I'm no professional, I've been using Paint.net for years, and I love it, but Photoshop is so much faster. It really is a good product.

Oh I hope CS5 fixed some major bugs (I have CS3 now). Adobe software went to **** after they bought out macromedia...


Anyway I'm afraid to install the trial for fear of the Adobe installer (which is supposedly missing....).

For those who don't know the Adobe CS4 trial hijacked your system and wouldn't let you open your legal bought and paid for CS3 until you had a CS4 license. And good luck reinstalling CS3 because even using app cleaner programs, you couldn't reinstall CS3 once the CS4 trial was on the machine because halfway through the CS3 install it asked for the CS4 disks!

Luckily my machine was backed up on time machine and I was able to recover my CS3 by simply copying the folder back in but my coworkers were not so lucky and had to reimage the machine.

Adobe had no solution to this either but instead recommended to upgrade to the "great new features" of CS4....


If someone can confirm that the crappy installer is gone I may try this...

These CS5 news only posted here so the :apple: fanboys can express their hatred towards Adobe, right?

Stop trolling.

I'm curious to see how CS5 performs and how it functions seeing as Adobe redid them in Cocoa. I'm not expecting a whole lot, but hopefully, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

And for those wondering about Fireworks, rumour is they did nothing to it. Just took CS4, with all those bugs, and bundled it with the CS5 suite... so don't hold your breaths ;)

Either that, or it was posted to once again let people post "fanboy" in hopes that it would be considered clever this time.

I am interested to try out PS.

I'm sure the question everyone here (or just me?) wants to know is if the iPhone app stuff is indeed included.

Time for some basement lawyering.. doesn't releasing that open Adobe up for a suit from Apple for releasing software to enable TOS infringement? An example is Blizzard vs MMOGlider.

Hey I'm an Apple fanboy through and through, but I have to say CS5 is stoked - can't wait to get it.

Just because Apple and Adobe are at each others throats doesn't mean the users have to be!

I think both companies need to understand that!

Downloading Master Collection CS5 now :D
Last year they didn't allow you to download Collections as trials, only individual applications. I want to try them all! (Pokemon).

Another idiot post by a troll.

Whats funny is its actually EXTREMELY rare to find an "Apple Fanboy", what isn't rare is the amount of trolls and apple haters who do nothing but bitch about the non-existant fanboys.

I downloaded and installed my download-version of Master Collection. Fiddling with the apps now. However, what I find rather weird: Only some of the apps are actually 64bit. For instance, Illustrator or Flash still open up as 32-bit, whereas Photoshop or Premiere Pro are 64-bit.

I seriously believed they made it all 64-bit, as it was advertised that way. :-/

Anyone knows any details about this?

and how much is it again? two million?

I'm lucky: I only have to upgrade Photoshop CS3 -- if there is actually anything significant to upgrade to AND Adobe won't upgrade CS3 come CS6.

I held onto v7 for the longest time without upgrading, and when CS4 announced that ONLY CS users could upgrade, I bought one of MacMall's last remaining copies of CS3.

DAILY price check Adobe products at Software Media for the best deal. They often have just below list of other products, but usually keep Adobe products quite low -- but you have to check daily. (They don't have CS5 yet … alas.)
