    I can use older version of Photoshop well and now wondering if there is vast difference between the latest version and 3 years old version. I got a part time job offer for it. Can I go for it based on my old knowledge?

    I would think so, photoshop has stayed very much the same over the years so all the basic things should be the same, you might want to just watch some youtube tutorials or try it yourself just so you know what it is like now

    Normally you are fine, Photoshop didn't change that much in the past years. They just updated the interface styling a bit and added some nice to have features.

    Just have a look at the features list on the adobe site, and see if there are any new features that you might think will help you. If there isn't then stick with what you have.

    There is not really a difference but just the layout in my opinion.

    What a bunch of rubbish people are posting here.

    Photoshop has been updated a lot, and have a bunch of new and great features, not to mention that it runs a lot faster than older versions.
    The interface has pretty much stayed the same though (and you can choose to revert to the old interface, if you wish), so there shouldn't really be any issues with starting to use the new version (except learning the new features, of course).

    I have a really old version of Photoshop on my laptop, and I also have the newest one as well on my PC. If you are good with the old version, you'll be just as fine with the new one. Although I can pretty much do everything on the old one that I can with the new one (although sure there are a lot of new features the newest one provides).

    Don't they still have the 30 or 60 day trial? If not, not a great deal has changed in 3 years. If you were proficient, I expect the job will provide the new version and, in which case, you can learn the new features in an afternoon or less.

    I don't think it will take you more than 2 hours to figure out all the new Photoshop if you are already familiar with the older version of Photoshop. I would recommend you to go with the newer Photoshop versions as they can do much more great work in less sort of time with good effects.

    The old tools are same .. There have been new additions but if you're familiar with the older tools you will find them even in CS6 but with more functionalities. As i can say for my experience it takes a little to familiarize with the new stuff and it isn't that hard and of course the newer tools will give you better command over what you wish to achieve

    The tools are perfectly the same and still do the same functions. This is one of the finest things i have notices in the structure of the adobe products. They don't do a total revamp they just keep adding new features with time that suit up well even with the original design

    That would be no problem for you.. I've been using photoshop from Photoshop 6 to the latest cs6.
    There are not much different on interfaces. But I must say it easier and more fun with cs6 :D

    To a large extent you are missing the point.

    If I was your prospective employer I'd be wanting to know if you could do what I need you to do with PS.

    You need to find out what PS you would need to do.
