Hello friends! I have a question about Adobe Photoshop CS2. I want to know if it's free to download or not? PS: I never bought an Adobe program I want to use this Photoshop CS2, but I need to know if it's legal or not.

Hi jandirb,Well, Photoshop CS2 is not a free software. Downloading Photoshop from the link which you are talking about is only for those people who originally bought this software. Since the activation server is not available for Photoshop CS2, that link can be used as a alternative way to download/install software.Regards,Mohit

No versions of Photoshop are free.

Be careful, so-called free and reduced price versions, from dubious sources, will probably contain malware.

It is only legal for customers who bought Ps CS2 once. Adobe shut down the activation servers for CS2.

Many thanks Mohit Goyal! What you said really confers on what I thought. If I download the software and install, then there is no error, or something illegal?

If you do not have a license, it is stealing. Many web sites lie about this to trick you into doing something wrong without realising. They do not care if you get into legal troubles.
