    my apologies.

    one place u can try is challenger. i think they might have student copies there. its the same full CS version. just dat u need to produce some student id to enjoy the lower price. even then, its still bloody expensive...

    other programs to consider are jasc printshop pro, or even *GASP* microsoft photo editing software (can't remember the name).

    After trodding all over Singapore, i found the the cheapest retail is around $10xx. You can get the academic version but it will be registered in the name of the 'academic' person who bought it.

    There are other ways to get a legit copy of Photoshop CS.

    Adobe was/is offering a heavily discounted upgrade from Elements or Photoship LE. One of these two software usually comes with the purchase of a digital camera. Don't know if this is still available. (Oh, you'd need a friend in the States though - only available for those living over there.)

    Another way is to keep an eye on ebay for old scanners that come with licensed version of an older version of Photoshop, maybe 2.0 or thereabouts. This will legally qualify you for the upgrade version of Photoshop CS, which is much cheaper than the full license.

    An academic version would be the cheapest. I personally would be getting the creative suite next year

    I don't think you can upgrade from PS 2 to PS CS!

    Another free software is Serif Photoplus 5.5. The new version, Photoplus 9, costs abt US$100.

    I've not tried it so dunno how good it is

    Anyone here tried it before?

    The Microsoft SW is called Digital Image Pro. Current version is 10.

    You can also consider www.photofiltre.com, which is free.

    Like i said earlier, the copy you buy would be registered in the name of the person who provided the academic credentials. (Not to make too fine a point, but it kinda implies you 'pirated' from the registered owner, though you actually paid for it.)

    Economically.........well depends what you want to do with your photos. It is very difficult to get such low prices for licience software. If you do find a great deal at a very low price, please be careful. It could be a pirated/copied versions. Nothing beats getting the original licience software.

    If you are just intending to change a few curves, white balance, brightness and contrast I think Photoshop CS maybe to ex and too advance for you to do that. Most of the older version on PS 6.0 and 7.0 are able to help you out.

    Any reason for getting a CS? Have you tried using the older PS versions? I think you can do a lot with it.

    The only thing I am not too sure whether can you convert RAW files on older versions of Photoshop 6.0 and 7.0 compared to Photoshop CS which has that function. Photoshop CS has another tool which the older version do not have is the Photomerge/Photo Stitch. This are some of the new tools.

    Thanks!

    I assume you already have Photososhop Elements (and a Canon user :P)? Get a vpostusa account, try this:

    http://store.adobe.com/store/product...ml?id=catCanon

    You get it for US$299 + shipping + GST. Non-academic version.

    Most people just do some color balance, curve, unsharp mask, text. Photoshop (PS) is over kill and bloated ! Just pay US$119 for PaintShopPro (PSP) and you can do everything you need. Not as hip but at least you own a copy of licesed software. Invest in a few good plugins such as Color Mechanic and Boxtop software JPG plugin.

    If you really need PS features that do not exist in PSP, then you should be able to afford PS ;-)
