I currently use Photoshop 7 for Windows and Photoshop 7 for my mac, as well. Most of what I use them for are web designs - i.e. the logo for DaniWeb, some designs for other websites, etc. I've actually never tried CS so I can't compare myself. So now my question: Is it worth it for me to upgrade to CS?

The only thing that has affected me is the save / open new hot keys, now it is ctrl shift s to save as and now pressing alt, then f, then s goes to open as.

Here is a list of new features though.

If you ask me, it's worth the upgrade for Layer Comps alone.
This is a great way to have multiple versions of a file for client approval.

I agree with Kezz the upgrade is worth it, but if you dont work heavily with images and Photoshop 7 serves you right, then you may want to spend you money in something that you might use to improve the quality of the image you start with. A scanner upgrade or a new Digital Camera.
