I am trying to find if my recent ps7 purchase is a fake.

Apr 12, 2013 4:49 AM

Basically I have been told it is an OOBE version but I cant find any reference to OOBE versions of photoshop 7 existing, is there such a thing ?

 

I have no intention of using a fake/copy product and we use several standard full versions already. This version is not quite the same looking and I was unaware that adobe used any form of 'Out Of Box Experience' versions of their software.

 

Before I send it back and report the seller I wanted to double check just in case they do exist ?

 

The most noticable different is it is in a soft dvd style taller case and the serial is not prnted on it but installs automatically.

    Is that what they call it, exactly - "PS7"?

     

    OOBE normally stands for Out Of Box Experience.

    I meant to add:  There's never been any such thing as an "OOBE Edition", though the acronym is used to describe your first experience with Photoshop.

    If it's 7.0 it's 6 major versions out of date.  Are you wanting to buy an ancient version, or are they passing it off as something new?

    Every retail boxed version of Adobe software has a serial number and won't activate without one. If you had a serial Adobe Customer Support could verify it for you; but as you don't it's clearly a hacked copy.

    Understood.  Dave's nailed down the most pertinent point, I think.
