Why would they change the look of the toolbar in Photoshop CS4 for Mac?

Question by OKwithme: Why would they change the look of the toolbar in Photoshop CS4 for Mac?
The Photoshop toolbar for Mac from PS7 to CS3 was shiny and took on the “Aqua” user interface of the Mac. Now, the toolbar is more similar to the Windows version. Why would they make the toolbar look more bland now?

Would it matter what Macbook I get to run the standard edition of CS4?

Question by Justin: Would it matter what Macbook I get to run the standard edition of CS4?
The macbook I am looking at is the macbook pro with a 2.13 ghz processor and 4GB ram (13 inch screen). I am on a budget of nothing more than $ 1200 and with my student discount, it would be below that. I am wondering though would I notice or see an compatibility issues of CS4 running slow? I am just getting the standard edition to have Indesign and Photoshop.

Answer:

Answer by vector assassin
I have an iMac with 4GB ram and run CS4. A macbook would be good as long as you have decent ram, and 4GB is fine. I haven’t seen any issues with it running slow at all.

I want to buy Adobe CS4 Student Edition, but I am not a student. What would I need to do?

Question by Not a Player: I want to buy Adobe CS4 Student Edition, but I am not a student. What would I need to do?
Adobe CS4 came out recently. I want to purchase the program, but can’t afford to shell out $ 1,500.

I have heard that the student edition is around $ 350.00. I am not a student though and understand that if you purchase Student Edition programs, you must provide documentation or proof that you are enrolled. What would I need to do and what are the restrictions of buying Student Edition software if, once again, you are not a student.

Answer:

Answer by amybeader
That would be illegal. You are violating the licensing that Adobe has and if you do this you are committing fraud. Both you and anyone who assisted you would be committing fraud, and could be taken to court for this. It’s a bad idea.

A better idea would be enroll in a couple of local community college courses (even for just one quarter, so you are qualified as at least part time). Once you’ve done that, you will have student id and can go from there. But do not attempt to get this any other way.

What exactly would I be using Fireworks CS4 for?

Question by TimeShifterX: What exactly would I be using Fireworks CS4 for?
I own Adobe Design Premium CS4 and I don’t know what I would be using Fireworks CS4 for. In the Design Premium CS4 you get Photoshop CS4 Extended, InDesign, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Flash, Fireworks and Adobe Acrobat Pro. What can Fireworks do that my other design programs can’t do?

Answer:

Answer by Red Hatorade
It depends on what you are doing. If you are editing photos, then I think PhotoShop is great. I use Fireworks all the time, and actually prefer it over PhotoShop (I don;t do a lot of photo editing). I find it a lot easier to create logos and edit images than in PhotoShop. It all depends on the person, but I would say that for me, Fireworks is way better.

It depends on who your one-to-one session is with. I spoke to someone who works at an Apple store and he openly told me that he uses his iMac to download a ridiculous amount of movies illegally in order to watch them on his 27″ computer.

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

Best answer:

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.
