I needed to buy PhotoShop 11. Now, don't be like my husband and ask me WHY I needed to buy PhotoShop 11 when I already have PS 8, 9 and 10. I just did.
So, since I've waited so long, it is now ANCIENT software. I googled it, and it came up for sale on Ebay by some guy with a 99.1 percent positive rating. The software was advertised as NEW and UNOPENED.
Here is the back of the box:
The directions say to "find the Serial Number on the BACK of the DVD case"; however there IS NO CASE. The DVD's are in little white UNmarked envelopes.
There is that little box down in the corner with some weird code on it, but Jerry says that is NOT a Serial Number.
This is SO MADDENING!
This is a quiet Saturday with only sheets to wash and put back on the bed, and it is the perfect time to install this new software and learn how to use it. But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
And for you computer geeks out there, I bet you are saying, "There should be a "redemption code".
There is. Here it is:
I put it in FOUR times. My husband, of course, thinks I can't do anything "computer" properly, so he came over to rescue me. He put it in himself. All five times, I got an error message that said, "This number is NOT active you IDIOT!" Well, something like that.
Then my husband gave me the "I can't BELIEVE you bought that on Ebay, Joy!!!" speech. "WHAT were you thinking!?"
By then, I was crying, but not so much that I couldn't remind him of the ballast he had just installed 15 minutes earlier over my counter. The ballast he BOUGHT ON EBAY just last week!
Yes. I went to Ebay to post a horrible review on this man's space, and a message came up asking me to contact him. So I emailed him telling him a shortened version of all of the above. I have not heard back. This means I will have to go downstairs -- get the sheets out of the dryer -- put them on the bed -- and then go outside and swing and pet Jackie. She is ALWAYS so understanding. If I'm not swinging, she puts her head between my knees and just looks up into my eyes. SO ADORABLE. I'll have to take a picture for you.
