Photoshop 7 (Mac) - $259

RE: P7 for Mac (academic version)

Based on Doug's reply below, I'm pulling this.

Though the seller is affiliated with a university and purchased it legally, but never installed it (he just got a PC + Win PS7), I did not realize he would be in violation by selling it.

Just an FYI:

The academic version of Photoshop should include all bound manuals. In addition, purchase from anyone but an Adobe Academic Reseller is considered piracy, as is resale to anyone that cannot provide valid student ID.

The academic versions and retail versions of Photoshop are identical except for the package design and the splash screens, and that the academic version licenses are not transferable.

Academic versions are fully upgradeable, and the first time you upgrade you are released from the restrictions of the academic version license.

Details on who may sell and purchase academic versions are available here: http://www.adobe.com/education/purchasing/qualify.html

Hmmmm - I was told that you couldn't "upgrade" an academic version to a full version. I'll have to check into that again.

Margaret:

Functionally an academic version is normally equivalent to a non-academic version except package labeling, splash screen, special pricing and licencing and (now I know, too) reselling restrictions. An academic version can be upgraded just like an non-academic versions can.

Depending on company an academic version may not come with the same manuals and/or reference materials, and/or extra "goodie files," etc. as a standard version. (I was in error with my initial post: PS academic comes with hard copy materials; Corel Draw-10 academic, for example, did not.)

The information I was given was that if you only purchase the upgrade, you must have an existing previous full version on your computer. They said that the serial number for an academic version did not qualify and the upgrade wouldn't install.

All I can tell you is PS4 academic upgraded spendidly to PS7.

Here's an FAQ post at Adobe.com. There are others verifying that one may upgrade as well:

=================

Differences between Educational and Retail versions
LenHewitt - 01:19am Feb 19, 2001 Pacific


Question:

What are the Differences between the Educational and Retail Versions
of Photoshop?

Answer:

1). There is NO limitation on use of the Educational Version, only on
aquisition of it in that you must meet the educational requirements to
qualify for purchase.

2. There is NO functional difference between the Educational and
Commercial versions,

3), The Educational version will always show the Academic splash
screen even if you later use it to upgrade to a full Commercial
version.

4). Educational versions of Adobe software do not always ship with the
'free goodies' such as fonts and clip-art that the full commercial
versions include.

Academic PS5 upgraded to 6 with no problems. The upgrade works with a regular or academic version.

Margaret:

Looks like part of the advice you got was correct. To apply an upgrade one must have the base product installed (standard or academic version).

The part about academic version not qualifying is not accurate.

I hope you didn't get this 50%-50% advice from someone at Adobe. Did you?

Thank you for the information - that is good to know. I guess the guy at MacWarehouse was just trying to sell me the full version.

I've been putting off upgrading to 7 because of the price. I might consider it now.
