You're right, when I saw Creative Suite, that's what I've downloaded.
I've just checked again and and PS alone is there indeed. It's only a
question of language. She has an Adobe account, may be she could get a
french version through that account.

For now, she's thinking about buying the most recent, she can get an "edu"
price at about $250CA.
There is a Preferences setting for language. If you hunt through the
installation, you'll find Resources for all the languages. I only use the
en-us version, so I am not familiar with how to change, but it should be
possible.

She could try GIMPshop, which is the GIMP with a front end that behaves
sort of like Photoshop. They don't get any cheaper.....

http://www.gimpshop.com/
1st - I visited the site but it seems to want to install something called
"Optimum installer", I don't know what that is and I'm not sure I want this
kind of things on a freshly installed Windows.

2nd - Does it have a French version or is it a multi-language installer, I
didn't see it on the site.

Thanks

The project has an interesting background. It's hard to tell
who owns that site. Probably not Scott Moschella (as described here).

Optimum Installer.

Go to the *real* Gimp site,
http://www.gimp.org/

You should be a lot happier there :)

Except I was apparently confused.

I suddenly realized that GIMPshop is not an alternative place to find
GIMP...

When I clicked on the "Download for Windows" button at

http://www.gimpshop.com/welcome

it looked normal, and offered to download Gimpshop_Setup.exe, which
sounds innocuous to me.

But I haven't tried to run it yet.

Never mind. My brain is not in ger yet today :)

Scrolling down the download page, I see screen shots of the Optimum
Installer (I still haven't executed the download).

I see in those screenshots that Optimum Installer offers to install a
toolbar and so on, so it's now (at last) raising my alarm flags too.

Googling for Optimum Installer picked up a number of hits, including
instructions for removing Optimum Installer.

This site

www.dslreports.com/forum/r27821791-Is-Optimum-Installer-Adware-or-Malware-

was my first hit, and several posts in that thread call it a Spybot
false positive. ATM, it's the only link I've looked at.

Gear. That sentence was obviously self-referent :)

The spell checker didn't notice it, so ger must be a legitimate word
(this spell checker has a few problems).

Looking at several links in that Google search, I came to the conclusion
that I don't like Optimum Installer.

To be fair, though, there is this site,
http://klitedownload.com/learnmore.html

which claims to give information about Optimum Installer, including how
to get rid of the software it might install.

Still...

One last word (don't you hope?) --

http://www.gimphoto.com

Which includes a link to

http://www.gimphoto.com/2007/08/features.html

which bills itself as a "free Photoshop alternative for photo and image
editor"

Which is slightly tricky grammar :)

My deepest apologies. The site was clean last time I installed Gimpshop
from that URL.

Obviously someone's been hacking at it. :-/

Whe it works right, it's pretty close to the PS interface.

When I checked it just now, it seems tha Kaspersky doesn't like the
GIMPshop site either. Apologies for the bad link.

Did you read what happened to the developer ?

No matter how good your intentions are, there's always someone
to take advantage of your work on the Internet.
