Apologies if this is in the wrong forum - I'm doing this in a rush on my phone. I'm looking at buying Photoshop elements bundled with premier elements from amazon uk. Would this work if I installed it on my comp in nz. I know adobe are quite strict with thier products. Cheers

Have you checked the adobe NZ site?
I dont see any issues, but you might have to download specific packages that are not included in the NZ release?

Once you do currency conversion, whats the pricing difference compared to purchasing from any of the software reatilers (online) in NZ?

Dont forget the creditcard charge for currency conversion and any GST if your over the threshold.

It's that. Compared to NZ I think there is a decent difference ($100 +) if I've done my research correctly. I am in the UK at the moment so I would take it home with me. I don't THINK there would be any gst to pay?

Buy it.  No GST and cheaper. It's the same software.

You can buy software so much cheaper overseas, however manufacturers often restrict people to buying in their own market. Now with systems like NZ posts youshop that will hopefully put an end to that. My only concern could be the software authorisation system detecting the IP isn't from the country it was purchased from, but I doubt they region lock software...at least not yet.
