So my Dad is currently enrolled at a community college and is eligible for the student and teacher discounts on software. I was comparing photo-editing software and saw the crazy prices on photoshop CS6 (like $950) which is not even close to what I was looking to spend. Could I get him to purchase the student and teacher version which only costs $230, and just give it to me, and I would install it on my computer? How do those student and teacher editions work? Also, once he has proven eligibility and it is installed, is it unlimited use from then on? As in no expiration of the student license? How about being able to transfer it to a new computer eventually? Last, is $230 (Newegg and Amazon) the best price I will find for this version? Do they ever have deals on it? Thanks in advance for any answers.
Lightroom is really a better photo editing program for photos. It does 97% of what 99% of photographers need to do. For the rest gimp works. The workflow is much better in LR as well. Lightroom is much cheaper as well. Go download the demo from adobe and give it a shot.
As far as photoshop pretty much all your questions can be answered by reading the documentation on the adobe website about student and teacher versions.
Yeah, but $700 for photoshop vs. $0.00 for gimp makes a compelling argument for using the Google to figure things out ;-)
student version for $700? I thought this was SD - I would suggest an older version of photoshop if you can't find a deal.. as they don't add that many new features, but being able to put "photoshop" on your resume as opposed to "gimp" is worth $100
