You can be a student or the parent of a student...

but really all legal sources are around the same price otherwise.

Since you have no concern about using an illegal copy, you can buy them for R$10 ~ US$5 on the streets here in Brazil.  ;D

I just want to know how to differentiate between the legal and illegal. so that I'm sure that the software I buy is legal. Is there any possibility to buy from the reseller. I mean those who want to resell their old copy of legal software?

there are many sellers on the internet that claim to sell a legal copy for 50-70% of the normal price yet it is as illegal as $5 version - so yes there must be some owners selling 2nd hand copy but it's very tricky to distinguish them.

The cheapest site I found that I would feel comforatable ordering from was Amazon.com.  A design suite is about $450 cheaper than to buy locally in central Canada.

Academic License does not allow commercial use either

Adobe currently has a deal for $100 off CS4 upgrades until the end of the month. I bought mine the other day, so it should arrive today. It's not super cheap, but every little bit helps.

I was a little ticked that I had to buy a more expensive upgrade to upgrade from CS2 though.

I purchased a legal copy of Illustrator CS3 from Ebay. You must be sure that you can get the license transfer through Adobe.

Is GIMP similar to photoshop ?

If you want to buy a second hand copy, look at sellers in your neighbourhood. So you can pick it up, and check for yourself if it's a legal version!

GIMP is similar to Photoshop. Major differences are no adjustment layers (a biggie), and little support for 16 bit images. However GIMP development is addressing these issues and I'm not sure what the latest state of play is. Check out www.gimp.org. Inkscape is an open source vector program. SVG is the native format but might export to the formats commonly required by stock sites.

Could you let me know if the SVG could be converted to AI format? How?

From the Inscape FAQ:
Quote
Inkscape natively supports opening or importing SVG, SVGZ (gzipped SVG), PDF, and AI (Adobe Illustrator) formats.

With the help of extensions, Inkscape can open a number other vector formats. For importing PostScript or EPS, you need to install Ghostscript and make sure ps2pdf is in your PATH. For formats of Dia, XFig, or Sketch, you need to have these programs installed. For CorelDraw, CGM, and SK1 files, you need to have UniConverter installed.

Inkscape can natively import most raster formats (JPG, PNG, GIF, etc.) as bitmap images, but it can only export PNG bitmaps.

Inkscape can save as SVG, SVGZ, PDF, Postscript/EPS/EPSi, Adobe Illustrator (*.ai), LaTeX (*.tex), POVRay (*.pov), HPGL, and others.

Actually, no it doesn't

Apparently, outside of North America, the "student edition" of Adobe software does indeed restrict, via license, use of this software to non-commercial use.

Actually, it does, in North America, where I am from, and since you and the OP are anonymous, I can only speak about the terms that apply where I hail from.

Sean, my original post was based on the rules that apply in my jurisdiction (EU), so if its ok for you why isn't it ok for me?

Regarding your original post, how are we to know where you are from, as you (and the OP) are anonymous.

Why are Adobe's rules different for you?  Dunno.  Abuse outside of America?  More money to be made in the rest of the world?

Adobe hates Europe. Prices are also higher in European countries!
