    Hey. I've used Photoshop, and CS2, but I want to download the CS3 Extended Trial, for Mac, to see if I want to get it for the Mac. Only problem is, I can't find the download .dmg anywhere. Adobe isn't giving out trials until July, and I can't find any other sites that have it. If anyone has it, or a site that has it, can they PM me it?

    Thanks!

    Every site that I've come across that has the demo download always links you to Adobe's page, so you might be out of luck until July.

    I thought so to, but after going through like 100 sites, I finally found one.

    Unfortunately, I had to close out firefox before I could install CS3, and lost the site. I still have the file, which I will try to upload to either megaupload/rapidshare, but I think it is to big of a file, if I get it to work, I'll PM you the link.

    Don't bother - if you had read the Adobe site, and the reason they pulled the trial downloads, you would see that whatever you install and start will expire in ONE day. Here's the link, and a blurb from Adobe.

    So if you want to try it for one day, and one day only, then go ahead. Be warned that you can NOT download and install the trial again later, due to the way Adobe installs the trial software.

    Go read the FAQ's at Abobe before you proceed.

    Uhh. Yea. My history clears every time I close FireFox. PLUS, even if it didn't I wouldn't feel like searching through every page, because they all say basically the same thing. "Mac Photoshop CS3 Trial Download" or something like that.

    actually if you had looked around the page a little, you would have seen the big fat link for the patch to fix this problem, enabling trials for 65 days.

    Anyone actually have a link to the trials?

    Good find. It looks like Adobe has re-opened the trial downloads and they are available now. There is also a link on the trial download page to get the fixup and good instructions on how to use it. It makes it good for 65 days from what I read through quickly. Here is Adobe's note.
