Upgrade offer from Adobe for CS5
 
Not sure how many of you use Photoshop Elements 6,7 or 8 and would like to upgrade to Adobe's CS5. Now may just be the time.

I received an e-mail the other day from Adobe with a coupon code of:
getPSCS5

The offer is for the full version of CS5 at $299.00 which is $400 off the normal list. AND, you don't have to be a student to get the price.

I pulled the trigger on it and am looking forward to playing with the features.

Sounds like the deal Adobe gave DSLR users back in 2005-06 when many bodies of various brands came packed with Photoshop Elements. Users with those CD's were able to upgrade to Photoshop for half price, which is when I moved up from Elements 2.0 to Photoshop CS. Three upgrades later at $195 or so each, CS5 has now cost me a total of close to what the full street price of CS5 is today, just spread out over 5 years!

Hi Greg,

I've always wanted to get the full version of CS-X Photoshop. But, never got an offer to upgrade @195per. I would have been quite happy to spread the cost over the 5yrs to arrive at CS5 today.

those $195 upgrades are for current Photoshop users to move from CS2, 3 or 4 to CS5.

In around 18 months or so when CS6 comes out, you'll get your chance! I skipped CS3 and could have skipped CS4 and gone straight from CS2 to CS5, but CS4 was a serious upgrade to CS2 and when I saw the new noise filters in CS5, they got me again.

Still happily using CS plus noiseware. I use canon software for my raw conversions. I really can't see anything in any release since I would pay more than $100 for

I have pre-CS version, would this still count? :)
