    Does anyone know of any cheap deals on this at the moment? I know about the “student/educational discount sites but it is bundled with many other products and is still £180 that I just do not have right now.

    Is it possible to just buy the Photoshop part on it’s own?

    Elements depending on what you want of GIMP.

    Regular price for photoshop cs6 on its own is around £660. The student and teacher version is around £190. I doubt that new and legal version of the software can be bought much cheaper than that, which leaves either:

    A 2nd hand version of possibly an older version.

    If you only need it for a short time then use the free months trial version of CS6.

    An illegal download version from somewhere for free. I doubt it would be hard to find.

    A copy of the CS2 version which can be downloaded for free from Adobe (although legally you shouldn’t be using it unless you’ve previously purchased CS2)

    I want/need the full version of Photoshop, what i don’t need is all the bundled stuff that comes with it.

    Photoshop on its own is £190 (educational) or £660 (commercial).

    The full suite is over £2,600 (commercial)

    the subscription is fairly pricey… if your brassed why not just take a trial out for 30 days?

    If you “NEED” it you can afford it.

    Why do you desperately need photoshop CS6? There might be an alternative solution.

    cheaper option buy CS2 or some older version? I doubt very much it’d miss the functionality that you need?

    If you’re on Mac then Pixelmator is a significantly cheaper layer based option. It is lacking in more advanced features though.

    Or Photoshop Elements?

    Does it have to be CS6? You can get Photoshop 7 for about 50 squids if you shop around. Bet you couldn’t tell the difference.

    When I say “need”………. I’ve been really impressed with two of the new tools in CS6, the Blur Panel and the HDR panel that I have used in the trial version. The problem is that I can’t afford to purchase it right now, so wondered if it was available at a bargain price anywhere.

    so wondered if it was available at a bargain price anywhere.

    No, Adobe control prices fairly tightly.

    Unless you can find a version 2nd hand, the best i would expect you to find would be up to 10% saving on the above prices. Anything more than that and I would start to think that it was dodgy.

    If you want it that bad rent it from adobe or find another HDR application, there’s loads out there that you can demo.

    Google plugins for hdr and adding blur. They may well be free and plugins are compatible with lots of versions of photoshop

    The HDR Panel and Blur panel are nothing that couldn’t already be created in photoshop, they just packed them for efficiency.

    Play around with adjustment layers etc. and experiment with filters/effects and you’ll soon discover how to do it. I’m pretty sure they be a tutorial or two out there.

    It’ll make you better in PS too. 🙂

    Photomatix is better than Photoshop for HDR
