I just started to have Photoshop 7 and I am trying to get a hang of it. I can’t find the retouch button though and I want to know how I can do some cool stuff with it.

Do you guys have any tips for me please?

The main retouching tool is the Healing Brush: forth box down, left column in the tool palette (it looks like a plaster). If it appears to be a patch instead, click/hold and select the plaster icon. Adjust the brush size to suit the feature you want to remove, then place the cursor on an area near the feature that is similar in texture. Alt/click to select that as your source. Go to the blemish, and click or click/hold/move to cover it. The repair should blend in with the background.

Question: How much does Photoshop 6 cost and what about Photoshop 7?
What's the big difference?
What computer do I need?

If you buy it from the Adobe webshop, it's $649 for a full version of Photoshop CS (aka Photoshop 8) whereas an upgrade is $169. I couldn't find older versions, but they're probably still available in most computer stores. I've primarily used version 7, so I don't know exactly how much versions 6 and 8 differ from it.

Adobe recommends a Pentium III and 256 MB or better. I suggest doubling or quadrupling that amount of RAM if you want to work with large images.

To add to that: I’ve only used Elements and then 7, but as far as I know the main changes from 6 (from a photographic point of view) were:
Support for OS X and XP
File Browser
Healing brush and Patch tool
Auto colour adjustment
As for memory, in addition to what’s used by the system and program, you want about 3-5 times the size of the image you’re working on. That’s for a ‘flat’ image: add layers and the RAM requirements get worse. You also need an equivalent or greater amount of free disk space on your allocated scratch disk. For large image files (like 50+ MB TIFFs) this would ideally be a separate physical drive, not a partition, and 2 GB in size.
