If you want free trials, and you just need something that will work for a short while (30 days a pop), and your instructor doesn't have anything specific required for the course, then you might be able to work your way up the Creative Suite trials... YOu can start with CS3 and work your way up to CS6, basically 5 trials at 30 days each.
You can download the trial versions of the software thru the pages linked below.
Be sure to follow the steps outlined in the Note: Very Important Instructions section on the download pages at this site and have cookies enabled in your browser or else the download will not work properly.
Ned - Thanks, but when I clicked on your link and saw the instructions, there were so many file option that I had no idea which to pick just to get which ever “file” is simply the CS3 (to start) file.
I downloaded first CS3 and then CS%. My mac wouldn’t open them - ‘not recognized by and recognized site" - something like that.
I trashed them both.
