To those people who are still using Photoshop version 7, if you’ve been thinking about upgrading a newer version, you should do it now. You only have a few days left.
Adobe’s policy with Photoshop is that you are allowed to take advantage of the upgrade price only if your current software is up to three versions old. So, if you’re still using 7, that means you’re eligible to move to CS3, and with the release of CS4, Adobe has placed a deadline for this upgrade path only until October 15.
Unfortunately, if you want to move from Photoshop 7 to CS4, you’ll have to go through the upgrade twice- once to CS3, and then to CS4, although paying $199 twice is still less than paying $699 for the full version of CS4.
