ok i am asking for gentleness in advance---
i am wondering where it is possible to get cheap/free photoshop for my mac.
yes i know there are going to be people who crucify me for not paying full price but here's the thing my other lap top (which was a pc) crashed recently RIGHT AFTER i bought photoshop for it. i had been wanting a mac for a while but now obviously cannot transfer photoshop because the version i have is for pcs :(
i am also unbelievably broke (as that i had to replace my laptop!!)
so i'm wondering if anyone out there knows of anything that would help----also in case this is an important detail i am not using photoshop to edit pictures to make $ off of...it is for personal use.

thanks in advance

Pablo Neruda: Puedo escribir los versos más tristes esta noch (Tonight I Can Write)

Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
Write, for example, 'The night is shattered,
and the blue stars shiver in the distance.'
The night wind revolves in the sky and sings.
Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too.
Through nights like this one I held her in my arms.
I kissed her again and again under the endless sky.
She loved me, and sometimes I loved her too.
How could one not have loved her great still eyes?
Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
To think that I do not have her. To feel that I have lost her.
To hear the immense night, still more immense without her,
And the verse falls to the snow like dew to the pasture.
What does it matter that my love could not keep her.
That night is shattered and she is not with me.
This is all. In the distance someone is singing. In the distance.
My soul is not satisfied that it has lost her.
My sight searches for her as though to go to her.
My heart looks for her, and she is not with me.
The same night whitening the same trees.
We, of that time, are no longer the same.
I no longer love her, that is certain, but how I loved her.
My voice tried to find the wind to touch her hearing.
Another's. She will be another's. Like my kisses before.
Her voice. Her bright body. Her infinite eyes,
I no longer love her, that is certain, but maybe I love her.
Love is so short, forgetting is so long.
Because through nights like this one I held her in my arms
my soul is not satisfied that it has lost her.
Though this be the last pain that she makes me suffer,
and these the last verses that I write for her.

1.  the blue stars shiver in the distance
2.  under the endless sky
3.  her great still eyes
4.  the immense night
5.  falls to the snow like dew to the pasture
6.  shattered
7.  someone is singing
8.  trees
9.  my kisses
10. Her bright body
