After looking at Imbrog|io's wonderful rendition of Kofi ANinja, I am impressed and shamed at my own previous attempts. I want to join the world of 'professional' mall ninja photo altering, so I can get all the womenz like Imbrog|io. I downloaded the trial version of 6.0 and after screwing around for a couple hours and finally getting a satisfactory mall ninja photo, I realize I could not save the pic!!! Anyway, I don't need anything fancy, just something better than the crappy MS Paint program I have been using. I want something cheap, or even better yet, a free download!

If you would consider Linux, Gimp is available for free. A little harder to use, but some greate features.

Corel PhotoPaint is a terrific program also. Ive used it exclusively for about 7 years now.(through several versions of course) I like it much more than Photoshop. You can get it as a stand alone for about $90 or as part of the CorelDraw Suite for $299-$500. You can also download the trial version for CorelDraw Suite 10 at the Corel website. its extremely large though. 270MB!! www.corel.com

Rusty, that is why I really do not think Linux will ever really catch on. It is too difficult for the average Joe to work with. Aviator [img]www.dredgeearthfirst.com/aviator.gif[/img]

I have Photoshop at work and Paint Shop Pro at home and frankly prefer Paint Shop Pro. Also, the browse feature of PSP is great for perusing the collection of *ahem* "fine art". [:P] I had an old version of Corel a while back and didn't care much for it. Quite the memory hog, though I imagine that may have improved by now.

Ive never had any problems with corel being a memory hog, unless i just never noticed. I have a lot of memory anyhow (320MB) just because of my graphics work. I do a LOT of photo work and general DTP work. I may be partial to Corel because thats what i "grew up" on, but I had to use Photoshop at a former employers and absolutly hated it. Ended up doing all of my best work at home. I do agree that PSP is a great program though. The browse feature is very handy. I too have the trial version that i play with once in a while.
