I was wondering if folks thought the upgrade to PS CS was worth it particularly for someone who is still learning PS? I have PS 7 and don't know whether the upgrade is worth it until I am more facile with the product I have.

Any comments will be appreciated.


regards

I would say it depends on what you are doing. If you are a designer and do both internet and print design, then I'd say it would be worth it. If all you are doing is working with Photos, then it may not be worth it to you. But if you're looking for someone to justify your desire to upgrade, then I say "you just gotta have it, it will absolutely improve your efficiency" [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

If you have a digital camera that shoots RAW, that's the end of the discussion. Go buy the upgrade. CS's Camera Raw plugin is truly righteous.

Otherwise, CS really rocks da house, but there's no one absolute gotta-have it that completely renders PS7 a non-starter. Its file-browser is orders of magnitude better, and it just generally has better stuff. The Photo Filter plugins are nice, but they're not anything you can't do manually with a little knowledge.

YES. And go check out Lynda.com for some training... at $25 a month it is MORE than worth it... Even I have leared a great deal from her site and I have been using PS every day for 8 years...
