Does anyone else have an issue activating (getting serial #) for the Elements 13? I just purchased a version at BestBuy, followed the instructions on line to obtain the serial # and the webpage is asking me to create account!!! Seriously??? Do I have to also get a cavity search perhaps as well???
Adobe, I think this is way over the top. Making it optional is okay, but forcing people to give up their privacy in exchange for using the program I think is ILLEGAL.

Creating an ID is required to activate the software and register your serial #. More details on Adobe ID's here: http://blogs.adobe.com/photoshopdotco...

This information should have been posted on the box. If I new this when I was purchasing it, I would not have gotten it.
I like my privacy and I'm sure many others do as well and all these data mining companies keep intruding and giving people no choice. This should be made illegal. Pay lots of money for the software and then get a rectal exam too.

Will never purchase any of the Adobe products again.
