I need a CS suite like this: Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, Acrobat Pro, Indesign and After Effects

I would gladly pay for a customized package like this if I could get it for like $1,700.
Unfortunately I can’t! Or should I say, unfortunate for Adobe, I can’t.
I think I’ll go for the “Trials” untill Adobe gets real about the pricing/demands for customized packages.


I know that there is a large group of people that have been waiting for this recent release so I hesitate to even say it but… will there be an update to photoshop elements? And what about more afordable versions of the software that will fill the gap in this field for those looking to learn and do more at the amature level?

GC – Simply put, they aren’t affordable as educational versions.

The inflation of British prices on these products shocks me. A dollar isn’t worth a pound, so why are we expected to hand over cash as if it is?


Holy hack!

Bloated AND over-priced.

One wonders if the ‘educational’ versions are even affordable by educators or educatees.

I’m looking forward to getting my copy of PS CS3 – my new iMac will swallow it down whole!
