    Anyone know where I can buy Photoshop CS3 for under or close to a $100?

    Adobe CC is now monthly subscription service.

    Basically anything close to $100 will be a pirated copy (don't buy it!), considering full retail copy costs much more.

    That is free, but it works only with Photoshop CS3.

    Okay, so I am guessing I would need to purchase CS3 then download that? Can you send me some links where I can buy cs3 or cs6 cheap? (Non-pirate)

    I am pretty sure you can still do the conversion. The DNG format can work with more than just photoshop. Adobe doesn't place any restrictions on it. It's just that it never really took off that well.

    Yes DNG can work outside of photoshop, but the "download" link is for an Adobe software plugin that won't work without Adobe software.

    I'm not sure this is true.

    I haven't used it in a long time. As I recall though it can spit out a converted file without piping it through photoshop.

    You can probably find a copy on eBay pretty cheap, just be sure to find a reputable seller and that you're not buying a student license.

    Why do you want Photoshop?

    Come to think about it, Lightroom would be a good option for you. Around $100.


    Well, seems like you are right but basically any modern photo editor that's worthwhile will be able to read RAW files. There's no need for such software.

    That's why I don't use it. I considered writing a raw --> linear EXR processor , but I can't find a good library of camera data.

    Adobe has a transfer-of-ownership program. If you buy a copy of PS, just give Adobe a call, and ask if the reported license qualifies for their transfer scheme. Then download the appropriate form and fill it out with the seller.
    I also believe Elements has become more Photoshop in the last versions. I still have a Photoshop Light 6.0 version that came with a scanner, and boy that was good Photoshop for little money! They completely messed up with Elements 1.0, but it seems to have got back towards the ancient Photoshop Light concept.

    I found this on eBay.
    Unfortunately, most of the results of 'Photoshop CS3' on eBay is either instructional videos or 'Photoshop compatible.'
    The link that I provided is for PC, by the way, and it's the cheapest I could find.:)
    (If the pricing is in another language, sorry! I'm on vacation right now.:D)

    Because it's the oldest version of Photoshop that can run on Mavericks.

    Which actually... Thank you for that, as I have a copy of CS3 on my G5 and never knew that it would run on the MBP.

    The budget that you have fixed will not enough to buy the original photoshop software.
