^ illegal to sell, but of course not to use for personal use!

I agree about using the blur filter to achieve depth of field - there really is no quick fix, and even blurring the background may look cheap, no matter how well you "cut out" the person in the foreground. There are digital cameras that will give that effect, granted they are tons more expensive than typical digital cameras, but many people will be able to tell when depth of field is simulated and not natural.

Indeed. If you want to use it for purely educational purposes then the student version is the way to go on the legal side of the fence! There are also places that gives you a student-discount on all software, normal version or student. But the normal legal version costs a surreal amount of money (concidering it's a piece of software)

Also, when you want a depth to your images (like in the DKNY-ads on the previous page) you will achieve MUCH better results by doing it manually with a digital reflex-camera, then adjusting the depth of view so that, say the models are two meters from the camera, then everything within one to three meters of the camera is in focus and everything behind is unfocused. It's close to impossible to do this 100 percent realistic in photoshop, and takes alot of time and patience. And just as a sidenote, the camera-adjustments mentioned is easier said than done

Digital single-lens reflexs cameras are getting cheaper and cheaper, and if you are more or less serious about photography you'll need one, only thing is that they tend to weight a ton Not something to put in your purse in other words

Both of you should probably realize that's just not going to happen around here.

And Adobe has gotten pretty darn good at eliminating the ability to get a bootleg version.

The watermark is there for a reason... to protect the image. If you want to learn how to remove a watermark scriptgirl you can find out for yourself on the internet or ask someplace else... because that information isn't going to posted here.

Thank You.
