PHOTOSHOP QUESTION, please help!

(sorry to post in more than one forum. need a quick answer. thanks for understanding!)

I have CS5 and a Macintosh and I am SO LOST! Need to purchase a guidebook, a la 'for Dummies', but I don't know which to get. There's several that sound right, but I can't tell, and I want to choose the best (easiest) one.

Is Photoshop 5 the same as CS5?

Titles I've found:

"Photoshop 5 for Macs for Dummies"
"Photoshop CS5 for Dummies"



Any help would be appreciated. Merci beaucoup!

1. No, they aren't the same.

Photoshop 5 is an old program. The oldest I've ever had was Photoshop 6. Photoshop 5 was released in 1998, CS5 in 2010.

2. Ask your question in the photography group

and you will probably get a better answer.

That said, as pointed out, "Photoshop 5" and "photoshop cs5" are two different things.
