I kinda want to, because I have cs2 suite working on my duel-core intel mac and it could run kind of slow. Especially illustrator which quits on me everytime I have photoshop running, and also when I try to use the pathfinder tools.
i'm trying the beta...and not loving it much so far the interface is clearly improved and does look a lot nicer...but i can't speak the same about actual "functions"...it may be just me tough...i've been known to be extremely picky sometimes
@Poolpimp - depends how the software is cracked. There's hacking and then there's reverse engineering. No idea what mine is (not that it matters to me as I will never reach the ranks of high end design).
i would need to buy it as my cs2 is not original , plus i have grown to love using cs3 over cs2 , one major reason being how fast it works , it's soo much more less resource hungry on your pc , it really is pure joy to use , plus i really love the new UI , the menu set out etc ... i love having the brushs right there when i want them , with out fucking about with shortcuts etc ...
yes, it's very complete but it's got too many secrets for my taste, i wish adobe would make it a litle bit more "point n'click". you should give it a try tho. maybe go through a lynda tutorial on it. vector design has shitloads of potencial.
Illustrator is ok....the pen tool is harder than on photoshop because of the difference when u use ctrl+click, alt+click and shift+click.....and dropping colors into areas is sometimes a damn challenge
ok...try doing graphics for MTV with your pirated software...whenever you save out, theres hidden watermarks that can only be read with this one program...
this one company that snitches on ppl or companies with pirated software has that program also...if caught...u gotta pay up the money u made off the software, lawyer fees, and other stuff...don't forget, you might get jail time..up to 10 years
So if you wanna keep using pirated software, you better stick to doing stuff for mom & pop business...
even if you open an image created with photoshop (like a flattened jpeg) with a text editing program, you can see the first line tells u what version was used.
I bet there are ways of getting more info...
O, you're in Kuwait, then your o.k (no offense if taken)...Im on the east coast of the United States (don't like it, rather be in the south), the highest risk of doing commercial work on pirated software...
Lol, funny thing is that i make work for an organization here, and i dont think anyone here uses legitimate software.
I dont believe piracy is a crime that should be punished to a very large extent, because after all, not all people can afford to buy corporate programs such as these all the time, especially not a low earning 16 year old dufus like me.
where did you say you were from, kuwait....ok where are the big targets for adobe, u.s., u.k, japan, some countries on the mainland of europe, and probably india (thats where all the support centers are located at, lol)
i don't think kuwait would be a target to watch ppl for software...plus laws are different in each country...but some share simular stuff like copyright infringment
