Just wondering who paid for CS5 and who didn't but has it on their computer.
I just looked online and seen that CS5 Extended was selling for $1000 and CS5 was $700 :eek:
This is a must have, but paying as much as they ask for just to edit pictures is pretty outrageous..

And yes there is a cheaper version and yes it is used for more then just editing a photo and yes I know it takes alot to make these programs and yes to everything you might say..
Just wondering who paid and who didn't :)

Yes, as I've posted in the last 10 days, I picked up a Wacom medium tablet bundled with LR3 for $399. It comes with a free version of Elements 9 that is upgradable to CS5 for $299. $700 for the package was what I considered a good deal. The deal is only good through 11/30

I got mine as a student for a significant discount. I believe it was $299.

About 6 months ago there was an internet offer, about half price for the upgrade. I had PSE previously.

Is it?
I'm asking about the same "just to take pictures"…

If you are asking whether we have an illegitimate license, then you are asking in the wrong forum!

I have a full legitimate license for CS4. I wasn't planning on upgrading to CS5, but that might be cheaper than having to get the full version of CS6. I considered Capture One Pro, but it's $400, so no saving there.

The CS4 to CS5 full (non student) upgrade costs NZ$338/US$250 here in New Zealand. Could I buy the upgrade from the US?

I thought about upgrading from CS4 to CS5, but decided it wasn't worth the money. As far as whether or not it is worth the price, I have a simple philosophy, if you don't think it's worth the price then it's likely you don't need it, get PSE and be happy.:D
