Hey, AI:

Glad to see you made your 1st post. Interesting question. Glad I was among the first to get to vote. I started with 5.5 and upgraded to 7.0.

Decided to pass on CS -- at least until the first update is available. Even then, it's unlikely I'll upgrade. I'll probably hold out for (the equivalent of) 9.0.

~Danny~

Hi Pantone Menace (gee, I was slow to catch that one!),

I've used Photoshop since 2.5, so I clicked 2.0 just to impress

fun poll

I was introduced to Photoshop pretty early on. A friend owned a type setting studio and had lots of fun little macs around with Photoshop 3 on them

I had never really touched a computer, saw dos and thought..nah!
but when I saw photoshop!! whole new thinking!
and once 4 came around with layers!!! I never looked back

Started out with 4.0 (now using CS), and all I remember doing with 4.0 was brightness/contrast for underexposed or overexposed photographs, and unsharpen mask to sharpen out of focus photographs. At that time Photoshop seemed incredibly full-featured (still does today to think of it).

I'm with him. Started with 2.5 although I actually owned 2.0 or 2.1 or something like that.

I actually started with Corel Draw/Paint and upgraded that software suite for many years before finally switching over to PhotoShop 5.0. Of course now I'm up to PhotoShop CS.

I started with 3.0 and painfully went through every upgrade And every time I say "Ok, this is perfect, I never need to upgrade!!!" Silly me!

I would swear I answered this question, but don't see a reply by me, so I guess I didn't!
I started out with 3.0, upgraded to 4.0, and stayed with that until upgrading to 7. It was a bit of a leap, as I really was quite happy with 4. Am now using CS.
