The Photoshop generation following PS 7 was initially called CS 8. It
was later re-named simply Adobe Photoshop CS. (CS = Creative Suite)
There are several places on the web where you can download CS 8. Just
Google for it. What you will get is a time-limited demo. For
permanent use you must purchase the license.
I'd suggest you download the demo and use your key to activate it for
permanent use. If it doesn't work, you aren't out anything.
