    I was interested in getting Adobe PhotoShop and found a download site at a small fraction of the price of a boxed set with CD and instructions. Are these download sites legit? Am I getting the full, unrestricted program? I never used an electronic download of software and am skeptical considering the low price (also attracted for that same reason). Any helpful thoughts?

    That website calls it "v 9.0" I can't find anything called version 9 on Adobe's website.After PhotoShop 7 was PhotoShop CS and then and now PhotoShop CS 2.The pirates often refer to PhotoShop CS as v8.0 and PhotoShop CS 2 as v 9.0.

    Looks sketchy to me.

    Since when was the market price of XP Pro $499?

    I got my XP MCE for $134

    Perhaps this will answer your question - Quote from "Terms and Conditions" on the website you listed:
    Does that answer your question? And how about this pearl:
    There is no FAQ on that website.

    Exactly what hwy said...

    I'd also recommend Gimp. Has a steep learning curve, but it should be able to do most things Photoshop can..

    Or for that price, buy Corel's (formerly JASC's) Paint Shop Pro. Pretty impressive in that it has a lot of Photoshop's functionalities and a bit of Illustrator as well. I have also found it much easier to use than Gimp.

    There are config files on the net you can download that will make Gimp behave like Photoshop, at least in terms of keyboard shortcuts.
