I have Adobe Photoshop CS3 Creative Design Premium and can't decide if I should upgrade to CS4. It seems to me that Adobe's asking price of $600 for an upgrade is "over the top."
Photoshop's pricing has been over the top ever since it was introduced, IMO, which is made all the worse by what I have found to be the worst customer "support" I have ever experienced.

Perhaps it is time to switch to the GIMP. It's free.

Best regards,
