Which Version of Photoshop to Use?
can somebody tell me which version of adobe photo shop to use. I am writing this for my dad. he purchased element 7 and we can not figure how to get the right pattern. i tried to use the pencil drawing and the stamp setting adjusting it but get poor results. i found a 5.0 program and i was wondering if it would be better

I'm just bumping your post. I haven't used the software, so I can't answer. Hoping someone else can lend a hand.
BTW, you may want to post your question in the last forum in the pattern section. Better chances there that the right person will come along with the answer.
Hope this helps, a bit.
Edit: It's the Scroll Saw Design Tutorials forum. And, while you're there take a look at the older threads. Your question may have aleady been discussed. Even if it hasen't, bet you'll pick up a few additional tips along the way.
Edit: Opps! Just saw your post in the other forum. Glad you found it.

Any version of Photoshop should work for pattern making. If you're looking for a program you can just click and let it create a good pattern for you, they'll all fall short though. It takes a lot of user input, filling in missing details, analyzing missing stuff, getting rid of noise ... depending on the original picture, it can be a long drawn out ordeal. ("drawn out" pun intended). LOL
Here's a link to a tutorial on my site. It was created with Elements 2.0 I think, been a while, but it might help you out.

I use PSE6 now and I thought that PSE4 was easier to use. One of the reasons I haven't leaped at the opportunity to upgrade to PSE7. Seems to be a trend with PSE. Anyway, any of the PSE should be adequate but none of them is going to produce a pattern with little effort. Travis over at Scroll Saw Village has a tutorial using PS that is adaptable to PSE that you might want to view.
If all the world is a stage, where does the audience sit?
