CS2 has not qualified for upgrades for several years.
And even CS5 is too old to upgrade now.

The current versions are Photoshop CS6 (version 13.x) perpetual license, and Photoshop CC 2015 subscription license (version 16.x).

I want to be able to pull images from videos to make still images.
Do I need a video editing software or can I pause video and capture and image to edit? Do I need Photoshop Extended version of software or will Premium version work?

The link I posted above for Photoshop CC lets you import video and make stills.

This is very interesting I am concerned with working from the cloud. These questions may seem odd but I was wondering, If I work from the cloud but keep images on my hard drive. Can my images be subject to public use? Can the cloud allow personal files or designs to be taken or viewed creating a public use to them? Such as Facebook is a public domain and you can use anything you can copy and paste. How safe are my personal designs?

Photoshop still works the same way (locally) as it always has. Neither the app nor your files are in the cloud. You can choose to store files in the cloud if you wish - but it is not required.

So if I order Photoshop CS6 and I am a designer, painter, and want video edit capabilities. I can pay monthly for just this software or what programs are included?
Such as Adobe Illustrator? Or do you pay a different monthly premium depending on the software package you request?
