Re: OT: Photoshop CS4 upgrade overpriced

I think one of the major values of one of the upgrades was the ability to perform more functions in 16 bit.

I'm one of those that gets each upgrade, though sometimes they are disappointing.  I was not that interested in all the web stuff they included.  On the other hand, considering the investment in everything else around here which centers on using Photoshop, it is a great program and a pleasure to use.

Besides, how could I do without the next version of the Wind Filter, with settings like Breaking Wind, Mild Breeze, Gale Force, Hurricane, Midwestern Cat 5 Tornado.....

I'm still using CS, and find I can do everything I want, espcially since
the look and feel I'm after and "alterations" I'm looking for are with my
printing process, not in the computer. More power to those who find the
updates of use, but I wonder sometimes if upgrading Photoshop is like
comparing pixel counts or computer speed--it doesn't make us better artist.

Not considering the cost, I'm also suspect since the updates seem to come
much more frequently, more than I think is really necessary.
