  • New adobe photoshop question

    Sorry if this is the wrong forum but it has been a while since I have done any restorations. I only assumed that Adobe would have a new version of Photoshop out by now. I currently use ver. 7.0. Is there any reason to look for a new version? I don't do anything fancy, I just do pretty basic repairs on some older photos. Appreciate any input. I do this as a part-time thing just to help friends and generate a little income to offset cost of paper and ink. Sure you all understand that. Thanks, John

    Adobe has updated the program about 4 times since Version 7. Called CS3.
    And yes there are some major tools added to help with the minor repairs that
    you are probably doing that will make them a lot easier.

      Hi Poppi,

      Chris is right, the newer versions have some very handy features.

      But if I was in your situation, I probably wouldn't be able to justify the enormous cost of upgrading.

        It's a cost/benefit analysis which only you can do.

        I use PS7, and despite the lack of some of the facilities and tools that CS3 has, I can still get results sufficient to my need, albeit with a little more work sometimes.

        Personally my situation sounds similar to yours, and I just can't (or won't) justify the expense of upgrading for a few tools I may or may not use.

            Hi! I'm from Texas and have been doing Photoshop for about 7 years as a hobby. The last 2 years I have been unable, due to the death of my wife, Hurricane Rita, Heart surgery, Back pain problems etc), to do much Photoshopping. I am trying to get back into it. I currently have version CS2 and am wondering...

            Hi there,

            I use PhotoShop CS3 and Bridge. Having worked on an image and saved it, I usually move it to the relevant 'final' folder from within Bridge. Select the image, right click and select either Copy To or Move To.

            But I always get a message telling me that Version...
