I started with 5.0, then went to 7.0. That's where I am now, and I'll probably wait till there's at least one more upgrade before I opt for it.

Photoshop LE 1.04 was my first Photoshop version; the first full one was 2.0. I skipped the 4.0 release, but upgraded for all the other ones.

Hi Everyone! This is my first post also.

I actually started out using Paint Shop Pro 7 then upgraded to 8. Of course everyone told me that I just had to learn Photoshop if I wanted to be taken seriously in the industry. So now I have Photoshop 7, which I'm learning slowly but surely.

I highly doubt I'll be upgrading to anything further especially after attempting to get help from Adobe Tech Support, which btw, isn't a toll-free call. Only to be told that since I don't have the most current version (CS) any help they provide will cost me an additional $40.00. But of course if I upgrade tech support is free. After all the manicures and pedicures I had to sacrifice to get the version I do have, there's no freaking way I'm going to give them another red cent!

Just joined recently after reading Katrin Eismann's Restoration and Retouching book. Her web site has a link to here. I started with PS 3.0, still have the floppy disks somewhere, upgraded to 4.0, then 5.0, then 5.5, then 6.0, to 7.0 and now CS. Super busy at a local studio retouching blemishes and such off high school seniors so don't have much time to explore the site like I would like to.

I started on v2 using a collegues Mac (as at that time I was PC, still am!)
Had no idea what I was doing, and played around with it at every opportunity.

Went to the verious versions 3,4,5,7, 8, and am still 'playing around with it' although I hope I have learnt a bit along the way

I stated with a Beta of Version 2.0 and this will really blow your socks off.... I was running on an Atari emulating a Mac Plus. Ahhh the days of Font DA Mover and such.

I only started using Photoshop CS about six months ago. It was a mandatory buy (gotta love educational discounts) for a class I was taking and have been hooked ever since.

I started with PS 6 and upgraded to 7. Although I appreciated the upgrade the difference was not enough for me to decide to jump to CS or even CS 2. I will probably wait atleast one more upgrade before I spend money on another version.
