    cs4 or cs5, cs5 is better than cs4 but cs4 can do most of what cs5 can do.

    The one you can afford to buy with whatever budget you have. Unless you are prepared to become a criminal by using "peer to peer" file stealing sites or networks.

    Why not look at the Open Source community offerings such as Inkscape

    Inkscape isn't an alternative to Photoshop. Now Illustrator, on the other hand...

    Photoshop CS4 is perfectly adequate. The only thing CS5 has that CS4 doesn't (that I'm aware of) is content aware, which wasn't very well implemented any way.

    CS6. $50/month get you the entire creative suite. not just photoshop. well worth it I think.

    and that gets you a licence for two computers...

    and in any case you should be using fireworks for that kind of thing.

    Very true but for
    a true vector editor is the tool to be using rather a image editor with some vector tools bolted on.

    indeed you should get the latest one.
    ...and content aware works pretty good in cs6 now.

    Why not go for the latest. The tutorials out there should *all* still be fairly easy to follow as little changes in the UI, per release.

    It would be preferred to use the newest version of photo shop, as it will have better settings and more opportunities to edit

    actually there was cs5.5 and now cs6.
    I would suggest that learning cs first is just stupid.

    Currently I’m using cs5 but I have experience in cs4 also you can choose either cs4 or cs5 for your works both working great.

    Please explain why.

    "best" is a subject term, what you find "best" may not suit anyone else.
