    I know but I went to the Uni CO-OP to have a look at the price... $799
    academic version :-(
    I was kind of hoping to get someone to sell me their copy that they
    don't use much.
    My 10D came with Photoshop Elements version 2.0 which is brilliant.. but
    does not batch, have actions or produce proof sheets (contact sheets)

    Actually .. I have a bit more of a play with elements tonight... it does
    do contact sheets.

    And damn it is a great program... pity about the lack of actions and
    batching.

    By the way... does anyone know if the "interface" of photoshop 7.0 is
    similar to Elements. I really like elements tab menu.

    My, I am very impressed to see people are talking to get a legal copy
    rather than just copy one from somewhere...

    In my hometown, if I need such a software I may ask somebody who has
    time to go to the ilegal software market to buy one for me, for au$1
    each perhaps...

    Thank god, not everywhere is like that.

    Software giants such as Ms$oft, adobe, etc, surely do a great job for
    us.

    I think that perhaps you're being a little optimistic. I imagine that
    those people who would pirate software would be smart enough not to
    discuss it in a public newsgroup.
    Indeed. Their reign is surely a benevolent one. ;)

    Now where talkin'

    Who are you and where (web/ph)... actually .. I think the $799 was a
    package with some other adobe software... but I am really after only
    Photoshop.
    I want to turn pics to B&W and sharpen them ALL at once (don't bother
    Miro... I know this is bad IYO), not one at a time.

    You certainly cannot use it to make money or any commercial use, teacher or
    not.

  14. You can do that with 2109438203948 other programs, and at 1/2 the
    price.

    Thumbs+ does it for shit loads cheaper

    Irfanview will convert to greyscale and sharpen in batch mode, and it's
    free. (http://www.irfanview.com) It also will allow you to resize, rotate
    and whole bunch of other funky things.

    Even though converting to greyscale is ghastly way to do a B/W conversion,
    if it's what you want then give it a whirl, can't go wrong for the price.

    Paint Shop Pro may be the cheapest answer. Why not download that and try
    for free.

    Gives most things that PS7 does.

    I know this isn't what you asked, but have you thought about Paint
    Shop Pro? I've had a play with a few eval/beta versions over the last
    few months, and it's quite nice (especially if you compare prices with
    PS!). If you can get an academic price on it (don't know if you can),
    it'll be a bargain.

    Only problem is it's not the standard, and apparently quite a few PS
    actions don't work with it... Either way, I think I'll be using it
    rather than shelling out for PS.

    Cheers,

    Danny

    I haven't tried it but will have to before I commit to PS 7.0

    I really like Elements 2.0... the more I use the more I like it. I just
    miss a few of the features of PS... but maybe I can make do with
    Elements and PS 5.0 (that I already have) for those features.

    If you already have PS5 you can opt for an upgrade.
    If not, you can buy the student version at Hardly Normals by producing your
    ID. It applies to faculty members too.

    There's a 30 day trial of PaintShop Pro on the cover of the latest PC
    Authority... If that's any help.
