Re: [webdesign-390] Graphics program recommendations

While The GIMP is good, many people feel it lags behind photoshop in 
ease of use.  If you are not familiar with graphics programs, it might 
not be a simple choice.

I'd suggest Paint Shop Pro.  It's now a professional level tool, and 
incorporated functions of both photoshop and illustrator (as of version 
8, they are now up to 11).  It's $70.


I happily used it to build graphics for websites for years, until I had 
to use photoshop for a project.  I still use version 8 for some mockups 
since it manages some things better than photoshop cs2.

Another handy tool for management and displaying images is Irfanview. 
It's fast, great and an excellent compliment to graphics editors.  It's 
also free, which is also nice.
