do I need back up my third Apps?

hi all, i have 13" retina display.
and I really want to upgrade OS MAVERIKS, but I'm afraid that upgrading OS will delete my third apps such as: Adobe CS 6, Final Cut Pro, Microsoft Office etc.
and will upgrading erase my photos and download file?

    It's always recommended to backup your Mac always. Upgrading your OS will not delete any data, including apps, files and settings.
