Re: OT: Photoshop CS4 upgrade overpriced

Yes- I was quoting a price JUST for PhotoShop not the entire creative suite...
The problem with Creative Suite is I would only occasionally (rarely)  use In Design- and 
have chosen not to do web design- even for myself...
So- there you have it - I suppose Adobe's reasoning is that if you need all this you are running a design or advertising firm.
There needs to be a lower "Photography Practitioner" price- someone like me who likes to have all those programs
on his or her computer for bragging rights- but can only really use PhotoShop.
I used to collect Mardi Gras doubloons- no I collect filters and various image editing programs.

I think some of the confusion is quoting upgrade prices for Adobe Creative Suite vs just Photoshop.

Hey Folks- maybe I'm not getting something here but I used my old number for CS and purchased an upgrade to CS4 for
either $199 or $250- sorry if my memory is bad on this... 
Now I did buy Academic CS2 as I sometimes teach college- but as you know this academic pricing does not include upgrades and is something like $250.
I tried the CS3 but found it buggy on my Mac so I simply went to CS on my laptop as it booted faster.
Now I use LR 2.0 for almost everything and only play with wacky filters or do facial retouches in Photoshop...
I do like the fact you can export Zoomify files right from CS4....
