I'm about to put in an order for a new PC... and wonder about the right Photoshop upgrade path. I've been using CS on an old W2K Pentium 4 system. I can (a) continue with CS while waiting for CS4; (b) grab PSE6 while waiting for CS4; or (c) upgrade to CS3 and forget about CS4. I'm a pure hobbyist and I have a lot to learn, about both photography and PP, but I'm willing to work at it. What would you recommend for me, and why? Thanks!

Can you skip three versions with the adobe upgrade scheme?

CS works fine, all CS3 will give you is newer ACR and more adjustment layers, nothing else makes much difference IMHO.

You can upgrade from PS 7 to CS3 (skipping CS and CS2) so it stands to reason you could upgrade from CS to CS4 (skipping CS2 and CS3). In my case, I'm eligible for academic pricing anyway, so the upgrade pricing is not the issue.
