A Q: Is FW as powerful as PS for web design??

I don’t have PS, but i’ve bought FW from ebay. You can get good prices there(if you are outside US).. Just buy from trusted retailers with many reviews and a good selling status/history.

Or you can buy it through Adobe official page. Here is the link: http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/buying-guide.html

Adobe doesn’t give online purchase option on certain countries, surprisingly even in India where it has much potential. So the options are either retailers if available within country or through ebay etc.

ShyDesign, When you purchase from countries outside yours, verify that license covers your location – before payment! :D

Buy from Adobe, it’s surprisingly easy to buy fake version or version with some license problems from sites like eBay. It happened to me with CS2, I’ve bought used boxed version and everything looked fine except serial number was printed in wrong place and couple other small differences from the original box (I’ve found out about it later). But it was pirated version, it couldn’t be activated and none of shortcut worked, and you couldn’t change any options. Lots of stress but I’ve returned it and got my money back. I don’t know if they do it with cs6 but better safe than sorry

That’s because you’ve bought an used version. There are retailers who offer original unsealed packages. The price is the same as on the Adobe site, and it’s 100% real!

The difference is this: You are in US, product X costs $100 for you! I’m in Europe, where the same product costs $200 for me! So it’s cheaper for me to buy from ebay at the US price..


Thanks, Is FW as powerful as Ps for web design or not??

This is a matter of opinion.. I think it’s way better than PS for web design..
