Followup to my post yesterday on Adobe CS3 upgrade.

I just purchased upgrades to CS2.3 Premium from Photoshop 7 (no path from the original Design Collection that I have), one for Mac and one for PC from CDW - $765.45 each.

Also got Quark 7 upgrade for $198.60.

I'll let you know if my plan for a free upgrade to CS3 from Adobe works out. If so, I will have saved a nice piece of change going form PS7 to CS3 Design Premium.

If anyone else can confirm the continuation of Adobe's free upgrade policy I'd appreciate it.

TIA

JoeM,

I can't give any answer to your question, but I'm interested in knowing whether the free upgrade works for you as well. I have Photoshop 7 also, and would love to make the jump to the cs3 suite, especially if one can get the free upgrade.

keep us posted

You mention the Quark 7 upgrade... what version are you upgrading from?

Just be aware (like a friendly warning from one Quark user to another) that version 7 is, according to many, and even me, a very odd upgrade. It seems to have very high system requirements, and nothing really compelling to upgrade for. And, it doesn't seem to be very responsive on machines slower than G5s.

There's a ton of info on the 'net about it, and you're probably going to see that version 7 isn't a problem for some. But, for me, it is painful to work with. I'm sticking with version 6 for now.

Actually, Quark 7 is dog ass slow on any slower than an intel mac

running it on G5s and G4s -- slow, slow, slow

stick with 6.5 if you dont use Quark a lot

Does it still truncate support file names when you collect for output? How 1980s of them. Sheesh.

clay,

According to the adobe rep yesterday, you would need to purchase CS2.3 between 3/18 and 3/31 to qualify. Then you would have to prove date of purchase for the free update.

I would think you would be eligible if until CS3 was shipping and maybe a few weeks thereafter but I have no info that confirms that.

I'm upgrading from 5. I wish I had gotten 6 but never got it. I'm getting an Intel Mac soon (waiting for final approval now) so I should be OK.
