Is there a way to get Photoshop for less then the 600$ price they have it for, I have the windows version but I can't get it on my Powerbook and I don't wanna dish out even more money for a new copy of it. Any suggestions?

I suppose you could opt for PhotoShop Elements. I think it was recently updated to version 3?

It might also be an idea to check out GraphicConverter. I'm not 100% sure, but I think you can also do some simple editing stuff with it.

There's always Gimp. It's free, runs on X11, very similar to Photoshop.

If you have the full version it should have both the PC and Mac versions on the disk, unless of course you actually mean "any" instead of "more".

Elements 2 was PC & Mac (I know that as I have a copy) but from the ads' it appears the newer versions are either/or. Strangely the Mac version is advertised at about a tenner less than the PC version.

One of the PC magazines has a free copy of version 3 on it this month so they must be up to version 4 by now.

Since when?
I have an entire adobe suite which includes Photoshop 7 for Mac... No Windows version on the CDs anywhere.

And I have an Acrobat CD for Windows - no Mac version.

Am I missing something? Do the new CS versions have both versions Mac and Windows versions on the same CD??? (two for the price of one???)

I only have one CD for Elements and it has both versions on. Maybe this is a Europe thing, i.e maybe they sell them together here for some reason but sell them separately in the US?

Either that or maybe it's the difference with the suite as opposed to the stand alone version of Photoshop but down in my local PC World there is only one Photoshop Box on the shelf and it says PC or Mac so I always assumed it had both versions in the box.

Was your suite bundled with a machine or bought retail?

I think I jave seen Elements come as PC and Mac in one box...

But I've never seen Photoshop and others.
Mine was not a bundle.
I also have two Acrobat boxes, one specifically says "Macintosh" and the other says "Windows".

Also all Photoshop boxes I've seen in local stores are either Windows or Mac. Not both.

Such as this one at CompUSA. Under Platform and Requirements - all it says is PC/Windows. Not Mac.

I WISH they would have both versions in one box!

Become friends with a student in college or K-12. They get education discounts and can get the whole Creative Suite for about $300-$400

Photoshop Elements 3 (just released in Oct/Nov '04 so no new version soon) comes either in Mac or Windows not both. While the case doesn't specify which version it is, if you look at the install CD itself, it will clearly say Macintosh or Windows.

Photoshop CS (8.0) - This is a little tricky, I have the Macintosh only version that I bought from school for $499 USD and has only the Mac version on it. My brother bought CS from Adobe directly (~$399 upgrade) and his has both versions on the same disc but it will not let you install both versions. He installed the Windows version and then tried to install the Mac version on my parents eMac and it was like the Mac version wasn't even there anymore even though you could see when searching the disc.

I think your best bet is to call Adobe and if you purchased a prior version (Mac or Windows) they should let you upgrade for less than what the new version would cost.

Just my 2 cents.

It wouldn't even let him get to the installation, it was like the Mac version was missing from the CD after the Windows version was installed. We tried just pulling the program off the CD and into the Applications folder to see if it would start up and then ask for a serial number but it kept complaining about original files missing so we just gave up and bought our parents Photoshop Elements 3, which I guess was for the best.
