I am buying a Nikon D70 and would like to learn a bit about the post processing of RAW images (though there still seems to be a lot of debate about RAW versus JPEG). Nevertheless, I would like to give it a try and learn a few things about digital photo editing. I have NEVER done digital photo editing or worked with RAW files before.

So my questions are:

1. What is the main difference between Photoshop 7 and Photoshop CS?

2. Is PhotoShop or Photoshop CS the better choice for a beginner?

3. Should I consider using something else for RAW images and photoediting outside of Adobe products?



Thanks

Hi
Bibble is probably the best (and cheapest) raw converter see http://www.bibblelabs.com/ . This and Photoshop Elements 3 are probably all you will need to start with.

And Adobe often offers rebates if you own a version of Elements. So getting elements isn't a waste if you think you'll upgrade at a later date. Also, Element often comes with some hardware products as well. Like some printers and cameras. So you might be able to pick it up along with something else you'd like to have.
