Photoshop WACOM Upgrade

I was wondering about the Photoshop WACOM upgrade offer. Is this a full version of photoshop, or is it a watered down release?

Will I have to install Elements every single time I reformat my machine if I have to? Do I have to have Elements installed all the time? Can I install photoshop by itself and it still work with my new tablet?

Anyone done this? Any idea? Is this a unique version or something?

    Accepted Solution

    You are asking multiple questions when it should be one question, but I'll try to answer:
    As far as I can tell it is the full version of Adobe Photoshop CS4. Based upon my own experience upgrading other Adobe products, I am pretty certain you will have to reinstall Elements and then upgrade it if you have reformat your machine as they really only send you an upgrade package, not brand new installation for Cs4, but I can't imagine why you would think you would need to do that so often?
    Once you upgrade it will no longer be Elements so you won't need/have Elements installed all the time.

    Yeah, it seems that way. ;_;
    Will I be able to use this version to upgrade to future Adobe Photoshop versions?
