Default I'm getting CS4 today!!!!

Woot!!! I'm finally getting Photoshop! I've been using GIMP for years now. It's worked pretty good but I finally decided that I need to get an actual Adobe program. I know there are tons but which book, tutorial program, etc. should I get to help me learn the fastest?

Default Nice...

Did you get it at a good deal? I have an old version of Photoshop 7 that I am still using, and was considering upgrading to the newer CS, but it is pricey. Does the new CS4 come with just the photoshop or other apps?

Default I hope you have fast PC with a relatively new graphics card

CS4 needs a lot more horsepower than the CS3 but it's very nice.

Default Good point.

I didn't think about all that. I'll have to look and see what the requirements are.

Default Yup. The CS4 is different from older versions...

because it uses graphics cards for some of the drawing functions. So if you have an old computer and a graphics card that's not supported, the CS4 can be very slow. If you have a relatively new rig, it's great!<ul><li><a href="http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=kb405445#h3">Supported video cards here</a></li></ul>

Default :) I had to. My 5-year-old PC was barely usable.

It was the fastest thing on earth when I bought it but now it's too slow for the CS4. Had no problems with the CS3 though.
