Adobe Photoshop CS6 is the industry-standard image editing software. It's a verb. For some projects — say, making unbelievable hi-res versions of scenes from Metroid — there's no substitute. But like most professional software, it's crazy expensive.
If you're a bona fide student, you can pick up a student version of Photoshop CS6 for $320. But for the rest of us, if you want a legal copy, you're looking at software that could very well cost more than your laptop. It makes sense to buy CS6 on sale. Right now, Officemax has a 20% off code that — surprise! — even works on expensive software, including Photoshop CS6. The code SAVE20 knocks the price of a retail copy down to $560, which is a historically notable price. Pick it up, and get shoopin'. [Officemax via Fatwallet]

The T5i Is Up For Pre-Order. What Does This Mean For T4i Prices?
This isn't really a deal, but it's something that the thrifty should note. Canon's T5i, the (exceedingly minor) successor to Gizmodo's favorite budget DSLR, has gone up for pre-order for $750 at Amazon, along with other major camera retailers. While DSLRs retain value better than a lot of other consumer technology, having a new model on sale could lead to some sweet bargains on the T4i. We'll keep an eye on it.
