buying photoshop

Post by r/tguy02 » Fri Oct 16, 2009 4:00 pm

Dont know if there was ever a thread about this but...
I'm looking to buy photoshop for myself, now i'm not real familiar with the different versions, and i want to know what will work best for me. I plan on just using this for my personal use, no business/marketing or anything. I want to know the capabilities as well or what it cant do. my computer can handle pretty much anything so that is not an issue either. Let me know so i can make a better educated decision as to what to get. thanks

I'm thinking any edition will work if it's only for personal use. I have been using CS2 for a long time for both school projects and personal stuffs and everything runs pretty smooth. I don't feel there's anything missing because there are still a lot of functions I haven't used. However the newest one is CS4 now. Maybe get the newest one will be the better idea.

actually you can use the 30 days download version on the adobe website first to see if you like it or not. For me it's a little bit complex to use the CS4 since I'm not quite used to the modern looking stuffs.

I got the CS3 Suite with everything. Love it! I use Photoshop and Flash a lot. I'm starting to learn how to use After Effects with my videos.

You can get CS4 Portable. It's a lightweight program you can run off a jump drive. It does all the little stuff most people who need a photo editing program. It's obviously not the full version. I am a graphic designer and I don't use PS to it's full abilities. It's an extensive program and would take a lot of working with it to learn it's full abilities. There are tons of tutorials and such online for showing you how to do graphics and text effects. It's a great tool to use with Illustrator as well.
