Ellie,
Be sure to check out Academic Superstore. If you have anyone in your family who is a student K-college, or if you are a teacher (I can't remember), you can get huge discounts. Don't pay full price for it. ;)

Gee, Carol, I didn't realize you can use "any year student" from K-college. I just got my Suite last year thru my son being in college (ordered from JourneyEd.com). Plus, I thought it had to be related to the curriculum (sp?) - he's doing Game Design and needed to take Photoshop & Illustrator classes. You mean I could've had Photoshop years ago at such a reasonable price??????? I "may have" been another Dave Cross or Scott Kelby by now!! :lol:

LOL, yep any student. You get a bigger discount for a college student but you still get a really great discount for an elem school kid. I used my third-grader :-)

YES! Go to Academic Superstore and click on the links. There are two levels of discount, one for college students and one for younger. There is also one for teachers but I didn't even bother to look. I think as a college student, you can get it for $400. Yes, the entire CS4 Design Premium!!!!

If you have a student ID, its easy, if you don't, I think you have to show grades or something from the school showing your enrollment.

Good luck!!!

Wow, so you can benefit even if you just take a weekend or a "so many weeks" college course? I got the Design Premium CS3 Suite last year for 299.00, which included Photoshop Extended. I see the CS4 Suite also includes the Extended version of Photoshop and it's only $100 more - not bad. Journeyed and Academic Superstore seem to have competitive student pricing.

I don't know exactly what the requirements are so I don't know if a short course would work. But if I recall, you certainly did not have to be in a related subject. Its worth it for everyone to check before purchasing.

I got my CS3 through my son-a college student. Great discount-Illustrator is super duper for smoothing out the shakies--I love the way it does what I want, not what I'm telling it to do! Just can't figure out those darn conversions to photoshop...You're right-I need to take a class-thank you for the sites, Carol! I will check them out this afternoon!
DH got me a tremendous book on calligraphy, which I'm going to translate to Illustrator (I can do calligraphy with a pen, so it'll be a fairly easy transition-hopefully), and that's why I'm itching to learn much more about Illustrator-thing is, I need to start at the very beginning with the program...like how to make a new document...

Yes, I 2nd that site.
Another thing to do, if school related is to go thru adobe. Great deals with them. Its a pain on their site, but...they are helpful on the phone.

Thanks for the info. I'll have to check out the student pricing. My daughter is a senior in high school... but she is taking college courses for credit so she has a college id. I'll have to check it out for sure!
