I've been looking at Design job postings and noticed that alot of places require experience with some top notch design programs such as Final Cut and Photoshop. I would like to learn to use Final Cut and Photoshop, but I can't afford the cost of the software. I remember that my former University had discounted software for students, but unfortunately I have graduated years ago and am not eligible for sales through them. I did find that there are some resellers that will sell student software. In fact, one reseller I have purchased from in the past when I was a student. I was wondering if I could still use the software if I purchased a student version. I don't know how else I would be able to afford something like that given that most of these programs are priced exorbitantly high for professional use. I am just trying to learn and improve my job skill set.
