Adobe Photoshop wiped the floor with the opposition years ago and is now the de facto industry standard image editing software. This latest version, Photoshop CS5, has proved to be a significant update, with some useful new features that save time and further boost productivity. Although Photoshop CS5's full retail price is steep, Adobe's education discounted prices are more reasonable. This educational licence is for those on a 2 year+ course, in school or work in education. See Adobe's website and your college IT shop for more details to ensure you qualify for this student/teacher version before buying. Adobe don't offer education discounts for upgrades, here you get a full licensed copy of top of the range `Photoshop CS5 Extended for `non-commercial' use only. Although Photoshop CS5's myriad of image editing features require considerable effort for newcomers to master, particularly compared to the cut-down budget version 'Adobe Photoshop Elements 9', there's plenty of on-line help and even videos to aid you.

At Adobe's website you can download a fully functional 30 day timed trial copy of Photoshop CS5 [or say Photoshop Elements 9 or Adobe Creative Suite CS5] to see if it suites your needs - I'd download it on a college PC though as it can be a massive 1Gb+ download. This Photoshop CS5 Extended version adds in 3D and image analysis tools that might be useful over standard Photoshop CS5 [and all standard CS5 tools are included]. For those upgrading, Photoshop CS4 had many useful interface improvements that carry over into CS5, so those on Photoshop CS3 or older would particularly benefit from this CS5 upgrade [and your old educational licenced copy of say Photoshop CS3 would still be valid on another PC, provided the user qualifies].

By A. GILL VINE VOICE on 26 April 2010
==============
== VERSIONS ==
==============
There was 64bit support in CS4, but only for Windows. It's now included for Macs too.
This review was based on my Photoshop CS5 64bit version, the program now comes
in the 2 different versions (32bit and 64bit) as people move gradually to 64bit systems.
If you've no idea what i am talking about then 32bit should be fine. Both are on the disc.

===============
== INTERFACE ==
===============
Very small change but the icons have been redrawn and look slightly different. Not a big
change but i noticed it, and was pleased with it :D

Overall interface is very familiar, the workspace switch menu is always displayed at the
top instead of being hidden in the Window menu. If you make a change to your workplace, and
then switch to another workspace, the changes made to the first will remain intact.

The Mini-Bridge is a window which allows complete access to your image files via Bridge,
without leaving Photoshop. Just like the full Bridge you can choose display options, if you
need the full features of Bridge just click the icon at the top of the screen.

=================
== PERFORMANCE ==
=================
The system requirements state at least a Pentium 4 or Athlon 64 processor and 1GB RAM and
disk space. Everyone should have more than enough, but your monitor's resolution should
ideally be at least 1280x800 which not everybody will have. Might be time for a new display.

On my i7 2.8ghz 6GB RAM it performed very smoothly, and i noticed it managed to complete tasks
quite a lot faster than when using it on an old core 2 duo machine with 2GB RAM.

I am thrilled with Amazon and their customer services. Adobe was not as helpful as it took 2 email and 11 days for Adobe to activate this product. Adobe said it would take 2 to 3 day. I found that untrue. I have used Elements 3 and 4. Adobe 6 and 7. CS2 CS4 and now CS5. I am delighted with the product and its new items in CS5. As long as you know what you are doing it is a brilliant product. Again, I am so delighted I purchased this product from Amazon as their customer services was first class in trying to solve the problem of trying to get this product activated. Well done Amazon. I did the right thing by trusting you and not purchasing on Ebay. Im a very happy customer with you and the product.

Software purchased, registration form and photo ID duly uploaded to adobe site, very quickly they closed the call accepting the registration and providing the serial number.

The serial number doesn't work, "the serial number is not valid for this product" (and I've checked and double checked it!)

I've re-opened the call, but my request for help has fallen into a support black hole. I can't install until they provide the assistance.

I bought this as an Open University (hands off evil Cameron and traitor Clegg) Student and once I received the product I sent off the proof of ownership, course attendance and photo ID (suitably edited scan of my passport as adobe don't want passport numbers, dates of birth etc.) - all by email. 24 hours later I had the key back from Adobe - very quick, no probs. In the meantime I had installed the software as the 30 day trial so all I needed to do was enter the key when I started it up. A lovely piece of software - I was using Paint Shop Photo Pro X3 but Photoshop CS5 actually starts up much quicker on my computer. It is often said that Paint Shop Pro has 90% of the abilities of Photoshop for 10% of the price - but the Photoshop is much slicker in the way it does most things - and the extra 10% of stuff is really nice. I have kept Paint Shop Pro on my machine or one or two things that aren't available in Photoshop - but for most editting after about a month I find myself going automatically to Photoshop. (I don't think it would have been worth paying the full 900 quid for extended or even 600 quid for normal Photoshop - but at 165 quid its a bargain - and when I upgrade I shall just go for the normal upgrade (current price 180 quid)).
