Adobe offering CS2 for free

Yep, you read that correctly. If you’re running Lion or Mountain Lion this this’ll be pretty useless1 but if you’re similar to a lot of designers I know who are still using Snow Leopard, you can download CS2 from Adobe for free. It requires signing in with an Adobe ID and from there you can download any of the CS2 apps as well as Acrobat Pro 8.

  1. You could run CS2 in Windows XP via Parallels or VMware Fusion if you absolutely had to. The power of most modern Intel Macs and the recent versions of these apps would mean CS2 would run perfectly fine.
