I though it would be a repeat of them releasing the entirety of CS2 free to the public (albeit accidentally):
http://www.adobe.com/downloads/cs2_downloads/index.html

Still available if anybody wants it.

Like Aussies could figure out how to install Photoshop much less use it.

I love their "warning"...

Adobe strongly advises against running unsupported and outdated software.

What they really mean...

Adobe strongly advises against running software we cannot make money off of anymore

even if you download it doesn't it have an activation process which they themselves is down?

Did they ever more formally respond to the whole "CS2 is free" debacle, or did they just play possum on that one?
 
2013-02-14 03:21:15 PM  
I was a few keystrokes away from opening a new tab to download GIMP because I need a nice free image editor real quick and then I saw this and I thought - YES!!! that'll work just perfect!!!


but no.

The initial reason for them posting that page of downloads was to allow people who purchased the software a while ago to download versions that did not require online activation since the servers were taken down.

Open sourcing Photoshop v1.0.1 is a great move; it pretty much obsoletes GIMP.

Source code for the Mac version of 1.01 is neat and all, but I was hoping for 2.5 (the first Windows version) to see if I could get it to run on my Omnibook 300. I want to see Photoshop running on a 386 with 8 MB RAM and a greyscale screen.

Wow, a peak at life before Adobe Bridge, Adobe Version Cue, Adobe Dynamic Link, Adobe Device Central, Adobe Extension Manager, and Adobe Content Viewer.

Does this mean I can scan twenty dollar bills again?

You know, I rarely steal software. However I will make a special exception for Adobe, because, well, fark you Adobe, fark you right in your asses.

It has a better user interface. Maybe gimp could learn from that.

When I was your age, Photoshop didn't have layers. Once you deselected something, it was merged into the background. Also, because of the speed of the processors, many common Photoshop activities were accompanied by a 20 minute (or longer) wait times to calculate rotations or filter results.

Also: wore an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time.

Haw! My first job out of uni was as a programmer on Northwestern's CDC 6400 (think IBM 286....).

I'd guess this needs a Motorola 680x0 (probably with FPU if it's 68030 or earlier) and needs to run under MacOS 6.x (maybe 7.1?) -- and then you'd need the Apple developer tools of the era to build it.

Drawing on paper seems a more feasible alternative.

SWEET
Hard drive crash left me without my cracked version. Also installing cs2 to do comparisons.
Haven't played with PS in forever. hope I can remember enough to enter Fark PS contests.

My first version of Photoshop was 3, which if I remember correctly was the first version with Layers. You installed it using seven floppy disks.

I have been doing the cloud product that Adobe has going now, all of their apps installed on my desktop for 50 a month. It's kind of cool now, not sure how I'll feel in ten years though.

They should give away CS6 since it's the biggest pile of shiat ever pumped out..  Adobe are at the point in development of adding features just for the sake of adding features..

Like the crop tool they absolutely farking ruined..

CS5 is Adobe master race..

I installed it. Where is the .exe? Any suggestions?

I tried installing the "free" CS2 on the enterprise eval of Windows 8 and it worked fine other than having to use "progra~2" as the installation directory. Then after I formatted and installed Pro I tried again. It goes through all the motions of installing, but doesn't actually do anything. The folder doesn't exist. Nothing. I'm guessing I don't have rights to the Program Files directory, but the adobe installer doesn't recognize this for some reason.

Every time I think I've got Microsoft's bug nuts crazy permission system figured out they go and change it up. I'm sorry that 99% of windows users have room temperature IQs and are completely incapable of managing to not install the latest Trojan du jour every couple weeks, but please, some of us do actually know what we're doing. Just let us work and get the frak out of the way.

Hey! I have several copies of MS Word 6.0* (on diskette) and Windows 3.1* (also on diskette). Let's install them as well....

/Unopened copies I got when my old job tossed them.

You probably have to run the install program as an administrator. Or - and I recommend this for other reasons - install it to a different drive.

I think I tried that, maybe not. In 7 I'm pretty sure you could just turn off UAC and get effective admin rights, or at least enough to not be bothered too often. Now it seems like you have to actively try to run everything as admin directly if you want to accomplish anything.

And that's probably not a bad thing for most of the consumer base.
