A user I am helping has Photoshop 12.0 x32 and wants to-- and is trying to-- load the 12.0 security update. The user goes to url Site: http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/security-update-photoshop.htm
but they only talk abot versions 12.0.1 & 12.0.5. They do NOT talk about either 12.0 x32 or 12.0 x64. Is that security update needed by this user?"
... but they only talk abot versions 12.0.1 & 12.0.5.
The page does not contain the specific term "12.0.1".
They do NOT talk about either 12.0 x32 or 12.0 x64. Is that security update needed by this user?"
For CS5, it says to apply the 12.0.5 update then "Verify that the version number on the startup screen shows 12.0.5 and not 12.0.0 for Photoshop CS5".
Yes, Photoshop 12.1 is Photoshop CS5.1, which is what I said is in the CS5.5 Suites.
12.1 is not 12.0.1.
People may write 12.5 by mistake. That doesn't make Photoshop CS5.5 exist!
I'll write it a third time: there is no Photoshop CS5.5.
…If there is a 12.0.1 then it is a CS5 version.
That is correct. 12.0.1 would be what you ended up with when you applied the very first update to Ps 12.0.0, which was what came initially labeled as "CS5". Once you applied all subsequent updates, you'd end up with 12.0.4.
The last version of Ps 13.x that shipped on DVD straight from Adobe is labeled CS 5.1, and it shows as version 12.1. I ordered mine at the very last minute, when it came with the promise (actually fulfilled) of a free CS6.
One little detail, though, since this thread has become all about numbers:
The last version of Ps 13.x that shipped on DVD straight from Adobe is labeled CS 5.1, and it shows as version 12.1.
You meant to write "The last version of Ps 12.x..."

…You meant to write "The last version of Ps 12.x..."
Yes, thank you for catching that typo. I hit the wrong key.
It should read:
The last version of Ps 12.x that shipped on DVD straight from Adobe is labeled CS 5.1, and it shows as version 12.1.
Adobe has practically guaranteed there will be massive confusion regarding version numbers by their mindless nomenclature of the totally artificial "suite" concepts.
When they reference "Photoshop 5.5" they really mean Photoshop CS 5.1 which is what ships in the Creative Suite 5.5.
If there be such a place as he!!, there ought to be a special place reserved for Adobe bureaucrats.

Yes, to us hard core responders, where words mean everything, we think of Photoshop 5 or PS6 as just that, and not to be confused by CS5 or CS6.
Yes, and hard core responders should not be mistakenly writing about a non-existent Photoshop CS5.5 when they mean Photoshop CS5.1.
