Add frame-script using native support for JavaScript including code-hinting, code-coloring, and more.

Last day for everyone to get in on the $9.99/mo. Photoshop-Lightroom deal

The Photoshop Photography Program remains open to everyone (regardless of whether you’ve owned a previous version) through the end of the day. After today & through the rest of the month, you’ll still be able to sign up, but you’ll need to own Photoshop CS3 or higher.
As a reminder, the availability of these deals is what’s limited in time. The $9.99/month price is the ongoing price (i.e. it’s not limited to 12 months).
