So, after all these years of using the "borrowed" copies of Photoshop and Adobe CS that go around the design school here, I've finally made the plunge and purchased my very own copy of Adobe CS 3! I knew that I was going to get a liscense before I left LSU, as we get a huge discount through our campus software vendor ($340.00 for the Design Premium Edition). I figure I can justify it with all the recent sales I've been making of my digital prints.<br><br>Only problem is, I may have to wait up to two weeks just for them to ship the effin' discs.<br><br>
I swore the minute I made ANY money from an app that I'd go legal. That happened a couple of years back when I sold a digital painting using Painter 8. I immediately ordered Painter and I have to say I felt really good about myself. <br><br>I know some would argue but if it hadn't been for the fact I could use and come to love the application for "free" I'd have NEVER bought it.<br><br>Glad you're doing the right thing. <br><br>
Back in the 80's with the Apple II I think I was one of the 1000 people who bought Appleworks. At around that time it was said that there were more copies of Appleworks than all other software total. I believer it. I Paid $256 for it in 1985 dollars. Not very many other people did I know. I used the hell out of that and never regreted it.<br>dave<br><br><br>
There are 10 kinds of people. Those that understand binary and those that don't.
I went the Community College route ~ Houston CC was cheap, near by and at the time, high quality. This was before ID, so Quark ruled. Three of us put our heads and what little cash we had together and each of us bought one of the majors. Quark, PS and Illustrator. We traded, we were illegals, but we all went straight once we got paying gigs.<br><br>And yes, you could do it with Quark back then, and the install was, like, 300 floppys. Really. OK, maybe it was just 275. <br><br>I wanted a Mac soooooo bad, and my PC husband was skeptical, so he got to looking at it ~ he was into every other OS/language there was at the time ~ and was really impressed. I was able to buy a 6500 through the school dirt cheap. I still have that baby, too. <br><br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue]Just push play ~ They're gonna bleep it anyway ~ </font color=blue><br><br>

I saw a pack of floppies on sale at the Kinko's behind my apartment the other day. I really wanted to ask the guy if anyone still bought those things, but decided I didn't want to risk getting into a tech discussion with the Kinko's guy.<br><br>
