Free, I say!
And I’m not even joking.
I saw something about this fly by on Twitter and had to check it out for myself and, as you can see above, it’s legit. Well, legit in as much as it’s from Adobe’s site and there’s the serial numbers but I didn’t download any of it because I have a more recent version.
Set yourself up an Adobe account and get to downloading! Let me know if you have any problems. Not that I can be all Tech Support Amy or anything for you but I can definitely edit this post to help other people.
Also? Don’t be intimidated by how complex Photoshop seems or whatever. There are plenty of tutorials on YouTube.
Edited to add:
Well, kids, all good things must come to an end and this good thing is gone.
Peter at Ars did a splendiferous job of explaining everything that happened. Go give it a read.
