    Photography is a real wonder of 20th century. They can remember the most interesting and the happiest time of our lives. But in the 21st century, Photography is not only a simple hobby,but it is also a great art. This great Adobe suite is really outstanding, and this great suite is not only photography suite. The programs in this suite are of great value. I can’t believe my eyes. Such a great offer. thank you.
    Do all five steps.

  27. Oliver says:

    I am a web developer who loves to ride the wave of latest web technologies. The new enhancements CS 5.5 offers, will ease my transition into these great new tools and frameworks, such as support for jQuery Mobile and Flash Builder 4.5!!! Developer tools such as Dreamweaver CS 5.5 would be an awesome college companion for a Computer Science major! When I can, I also enjoy working with, editing, and sometimes sharing family videos. So the inclusion of tools such as After Effects and Premiere would be awesome! Some volunteer work I have done involved me creating a brochure for an organization. It would be great to have the latest and greatest tools, such as InDesign and Firework CS 5.5, to make future changes to it where programs such as Microsoft Word can not. Thank you for this opportunity!

  28. Conan says:

    I hope I win as I am trying to get into digital and creative media!

  62. Zurah Shaker says:

    Hi! I am a desperate (and willing to do anything) to get Adobe’s Creative Suite 5.5 Master Collection for free because being an art student is an expensive responsibility. I am nearing graduation, but loans are piling up and I still don’t have every program to become the successful graphic designer I am destined to be. How will the Master Collection help me? …well, there are so many projects it could help me with!

    In the near future, I want to establish a non-profit clothing line to benefit global issues like poverty, equal rights, etc. because I feel that today’s world needs more positivity.

    Having the latest version of Illustrator would help me create illustrations for t-shirts. Photoshop would help me edit photos of the shirts/models. Dreamweaver would help me create the website. InDesign would help me make clothing catalogs. After Effects would help me create a promotional video regarding my up-and-coming clothing line.

    These programs would also help me create a stronger portfolio, that way I could actually support myself while making the world a better place with my clothing line!!!

    Please choose me…I’m on my knees, begging… well not literally lol :]

    Check out my portfolio… thanks again!

  63. Melanie says:

    I want one! That would be simply awesome!

  75. Ryan Gabbard says:

  76. Kara Smarsh says:

    Please let me win this contest for CS5.5! I’m a senior graphic design student and I can’t get away with using my school’s Adobe Suite anymore as I have to work on my thesis and at an internship over the summer.

  77. Rachael Dart says:

    I am a high school senior, graduating on the 18th of June, and I will be attending Seattle Pacific University this fall. I will be majoring in Visual Communications and I am trying to figure out how to pay for college, let alone all of the extra expenses. I recently upgraded my computer and since then I have honestly been running off of a trial of CS5.5. I love design, and I have taught myself a substantial amount. This year, for my senior project, I took my knowledge and started up my own business with it. If I were to win this contest, I would finally be able to step up my business (and redesign, as I have learned so much since it was even published), be prepared for school this fall, and it would help me to pursue my future career in design.

  78. Justin says:

    This would be awesome to win this… jQuery Mobile support in Dreamweaver!!!!!

  79. Iman Hashemi says:

    Thanks guys for this opportunity!!
    I’m a multimedia student & I would love to try out the Flash CS5.5!
    Would be just great to own the collection!!

    Good luck to me! 😉

  80. Britany pratt says:

    I can’t find my CS5 cd for my adobe programs. It would mean a lot to me to get this version. I don’t have money to afford another cd for these programs. I desperately need them for school since I am a graphic design student. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!

    I go to SacState in California. I am so.very.thankful for the discounts that Adobe makes available to students. I wouldn’t be able to afford the wonderful products that I use without those generous discounts. I started working with local photographers editing portrait sessions and weddings. It has been a great opportunity for me. After I graduate I plan to turn it into a full time business. Thank you, Adobe for making that possible! :)
