Photoshop CS4: Classic or dud?

ASCII NED (libcrypt), Saturday, 29 November 2008 21:49 (eleven years ago) link

The new display technology throws me off a bit. Images at different magnifications can look very different.

Getting desperate for a Christmas present for my Dad, who's a (very) serious amateur photographer and uses Photoshop Elements. I can just about afford the Photoshop CS4 if me and my brother both chip in and if I get the student version (I have a part-time student card so I guess that would work).

Is there any other giftable software a photoenthusiast would like, or is Photoshop basically it? He uses a PC.

He would never consider using cracks, hence worth us considering this present.

I'd recommend Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (currently on v2.1) - gets rid of a lot of stuff a photographer wouldn't use, simplifies the workflow and provide a great tagging/cataloguing system. I couldn't cope without it now. A lot cheaper than PS-CS4 but quite a bit more expensive than PSE7.

Does his PC have plenty of RAM? Adobe recommend 1GB for Lightroom but I think 2GB is needed.

I've never used Lightroom and don't know the extent of it's processing tools, but it sounds like a great idea. Alternately, maybe you could find someone selling CS3. Very few people are upgrading to CS4 at this point.

lightroom is a good idea if he's going to use it for his photography. not sure about the cost difference tho.

If he's a Mac user, then Aperture is a very good, photographer-centric image editing app. Lightroom can be considered Adobe's response to Aperture.

I'm finding it weird that there are a number of people on here & the ilphotography threads say they can't afford Photoshop and Lightroom, but have been on other threads talking about acquiring films/tv and music via certain internet wonders of sharing.

I've just been reading that recent editions of photoshop need to have a certain resolution of screen before they will allow you to save properly.
1024x600 which it doesn't look like I can access on my computer.
I'm just wondering if it has always been like that or if it might be possible to get hold of an older version and use it successfully.
Without the ability to save things the application's usefulness is sorely limited.

Is this a problem that other image editing software suffer from. Or am I better trying something like Gimp?

Stevolende, Wednesday, 31 October 2012 18:57 (seven years ago) link

AT the moment I just get no dialogue box coming up when i press save as & the only possible way of saving is to turn off the image at the x at which point it asks if you want to save the image that's being thrown away but then you can't come back and save differing versions of the same project.
Kind of sux really.

Stevolende, Wednesday, 31 October 2012 18:59 (seven years ago) link

ive used ps since the pre-creative suite days up to cs5 don't know what you're referring to about required resolution. no dialogue box for 'save as' sounds like your photoshop install is corrupted

I mean, I'm thrilled that they've finally caught up to the rest of the world (and the rest of their apps) and made CMD+Z the all-around go-backward function, but damn. It's going to take me another five years to quit hitting OPTION+CMD+Z to go backward more than a step.

Same with swapping shift-resize!

sktsh, Friday, 2 November 2018 17:38 (one year ago) link

Good Lord, that too.

Why even still have the little lock icon up there if it doesn't do anything?

Though, yes, the new way is better.

oh man that made me so angry and perplexed the first time I fired up the new version

i have a feeling adobe broke photoshop elements on my mac but blames apple and offers a "license fixing tool" that doesn't work in order for me to agree to language that it is not responsible for breaking photoshop elements on my mac in any way. cool trump-y move.

Fortunately, Illustrator doesn't give a shit – which is so true for most of what I try to use illustrator for.
