I believe that the Adobe Premiere 4 cd has Photoshop and Illustrator demos on it.

Hotmix 18 have the photoshop 3.0 demo but not sure if premiere
is there (I think its just a featured product).

But you still need a license for photoshop to be usefull.
Why not use gimp,

Unfortunately photoshop is of lesser use on SGI's because it's such an old version.
Extensions are lacking and it's just not up-to-date.

You COULD use it, but for what it's worth I doubt it can do much more than The Gimp or something like that can, and you don't have to deal with licenses and demos and such.

Well there's Kai's Power Tools:

The Photoshop media pack shows up on eBay from time to time (this one just closed; my Photoshop media pack looks just like it):

I know a couple of colorists that work in the comic book industry that still use Photoshop 3.0 to this day, but not on SGI unfortunately.

PhotoShop 3.0 is very good. In fact it has all the tools I need for my graphics.
Don't know what they added in version 4,5,6,7. But seems like I just don't use them, and still I get good graphics :)

The demo has the exact same functionality as the version on the full product's media (minus some extras only on the full CD). Either way you won't be able to fully use Photoshop until you do one of 3 things:

a: Get a machine with a photoshop license (hard to find, probably illegal to transfer license anyway) :shock:
b: Try to beg Adobe to generate a key for your machine (not going to happen) :cry:
c: Use a crack (which is illegal no matter what version you do it to) :x

As for the demo versions, HOTMIX 16 CDs have the latest versions of Photoshop and Illustrator on them, and HOTMIX 11 has an older version. Other HOTMIXs may also have the demo, but I don't own them to check. You might want to try the adobe ftp to see if they have the demo hiding somewhere...

I thought it was abandonware and Adobe wasn't really concerned about them anymore. I'm sure they could get very upset, but they have been abandoned, so.... who knows?

It just as may be true, but even if not a single person or atourney from Adobe cares, you can still get in alot of trouble over abandonware...

..hi all

i've phtshp 3.01 ill 5.5.1 and premiere
the first two needs license to run in full mode
and for phtshp you can install the sgi_photoshop package..

premiere not need any license
install.. it and run

...but i'm a GIMP experienced user

...i hope you install and enjoy gimp

it's not so hard to understand how the interface works
and if you get some troubles ... loook at the online manual
all and more at http://www.gimp.org

for me the better choice
..phtshp it's too old

As per ps3 being unusable without a license. Use hexcurse to edit a few values in one file and the demo version becomes the full version. See the usenet archives for specifics. Ditto for illustrator.

filmGIMP/CinePaint is a better choice IMO. It's got a much better layout and has the nice feautre of showing you how big your damn brush is with the cursor so you don't have to guess.
