What would be the cheapest price around for CS3, full version. I would like to buy photoshop, but can't afford the CS4 version. I may actually look into buying the academic version of CS4 though if it's the same as CS3, but is that version just as good as a full version of CS3?

yes, the academic ver is a fully functional version. You just have to be a student to activate it.

Academic CS4 Design Premium ranges from $300-400, IIRC.

Academic CS4 Extended is about $200: http://www.academicsup​erstore.com …Photoshop+Exten​ded/961155 (external link)

License is the same, but you cannot resell it.

Technically, you just have to be a student (or have a student in your household) to buy the academic version. Most of the reputable online stores require a student ID or report card to be faxed or a copy emailed before they will ship the product. The installation doesn't care one way or another.

This wasn't the case when I got mine. I bought it off Amazon. They shipped it to me without asking for any student credentials. But then I had to call Adobe when I activated it and sent them a photocopy of my ID .

And to be clear, Adobe sells the student version of CS4 for $200.

Off their site? I have a student, so i'd like to take advantage of the student version/discount.

Hmmm, academicsuperstore must have done something on my behalf then? I proved to them, they sent me the box, I installed with no issues. Maybe CS4 does this? I have CS3.

I can get design premium for $259 through my school or the master collection for $450. I think just CS4 photoshop is $179. Obviously to your benefit to by a package rather than single program.

I can't remember the last time I paid for editing software. Then again, I'm not trying to profit from its use, it's just for personal editing. Just saying.

I've made several purchased through Academic Superstore by using my daughters elementary school credentials.

Once I had the software, there was no hoops to jumps through. Set up, install, and activation were as usual.

Is there an option to upgrade from CS3 to CS4 via student version?

I don't believe so. I go through my school which is UW-Milwaukee and UW-Madison have the same program. They are all new, fully licensed versions but no upgrades.

You can upgrade to CS4 non-academic for the regular upgrade price using the CS3 academic. There's no upgrade discount for academic to academic versions.
