To tell you the truth, to get a legal copy of Photoshop is going to cost you more than 100.00 anywhere you go, Nathan. What I choose to do is get Photoshop 7 on Ebay, then if I wish, I can upgrade to Photoshop CS and so forth if I choose to in the future. Upgrading this way is the cheapest way to get the latest software.
However, if you are going to purchase from Ebay, please be very careful!
There are a ton of people on there trying to sell illegal copies of Adobe software. If you purchase such a product, not only will the copy be illegal, but you will not be able to register or upgrade your CD.
What I did was look for a "home-taken" photo when searching ebay- a photo that was obviously an actual picture of the unopened box in the home of the person selling, not a picture that had been "copy-pasted" from the Adobe website.
Remember, too, you get what you pay for. If you really want the software, you simply have to choke down the price unfortunatly.
If you have anymore questions, don't hesitate to ask- I hope this helps!
