Adobe.com is now down.
Don't go all at once! :-)

Is that real? Bestbuy has PHotoshop 7 listed as $650. Then on the adobe site it says regularly for $499?? weird.... maybe it's not the "professional" version.

Looks like a pretty straightforward offer to me. $200 off the listed $499.

If you click on the normal photoshop 7 on the website, the listed price is $600. That is a SWEET deal if it's true, but i wonder if it's only for educational or some non-commercial use.

mind boggling.....really.

No restrictions. It was apparently a mistake, but Adobe are honoring it until tomorrow.
Discussion here , but it seems from the people who called Adobe,
it is legit, without any catches and the full, unrestricted version.

There was some discussion that it was only an upgrade option for Photoshop Elements owners. I guess you could check with Adobe if
you are interested.

The consensus on dpreview is that you need Elements (which I happen to have)....I just bought it (7.0)... Thanks GORDON!

If you really want to buy it at that price, you can buy it for me!

I'm gonna have to consider buying Photoshop... I have Photoshop Elements and that works very well for almost everything I need to do...

I would like to be able to do some duotoning and quadtoning. Elements does not have these features and i do not know how to do them manually... I guess I need to experiment some :)

10/31/2002 12:12:23 PM · #12
sure! anyone else want me to buy it for them? ; )

Has anyone had trouble getting a purchase through?? I just tried to purchase it and got a "...sorry this service is unavailable due to technical difficulties... we are working to correct the problem..." .

Update: Adobe back online, purchase went through no problem. I spoke with customer service who told me that you had to have a "special code" that was received through direct mailings to "some" customers, but that appears NOT to be true, as I tried to buy anyway, and it worked.

One of the guys here at work also purchased PS7 for his home use with no problems for the $299 price -- just in case you're considering the purchase.

Well, the worse case is taht you will need Adobe Elements for the "upgrade". But that would still save you money because elements are selling for about $80 on EBay and $380 versus $600 is still a good deal.

Looks/ sounds like it was legit. No proof or other versions
required.

Discussion from people who have recieved their version
11/04/2002 01:14:37 PM · #18
The guy here in the office who ordered it just got it today -- he got an upgrade version -- he's going to be writing some nasty letters...

Upgrade from what? Elements?
11/04/2002 04:31:56 PM · #20
He doesn't know yet -- wife called and told him.
11/08/2002 06:25:49 PM · #21
I got mine today.

Install it no problem. FULL version. The box says "UPGRADE" but it's a full version installation. The CD key itself also doesn't say anything about an upgrade (which it usually does for upgrades).

Sweet. $300 :-) Congrats to those who took a chance.

Not to slight Photoshop (PS) but has anyone tried (PSP) Paint Shop Pro from Jasc Software? I have found that it supports almost every effect and plug-in that is created for PS. It also has some very useful tools for photo adjustments and supports pressure sensitive tablets as well. The best part is it's only $99 regular price.
If there are any questions about the software let me know at ppritchett75074@yahoo.com

If one were so inclined one could find Photoshop 7.0 and Image Ready 7.0 floating around the net for free. I know someone who never pays for their software and has full versions of all the latest graphics’ suites at no cost. ;)
11/08/2002 08:46:14 PM · #24
Until the day when he tries to sell his print and someone pointed him out to the authorities :)

If you like the software, you should buy it.

I use PSP, and am fairly well pleased with it. I have wondered about quality issues after it has been saved, but nothing major. I would strongly recommend it to someone on a limited budget, but wanting something for post processing.
