Actually, according to CNET, that isn't the case.
http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-57 ... -for-free/

Quote:
There has been clarification since this story broke. Adobe has not released the CS2 software for free. Instead, it has cancelled its CS2 license management servers, so for those with existing licenses it is now offering downloads that do not require contact with the licensing servers. This service is only going to be available for those with existing Adobe CS2 licenses, which will be verified when creating the Adobe account to download the software.

oh man. :-(

thanks for the clarification. bleh.

::edit:: wait, no! read the comments. it's fine.

We may have heard wrong by interpreting this as an official statement from Adobe, but in actuality Adobe IS providing it for free. You can get it right from the Adobe site without any authentication. I think the only "oops" here is Adobe's by perhaps making this mistake and now only realizing it was actually a good move, so they're keeping it available.

there are more under that comment.

ahh interesting. If it works, then go for it. I'd try it at least. I just didn't want someone to get excited, try to install it/do whatever and then adobe put the brakes on.

Plus it's SUPER OLD. It's PowerPC code, so it won't run on modern Intel Macs, in particular.

kinda. they worked under Rosetta up until (and including) Snow Leopard.. so if you're not on Lion yet, you're in luck!

i'm used to pre-CS photoshops, so these'll be great for me. :-)

i love indesign. seriously. like, so much!

They sort of worked under Rosetta. My old (legit!) copy of Photoshop 4 or 5 or whatever stopped working a couple of upgrades ago.

I saw this on my camera clubs website last night. Very excited because I badly need an editor for photos that does more than the basics. Installing now so I will let you know if it works on the latest updates on mac.

*edit*..... didn't work. crepe it!

CS 2 is what I have. It works fine under Windows 7/8, but no longer under Lion.
