CS5 is it - no CS12 miscommunication
Ummmm CS stands for Creative Suite not Photoshop. It's the 5th version of Creative Suite, there haven't been 12 lol
Yes it's the 12th version of Photoshop, but people just shorten Photoshop CS5 (which is only part of the Creative Suite) down to CS5 because it's the most used part. So not a miscommunication, just a misunderstanding it would seem.
That's right, CS5 means the 5th version of Creative Suite, and just like Phoetoshop CS5 is the official name of Photoshop 12, there is no CS12. and I think CS12 you need to wait about one decade.
Thanks for the responses. CS5 is up and running on the new Imac and the wife is loving it - she was using CS2 I believe. Excellent upgrade from the old G5 machine my wife used for her business. Wireless is much faster with new extreme router also.

Also CS5 has improved quite a bit over CS4 ... InDesign is awesome
Photoshop has by far the best improvements. I'm a graphic designer, and I stay as far away from inDesign as possible. Add pages layouts to illustrator, BOOM no more inDesign. I guess people who enjoy setting up booklets or brochures may like inDesign, but it just seems like more of a publisher's work tool, not a designers.
I use Indesign CS4 quite a bit, what does CS5 have that is worth it?

It's some decent improvements. As I've said though, the photoshop improvements are COMPLETELY worth it. Content-aware fill. Puppet warp....truly amazing features.
I work in the printing industry so basically I take Photoshop and Illustrator files and do the final design in Indesign ... If working on single files I then just use Photoshop and Illustrator.
Yeah, i'm forced to work in inDesign occasionally. I love the text box features they make a lot of things easier, it just seems like it's not too far off from illustrator, I just don't get why they don't combine them like they did with Photoshop and ImageReady. Oh wait, they want more money...i forgot
It's not about money because they're aimed at and suited for completely different tasks. I can't set up a style sheet in Illustrator, work well with master pages or collect fonts... can't mess around with pattern brushes in InDesign. Having been professionally taught by someone who's on the Adobe Illustrator team, although it's my weakest app, once you see the pasteboard through their eyes, then you never quite see it the same way again.
InDesign is a space to composite and create. Rarely using Illustrator or Photoshop alone for single files, almost everything I do has some type in it and that's what InDesign is for, bundling all links and fonts in a package for archiving at the end.
+1 ... Well said ... InDesign rules just for setting up Master pages alone.
