Middlun's school have told her she needs Photoshop for art. IOt seems all very complex on Adobe website, monthly plans, clouds etc.

All I want is basic photoshop on my PC at home. What version do I need?

You can't these days, they've turned it into a subscription model, just get an Adobe Photoshop subscription via Adobe Creative Cloud.

It does but it's an old version. Have they specified which version she needs? The latest is Adobe Photoshop CC - the Creative Cloud version.

No they haven't. I think at that price I'll take a punt, thanks Jo

iirc there is a school and student package deal for a reasonable price.
if it is just to go on a PC and for basic ( but really rather clever ) stuff and it isn’t about learning current state of the art digi media but is for image creation/manipulation etc CS2 is available as an out of licence freebie

the full creative suite would take quite a specialised course to get full use of it , at least a BA and probably about 5 yrs post grad at a guess.

i would ask what package the school thinks is required

i bought CS3 in full when it was about a year old, photoshop is awesome but i only use a tiny part of it when i need to do a dry lab job that is even better than a wet lab job to make a photo look nice or find the detail from a low resolution snap

I'll just mention Gimp, though I assume it is no use for the course.
It's pretty good for free software.

Well you never know: one day we might get new members who want advice on photo editing software...

Last time I bought Photoshop Elements (version 14, I think), you had to search pretty hard on the Adobe website, but the downloadable, non-subscription versions of all their products were hidden away on there somewhere. I would hope that if they do stop producing the one-off purchase versions of their software that someone else will come along and fill the gap in the market - I for one don't use it often enough to justify a monthly subscription, and I suspect that there are many others in the same boat.
