CS2 has never been available for free download.
Adobe only made it available for existing CS2 license holders to download.
I read on Gizmodo that it was available for free and on the Adobe page you could find serial numbers to use. Thanks for the reply.
Then the article you read apparently conveys a falsehood.
In any case Photoshop CS2 did not even feature Smart Filters, so if you want to become an image editing professional it should in my opinion not be considered a serious option anymore.

Don't believe everything you read on the internet. You've now asked in an Adobe forum and been advised that it's not free.
I read somewhere too that CS2 is free!
And you, too, have been deceived.
Maybe it was not an outright lie, but a misunderstanding, still the claim is incorrect.
