  • I read a post about Karen's computer and budget concerns when switching from PC to Mac. The Creative Suite is one of our essential tools, but a full version for commercial use typically costs more than a new computer. Since I am a firm believer in purchasing legitimate software, I did some research and this is something I found out last year when upgrading to CS4 about the Student Version, and still applies to the new CS5:

    P.S. From now until September, the Apple Store is running their student/teacher promo:

    It's wasn't always Adobe's policy to allow the educational version of Creative Suite to upgrade to the commercial version or 'allow' the educational version for professional use.
    I think this is great news and a good shift in thinking for Adobe.

    Thanks for sharing...
  • My brother is taking some courses through a community college, and we found that through Academic Superstore, the attendees of quite a few colleges can get a volume discount on top of the standard student and teacher price. What this means is that he can get the CS5 Master Edition for around $600. Plus if he buys an Adobe or Wacom product, they were offering Painter 11 for $49.
  • I also found out last night, that if you switch from a mac to a pc or vice versa, and you have recently purchased adobe software, they will give you the new version (operating system version, not an upgrade or anything) if you fill out paperwork saying that you will destroy the version you have. Hopefully that made sense...
  • It's very good that teachers become more advanced and believe that developing is good and modern technologies can't damage the educational process. When i was studying in college i had some teachers who thinked like that. And it was very difficult to persuade them that there are a lot of new methods to learn their subjects. I had to use https://pro-papers.com/au/our-subjects to do my papers and homework because i had no wish to do it myself.


  • It's great that educators turn out to be further developed and trust that creating is great and present day advancements can't harm the instructive procedure. When I was considering in school I had a few instructors who thinked like that. Also, it was exceptionally hard to convince them that there are a considerable measure of new strategies to take in their subjects. I needed to utilize custom assignment service to do my papers and homework since I had no desire to do it without anyone's help.
