SineSwiper:

So?  What?

I've tried, and simply cannot get along with the workflow in that app.

/but hey, at least it's more stable than Corel Painter.
//best brushes on the market, worst everything else.

jrodnewb: 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.


Have you tried Pixlr in Chrome? It is far from perfect, but for basic needs it tends to fit the bill.

Kanemano: Funny, I was just reading this article yesterday

"How Adobe endlessly rebuilds its classic app"


Thanks, that was a great read.

Tried running premier pro 2.0 after downloading "for free." Ran once, now doesn't even come up.
Compatibility already addressed.
Any suggestions?

AndreMA: 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.


Yup. Getting System 6.0.3 isn't too difficult (Apple may still have it on its old support site), but good luck on finding MPW (Macintosh Programmer's Workshop) and MacApp so you can actually build it. Although, once you find those tools and round up a USB floppy drive that reads GCR-encoded disks, you can set up a build host in Mini vMac.

NeoCortex42: 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.


Download all 3 discs (or everything?) and then what?

Mugato: gaspode: 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.

Any hint on how do do that? For a friend.


It involves inserting your penis into Adobe's asses.

Run the executable and use the provided serial.

I installed just a couple of the programs instead of the full suite.  I didn't run into any problems with it.

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

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.


See, that's what you get for running Photoshop on a low end system like a Mac.  Now, if you had been running it on an SGI system (under IRIX and with a MIPS proc), you wouldn't have had such long waits.

Derpy me didn't realize there were individual serial numbers and stuff.

Hipster computer dork was Mac bashing in a Photoshop thread before it was cool! I got paid by the hour... I win.

Alexei Novikov: the cake is a pie: I Like Bread: 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.


I think there needs to be a button to make it  just work. Hide it somewhere that will take 3 different google searches to find.  Put it behind several layers of dialogs, confirmations, warning popups, etc.

Are you sure? Y/N
No, seriously, are you sure? Y/N
Really really sure? Y/N
This could fark things up, you don't have to be a hero, you know? Y/N
Alright, if you insist... Ha! just kidding, we're gonna check again, are you really absolutely sure this time? And we mean it, for realsies! Y/N


And then after all that, if you get to the end and answer the final question Yes, it just turns your user into a full-fledged administrator that can see/do everything without any further molestation by the OS, ever.

Hell, I has a hard time finding ResEdit in 2000...

jeffdo1: 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.


$6,000 poorer?

Got it, thanks. And CS3 and CS6. Just in case.

Probably not unlike many people, I didn't get to Photoshop on a Mac until 2.0 came out (we later found 1.07 and it was uuuuugly).

Anyways it ran well enough on our LCII. I mean, if you liked coffee breaks while applying Gaussian blurs.

Ex-Boss one day gave me an Upgrade license for Photoshop 3.
Like, five years ago.

Wooo.
 
2013-02-16 08:56:28 PM
But what about the serial number on Photoshop 2?
 
2013-02-17 05:54:53 AM
License needs more gnu
