    Adobe is blowing out much of the Student and Teacher editions of their software for 80%. Use coupon SAVE80EDU to get the discount. Photoshop CS5 is $40. It's not listed, but if you call Lightroom is $17. You have to be a student, teacher or work at a school to qualify for these editions. If you have grade school kids, they qualify as well. I'm sure your 2nd grader wouldn't mind letting mom or dad use their copy of Photoshop when they are at school.

    Holy cow. I'm going to get Photoshop. I have Elements but it annoys me, I'm used to the full version but didn't want to pay.

    So just to confirm (as I have LR in my cart), the coupon code doesn't work. But if you call in an order to Adobe they will manually override it/apply it?

    No. Call up Adobe and order it over the phone, don't order it online.

    Hm... they might have hit their limit. They started last night and it was still working this morning.

    These are great buys, but be aware that the student and teacher versions won't qualify for upgrades to LR4 or PS 6.

    300 euros for the European student version. Makes a lot of sense.

    nice. definitely legitimate - it is advertised all over Adobe's site. CS6 is right around the corner, with reports of a first half of 2012 release. but I'm still on CS3 and I know I won't have the money for CS6 when it is released, so this is a GREAT deal for someone who doesn't need the very latest CS6 will offer.
    now... off to catch up on what I'll miss with CS6... ;)

    That is incorrect:

    search student. now, I'm not sure what pricing model will be enforced, but it is, indeed, upgradeable.

    According to the CSRs at Adobe, these do qualify for the upgrades.

    wow at these prices i have to get one .I am currently taking a Photoshop class (Digital Imaging) and this would save me needing to go into the lab all the time to do work. My only question is which Photoshop version should i get , I don't know the differences between extended, standard and Premium editions.

    Is it different for individual titles? In this case of my Creative Suites I definitely upgraded my academic CS4 to a full CS5 (and onwards...)

    CSR? what is this?

    And no you can't upgrade them , not directly anyway{unless they have changed how they do things since I was in school}. There is a way from what I understand to upgrade to the commercial version and then you can upgrade that{but the price ends up being the same as just getting the commercial version in the first place!}.
