Lowest price I have seen for this (normally ~ £62). Don't know how long this will last (often only 1 day), so I've just bought it!

Amazing price, have some heat.

Yes I saw this today too and bought it at this price. Reason it's dropped is probably because a new one probably 13 will be out at the end of September but Adobe give you a complimentary upgrade if you buy a product within about 30 days of a new one being released. So chances are we cans upgrade to 13 free when it is released at the end of September free!

Excellent. paid more than this for 11 last year

Bargain!

Brilliant, got 11 and it's fantastic. I use lightroom more, but combined they are even better!

Wrong on the 60s people were easily deceived

Now where did I put my tinfoil hat.

I'm still using CS2.
If I was to buy this deal would it be able to do everything my CS2 can and more?
I get confused with the Adobe product range

Oh, and can I just say....you think £30 worth of software will replace CS2, which cost £600+?

I mean....you DID pay £600 for it, right? RIGHT?

Therefore your question makes no sense.

It's a gamble but good to know thanks!

@HedgyHoggy

There's no need to be rude towards me, I asked a legit question

As for paying £600, no I paid £40 on ebay for my CS2 a couple of years ago. Since CS2 is very old now I think I asked a fair question

Also, CS2 was available free from Adobe last year which would make it irrelevant if I paid £600 or pirated it

Not everyone is as clued up as you on the Adobe range so unless you can be a decent human being and answer politely I suggest you wash that mouth of yours out with soapy water and get off your arrogant high horse

Bought! Thanks to the OP

Excellent bought thanks OP, lets hope we can upgrade but if not still worthwhile.

Shame the world is full of em

Excellent; thank you! Just got to learn how to drive this version now. Why do they have to keep moving things?!

@ PFC Hudson. The answer to your question is no (though it does depend whether you use all the functionallity of CS). I use Adobe Lightroom 5 and have been using a trial version of Photoshop CC to decide whether I want to commit to the current offer of £7.49/ month for both it and Lightroom (offer ends tomorrow). After using CC for a month, for me it offers nothing that I can't find in elements (I had version 10 before today), so the £30 upgrade to version 12 was good for me.

Same price collected at John Lewis to, great if you live near by a John Lewis or Waitrose store for next day collection.

Great price - heat added and ordered

Yes saw this today and ordered cheapest so far heat added thanks X)

Ordered! Good deal, in my opinion an even better deal given the repeated cost of Photoshop since Adobe try to force everyone into their subscription service.

Here's the page about Adobe's complimentary upgrade, no way to tell if you're eligible without speaking to their online chat. It's very vague on timescales, using phrases such as "around the time of a new version", but worth a try for anyone who orders this! helpx.adobe.com/x-p…tml

That's a good price! I just ordered the bundle that has photoshop elements 12 and premier elements 12 which is £62 - I almost bought just premiere elements 12 a month ago for about this price so it's awesome that I've now got both. Hopefully there will be that free upgrade (though I'm hopeful rather than optimistic on that one).

Thanks OP.. will definitely be of use

What does this do that cs6 photoshop doesn't? Does it work in conjunction??

appears JL deal is available until September the 9th. Maybe that the new version launches in sept then, I which case maybe within the 30 day window for upgrade!

also looked for the premiere version and found it on JL so added a deal too.

Great price! heat!

The PC/ mac tab on amazon will cover both I take it?

Just as my next computer might be a mac, Not sure as why do they give u the options?

I believe the product allows installation on both. So an even better deal for you.

Great price and this deal heated. Personally will probably go for the JL deal.

Depends what features you want.

Elements is a cut down version of Photoshop for people who don't need all the tools PS offers. Only you know what you use is PS,

Sorry that does not seem helpful but it's like asking What does a Ranger Rover offer that a Ford doesn't' without knowing what you will use it for it its a hard question to answer.

Not quite true. Although Adobe offer the download and licence key for CS2 on their website it actually says that you're only entitled to use it if you're a legitimate owner who's purchased it. It's a convenience for those users and not a freebie for all. Many websites neglected this point.

what's the main differences between this and lightroom?

Great price. Would have bought it if I hadn't bought v11 last year. Just need a good deal on Light room now!

drpsg

what's the main differences between this and lightroom?


Phossy posted a link to a review which compares lightroom/elements etc in post 16. My understanding is that elements is a photo-editor whilst lightroom more of a photo organiser...

Not quite true

At first Adobe made a mistake on their site and didn't mention the requirement you mentioned above. Only after about a week did they add the T&Cs by which time probably half the planet had downloaded it

But like you say the blogs of the world pretty much told everyone it had become freeware and for about a week that seemed to be true

I was reading into this last night.

Photoshop CC does very details image editing, much of it isn't even aimed at photography. Professional arty stuff
Lightroom is a portfolio manager, designer, organiser and batch job processor. Ideal for Raw use. Professional organising stuff.
Photoshop elements is CC cut down to include mostly photography based editing tools and aimed more at the layman home market. Most of us on here.

There are many differences but that is how I understood the differences.

Hmm....you do appear clueless, indeed.

1. 'As for paying £600, no I paid £40 on ebay for my CS2 a couple of years ago.'

So you bought an illegal copy on eBay, glad you admit it. Why illegal, you ask? Because CS2 licences are not transferrable - only the original purchaser can use the item. Unless you bought it completely new and shrinkwrapped, which is incredibly unlikely and would selling for a couple of hundred quid even today.

2. 'Also, CS2 was available free from Adobe last year which would make it irrelevant if I paid £600 or pirated it '

Er...nooooo, it wasn't available FREE, it was FREE to those people WHO ALREADY OWNED IT. It was a download for people to access the files as the Adobe activiation servers were offline for a while. You had no right to download the files or install the software, to do so means you are using it without permission. As the Adobe website forum says...

'Re: Is Photoshop CS2 free after all or no joy?

It is categorically not free. It is for people who already own it to reinstall it as the activation servers are down.
It's been widely misrepresented because blogs, even the really big new site ones, just repost other people's content without fact checking it. There appeared to be a suggestion that Adobe would let it go but this has not materialised and the most recent official statement is:.'


So on all counts, you are wrong.

Oh and as for my original post, it was meant as a joke, because anyone who bought a real (£600) copy of CS2 would not ask such a ridiculous question.
