"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The extended editions have additional 3D tools that help you to make extrusions of 2D objects and simple animations. If you only intend to use PS for graphic design and digital image editing I would suggest the standard edition only.

Good luck!

The extended version has some advanced tools. I would recommend going for the lower cost version until you know more about what the differences are you probably wont need the high priced version.

If you are a student (or teacher) wanting to take advantage of the VERY generous academic discount, be aware that Adobe ONLY offers the discount on the extended edition.

This is great until time to upgrade. The upgrade for CS5-extended is $349 a pop, while upgrading regular CS5 is $199. There is no academic discount for upgrades.

Here is an overview of the Features that are in the Extended version that are not in the regular version of PhotoShop...
