    I've got both these programs from work and just wondered which is the best to learn on in your opinion? I figured I can always upgrade once I have a vauge idea what I'm doing!

    To be honest either will get you going. Photoshop 5 is quite basic by these days standards but it will give you a chance to try out layers etc. But beware, the one you start on will bias you for the next upgrade. I used to use Photoshop 5 and from memory it is very similar in functionality to Photoshop Elements today, in fact Elements may have more!. But I do not think version 5 will support RAW files, so that may be an issue for you.

    I have PSP7 & 8 as well as Photoshop CS2 (talked my work into getting me it as they wanted to use some of my photos on their website!) and as strawman says, whichever one you learn on may bias you towards it (just shows that both can do the job!!). I find that apart from RAW support & batch processing, I do most of my work with PSP7 as I have used PSP from the earlier versions & am most comfortable with it. Probably means I'm just to lazy to put the time into learning Photoshop properly!

    Both will do the job, just for me PSP was more intuitive to learn.
