got it on CD. From a friendly friend, no doubt. And who knows how much that friend paid lol. I was on msn with this guy one time and he randomly says, "hey, u got a serial number for PS?" all i say is "... are you serious?" and he shuts up and knows what i think of cracking PS.
[back to topic] I follow Photoshop tuts in GIMP, it's easy enough once you understand the equivalent actions and what you can do to get past some of the PS gumbo.
