I figure it is about time for me to move up to the standard in photo editing, but I am not willing to pay $500 plus for CS2.

I know about the eBay route, and may do that (it seems that there are several legit sellers).

Any other suggestions?

Thanks

Mike

I'd probably go the e-bay route. Are you sure you need CS2? I've ready several comparisons of Elements 3 and CS2 concluding that only professionals are going to need CS2.

Take a look at the schools in your area. If they offer classes in PhotoShop, you are likely to qualify for the academic discount if you take the class.

I was able to buy an older version of Photoshop very cheaply. Adobe is now letting users of any prior version upgrade to CS2 for $150. This is the best deal I have found so far. In fact, I ordered the CS2 upgrade a couple days ago.

CS2 only for the Pros??? Don't think so. There are MAJOR differences in the way of doing things with the new CS2

>> "Adobe is now letting users of any prior version upgrade to CS2 for $150."

I did this also. Bought a legit version of PS 5.0 from eBay and then ordered the retail upgrade for £130. Problem is the upgrade doesn't work unless you have 5.5 onwards (they don't tell you this one the website, on the box or anywhere that I could find). Luckily someone gave me their old copy of 6.0 which worked fine for the upgrade.
