    Do you want a legal yet free version of Photoshop? then do this...

    - Go to Adobe's website and type Photoshop CS2 on the SearchBox and open CS2 Downloads link
    - Read the note and push I Agree button
    - Continue to register if you haven't already (it's for free)
    - Scroll down to see Photoshop CS2 with the download links on the right (Mac / Win)
    - When prompted to introduce a serial number, use the one on the right of the download link

    If it looks like trickery to you, this is the reason why it's for free:
    "Adobe has disabled the activation server for CS2 products, including Acrobat 7, because of a technical issue." -Adobe's note.

    What it means is that it'll no longer check if your Serial Numer is a purchased one and not a trial version. And I know what you are thinking:
    "CS2 is very old! o_O"
    but it's also very free. And Photoshop 8 (CS1) is still good enough for wha most of us do, I figure a more recent version would be even better.

    Hope you guys find it useful.

    I know, but I never found anything like this in MDL and it might be helpful for some people (like me) that never knew of this news before. I was actually trying to find CS6 in MDL but I never found it... I figure it'll be better to find this instead of nothing.
