You have heard wrong! Adobe is absolutely not providing free copies of CS2!

What is true is that Adobe is terminating the activation servers for CS2 and that for existing licensed users of CS2 who need to reinstall their software, copies of CS2 that don't require activation but do require valid serial numbers are available. (Special serial numbers are provided on the page for each product download.) See .
You are only legally entitled to download and install with that serial number if you have a valid license to the product!

OK after a lot of trial an error here is how to fully install the CS2 suite step by step. This includes photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign and bridge (file explorer)

Download the CS2 suite files ( I did this via jdownloader software - google it)


and the extra goodies i.e fonts/textures etc if you want them


1. Right-click each file (.exe file)
2. Select Properties then go to the Compatibility tab.
3. Put a check on the “Run this program in compatibility mode for” then select the previous OS which do you think it worked. For your case select Windows XP with Service Pack 3
4. Then under Privilege Level, place a check on “Run this program as administrator”
5. Click Apply then OK.

ignore disk 1 (we will come back to this)

Click disk 2 - but change the Save Files in folder destination to
C:\Creative Suite CS2\Adobe Creative Suite 2.0\

be default it goes to the wrong folder of C:\Creative Suite\Adobe Creative Suite 2.0\ - This later brings up an error of insert disk 2.

If it says Unable to create the specified output folder! - just click OK

Click Next

Click Disk 3 - making sure the address is C:\Creative Suite CS2

Click Next


Install the Extra Files if you want to


Now Click Disk 1 - Destionation folder - C:\Creative Suite CS2
Ignore Quicktime 6 message
Accept Agreement
Enter Serial - 1130-1414-7569-4457-6613-5551
Now you need to change the location as C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe is not valid
change it to C:\Progra~2\Adobe

If the next button stays greyed out, click back then go forward with the next button. All should now be good

Install the entire suite or just the components you require.

Select Do not Register on drop down on the registration page

Enjoy. Goodnight

Think we need some common sense here. I am a graphic designer who has used Adobe products for over 20 years so I will give you some advice for those who need it.

Looks like Adobe has made a balls up here by underestimating that these links will be made public to the masses. Twitter was going mad with them this morning and now its global. As mentioned in a previous comment, they are turning off the old activation servers so anyone with genuine old CS2 will not be able to active or reactive it. Therefore they have provided a downloaded version and a corresponding serial that doesn't need to go through the activation servers.

The bad news for adobe is these links are now everywhere, so anyone can register for an Adobe ID on there site, and download the FULL software and use the provided serials to activate it. Adobe are now panicing putting out statements saying you need a valid copy for this to be legit. Unfortunately you have the full software and serial so not a lot they can now do.

You do not need to download all the files. IN FACT DEFINETLY DONT. The servers are already busting a gut, they have created their own Denial of Service attack.

At the most you need to download Disk1, Disk2, Disk3 and WWE Extras. This will download the CS2 suite.

Ideally I presume the majority of people on here just want a valid copy of photoshop for photo and image editing. So just download that link and that link only.

All the other software is very specific to a particular job and you will probably never need it.

With the exception of maybe these.
Acrobat Pro 8.0 - just use a free alternative if you need to edit PDFs. i.e Foxit PDF editor
Illustrator - Used for drawing vectors/line art.
Indesign - used for page/magazine layout
Photoshop Elements - is just basically a simplified photo editor. Good for grannies useless for most other people. Plus all the same things can be achieved with photoshop.
Premiere Pro - Is a video editting suite and certainly isn't for the novice. So no point in downloading unless this is your field. Stick to a youtube editting program :)

Finally as everyone is reporting the links are hit and miss due to the servers crashing. My advice download a download manager such as jdownloader. Copy the links in the opening post (only the ones you need) and they will automatically go into this program and then download at the full capacity of your internet speed.

I have just finished downloading the CS suite links. I will test them and see how they work and post later. (hoping to god they do not **** up my genuine version of CS5.)

If you want to install CS2 it should be in a 32-bit OS environment like Windows XP. But Windows 7 has a solution for this.
1. Right-click on the installer file (.exe file)
2. Select Properties then go to the Compatibility tab.
3. Put a check on the “Run this program in compatibility mode for” then select the previous OS which do you think it worked. For your case select Windows XP with any Service Pack.
4. Then under Privilege Level, place a check on “Run this program as administrator”
5. Click Apply then OK.

Ahhh, beat me to it! Haha, great deal :)
Old versions - but incredible deal!
This is great, even if it's a bit out of date, nothing beats legit software, I've had no end of trouble with cs4 from not so legit sources. Heat added 8)

Amazing deal! Older software but excellent for people who don't need the latest verions or people starting to learn.

Holy crap Batman, red hot! Suddenly Paint.Net and GIMP look pointless.
Cheers OP, and I totally agree martyj999 lol
Thanks OP excellent free deal!
Is this a 'try before you buy' offer or will I be able to use it freely in maybe 6 months time? Anyone know?
Does anyone have the direct link for this?

I'm getting blocked through my firewall at work.

You get serial keys with your download so I'd assume you can keep the software as long as you like
Anyone else getting unavailable errors? HUKD strikes again! :-)
Yes, Adobe link unavailable !
Yes, Im getting the same.
This is a brilliant deal! Voted hot.

doubt it is hukd causing the problem but links through from tech sites and such as this is a awesome freebie!
I hope they've fixed the installers etc so they'll actually install/run without loads of messing on Win7/8 :-)

I still use Photoshop CS2 at home.. other than having to render to TIFF to edit from Lightroom it still does the job just fine, and crashes a lot less than the trial of CS6 I used recently.

Link seems to have broken at the moment, but hopefully it'll be back again soon.

Unless it was an error of course!

Edit: No, it's working, it just takes a really long time to load!

Maybe they would actually get more sales if they didn't put it at extortionate prices... I mean £800+ for some software? AHAHAH
