I own an ancient version of Photoshop (a.k.a. Photochop). The price of buying an upgrade is in-SANE, so I’ve never bothered.

To be honest, I haven’t really found a reason to. Until now:

Content-aware fill

Everyone’s seen the video, haven\’t they? Say no more. *swoon*

Rule of thirds-grid while cropping

I noticed this when watching the content-aware fill video. Be still my beating heart! I always struggle with the rule of thirds and need all the help I can get. I tried replicating this with my current install, but failed.

There are actually a bunch of other reasons I\’d be willing to pay the exorbitant amount; this article over at Web Designer Depot covers most of it.

But, I only want Photoshop CS5, I don\’t need a whole suite. Will I be able to only buy CS5?
