Hello,

I'm new here. I want to start my carrier as a graphic designer. So that's why I want to buy any editing software that helps me in making high-quality graphics, images, logos, etc. 

So please recommend to me which version is best as a graphic designer and also guide me on how to use photoshop or stuff like that.

Thanks

That seems like a bit of a vague request. 

 

As this is a Photoshop Forum the regulars naturally are using Photoshop for image editing, which does not mean there aren’t other image editing applications – but they are not the focus here. 

And when it comes to graphic design and logos Photoshop is generally not the application of choice while, depending on the task, Indesign and Illustrator (or their competitors) offer advantages, particularly with regard to multi-page layouts and vector output. 

 

You might want to look up introductory courses to graphic design, either in-person or online.

The tools for a graphic designer are Illustrator and InDesign. Not Photoshop.

Some (rudimentary) Photoshop knowledge would probably be expected by most potential employers in the field, though.

Yes, absolutely. But the OP seems to think that designers generally and principally use Photoshop, which they don't.

 

Where I work we have a graphic designer and a photographer (yours truly). She spends most of her time in InDesign and some Illustrator. She has Photoshop and knows her way around it, but usually sends any PS work over to me.

If you buy these high end professional apps - expect to need professional training. They aren't designed to help you or lead you through the process.
