    CS3 Upgrade
    I've just ordered My Macboook Pro and want to install CS3 on it but this copy is an Upgrade and so is my CS2, CS1, they are all upgrades from Photoshop 7 which are all on My G4.

    Do i need to install Photoshop 7 then All the other CS's to Get CS3 on my MBP?
    I don't have the MBP yet to try it.

    No. It'll just ask you to insert your CS2 CD to verify upgrade eligibility. Pretty easy process

    Ah great, Thanks for that.

    Thought I was going to have to spend hours installing 10 years worth of adobe products!

    So does that mean that someone could buy the upgrades for CS2 and CS3 thus saving themselves loads of money.

    It seems that if this is the case then the upgrade system is decidedly flawed.

    On a slightly related note, as i can't justify the 500+ price tag for CS3, is Elements a good budget imaging editing program?

    I did not need a disk, simply input my serial number from CS2. CS3 unlike previous upgrades does not use the version before it. All new folders/files etc are used so there is no reason to have CS2 on the system unless you want two photoshop applications

    back when I was a PC guy I had a CS2 upgrade and installed it directly to my computer. It didn't even ask about my owning any previous version (which I didn't) and it installed just fine. I'd expect CS3 to do the same, but I got a free full version of design premium so I don't know for sure.
