I have an interview with a recruiter next week. I will have to take either a photoshop or illustrator test. What is normally on these tests? How hard are they? What format are they normally in (e.g., multiple choice or are you given a project to complete)? What are some more obscure things I should make sure I know before I walk in there? Anonymous because people at work don't know I'm job hunting

I've got an Adobe Photoshop PSD file of my company logo. We've got a vendor making swag for us that needs the file as an Illustrator EPS file converted to outlines. Converting to EPS is fine, but I'm stumped on finding a way to get the outlines. Help, fellow nerds, Help!
We're buying a new laptop for my wife tomorrow to replace her aging desktop. The only thing she'll use it for is to digitally scrapbook. The only program she'll use really is Photoshop CS2. Is it worth it to pay the extra to get a laptop with a real graphics card or will things work just as well with an motherboard solution such as the Intel 950 that uses your RAM to fuel it? Right now we're leaning towards the HP dv9207us. We'd like to know if it's overkill or with one of the 700$ specials you always see with motherboard built-in graphics work just as well? Help?

Does anyone have a URL where I can download Adobe Photoshop CS (Not CS2) for Mac? I'm trying to reinstall it, but I do not have the original install package. I did find a download link for the CS trial version, but this version does not let me enter a serial number. The 'registration' menu item is grayed out. Alternatively, is there a way that I can plug in my serial number to the trial version that I found. Thanks.
I'm a GIMP user, and I'm trying to figure out how to mimic the actions one can set up on Photoshop. Specifically, I'd like to set up a sequence that sets photos to a standard size (600 x ___), adds a standard black border, flattens the image, and saves the whole thing to a set folder. I'm not the most savvy GIMP user, so clear instructions on how to do this sort of thing would be greatly appreciated.

irritatinglybasicfilter: I made a really big picture in photoshop. It is about 5 feet long. I want to print it, but I can only print one page of the whole picture - a small section of the whole thing. I looked at the photoshop help pages, and searched askme and the internet for help, but I'm afraid I know too little to even understand where to look for the answer to my dumb question. If it matters (I suspect it doesn't), I'm using CS version 8 on my Mac.
Photoshop question: I have a large image which I want to color-correct. I've been testing on a shrunken version of the file, and I'm actually happy with the results of just doing auto-levels. However, if I do auto-levels on the full-size image, I get totally different results. How can I get the same results on the full-size image? [more inside]

Does anybody know of anyplace I can get a cheap legal copy of Adobe Illustrator CS2 and Photoshop CS2? I would be fine purchasing a used copy if it was completely legal. I do not have the money right now to buy the software at the normal retail price but would like to learn them. Also, if I were to buy a used product from eBay, what should I make sure it includes to make it a legal copy? Cheers!
