    Photoshop - education vs full version

    Howdy all.
    I'm looking at upgrading from photoshop CS to either CS3 or lightroom 2. Just wondering what the main differences are between the 'educational' versions vs. the 'full versions'???

    Is it purely licencing? i.e. I shouldn't use it for commercial purposes? or are there any other differences to the programs?

    Also, I'm looking at CS3 as I can get it a fair bit cheaper then CS4, I presume there's not a whole lot of difference between the two? Anyone want to convince me otherwise? or push me towards lightroom 2? I think I can get CS3 a fair bit cheaper than lightroom 2 as well...

    ta!

    Lightroom 3 is out

    There's no education version, so, it's just licencing

    There's been a forest killed to document differences between CS3 and CS4, but, whether you need the improvements really just depends on your useage.

    LR is not a replacement of CS, they are complimentary as well as mutually exclusive

    Gavin, the educational version is a fully functioning version of the software, can only be loaded on 1 computer, as against 2 for the retail version and cannot be used for any commercial purposes.

    You will have to have a student ID or teacher registration to get a serial number though, as there is not one included in the box, only instructions on how to get a number

    I have been tolled the difference between the two (CS3 & CS4) is CS4 is more for Graphic Design. CS5 is the way to go. From one that has CS4.

    Gavin sorry but you can load CS4 2 times on two different computers (on the educational version).
