You're in big trouble if you don't already have the photoshop program with you. But don't worry! We're here for you! I will list some sources to download such as Photoshop Elements and Photoshop CS. FOR FREE.
Make sure you download PowerISO and WinRAR. These files are only opened with that program (or some others).
Many files are in .ISO or .DAA format. So while downloading other files, also download this:
Power ISO - Full version.
WinRAR - Trial version.
Photoshop Elements 6.0 - preferred for beginner users
Photoshop CS3 - preferred for advanced users
Walkthrough to correctly install Photoshop CS3
Tools you need:
*ANY .iso extractor (PowerISO or WinRar are good examples)
*PhotoshopCS3.iso (You can download from this site)
*Compatible Computer (I ensure XP works, some people have said Vista works as well. Let me know if Mac works too.)
For Windows (click spoiler)(Thanks to (And Props to):geniusxtra
1. Make sure you have all of these downloaded. They can be downloaded from this site. Or, you can simply Google it.
2. After you download PhotoshopCS3.iso, right-click it, properties, then change the program that it Opens with to .iso opener then press OK. (PowerISO or WinRar, for example)
3. Open up your PhotoshopCS3.iso. And then double-click ADBEPHSPCS3_WWE.exe, and some programs will prompt you to extract files to temporary folder or run the file directly. extract files to temporary folder, then wait for it to extract.
4. Now we're at the setup process.It'll ask for redirect of where it will extract. Set it to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS3\Adobe CS3. Then press Ok then Next. It'll install.
5. Open up to the directory you have installed Adobe CS3. There should be a program called setup. Click it. Then it'll intialize Photoshop CS3.
6. Now the Photoshop CS3 Installer will open. Make sure you have all the programs like firefox and other Adobe programs turned off. Just keep pressing Next.
*And now you have installed Adobe Photoshop CS3...Trial Version. Alright you want the full version.*
7. Open up your PhotoshopCS3.iso again. It should have a program called Photoshop.exe. Drag it out to the desktop.
8. Close your PhotoshopCS3.iso. You don't need it anymore. But save it, don't delete it. Open up the directory where your Photoshop CS3 is installed. It should have alot of files and folders. Locate Photoshop.exe from the folder.
9. This is the important part. You must RIGHT-DRAG the Photoshop.exe from the DESKTOP to the folder in Adobe Photoshop CS3. Then press Copy Here, and it'll ask if you wish to replace. Say Yes. After that, click Photoshop.exe in the folder.
*There we go! We have Photoshop CS3 in full version! Enjoy~*
Don't know how to use Megaupload?
"This application failed to start because AdobeLinguistic.dll was not found. Re-installing this application may fix this problem."
You have to run the setup. Please refer to #5.
Do I have to have the Photoshop Serial Number?
NO you do NOT! Just follow the walkthrough and you won't need it.
"The licensing subsystem has failed catastrophically. You must reinstall or call customer support."
You tried to run Photoshop.exe without installing the whole thing. Follow the complete walkthrough.
Does this have any viruses? My computer is new and I can't afford to have any!
Nope. This copy is perfectly legal and it does not have any viruses. I checked it without my antiviruses (Norton, Kaspersky, etc.) to make sure there is none. If your antivirus shows any, it's a false alarm. Don't worry about it.
"A problem occurred while extracting files. Check available space on your computer and the write privileges on the destination folder."
Sometimes, your service pack doesn't allow you to save wherever you want. In that case, it's fine to just save it on the desktop.
Troubleshoot more to be uploaded~

Towards members and moderators of CR: Unfortunately I cannot trace the source of this file, and I assume it is not legal. The Windows version above is completely legal, hosted by me, however I believe this one is not. I am not responsible for any illegal downloading that you acquire. Towards the moderators, if hosting illegal link is well, illegal, please PM me and I shall remove it. Thanks.
Im just a member who wants to help those in need, so please dont think this is an insult or something. Okay. This is a way you can download it onto a mac. Since im a mac user, i love macs, and i always dreamed of having a photoshop to make aviis and stuff. This stuff is totally free, and it works since im using it. Im a total noob but i hope this helps.
