    this is really pissing me off...
    all through college i was able to snag free editions of photoshop, illustrator, indesign, etc..

    and now i have a new beastly badass computer running on Vista, and i can't find a single rip of the Creative Suite :rl:

    sigh, but maybe i should bite the bullet..
    I do actually want to do design/photography on my own for a living :dunno:

    FUCK i even download ripped versions of Photoshop CS3 and i can't even view my RAWs from my 40D :wtc:

    pic of said cursed computer

    I have a legit version that I've copied and given out to a few people.

    What's it worth to you?

    yes, i lurk, does that make my response illegitimate?

    to clarify, i found a bunch of cs3 torrents on isohunt if you care to investigate. in my experience they have been reliable, but haven't tried getting cs3 for about a year.

    nah brah i wasn't putting you down
    but at the time i had no idea what isohunt was.

    torrents blow my mind.. finding servers, setting up your router, finding a port, testing speeds, shit gets over my head quick :eek3:

    I can get JUST photoshop pretty easily, but i must have Bridge, Illustrator, and InDesign.

    Thanks for any help fellas.

    dymondboy2f, how much did you pay for yours?
    i see some sites listing the CS3 Premium for $700, where-as legit sites (like amazon) have it listed for $1,300 :eek3:

    there's really nothing that complicated about torrents. all you need is a program to handle torrents (utorrent is my recommendation). once you have that installed, click on the torrent file you want and open it with said program.

    within the program you can tell it to download the file to a specific place on your computer. i've never had an issue with setting up a router or finding ports, etc. but it really depends on your internet service provider. i'm sure if you post an issue in the computers and programming forum they'll help you out.

    isohunt is a pretty reliable source for torrents. other sites like thepiratebay are big too. if you start using torrents, i'd keep my eye on any article related to them in the news since they've come under attack recently.

    Torrent it. Don't throw all that money away when you can get it for free.

    if you REALLY want to get a legit copy, have a student friend buy it for you. i think there's a pretty big student discount, as with most software packages.

    Oh and fwiw, for someone who wants to run their own business, buy the fucking shit you cheap ass! And that goes for all of you who aren't running a legit copy. I can't understand why you guys want to skimp out on something that you'd be miserable without.

    Besides downloading, it's only 10 minutes of work, if that.

    just buy it. it's one of the few software packages that are really worth it. Not to mention that if you got caught using an illegal version professionally you're going to end up with a really sore ass.

    the student edition licenses of software explicitly say its for educational use ONLY, not to be used for professional use. you may as well pirate it if you go the student route.

    if youre making money using the software then just buy it man. go get a bus license, and write it off as a business expense.
