Get Photoshop For $300

Don’t have Photoshop, but don’t want to pay $650 for the latest version? Luckily you have some alternatives.

  • Amazon currently has several copies of Photoshop CS2 (the previous version) for around $300.
  • Here’s a little secret: You can buy a very old copy of Photoshop on eBay (like Photoshop 7) for under $100. Once it arrives, you have a serial number…which you can use with the $250 Photoshop CS3 upgrade disc. So you buy an ancient copy of Photoshop, and upgrade. I did the same thing with Flash. I upgraded to Flash 8 after buying Flash 3. Unfortunately Adobe released Flash CS3 two months after…

Just thought I’d point this out.

    Tht’s a great idea. I guess you just have to make sure the old version you buy will be honored for an upgrade.

    I believe Adobe honors all versions for upgrading. I’ve not been able to find no mention of limitations, and after all, I managed to upgrade a copy of Flash 3 (or was it Flash 2?).
