Free Photoshop CS2

Yes, free! In an interesting move, Adobe is allowing no-cost downloads of its ten-year-old Creative Suite 2 (CS2) products, including Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. The download files and serial numbers are offered online.

What’s the catch? Well, the software is ten years old. And it only works on outdated operating systems — Mac 10.2 and 10.3 (on PowerPC), and Windows 2000 and XP. So current systems may experience problems. And you need to register with Adobe, but that is free.

Here is the link:
