    If you're a student {or know a student who can order it for you}, you can get CS Design Standard 5.5, which comes with Photoshop CS5.1 and Adobe Illustrator CS5 for only $300. {retail value: $1300} That's what I got. Otherwise, all Photoshops are Creative Suite; the newest being 5.1.

    I got CS4 a couple of years ago for $150 on ebay -- brand new, still in it's original packaging, so you can always check there.

    Does that help at all?

    Watch the terms of use on student versions! They specify they can not be used in any sort of money making format. So if you are designing with a student version, you can get in trouble. I also got my CS4 from ebay, but I had ordered 3 times before I got a legal copy!! I got my money back each time, but it was definitely a pain in the hiney!

    Sitting here wondering where I can get an Uncle Henry!?!?!

    Yep -- and all the student {or teacher} has to do is show proof {with a student/teacher id}.

    I would say watch out with buying these kinds of programs on ebay or amazon. I bought CS4 on amazon and turned out it was a pirated copy (looked real though!). Make sure the person does have a good status as a seller. Even though this is not always the case just to let you know it happens.

    Yeah, for sure make sure that it's the full version. I have to add that the CS4 I got was the extended version {which I got for the animation}. CS5 has the animation built in and the extended version is if you want the 3D, which I never used.
