    I received an email yeasterday from Adobe with an offer for CS5 for $300 for owners of PSE8, which I have and registered 6 months ago.

    I just bought LR3 a month ago for $284 and have been happy with it.
    I have been able to do evrything I thought I needed, but this is a good price.
    I used PSE8, along with NX2 and LR3beta, before getting LR3.

    What do you think.
    I can afford it but I don't know if it will be usefull, and it comes with a steep learning curve.
    But it is almost to good to pass up at $350 off list just to have it.

    Lightroom cannot edit pixels, CS and PSE can.

    PSE is very limited, having only about 40% of the capabilites CS has.

    Plus, once you have CS5 you then qualify for upgrade pricing when newer versions appear. Currently they allow upgrade pricing for 3 levels. So, you could hang onto CS5 until it's time to upgrade to CS8 in about 4.5 years.

    The learning curve is steep because it is such aversatile application. It gets used in ways the programs designers never envisioned.

    OK, Thanks.
    I had considered the future proofing, as it were, for later.

    I had pretty much convinced myself and unless there is a pursuading negative response I will get it tonite or tomorrow.

    BTW, I see you are NAPP.
    Do I get a membership discount with the purchase of CS5 and the other adobe stuff I own? ;)

    Too much?
    Do you pay student prices?

    The rest escapes me, since I don't own it yet.

    Ok, but I gotta buy an origonal first, and the price on Amazon is 649 and 658 on newegg. So 300 is great!

    Eh, yeah. Student prices. Distributors prices. but its not a huge difference in what your about to pay... Do you have any of the previous programs where you can just upgrade?? or no?

    NAPP members, get a 15% discount from Adobe, by accessing Adobe through the member section of PhotoshopUser.com.

    If you are not a NAPP member, but want to be, you can use my referral link to join: http://www.photoshopuser.com/?aid=luhgxq

    Adobe is not NAPP,so there is no NAPP membership discount if you buy Adobe products.

    If you think PSE is great and already do the things you want, then I would not buy it.

    If you are a student or faculty member, the Adobe discounts are significant. If you are not, do you have a non-photographer student friend or member of your household who would be willing to buy for you? CS5 extended is $199.

    I have PSE and LR3 and the discount offer was for PSE owners.
    No previous PhotoShop versions.

    So, I'll get that from Adobe for a legal copy instead of asking someone for their student discount.

    Thanks folks.
