Default Photoshop Elements

I have the 3rd iteration of photo shop. About 6 months ago, I purchased a Sony 200 and have been having a ball teaching myself photography in the digital age. Should I upgrade my program? I know Adobe just released version 8.

Actually, their up to version 11, it's called CS4. They changes their nomenclature with PS 7, from then on it's now "CS"

I recently purchased the Sigma DP-2, and you need Photoshop 10 (CS3) to work directly on the images. But Adobe also makes available a program which converts RAW files into their own format, called DNG. So, I happily work with my existing CS2. As far as I know, you will not be able to directly work in RAW images without at LEAST CS1. But you might want to try a cheaper program, such as GIMP, (which is a free program) which will allow the loading of RAW formats with their optional (but also free) plugins.

In other words, yes, your program is obsolete, but no, you don't have to get a new version of PS.
