        Yeah, I'm saying I would pretty much never use PSP at all because Photoshop is over all a much better program.

            But paintshop is a good low end alternative, and much cheaper. I have not used it in years, but there's nothing wrong with using it. In design firms, you will exclusively use photoshop.

              I use PSP and I love it.
              It took me a while to get used to it, and I've heard Photoshop is much more complicated, so I don't even want to try

                I've used PSP for years. What makes me mad is Jasc changed the workings of version 8 when I was finally getting use to doing things in v7. Now I've had to relearn everything and I still can't do a lot of things because of it.

                I'm thinking of trying PS, but as of now have no real need to.

                  I started off with Paint Shop Pro 7 as well as getting a copy of Photoshop 7. I found PSP easier to use than PS at the time, because I knew a lot less about it than I do now. I moved up to PSP 8 and PS CS and used Photoshop CS heck of a lot more than I did Paint Shop Pro. Now I use Photoshop CS2 and haven't even installed PSP.
                  It's a good program to use, but I prefer using Photoshop now because I am used to it now and am learning more about it....

                    Not completely. Corel Draw and Fireworks are used quite a lot for general graphics, and Illustrator/Freehand for artwork and Quark/InDesign for multiple page spreads.

                      I said Design firms. I'll give you fireworks, I forgot that most exclusive web firms go for it, though I've never used one for print.

                      Corel Draw for Production shops -- however, I didn't think we were going to get into talking about vector or page layout programs, that's a separate discussion. I would never suggest one sole program for a designer, but for rasterized imaging, Photoshop is still king.

                        Illustrator too But you would never use PSP either way.

                          PSP is okay, it does its job but for any decent web graphics, I'd recommend Photoshop and Illustrator - great bits of kit

                            It does it's job for a good $400-$500 cheaper

                              Yeah - it's extremley cheap in comparision to Photoshop and you can create some fairly nice web graphics. However if I couldn't have Photoshop to hand I'd use Fireworks
