Photoshop CS6 is as far back as you can go with a legal purchase.
Buying older copies on ebay or amazon marketplace will most likely just get you pirated software with malware included.

If you don't need all the latest features, 3D, CMYK editing, etc. -- then perhaps Photoshop Elements will do what you need, at a much lower price.

Elements 14 is the current version, with more features and more updates for recent OS support.

Howdy Rebecca,

I would totally agree with Chris -- Photoshop Elements is a much simpler application and far easier to learn.  I would recommend it for an older hobbiest.  There are MANY tutorials for it online.

Hope that helps,
David
