Upgrading is a TOTAL NIGHTMARE... July 19 2007
By Dustin Williams - Published on Amazon.com
I have been very excited about upgrading to the new Photoshop -- well, until now...

As a college-level educator, I wanted to buy the new Photoshop so that I could help my students with their assignments. I had the Creative Suite CS2 edition on my computer and wanted to upgrade my Photoshop portion to CS3. I called Adobe's sales department on two different occasions to see if this type of an upgrade was possible. Their response was that everything was good-to-go. In other words, you shouldn't have any problems upgrading. Also, just to be on the safe side, I checked their website, carefully read the requirements for upgrading, etc -- and they all say that upgrading is possible. "If you have a copy of the Photoshop software installed on your computer, you qualify!", they say...

Unfortunately, it's NOT TRUE... Here's what I found out:

1) Academic editions do not qualify for upgrading -- and no, they will not upgrade them either, even if you beg and plead... "I've spent 339 dollars on this product from Amazon, which I cannot return - and you say that I cannot use it, even though I have Photoshop CS2 legitimately installed on my machine?"

2) Also, to my surprise, I found out that Adobe insists that once you buy the suite edition, you have to STAY with the suite -- even if you hear that the new version is considerably buggy and constantly crashes. This is the reason why I wanted to only buy Photoshop. However, Adobe does not allow for this to happen.

As you can probably tell, I'm quite frustrated, as I have spent several hours on their technical support line battling with them over what my options are -- even though their sales department told me I was "good to go"... They finally worked things out for me, but it was NOT FUN.

P.S. - If you love a good challenge, call their technical support line -- their tech people are from India. This should say plenty about how easy it is to get someone who understands your problem.

Adobe Installer PAIN July 8 2007
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Forget putting this on two of your computers, they require you to now buy 2 copies. This is a real pain. Sure you can go back and forth and authorize it each time, what a bother; Adobe has gone greedy and given us a pain to use their products. Hey Adobe, I know it's a single license, but you make it a bother...I can really only use one computer at a time! NO TRUST!
I will skip every other version to get even! TRUST ME PLEASE! I think you guys are doing okay at the bank!
The product is good but takes more resources every version, filled with glut. I have not tried the video features yet, but they look very cool.

Concerns about Adobe Sept. 2 2007
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I have not upgraded yet from CS2 to CS3 and was just checking out the pricing on amazon and read the reviewer who said Adobe would not let him install his Photoshop software on two computers at the same time. This is in direct contradiction to what I've been told previously by Adobe and that is that Photoshop can be installed (and used) on both your desktop and laptop.

I called Adobe customer service and the person who answered was not equipped to answer this simple question about the software so she transfered me to Adobe SALES who told me that I can do this. When I tried to ask how and explain that my concern came from reading a review that said Adobe did not allow it he told me I would have to talk to Customer Service.

So Sales says this can be done, Customer Service cannot communicate.

Significant upgrade from CS2. Sept. 17 2008
By Michael Wazowski - Published on Amazon.com
I found CS3 to be a really worthy upgrade. It runs faster than CS2 on same machines - even including older G4/G5 Macs. For Intel Macs, the speed gain is even more significant. The Bridge interface has improved a lot. There is a nimber of other improvements, and at the same time, the interface has been kept consistent, so there is no downtime looking where the buttons are now, etc., even if you are upgrading from Photoshop 7.

CS1 was the upgrade to skip, but CS3 I recommend.

The Extended version's extra features are very handy for what we do in our biomedical microscopy research. Now we can make measurements in Photoshop directly, and tally up and export those measurements.
Not a single install/upgrade problem here. July 13 2008
By Michael Wazowski - Published on Amazon.com
I am ordering another copy for my group at work and just felt the need to balance some folks' bad experiences here. Mine has been excellent, no trouble at all. Adobe does allow you to install it on 2 computers - actually, you can install on any number but can have activated only two at a time. This has worked well for me on our 5 Macs, starting from CS2 (I skipped CS1). These Macs range from PowerBooks through PowerMac G5s through Intel MacBook Pro. Never a problem with installation or upgrade.

As far as the product itself is concerned, I found CS3 to be a really worthy upgrade. It runs faster than CS2 on same machines - even including G4/G5, not just because it now runs natively on Intel. The Bridge interface has improved significantly. A bunch of other improvements while keeping the interface very consistent even with your old PS 7 and earlier, so there is no downtime looking where the buttons are now...
CS1 was the upgrade to skip, but CS3 I recommend.

The Extended version was very welcome for what we do in our biomedical microscopy research. Now we can make measurements in Photoshop directly, with some nice features to tally up and export those measurements.

Sorry, no time for longer review now, but I'll try to answer any comments here. I am not an Adobe employee :)
