Default Photoshop CS2 for FREE

I just saw this on Facebook and it may be of interest for some of you.

http://gizmodo.com/5973730/grab-phot...ree-right-here

Adobe's giving us all a late Christmas present. You can grab yourself a free, legitimate copy of Photoshop and the rest of the Creative Suite 2, right now, direct from Adobe. No catch.
Well, unless you think having an Adobe account is a catch. Anyway, apparently Adobe's tired of keeping the activation servers running to support legitimate installs of the 10-year-old CS2, so it's decided to just give it away. Sounds great to me.
Handy if all you need is a quick image editor, Photoshop CS2 will still do all the basic things, just not the new fancy smart ‘content aware‘ stuff. Free's free, so get over to Adobe.com and get downloading. [Adobe via Twitter]
Update:The install for Mac is actually for Power PC devices, so you'll need Mac OS X v.10.2.8–v.10.3.8 or Rosetta to get it working.

Default Re: Photoshop CS2 for FREE

Thanks so much for the heads up, Robyn! I downloaded the files, but I am not absolutely sure it will work with my computer. First of all, the requirements list includes having a Pentium III or IV ... and I have an AMD in my computer. I run Windows 7, not Windows XP as they list. They say it may not run properly in some new machines. Any idea where I can get more info on this?

Hugs,
Nertha

I was just there and in order for the serial numbers to work for the license you need to already have purchased CS2 and are just updating your software ... I'm not sure if it will work on Windows 7 or 8

Question Re: Photoshop CS2 for FREE

UPDATE: According to diyphotography.net, the links were only for those who had purchased CS2 and needed to re-install CS2 now that the registration servers are offline. There is not, REPEAT is not a free version of CS2 floating around.

Thanks for the clarification. I saw it on FB and obviously misunderstood what was being offered. I apologize for giving you incorrect information.
