    Yea my boy wants photo shop and I also. Hell price is high. He looked at GIMP and didnt like. He also look at a couple others and for some reason didnt care for them. I was looking on e-bay and looks like I might be able (if lucky to get it at 1/2 price or maybe better) hard saying. My question is if I would buy one can I install on two computers. Does any one know.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can use photoshop in any system as long as you don't register it... so here's what you do... put photoshop on his, and put it as if not to ever register the product... then when you put it on your system, register it...
    Then whenever you have updates on paletts or anything else, you can copy from yours and place it on his..

    Looks legit, but why are you adverse to using the "method" that Cold Storm suggested?

    Works for my wife and I...;)

    I've never done it to where both are registered... I believe from games it would be the same for software... is that what you are referring to Dr?

    :) Yea got photoshop today and installed on mine and boys computer with no problems. Was getting worried, e-bay booted guy that I bought disk off and e-mailed me I could get out of it. Problem was I already paid guy. Funny thing thou I bought it from a guy in Florida but it came from China. Something fishy there.

    Doesn't the latest versions of Photoshop(CS, CS2, CS3) require activation? Mine did at least, and I could only activate it once on a single computer.

    I installed on his computer first and then stopped at activation page. Then installed on my computer and then registered it. It did not ask me to activate. And no where can I find to activate on mine. So went back to his computer and activated on his. We both have it and using it. I don't know what I'm doing on it, one hell of a learning curve. But I know when I had trial version it kept popping up to activate. Not once has it asked me to activate on my computer.

    I guess knock on wood uh lol

    oh, Photoshop takes some time to getting use to.
    Think of Photoshop as paint on crack. Thats all it is. I've used it through school and I love the thing. I even used the high end Painter, but this is just so much more...
    Good luck and you'll have fun!
