    another question i wanted to ask

    where can i find a list of all the photoshop versions for both mac and pc?
    or can someone tell me? was 7 the last mac version before CS?

    if so, are they significantlly different?

    Just save it in whatever format. Actually it should be okay to open now.
    The lower version will open it but leave out any version specific
    features that appear in 7 but not in 6. If it's a tiff make sure layers
    are enabled in 6. Don't forget to append the correct file extension on
    the end.

    About a year ago, someone in this (or maybe the alt...PS group) NG did a list
    of all of the various versions of PS for both PC & MAC with their "main"
    features. I do not think that the link they provided was an official Adobe
    site, but a Google.Groups search of these two NG's ought to find this list.
    IIRC, the first release was about 0.8, or 0.9 for MAC, with PC support coming
    onboard about 1.x.

    The first Windows release was 2.5.

    Thanks. While I recall the list of versions, my memory is growing more feeble
    with each passing year.
