    Looking for a LEGIT copy of Photshop CS3. With box and serial # and everything.

    I've searched everywhere and they all still run in the mid $500's.

    Know of any place? :wiggle:

    I don't know the difference between the different PS products, but I got PS Elements 7.0 at Best Buy for $150 when I bought my laptop in March. I just figured the price went down to something more reasonable because of the bootleggers. What more would one get by purchasing a $500 copy of PS?

    fuck elements. it minus whale be paint.

    Here's a list of things NOT in elements that are in Photoshop:

    • More tools and features that work with high-bit images
    • Adjustments: Color Balance, Match Color
    • Layer Masks, Layer Comps, and Quick Mask mode
    • Some adjustment layers (curves, color balance, selective color, channel mixer)
    • CMYK and LAB color modes
    • Combine multiple exposures to create high dynamic range (HDR) images
    • Channels Palette
    • Recording custom Actions (for batch processing)
    • Smart Objects, Smart Guides
    • Lens Blur Filter
    • Vanishing Point Tool
    • Pen tool and paths palette
    • Editing History Log
    • Text on a path, advanced text formatting
    • Advanced Layer Style manipulation
    • Advanced Color Management
    • Advanced web features such as rollovers and slicing
    • Customizable tool presets, keyboard shortcuts, menus and workspace
    No curves, layer masks or pen tool... :ugh: I think that's all I use.

    Don't really need CS4 and the price tag it commands.

    Look at the local college or community college book store. I've bought tons of software from there for dirt cheap. Most of the time they don't even check if you're a student or not.

    Are you looking to get it for commercial purposes? Keep in mind, the majority of software sold in academic book stores are "Student" licenses opposed to being full commercial versions of the software. The functionality is the same, but if you're concerned about being legitimate, buying academic software for commercial work kinda defeats the purpose.

    Co-worker bough it for like 250 or some shit like that. Full version too. College book store FTW!

    I'll double check on the price though. I do remember it being dirt cheap.
