Just wondering if anyone had a way of getting Photoshop and Illustrator for a Macbook Pro with out breaking my bank account. Sorry if this offend anyone but im on a in college and money is sparse. Thanks
There is freeware version called Gimp which I use on my Mac. It’s ok – worth what you pay for it. I am not that good with image editing software, so I wouldn’t really know just how good or bad it is, but I can do just about anything I need to do on it. Its fairly much like Photoshop, if not quite as slick.
On a related subject, I’ll pass along that there is a straightforward way to move AutoCAD files to Photoshop. You probabably know that AutoCAD doesn’t provide a “save as” or “export” to Photoshop (probably intentionally because they want you to use their own products for rendering). An inexpensive program “Bluebeam” acts as a printer from AutoCAD and produces Photoshop files (you set the resolution). It does so reliably so that you can “print” different layers of line work from your AutoCAD drawing making coloring in Photoshop easier.
Totally straightforward. Once the software shows up you go through a website where you shoot info to adobe proving you’re a student and they send back a serial number for the software. I was up and running within half a day once I got the package.
Hang on to that thought. It’s not so straightforward and simple if you need to swap the software to a different computer. Have this in mind and install it where you think it will be parked the longest-ka
