I downloaded 7.0 and the trial ended before windows launched. I assumed it was registering the trial and when I re-installed Windows a few days later with a retail version of 7.0, it would have remained at least partially active.
Personally, the only software I still know of that is already free or at least has a free trial is (Notepad) and (Windows Messenger). I suppose we can say that it's about the same as distribution for software. It's all about how they market the software and word gets out. Just my two cents.
I just installed trial version of photoshop cs7/e, and it literally takes days to load up, then it says not enough HDD space, and asks for more, and at the same time after it loads up, I see it popping up, AGAIN, saying my space is not enough, and "of course" it's not enough..hmmm.
Downloading this now for free since I know this is not something that Adobe wants to give because of the amount of downloads. I really did not find the full download free "ad" sales pitch until after the trial was over. Don't know if this is just a way for them to make another buck off their product.
I had this problem as well buying the full version from the site, and spent the hour waiting for the thing to load. Yes, it is a trial version, but it should have referenced that. I thought I got the same version that would have been on the site, which was CS7, but it turned out to be CS6. I had to visit the site and get CS7 -- a waste of time. But it did work -- I was given the free version.
Adobe Photoshop is a widely used raster graphics editor developed by Adobe Inc. It is available for both Windows and Mac. A free trial of Photoshop is offered by Adobe, but the full version must be purchased in order to continue using it.
If you intend to save a photo and graphics from your website to this application, you have to download it from this server. So forget about free trials, no alternative there. Adobe has made Photoshop a lot easier to use and you are not guilty of piracy for using it. d2c66b5586
