    I currently have digital Image Suite and paint shop pro- but if I am trying to edit some photos to the highest quality- would Photoshop be worth it?

    TIA!!

    If you have to ask this question, then you are probably not ready to use it. Try photoshop elements. It has alot of features of the full version, without the pricetag, and it will probably be more than enough for you.

    I agree with Matt. Elements will do just about anything that the full Photoshop can do for photos.

    Also, there are (legal) ways to get Photoshop cheaper than the usual price. If you are a student, you could buy the student version. Or the student version of an older version, then the full version upgrade. If you're not a student, then maybe you can get an older versions and the upgrade for less than a full version of the latest (CS3).

    Also, there are plenty of products that include some sort of discount on Photoshop. Ironically, I think that if you buy Elements, you can get a big discount on Photoshop. I recently bought a Wacom Tablet and when I registered it, I became eligible for a 50% discount on Photoshop.

    Excuse the curiosity on this one (and slight topic diversion), but which model did you get?

    I cant live without photoshop but I use it much more than just photos, I also make graphics posters with it, website layouts, I even made specail effect for video projects and animation file with it. Its a very powerfull tool to make whatever you dream come true.
