Help with Adobe CS2 Suite

HI I purchased the Adobe CS2 Suite a few years ago for my son (via an online student software provider). He has used the program for the past few years, until this week when he opened the program and recieved the following message.

(Your Adobe Photoshop user name, organisation or serial number is missing or invalid. This application cannot continue and must now exit)

I still have the reciept and have contacted the software provider but they were unable to assist me. As a single mother of four kids, I cannot afford to pay for the program again and now my triplet girls (15 years old) need to use it for their school assignments.

I would be very grateful if you could offer any advice that may help me to fix this problem.

Many thanks and kindest regards

Sharon

How to use anuscript manager for photoshop cs2


Adobe InDesign CS2 is a desktop publishing program created by Adobe.
As a predecessor to Adobe and Aldus' PageMaker, InDesign is a leading solution for creating high quality print media like that seen in brochures, magazines and professionally created documents.

While not the most current version, InDesign CS2 managed to get above average reviews that still make it a viable choice for those interested in desktop publishing.
History


In the mid 1980's a company known as Aldus literally revolutionized the way printed media was created.
Before Aldus PageMaker, big machines and printing presses were used.

This new software made the process much easier and gave developers much more creative freedom.

In 1995 Adobe purchased Aldus and changed the software's name to Adobe PageMaker.
In 2001 Adobe stopped the creation and support of PageMaker and replaced it with a totally original desktop publishing program, InDesign.

Pros

Despite a few minor issues, Adobe InDesign CS2 integrates well with their other programs.
This means that you'll be able to use other popular Adobe products such as Photoshop to help create your desktop media.

According to a MacWorld.com review, many new features and menus have been copied from competitor QuarkXPress, making InDesign much more accessible to users of its largest rival.

Another new, well-received feature is Snippets.
Snippets allow you to copy specific parts of a document or image and save it as its own file.

This makes reusing the image, effect or text much easier than before.

Cons

While InDesign CS2 offers new text capabilities, they're features that have been included in Microsoft Word for years such as anchored frames, auto correction and bullet point lists.

Some features of Photoshop, such as blending modes, are incompatible with InDesign, though compatibility is touted as a key feature in InDesign CS2.

Another compatibility disadvantage is that you can only export content to the Web using Adobe GoLive CS2 so those who use other programs such as Macromedia Dreamweaver must either purchase GoLive or go without this feature
.
Tutorials

Learning new software can be difficult.
Especially such advanced software that has as many features as Adobe InDesign CS2.

On their official website, Adobe offers many tutorials and "how to" guides for their products.
To make locating CS2 specific information even easier, enter "CS2" into the search bar at Adobe's tutorial page.

http://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/topics.html

The information provided, along with the in-program tutorials in InDesign CS2 will be enough to get you familiar with and using InDesign CS2 quickly.

Purchasing

Since InDesign CS2 is an older program no longer supported by Adobe, you cannot purchase it directly from their website.

Finding the software may be a bit tricky, which is why you may want to consider a more recent version of InDesign.

If you don't want to pay the hefty price tag associated with the most current version you'll be much more likely to find the last version.

Many websites offer the next to current version, though prices vary from $99 to over $600.

Unable to find activation number for Photoshop CS2


I can offer you my experience with activation of Adobe CS3 - Student Edition purchased in Australia in March 2008. Perhaps it will help.

The product included a document marked with a 'coupon code' and instructions to obtain the serial number (activation number) by forwarding evidence of eligibility for the student edition by fax or email to Adobe. (A similar 'proof of purchase' may apply for standard editions).

However, both the fax number and email address pre-printed in the documentation were obsolete. I was ultimately able to obtain the activation code via email from Adobe but only after some investigation to obtain the correct email address. In the South Pacific region this address is (or at least was, in 2008): pacificservice@adobesupport.com .

Perhaps they can direct you to the correct email address for your region.

Adobe indesign cs2 stopped working


Try first Uninstalling the program from control panel and reinstalling the Adobe suite after restarting the computer.

If it did not work, try doing a system restore to some times ago, before you had the problem , then reinstall CS2

If you still have problems, it may be an operative system problem.

Pshop cs2


You can download a trial version of Adobe products - including Photoshop - straight from the Adobe website. You can try most products for 30 days without any cost; if you desire to continue using the product after 30 days you will have to purchase a license. If you are a student, you can obtain a significant discount on Photoshop by purchasing from an academic software reseller like Academic Superstore.

The URL for Adobe trial downloads is http://www.adobe.com/downloads/
The URL for Academic Superstore is http://www.academicsuperstore.com/
