Default PSA 2 ?


I just took a jaunt over to PSA forum and find that PSA 2 is now available.
They say the upgrade is $25 but I haven't found out how to order it.
RAY, you might know about this and so far would you say it's worth the money. That darn forum is obsessed with complaining.

JOE,
Thanks for the quick comeback. I went to the link and noticed that I can get the CD for another $10. I could give it to my daughter when version 3 comes out. I haven't bought any software without a CD.
Sometimes when there's a problem I'm told to uninstall and reinstall so what do I do without the CD?

Hi Marty,

The install / uninstall is not really an issue. What you receive is an auto-executable zip file.
Once you run it, it will create a temporary folder on your hard drive. This folder will contain the
exact same files found on the CD. So, what you can do, is to burn this file onto a CD, and put a
copy of the e-mail you'll receive (in TXT format) on the CD as well (no more "lost the serial"). By
the way, back up your catalogs before installing PSA2, just in case. And don't uninstall PSA1, PSA2
will do this for you.

As far as how much the upgrade is worth it... it depends on what kind of problems you had before. I
couldn't burn VideoCD (bad quality). Got fixed. Moving files from my hard drive to a CD (DVD)
wasn't reliable. Now it seems to be. Applying the same caption on multiple pictures is also a nice
feature.

There are dozens of other new feature, small or big, like the possibility to view picture by their
location, create a tag based on the folder name, etc.

I'd say for 25$, it's really worth it!

JOE and RAY,
Yes, it will be worth it to me. I think PSA is the best thing that ever happened to computer photo hobiest (next to Elements, of course)
Thanks, I'll download it after I copy my catalogs.

Jim Jütte and I are trying to help as much as we can, but there are several individuals on a war
path against Adobe. And the sad part is that some regulars don't help neither. They just throw
more oil on the fire... !

Marty, give it a few days more (my estimate is that by next Tuesday, things should have settle
down). It took a whole week for Photoshop forum to purge the madness of the Photoshop CS
Activation... (a fairly simple way to protect a software against piracy, btw).

course)

I'm 100% with you on that statement Marty! PSA is really a fantastic piece of software! And wait
untill you start to burn things on CD / DVD.. All kind of small messages to let you know what's
happening, very cool!

RAY, I don't mean to back you in a corner. Now I'm stuck with my Roxio CD Creator. I can burn a disk and back up until it stops and says one or more files are too large. I can't find under help or in my User book just how big files can be.

Marty,

I only tried a small number of files, but big ones (my camera raw files, 8Mb each). I didn't
encounter that problem. Is this error hapening in PSA or Roxio ?

Marty,

The size limit for files are:
* 650 MB for a 74 minute CD
* 700 MB for a 80 minute CD

So this means that the combined size of all files you wish to put on one CD cannot excede the above size restrictions (imposed by the capacity of the CD).

One can burn multiple CDs of course, if they have a lot of data to burn.

"PSA is really a fantastic piece of software!" has aroused my curiosity. What the heck is it? I went to Google to find out, and got things like "Professional Sports Authenticator"
