Adobe CS2 is Free! Well Not Really…


Okay, this is kind of old news, but I still wanted to post about it because it confuse me and I get angry when confused. You wouldn’t like me when I’m mad. Or maybe you would… I don’t know. So check this out, via; Adobe CS2 is not free, but what Adobe has done is allow some of the applications of its creative suite 2 bundle to be downloaded for free. According to the forbes article, Adobe scientist Dov Isaacs said:

You have heard wrong! Adobe is absolutely not providing free copies of CS2!

What is true is that Adobe is terminating the activation servers for CS2 and that for existing licensed users of CS2 who need to re-install their software, copies of CS2 that don’t require activation but do require valid serial numbers are available.
(*Here’s the link to the Adobe Forums where this quote can be found*)

Okay, so maybe you can’t get the whole suite for free, but because of this I was able to get access to both Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Illustrator CS2 for free! Both programs were created back in 2005 but still do an amazing job of bring digital artwork to life and if you’re a poor struggling artist (like me) then follow this link for both Apple and PC versions of the software. There are also several other Adobe CS2 applications like Premiere and InDesign CS2 for free. Keen!

  1. That IS news! Now, a serious question: I have the aesthetic soul of a pet rock. Kids who wet the bed already draw better cows than I do. Can this program do anything for me, artistic-wise?

    Well, sure. Y’know if you use it and practice. In the future I plan on posting some tutorial and reference book reviews that still exist for CS2. And don’t undermine your own aesthetic soul, everyone can have an art groove. Sure we may not be good at it, but damn the world if it wants to try and stop us!

  3. Meh, it’s a tool. Any artistic skill is going to come from time and practice.

  4. Goddam it. I was afraid of that.
