Hey I'm an F'n Jerk!® twitter.com/SgtBaxter facebook.com/Bryan.Eckert
I try and at least give all the new features in an upgrade a look see, but I find I don't always have a use for all of them in my day to day use of PS. And of those, something I may find a purpose for in my work environment may not get used when I am creating things at home, and vice versa. But heck, on a daily basis I can find new things to learn and new ways to apply the existing features of my current versions of PS. It just requires a certain degree if intrepidity...<br><br><br>Thanks for the PDF link, Spark Collector!<br><br>
Photoshop's been adding features for photographers with it's more recent versions. Some of these things were not possible in earlier versions and it's not only for designers anymore. The file browser and camera raw work flow are worth the upgrade price, if you use these things. I see Photoshop adding more features for serious photographers.<br><br>[color:blue]"In light of the four million digital SLRs [single lens reflex cameras] expected to ship this year, more photographers than ever will be making Photoshop CS2 their digital darkroom of choice," Bryan Lamkin, senior vice president of digital imaging and digital video products at Adobe, said in a news release.<br><br>Photoshop CS2 will be available either as a stand-alone product or as part of Adobe's Creative Suite 2 for Mac OS 10.2.8 and higher and for Windows XP Service Packs 1 and 2 in May for U.S. and Canadian customers.

Thanks Sparky. I like to use a lot of the fun features in PS. Like Leslie I am still using PS7. I would like to take advantage of text on a path. I have no idea when I am going to be able to upgrade but it isn't the current version.<br><br>
