    I'm considering buying Photoshop, but I would like to know what version is the best for the money I might be paying. I'm a web site designer, and after several years of working with Paint, I think I'm gonna need something else. I really just need a version which can dish out anything I would ever need for a web site. Could you please also tell me what's new between versions? Thank you.

    Photoshop is a great app I use it but you may want to consider another program Paint Shop Pro. It does not do everything that PS does but 90% of it at a lot cheaper price...

    Photoshop 7 should do just about everything you need, CS is the latest version and is fine as well.
    An open-source alternative to Photoshop is The Gimp

    Thats a great program, I use that a lot to make picture files smaller.
