    I am about to order Photoshop CS2 from JourneyEd.com since I am in a University and might as well save some money.

    My question before I finalize the purchase, is there a difference from the Retail version and Education version? Any Limitations or Functionality difference? I don't want to have half of Photoshop, lol.

    Nope, there is no difference. ;) License is for Education thats why they offer it cheaper to students rather then a retail purchase. I own the same license.

    Do you use any other adobe apps? As creative suite is only $100 more. Well worth the money as this is what I ended up buying from academicsuperstore.com which at journeyed.com its $10 cheaper then what I paid ;)

    Actually I am thinking about going all out and getting the Web bundle seeing that is what I do and it has a lot of apps I could play around with.

    The only limitation is that it can't be upgraded i.e. there is no education upgrade price. If you want CS3 whenever it is released, then you have to purchase a full (educational) version all over again.

    While this is true. The EDU price isn't that much more than the retail upgrade price. Plus if you decide to do this you can sell the previous EDU version and recoup quite a bit of the new price. I love working at a college! :D

    Good to know on the upgrading.. But that said i still think buying a new EDU and selling the old one is a better way to go if your able to.

    I have the CS2 edu. suite premium, I bought it just before I received my degree. I am working on becoming successful with hopes that CS3 will seem like pennies to me. Oh, and a Porsche 911.

    I wish it seemed like pennies to me too. And i don't need a Porsche a new f-150 would do me fine. I have CS2 as well. I usually only upgrade every other time. Usually not enough changes to warrent an upgrade each time.

    The main limit on the education version is that your not allowed to use it for commerical use. Meaning your not aloud to do freelance work etc and get paid. legally

    While you apparently can upgrade the Adobe software I seem to recall that Adobe has continued Macromedia's policy of not offering upgrades for the education products the recently aquired in the merger. I am thinking of buying the Web bundle myself (theology students need creative outlets too).

    Does anyone know if I can sell my academic version?

    I have the original v1.1 of the Creative Suite and the Production Suite Academic (including FCP 4 , DVD studio pro 3, etc..)

    Can I sell these? I'd hate to just throw the discs away. I don't have them installed or registered.

    Ordinarily when you sell software you have to transfer the license to the new user. If you never installed or registered the software AFAIK you never activated the license. So I don't see a problem selling the software. Just make clear to potential buyers that the software is the academic version but unused.

    BTW, the Adobe CS academic can be upgraded to CS2 using the standard upgrade software. I called Adobe to verify this last year.

    No, on both counts. When you are done with the Education software, you either keep it or destroy it. You may not sell, transfer or give away. In order to have that right, you have to pay for the full commercial version. It doesn't matter if you never registered it. You can't resell it. You accepte4d the license when you installed the software, regardless whether you chose to register.

    Adobe License Transfer

    You may, however, transfer all your rights to use the Software to another individual or legal entity provided that: (a) you also transfer (i) this agreement, (ii) the serial number(s), the Software and all other software or hardware bundled, packaged or pre-installed with the Software, including all copies, upgrades, updates and prior versions, and (iii) all copies of font software converted into other formats to such individual or entity;* (b) you retain no upgrades, updates or copies, including backups and copies stored on a computer; and (c) the receiving party accepts the terms and conditions of this agreement and any other terms and conditions under which you purchased a valid licence to the Software. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may not transfer education, pre-release, or not for resale copies of the Software.

    I honestly thought you could not use any educational software for commercial use...Does anybody know if my educational licensed Final Cut Studio bundle can be used for commercial use?

    I don't think Apple are quite as generous with the licence terms as Adobe on this occasion.

    You might also want to check out your campuses computer store. Ours has CS2 Premium Suite for $179. A VERY generous price.
