This is the real software, at a less expensive price than you can get directly from Adobe under the Student Discount. It is an easy install. You do have to provide proof of being a student or teacher, by sending a copy of the student ID and schedule from the school email address, but that's easy. You get immediate confirmation and your license/serial number code, so you are up and running in a very short time. If you do not provide this information, the software will shut down and lock up after 30 days, so make sure you're eligible before you purchase this version. The Amazon Seller that supplies it ships quickly. It was a good experience.

I actively use CS5.5 versions of Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Indesign, and (occasionally) Illustrator. I was able to use CS6 for three months when it was in beta testing and thought I could go back to 5.5 with no problem.

I find myself constantly wishing I had some of the features in CS6 but can't justify the cost when I have such a recent version. I take art photos for display and always have to adjust perspectives to make frames square. This was much easier in CS6. I never use auto levels (to adjust color) in 5.5 but they worked great in 6. The blur gallery is superior in CS6 and Content Aware (the ability to erase objects) was spectacular.

I highly recommend this suite for users who are willing to invest the time to create professional quality multimedia projects.

Addendum: Because I was unwilling to fork over another $400+ for the upgrade (even though I want it), I am now considering Adobe's Creative Cloud. Right now I can get an academic price of $20 a month to "rent" use of the entire Adobe Suite. Although at the end of a year I will have paid $240 for use of the software, I'll still own CS5 and might then be willing to pay for a CS7 upgrade.

Addendum: Am now a contented Adobe CC user. Because of the ease of maintaining the latest versions and the expansion of offerings, I am now using about eight of their products and my multimedia skill set has expanded. I am a bigger fan than ever.

I used my school email and the adobe site knew which school I went to, which was a surprise because it is not very big. Anyway, I had a pdf of my ID, invoice and transcript ready to upload, but after I confirmed my email, I advance to the confirmation page. I never need to send any other proof. Apparently email was sufficent. The email arrived literally seconds after I was confirmed.

I received this yesterday, September 30, 2013, and had it verified that same night.

Attendance at any educational institution k-12 or post secondary school (with a minimum of two years) that gives their students or faculty an .edu email account, can receive verification very quickly within the same day of upon receipt. If an .edu email isn't given out, verification will require a proof of attendance such as a copy of school ID card, report card, transcript, tuition bill or statement, or any other document issued by the educational institution that includes your name, the institution name, and current date or term. They accept digital photographs or scanned documents in either jpeg, gif, bmp, tif, or pdf format.

I opted for the Creative Suite 6 Design and Web Premium as my school currently uses this exact suite in their graphic design labs and instructor recommendation, as well as it being the cheaper alternative for me than Adobe's Creative Cloud. Although the Creative Cloud is cheaper with a student discount of $20 a month, in the long run I would not be able to afford it's rates after graduating if I am not able to find a job immediately after college.

I haven't installed this program as of yet as I am still waiting for my MacBook Air in the mail, it should be here in a couple of days. Until then I'll finish my review later.
*edit*

I received my MacBook Air today, and performed a remote disc install, which took a little under an hour and forty-five minutes to install. I had issues installing Adobe Acrobat X Pro, but it seems to be a common issue, but running the install once again solved the problem for me.
All the programs run as intended and was updated without trouble.

Awesome software package. Large learning curve for beginners. Can do just about anything with this group of applications. Trying to find good instruction is a bit difficult. The basics are taught thru Adobe and various other sources, however, finding sources for further instruction has been a task.
