    Is Photoshop CS5 worth getting?

    Hi, I've been using Photoshop CS3 for a while now, I have tons of custom brushes (which sadly can go to waste if I replace my Photoshop by CS5).

    The reason I'm making this thread is because I've seen other people with Photoshop CS5, and it has many functions that mine doesnt, for example: being able to rotate the entire canvas easly, the lines are WAY smoother and some of the brushes look more... I dont know, realistic, I've seen paintings and drawings by other people with "default" brushes that I know that simply couldnt exist in my version.

    I have programs for Inging (Paint Tool Sai) and for painting (Photoshop CS3), but If I got CS5 maybe it could be both?


    I dont know, if there is someone here who has tried both versions then please tell me if it's worth to move from one to another, or the changes between the program are not worth considering what is required to attain it.

    hi dude

    actually they are selling photoshop cs6 (wich wasn't convincing for me)

    for photoshop cs5: when i switched i remember , it was faster than earlier version (cs4)

    the rotate canvas is very handy (also scrub zoom, wich is more cool than useful)

    the mixer brushes are a feature that you might like but also there are brushes that mimic real pen (with tilt and 3D preview of the pen)

    you won't loose your CS3 brushes, they all work fine in newer version.

    for the inking nothing changed dude, Sai is still an awesome tool to ink.

    there is the puppet warp tool wich is a powerful tool to mesh warp your drawings

    if i had to choose i would work with cs5 rather than cs3 but it's not absolutely necessary

    Okay! Thanks for clearing that up!

    Actually rather than CS5, I think CS6 has even better major changes. I used CS3 before upgrading to CS6. Then one day my life, eh, file was saved by CS6 because of its auto-recovery feature. So if you are considering to upgrade, I'll suggest CS6 over CS5 anytime. :p

    (But yes, SAI is still better than PS for inking...)

    You could always download the trail version of CS6 from Adobe, play with it for 30 days, and see for yourself.
