Photoshop is one of the best image editing and manipulation tools that’s been used by a majority of webmasters, iPhone users, Android users and Windows users to create some top-end wallpapers, fonts, etc. Not only for the mobile platform, but Adobe Photoshop is such utility revered for its vast tool set, seemingly unlimited plugins and general, all-round power, it is out of the price range of many average users looking to learn / dabble in a little PS’ing (photoshopping). Prices remains higher than other paid alternative software out there, but today, Photoshop now becomes freeware, legally.
Currently, CS5 and 6 are available, but as a paid desktop application and while CS2 is certainly not bad, and its Adobe’s very smart move. Omitting those who’ll grab their software from unfair mediums and a quite a few would-be Photoshop users will have settled for cheaper or free substitutes, notably the GIMP. Taste the Photoshop through CS2, wouldn’t be any surprise if some users ended up playing for a newer version.
I’ being an Windows user, still prefer to go with Photoshop CS3. Now that CS2 is free of cost, must know about the real downside – aside from the prerequisite of an Adobe account – is the fact that Mac version was designed by PowerPC devices, hence you will definitely need OS X 10.2.8-10.3.8, or Rosetta, in order to grab things up and running.
