Using Free Photoshop CS2, Newer Versions Free?
1

For the past 5 years or so (I lose count, it's been awhile) I've been using the legitimately free version of Photoshop CS2 ever since a poster told me a kazillion years ago, during a time I was using an even older version than that (CS original maybe?), that CS2 was legitimately free from Adobe's site anyway.

I haven't kept up. Has Adobe made any other versions free since then? If not, oh well, I've basically done OK with Photoshop CS2 because most of the "heavy lifting" I do is RAW processing--either in Lightroom (I have 5.7 currently) or Nikon's free Capture NX-D software (ever since I replaced my submerged Sony A6000 with a Nikon D3300 last month). All I do in Photoshop is some (but typically not all) of the following: cloning or the "healing brush" for trash in the photo (or moles on a face etc), brightness-contrast, levels, a Velvia "actions" for landscapes, and maybe unsharp mask (once in a blue moon I may work with layers just a tad). Heck Photoshop Elements would probably be enough except when I convert RAW files I save the "exports" as 16-bit TIFF format & Elements doesn't work with those. Sometimes I do ALL of my processing in the RAW software

Tips?
