CS5 can either be an upgrade if you already own an older version but it is also a fully functional program on its own. if you do not have any versions of Photoshop you would need to buy and install CS5. Then later on if another version comes out you then can upgrade to that version for cheaper.
PS 7 is one of the older versions of Photoshop, before Adobe's merger with Macromedia. Photoshop CS4 is the current version of Photoshop (soon to be replaced with CS5 this summer). While the two have the same developer and history, CS4 is a much more advanced version of the program. Tasks that required separate programs or plugins (mini-programs that you can buy that run within PS) with PS 7 are now standard in CS4.
