I keep seeing it more and more. People saying "I used CS5 or CS6 etc to edit this photo". CS6 is Adobe Creative Suite 6, it's a Software Suite of applications that includes Photoshop. I very much doubt someone is using InDesign, or Illustrator, or Dreamweaver to edit their photo's, so they potentially miss-leading an unknowing user instead of saying they used Photoshop.

Stating it wrong 'could' end up with an unknowing user purchasing the entire suite when they could only need Photoshop for their image editing needs. And that's only if you're really digging into changing something about a photo. In most cases LR4 can do 90% or more of most people's photo tweaking needs.

End of request.

Actually they're correct. The have Adobe Photoshop versions CS5 and CS6 Adobe Photoshop is the latest version. Creative Suite is all of the versions. Each Adobe software (that they are) can be sold individually, under their title name with the latest "CS" version. There's also Creative Cloud. That's the online version that gives you access to all of them. That's what I use.
