is it worth it to make the switch from PS7? What new features do you use the most?

It depends on what you need it for. I skipped PS7. I'm still using PS6, but I have recently ordered PS CS from Adobe (thanks to their $350 discount offer).

I'm mostly going to Photoshop CS for the extra RAW capabilities it has. I can shoot hundreds of NEF RAW files with my camera at the weekend, so being able to edit them more easily directly inside Photoshop, without having to go via NikonView, convert to TIF, then load them up in Photoshop and lose all the NEF RAW advantages is going to make life much easier :)

I also skipped v.7 and for the most part, everything I use Photoshop for can be accomplished using v.5

But since I aquired Adobe's Creative Suite, the feature that I mostly find convenient is integration; how Photoshop, Illustrator, GoLive, Acrobat, and InDesign work seamlessly with one another.

I used CS for the 30 day trial with the intent on upgrading after it was
over. However, I didn't find anything special or new either. It ran slower,
loaded slower, and hogged more resources than 7. The only feature I
liked was the addition of a fonts tab, where you can preview fonts a lot
easier. and some of the tool managers were much nicer, but overall it
was a bulkier product and I stayed on 7.

Yes, Illustrator is the best for vectors. Overall, I havn't really noticed many changes and advantages in CS. Just some fancy filters, which I never use...

Pros
- user interface been rearanged to be a bit more user friendly.
- heaps more font related features.
- cool integration between the other packages.
- better vector tools
- more photo colour/manip/correction stuff.

Cons
- bigger
- slower loading
- more system hungry

over all probably nothing that the average user to semi pro would need to upgrade for.

I agree absolutely. here are a few things i noted during todays class on photoshop CS (one more day to go) :)

it has a much better file browser, rotate images in file browser without opening it up
flag and/or rank files and sort by them in folders
set keywords on images and sort/search by them
set copyright & meta info on images
a great new shadow/highlight feature

there are not as many new features but existing ones are improved.

im still going to get the upgrades for all adobe products (indesign, illustrator & photoshop) already have adobe6.0 acrobat pro which rocks.
