    I have been using this program a long long time now. I have been using it since, hmm Adobe Photoshop 5.0. I'm using Adobe Photoshop 7.0 right now, and I was searching around for adobe things. I noticed Adobe Photoshop 8.0 CS. Is this the next version of Photoshop 7.0, or is that atotally different setup?

    Is there such thing as CS 8.0, I seen this on another forum. I'm assuming the person just said that, so it's accually just called CS?

    I always thought CS was a choped up version, smaller, less complicated version of Photoshop. I guess I was wrong.

    Yeah, it's the latest. Photoshop 8.0 = Photoshop CS. Photoshop 9.0 = Photoshop CS 2. So CS 2 would be the latest :)

    The "chopped up, smaller, less complicated" version would be Photoshop Elements.

    Edit: Damn it, vertigo beat me again :p

    Alright, I hate when programs start to have so many different versions and numbers. I get so lost, thanks for the info.

    One of my favourite programs, plus the fact that I'm becoming a graphic designer soon. Yeah Yeah!!

    Thanks once again.

    Since were talking about photoshop, I have a bunch of filters, 8bf files. I double click them and it opens up photoshop, I don't notice anything else. How do I install these?

    Nevermind, I used my head and figured it out.

    Ok, lol another question, I thought this one through, i dont know the answer this time. Can you have 2 different versions installed on one computer. Lets say I have Photoshop 7.0, can I install Photoshop CS2 without uninstalling 7.0?

    Not sure. If you start the installation to CS2, I think it asks you if you want to upgrade.

    There might be an option to select no. Theoretically, if you install CS2 in a different folder from 7.0, it should work. But I am just making a educated guess here.

    Just so you know, Bman, CS2 is a great. I am very happy with it and it was well worth the $150 upgrade price (from 7.0).

    I was just wondering all this cause my father just bought this bundle thing, not sure what it was. It had CS2 in it, and he knew I used Photoshop, but I didn't exatcly know what CS2 was at the time.

    I am also very happy with the upgrade!

    The Creative Suite package? Adobe Bridge is a welcomed edition to Photoshop/Creative Suite package.

    its an advanced photo manager, much like google's 'picasa'. you can view images, do other stuff (i don't use it often) & launch other adobe apps from it :)

    Vertigo summed it up. It is a resource hog so make sure you have plenty of RAM. But very powerful. I love the batch rename tool.
