5.0 out of 5 stars Adobe Academic Software Tips May 18, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc
*** Please Note: I'm unable to reply to any comments. Amazon has taken this privilege from me. I'm very sorry.

Over the past several months, I've purchased the Student and Teacher Editions (academic versions) of Adobe CS5 Premium, Adobe Dreamweaver CS5, Photoshop CS5 Extended and Acrobat X Professional. Because of my recent Amazon purchase of Adobe CS5 Premium, Adobe graciously sent me via FedEx a free upgrade to Adobe CS5.5. This free upgrade was approved by Adobe after I submitted my Amazon proof-of-purchase and my CS5 serial number.

For anyone intending on purchasing academic software from Adobe, I suggest they first try out the 30-day trial versions, and then if still interested, sign up for an Adobe account. It makes things much easier during the verification stage by having your account already set up.

The entire verification process is very easy and it helps to have your scanned ID or any additional paperwork ready ahead of time. I received all of the serial numbers, which were four separate submissions, in less than 24 hours. Adobe says that it could take up to two business days for verification.

The following might be some helpful information:

Adobe allows you to install and activate your purchased software onto two computers. I have CS5.5 installed and activated on two computers that are connected to a home network. I am able to 'run' duplicate programs (ex. Photoshop & Photoshop, Dreamweaver & Dreamweaver, etc.) within CS5.5 on both computers at the same time without any indication of licensing issues. Activation is completed in the background during installation.

To install and activate your Adobe software on a third computer, you must first 'de-activate' the software on one of the other two computers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Deal for the Right Users August 3, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc
At work I have Adobe Master Collection installed on both a Windows machine and an OSX machine. For home, I don't need that much manpower but I do need Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator, Acrobat, and Dreamweaver so this package is perfect.

These programs are industry standards for design and web applications and are the ones used by the experts. Anyone shopping for this software should already be familiar with what the applications do, and, hopefully, how to use them. They should also have a powerful enough machine to handle this software. Otherwise, there are plenty of simpler, cheaper (even free) programs that will meet their needs.

I would not consider criticizing CAD software or statistical packages because I wouldn't know what I was talking about. I do know design software and Adobe CS5.5 is currently the best you can get for high end applications using powerful hardware.

A year later: CS6 is out and I tested it for 3 months. Loved some of the new features in Photoshop but not enough to pay $413 for it. However, if you have to buy this software, pay the extra money and get CS6.

Adobe Suite, particularly Photoshop Extended, is simply the best there is in graphic software. I have been using Photoshop since version 6 and have upgraded along the way as I could afford it. For this purchase, I followed 171st paang's advice (be sure to read his review) and downloaded directly from Adobe's web site. To register the software, I uploaded the proper University ID and that's all there was to it. Great software for my purposes, which is photograph restoration and just enhancing my own photos. Friends and family think I'm a great photographer but it's just that I run all of my photos through Photoshop first (they also think I'm a few pounds lighter). It's great fun and if used for professional purposes, it can be a life-saver (didn't noticed the green thing on the bride's tooth when you took the photo?)! If you have used previous versions of Adobe, you won't be sorry if you get this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love Photoshop November 25, 2011
By Rhonda
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
My only complaint is that when I sent off my documentation the first time they (Adobe) could not find it. So I figured I'd just continue using it, once my 30 day trial expired and I tried to register when I resubmitted my documentation a second time that's when they found the information. Apparently, you need to have the trial version expire before they can even see the product number. It would have been a lot easier had I known that in the beginning. I teach Photoshop and it's great to have the program at home so I can do work related things. I found the installation and updates easy. This version (CS5.5) does not come with the pattern maker and the contact sheet but you can go to[...] and download the plug-in bundle update. I found it by searching "contact sheet plug-in" at [...] or just copy and paste this link

Amazing, intuitive software from Adobe, as always. 1300.00 off retail for students and faculty can't be beat. If you're a student, you should pick this up even if you're not taking any graphic art classes.
