numbers are provided on the page for each product download.) See <[link]>." Adobe scientist Dov Isaacs clarifies

So, it doesn't matter whether you download it illegal or install it without paying for it, it's the same guilt ... .____.

No, it's just free. Not all that amazing either. CS2 is so old. Sure it's still handy but there are so many more useful features of the current Photoshop (obviously). Also, a more up-to-date version of the software will harness the power of a computer system built today, e.g. GPU rendering and making more efficient use of RAM.

it's free and everything in your gallery could have been done in paint.net. get off your high horse and quit whining.

Yes, because of course, I upload to dA everything I do in Photoshop. Also, everything in my dA gallery definitely indicated that's all that I create in Photoshop.


I'm on no high horse, I'm just saying it's not that incredible since it's such an old piece of software. I've been using PS since version 7, so I've seen the improvements over the years and offering it for free isn't going to be so good when you get down to using it properly.

sorry bro, your art sucks and you're full of yourself. time to come down from that horse :la:

for people who don't have PS, using CS2 isn't going to kill them. this may shock you to hear, but people actually got work done before CS2 came out.

Oh noes, I'm dreadfully upset. That's such a hurtful remark.

lol, I'm sensing that I hit a nerve here. Did you download CS2 for free then, and did I hurt your feelings or something?

Pretty sure you still need a original copy to activate it.

Nope, the point of that download is to not have to activate it, because they are shutting down the activation servers for the CS2 suite :nod:

I bought myself CS5 with a student license in Fall '11. This would have been a bit more convenient money-wise. :lol: But, still, I'm glad others get the opportunity to use it for free. That's pretty damn awesome!
