    Adobe Photoshop

    photoshop is cheaper in the US than in HK. Is there any problem buying in the US and using it here in HK?

    No problem using it anywhere in the world.
    You may have problems buying it though.
    To buy from the US you either have to physically be there or have your Adobe account based there.
    If you happen to set up an account with Adobe in HK (or any other country) then you will not be able to buy from the US online store.

    Registration should not be a problem, all you do is enter the serial number online, but I can't say for sure that it will work as I have not been able to buy online from Adobe since moving to HK.
    My account was created in a different country, one where I no longer live or have any credit card facility, but Adobe don't allow for the fact that I have relocated.

    The last time I checked the cheapest version was HK$5,600. Price.com.hk lists CS4 at HK$6,550, no ideal of availability of CS5.

    Just to be annoying asshats they have 5 versions now too, ugh:

    Adobe Creative Suite 5 Design Premium and Design Standard are two editions of the Adobe Creative Suite 5 family of products intended for professional print, web, interactive and mobile designers. The key difference between Design Premium and Design Standard is the addition of Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended, Adobe Flash Catalyst CS5, Adobe Flash Professional CS5, Adobe Dreamweaver CS5, and Adobe Fireworks CS5 to the Premium version.

    Adobe Creative Suite 5 Web Premium is an edition of the Adobe Creative Suite 5 family of products intended for professional web designers and developers.

    Adobe Creative Suite 5 Production Premium is an edition of the Adobe Creative Suite 5 family of products intended for professional rich media and video post-production experts who create projects for film, video, broadcast, web, DVD, Blu-ray Disc, and mobile devices.

    Adobe Creative Suite 5 Master Collection contains applications from all of the above editions

    Personally think the packages are good, if you know what you need.

    I wouldn't want to fork out for stand alone apps since they cost more, or the master collection and have loads of apps i never use.

    5600 must have been for the academic versions.

    If anyone is interested i still have a CS2 design premium for sale.
    Brand new, never registered and never installed.
