Question by Josh T: when loading adobe premiere cs4 on my computer, do I load it on the HDD with the OS or the dedicated drive?
I bought an internal, 320 7200rpm drive for the HDV video editing on premiere cs4.

Do I load the program (CS4) on to the drive with the OS or the one thats supposed to be dedicated for video editing?

You load the program on the drive with the operating system and use another drive to store the video and audio that will be edited.

How do I edit text in Photoshop CS4 that has already been created?

Question by Joseph: How do I edit text in Photoshop CS4 that has already been created?
I am working on a project and I created a piece of text in Photoshop CS4. For some strange reason, I am no longer able to change the contents of this text block (like add an additional sentence inside of it for example). How can I edit it?

Best answer:

Answer by Jen
You might have rasterized it on accident. What that means is it’s no longer a piece of “text”… it’s now an image.

You might have to make a new text…

How would i take a bunch of photoshop brush files and turn it into a single photoshop brush file?

Question by chiefcooliodude123: How would i take a bunch of photoshop brush files and turn it into a single photoshop brush file?
I have photoshop elements 8 so i can only open 1 brush file at a time. i have a bunch of brushes but i dont have to constantly load them seperatly

Answer by Mujer Alta
Open Preset Manager (Edit>Preset Manager). Preset Type is “Brushes”. Click on the Load button to load more brush sets to work with into the Preset Manager. You can control-click the brushes you use most often then use Save Set to group them all together and give the new set a name.

You shouldn’t group every brush you have into one gigantic brush set because when you open Elements they’ll all be loaded into memory and the program may crash. It’s better to group your brushes into smaller sets to work with.

Question by chrisbouch2002: How can I re-launch adobe CS4 after they shut it off on my computer for a false code?
So I bought a copy of CS4 online and it turns out to be illegal–as I went to download the updates, adobe shut it off. I now have a legal copy, but adobe still says it’s invalid. Any idea how/what I can do here? Do I have to call adobe to get them to re-recognize my computer?

How can you tell what version of Adobe Photoshop CS4 being sold?

Question by Anthony: How can you tell what version of Adobe Photoshop CS4 being sold?
I am trying to buy Adobe Photoshop CS4 for Windows. The boxes all seem very similar, how can you tell if it is a Full or Upgrade version or Student version? Will it state it clearly on the box and where on the box? I appreciate answers from anybody that truly knows, not just guesses. Thanks in advance.

Best answer:

Answer by amybeader
If you order from a legit site (Adobe.com or any authorized reseller) it will state it in the site info. If you go to a store and buy it, it will be stated on the box. Always make sure to just read all the labels and print info. It WILL definitely identify Windows or Mac version and Full or Upgrade.

How can I disable OpenGL in Photoshop CS4 without actually opening the application?

Question by zomfg.hax0rz: How can I disable OpenGL in Photoshop CS4 without actually opening the application?
I’m running (or trying to run) Photoshop CS4 on a 17 inch MBP, but it crashes immediately after opening it. I read that having OpenGL graphics enabled can cause this problem, but I can’t turn them off unless I can get the program to stay open for more than half a second. Is there any way to fix this problem?

Best answer:

Answer by P&G
Try holding ctrl + alt + del as you start Photoshop. This should reset your Prefs to defaults and may allow you to open the program.

what is the difference between dreamweaver cs4 and the student edition?

Question by Alright Blad: what is the difference between dreamweaver cs4 and the student edition?
what is the difference between dreamweaver cs4 and the student edition? are there any limitations to what it can do- essentially i want to create websites and put them on the internet. With this can I? because some things don’t allow you to go that far. Would a sixth form student in UK qualify as a student?

Best answer:

Answer by ELfaGeek
The Student version is for “Non-commercial” use only. It’s a learning tool! That means you can’t charge users for designing websites. If that’s what you want to do, you have to BUY the full version.

And yes, if you attend school you qualify for a student version.

For more info, go to the Adobe website.
