    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.

        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.

                      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!

                              New here too, I went from PhotoDeluxe to Photoshop 7.0 (a lot like photodeluxe but more features), I also have PSP for small things. Am still learning both.
