CS 6

Assuming that Adobe hasn't managed to make Photoshop even slower, CS 6 looks very promising.

I'm still on CS3, I think. Maybe 4, but that's the highest it could be. Time to upgrade?

Re: CS 6

Caedmon, only if your current version doesn't do something you really need. There are DOS programs which I find sufficient for my needs still, but how could I run them? Most emulation pales in comparison to the original DOS, missing vast collections of functions. Meanwhile, the more modern programs are actually less useful for my purposes.

Re: CS 6

Caedmon, I found CS5 nicer than CS2 or CS4. It fixed some issues I had, but I can't recall for the life of me what they were… Hmm.

Ed - One of the things I've noticed with Apple is that staying on top of application updates is important. Apple puts enough changes into about every other major release that upgrading to the newest versions of major programs really improves performance. Plus, Adobe has tendencies to add significant new tools, not just shinier interfaces. Are those tools necessary? Clearly not, as I've gotten along without them. But I'd use them if I had them.

Tim - I looked; I have CS4. Before that, I had CS2. Before that, I had the last version before they went to the CS# system. I guess that means it's time. ;)

Re: CS 6

Of course, right now the conversation is moot as I don't have money for expensive software, and if I did have the money, would use it elsewhere. An upgrade this year would only come as an unsolicited gift.

Re: CS 6

Don't forget the student packages, if you do decide to move up. That saves a ton of money (though it is still expensive).
