My mom has received a great deal to buy software using Edu discounts (and products on sale). The sale ends on August 31st. Since switching to Mac, I have been without true software to do work on; I've been living off trial versions and Paint Shop Pro on the PC to do work, but as I get more jobs, I need to have something to get the work done. I do a lot of web design, graphic editing/design, and web work. My mother, being the generous woman that she is, said she would buy me a Wacom Graphire (the basic 4x5 one for $89) to help out (I have bought all my software, computer, etc. myself). Anyways, what should I put my money towards? -Adobe Creative Suite CS2 ($384); This is a must for Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. I also like Go Live but have limited experience with it (used a trial version). How's it as a main web authoring software? -Macromedia Studio MX ($189); This has Flash, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, etc. I am much more comfortable using Dreamweaver, though I usually do most work by hand. I am interested in learning Flash, but I think that can come later. Is this price worth the set? -1 GB of RAM from DataMem ($144); My computer will explode, I think, if I run all these on 512 of RAM, so I think upgrading is a must. I am very hesitant to spend $800 right now as I have a limited income and am trying to save up for a senior trip right now. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should get from this list? THANKS!
