Quick question about applying for jobs

If you meet most but not all of the requirements for a job, do you still apply? I saw a job that I'm very interested in and I meet most of the requirements, but they want someone who has some light design experience. They are looking for someone with Adobe Creative Suite 5 experience. I know some of those programs (Photoshop, Acrobat) but not the rest. Should I go for it anyway or is it folly to even try?

ETA: Thanks everyone, for piling on the resounding "YES! OF COURSE! Dooo iitttt!" I think I probably just needed some encouragement after months of trying and not getting any bites.


Off to work on my cover letter...
