    Ok. All of these photoshop shenanigans make me want to play too. I went to Costco. They had Photo Explosion, Adobe Photoshop and Paint Pro with photoshop. Is there a consensus recommendation here as to the best software?

    There is also the recently released

    Adobe Photoshop CS

    which is an update to 7.0 CS stands for creative suite, they rebranded all their products as CS now.


    Though Spanky will tell you, you don't need photoshop if you got MS paint :p


    oh yeah, there is also Adobe Photoshop elements, basically a stripped down version of the real thing, it would most likely be totally fine for most photo editing, manipulating, placing Tyler hole's head on a donkey's body type work.

    Photoshop Elements.

    Id say its...70ish(?) percent of PS.7 for WAY less (I think its about 50 bux now).

    Actually, mine is an academic version my fiancee got from school. Perhaps your local library might have it to borrow?

    Adobe Photoshop 7.0. I'd pay for it if I was rich.

    If oyu are a student or teacher you can buy Photoshop CS for $250. 7.0 is no longer available new in most places.

    Paintshop Pro is almost as good, adnmuch more friendly to newbies. I use it a lot for photo editing and making desktop wallpapers for my Anime site. It is about $100 most places. Check it out.
     
  13. Second.

    Paint Shop Pro does everything that photoshop does, maybe not quite as good, but it costs a lot less and is tons easyer to use. I've used both, and PSP came out ahead.
