    Photoshop

    I'm looking at purchasing Photoshop, but don't know enough about the different versions. A majority of my pictures are outdoors, but would like to start my own studio in the future also. Don't know if that makes a difference?

    Any advice? Anyone want to sell me theirs?

    Re: Photoshop

    Before you buy Photoshop, you might want to try GIMP...it's free.

    GIMP - The GNU Image Manipulation Program

    GIMP - Downloads

    Re: Photoshop

    I've got gimp, but it is a little difficult to manipulate, and pretty complicated.

    Re: Photoshop

    GIMP is great for n00bs, but if you are eventually going to start your own studio, you're going to have to bite the bullet and learn Photoshop. The good news is, once you do start down that path, I guarantee it will be worth it.

    Check out adobe.com > PhotoshopCS3

    Grab a book and start in chapter one, page one. Once you have the fundamentals down, look for online tutorials and blogs, they are going to be of tremendous help to you.

    You are also welcome to PM here on the site and I can point you in the right direction, if you have any hang-ups.

    Good luck! You are going to be in for an interesting and fruitful ride.

    Peace.

    Re: Photoshop

    If you can find an older version, buy it and the update to the latest version. The update works the same as the full version, and buying both is usually a lot cheaper than the full version.

    Re: Photoshop

    To answer your questions about different versions, check out this comparison between Photoshop CS3 and Photoshop Elements 6:
    LINK
    One of the major differences between the two is CMYK color mode (only available in Photoshop CS3) -- if that's important to you, it's a no-brainer.

    Re: Photoshop

    Anyone know the differences with Lightroom and CS3?

    I'm even thinking about splurging and getting both discounted.

    From Adobe's website:

    "Discover an efficient way to import, select, develop, and showcase large volumes of digital images. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom® is the perfect complement to Photoshop CS3.

    Ideal for:
    Professional photographers
    Serious amateur photographers"

    It's not a competitor of CS3, more of a partner... (Used for photo organization)

    Re: Photoshop

    Is it risky to buy Photoshop CS3 discounted on cheapsoftware.org?

    Correct. Lightroom is for processing raw images and much more. CS3 is for image manipulation. They two work together - many things each does the other can't do.

    Just picked up Photoshop CS3 on Amazon for $177 and I'm stoked.
