Free copy of Photoshop https://www.westephotography.com/blog/2015/3/free-copy-of-photoshop Found this online: Free version of Photoshop CS2. Windows or MAC. If you don't have Photoshop because of the price, you might want to get this. It's an old legacy version, but it's still Photoshop.  It's the first version I ever owned.  It would be worth the download.
