    I've been trying to find a free download for PhotoStudio X. Lightening struck my eMac. I got it fixed, but lost everything. I've reloaded everything but this, and I can;t find a free download anywhere!

    Is this something you'd normally have to pay for? :confused: You don't have a copy of the original disks lying somewhere?

    If someone tells you how to pirate it, it's a ban from MR. I'm just letting you know.

    I'm not trying to get a pirate or anything! I haven't had my disk since 2003. I was just wandering if there were any free downloads available.

    Unlikely to be "free" legal downloads for such old software.

    If it's still current then your version is very likely to have been upgraded, and that means you'll probably have to buy the upgrade.

    As noted, requests for help in pirating software will result in censure.

    Begging for money on a corner is about the only "free" way.

    Just to say that it looks like that is software from an old generation.....

    You could get a much better image editor/graphics editor for free such as The Gimp...

    or you could just bite the bucket and buy Photoshop Elements (Come on I mean its only £50 or £60.....

    I use Photoshop CS4 but then again that is quite advanced

    P.S. Don't pirate it.. There are lots of developers who need the money from you buying it!! (THANKS)
    P.P.S You might check out as they sometimes have old copy's of software before it came to Shareware....

    Or try contacting the developers regarding replacement/upgrading policies that they have in place (though I have to agree with the Photoshop Elements note above). You're not the first person who has had a disaster without having a backup (apparently) sad to say. Take the lightning strike as a lesson learned!;)
