I just wondering whether anyone knew how long photo shop cs3 is likely to be on the shelf for until the next version appears? I've seen the student edition on Amazon and just wondered what proof of studentship people had provided and had been accepted (I know it gives a list but its not very clear).
And there is also a rumour that CS4 will have a 64 bit version so if you have a 64 bit os then it can take advantage of lots of ram
If you buy a student version of photoshop, then what happens is that they ship you a box, and the CD contains just the demo. It contains the application form, which you attach proof of being a student, uni docs and college card, and post it to adbobe, who within a week or so email you the license key.
CS3 is still more than enough for the average user, and there's nothing you can't really do in CS3.
Only someone who used photoshop a lot would notice the difference between versions. Between me & my bro we have CS2 & CS3, and I don't notice that many differences which aren't superficial or to do with organisation.
