Another big PS user here. Not for typical "Photoshopping" or even graphics adjustment - I often use it for pixel by pixel updates to icons, I have a series of actions set up so I can quickly make adjustments to highlighted areas on a black/white screen capture. It is my graphic editor of choice.

I'll also have no problem continuing to use the Photoshop version that came with the last TCS version... I don't need the new bells & whistles that they add to newer versions, I just need the basics that have been with Photoshop since back with version 3.0. Am I upset it's no longer in the TCS? A bit. But I'll get by just fine with my current version.
