Photoshop can be mighty intimidating when you're 
just starting out.  Lots of us have been there.

No doubt several other competent packages can 
accomplish the same results, and almost always 
for less $$ than Adobe's latest.

The one BIG advantage with PS is that it's the 
program that sets the standard, and the terminology, 
for the rest of the pack.

One option you might consider is a pre-owned copy 
of an older PS version (say 4.x or 5.x) on eBay, 
which can be had for far, far less $$$ than the 
retail cost of PS 6.

FWIW -- and this is a minority opinion, for sure -- 
you can do just fine without all the ICC color 
management stuff.  I still do nearly all of my work 
in PS 4.
