what should I get? I see different versions. Is there a paticular part #?

Is there really a difference? My OS is widows 7. I don't have a current PS program to upgrade.

Wow! I figured this being a photograpers site, I might get actual feedback as to which version is actually most beneficial.

And I've looked at Adobe, but it's mostly CS6 info, not much about what distinguishes "extended" or "full version."
But thanks ...

3D is pretty much the only difference between PS and PS extended.

I appreciate the link tho .. and trust me, I've searched all over.

For regular photo work the "Standard" version works fine. The Extended version has additional features at a price, it's up to you whether they will benefit you.

As to differences between the CS5 extended version and the CS6, I don't know of any, but I've never messed with the extended version. Read the CS6 descriptions and you should get an idea.

But like I said, the Standard version should be fine if you are doing "normal" photography.

Thanks Tony, so I'm assuming the extended version has more to do with video and other things I may not need.
Hmm .. makes sense.

And again, I'm not interested in CS6, unless I could at some point in time upgrade to it, from CS5.
I appreciate the effort guys!

Are you getting some kind of "special deal" on CS5? Are you sure it is legitimate? If it is legit then yes you can upgrade, but be careful about "special deals"!

In fact, Adobe has an offer out to people who buy CS5 but want to upgrade to CS6:

Wow thanks again Tony .. it appears that offer in the link may have expired ?
And yeah, I've watched some auctions with reputable sellers and read the feedback after purchases.

I've seen some go for just over $400 .. most are free shipping and have upgrade options.
Like this one: http://www.ebay.com …ain_0&hash=item​2a1d6dc850 (external link)
Many more like this ..

No chance of getting the academic version for $240? It's surprisingly easy to qualify for the discount.


Replacing my Canon 7D, Tokina 12-24mm, Canon 17-55mm, Sigma 30mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4, and 150-500mm with a Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. I still have the 17-55 and the 30 available for sale.

Ah, Tomi I didn't realize the Adobe offer had expired, sorry!

As to the EBay deal, well, I don't know -- it's a "buyer beware" thing. If the seller had opened the software, installed it and registered it and then "resealed" it, then it would not be legitimate and it would be bad for you, so I'd just be careful about that sort of thing!

LOL no biggie Tony, I've done worse! :P

The thing about eBay. Yeah. Well, I've been fortunate. Communication is key.

And thanks cacawcacaw .. but the academic version isn't gonna cut it.
Atleast from my research, some applications are not available.
I should just get CS6 already and be done with it. I like the black back-ground. ;)
