What version of Photoshop do you have?

To help me figure out what types of articles to focus on it always helps me to know what everyone is currently using with software. With Photoshop I know there are still many people running CS3 or CS4 (or others) and it would be helpful to know what the breakdown of versions are. Please take a quick minute to answer the question below so I can know where to best focus my future articles:

  1. I’m still running CS3. I intend to upgrade at the next release, but I’ve really been using Lightroom much more than Photoshop. I’m just a photography hobbyist so I have to pick my battles.

  2. I only have PS Elements, and Elements 7 at that. I really do appreciate finding Photoshop tutorials that go the extra mile and point out what parts of the tutorial can and can’t be done in Elements.

  3. SO, I started off slow and am advancing slowly but surely. I am using Aperture 3 and thinking of going to lightroom or photoshop. Any advice?

  4. Lightroom and Aperture really share many features. If you know Aperture 3 and it is able to do what you need of it then I would stick with that vs moving over to Lightroom. Photoshop on the other hand does offer many advanced things you can’t do with either of those other softwares and I think is always a needed part of any photographers toolset.

  5. im still using cs3 as well but i am hoping to upgrade at the next reless.

  6. Thanks for the advice Mark. I guess I’ll be getting around to photoshop when season slows down abit. I don’t know too much about it, and I see there are several versions. Any suggestions on what version?

  7. Thanks Mark,

    I do have another question, I started out with a cannon rebel kit. Now have 24-105 lens and getting ready to buy either 7d or 5d. I get so confused doing research, I can’t tell which would be the better camera and the cost justification between the two. Am looking forward to video capabilities as well.

    Any advice on this would be great.

    Thanks Again

  8. Photoshop CS4 here … keep meaning to upgrade … will do it one of these days!!

  9. Hi Dan,

    It really depends on what type of work you are doing and what lenses you currently have. I do prefer my 5d for a lot of my portrait and wedding work because of the full frame sensor and being able to work with my wide lenses. Let me know what you are shooting though and some more details.


  10. Hi Mark,

    In reference to my last comment of May 20 and your reply on May 21, Im doing mostly small, outdoor weddings using EF 24-105 f/4L IS USM lens. I’m wanting to upgrade to either the 5D or 7D. If it helps in giving your opinion, my work can be seen on my site http://www.keywestcasualweddings.com

    i’m wondering if the video capabilities will be able to be used in a small setting like I usually have as well.

    Thanks for your guidance,


  11. Hi Dan,

    Sorry this comment got by me and I didn’t see it earlier. For weddings I think it always beneficial to have a full frame sensor. That way for wide dramatic shots or group photos your 24 will really be a 24 instead of a 36. That difference can be huge lots of the time during a wedding when you need to work very fast. I also think the range of tones you get with a full frame sensor of the 5d for portrait work is just beautiful. It really is my favorite body for wedding work.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.
