Looking for a graphics program?

Check out these free trial versions for three of the mainstream graphics programs avaliable.

Adobe Photoshop CS
Photoshop is the most powerful of the three, but it will take a lot of time and patience to master it. It is also the most expensive of the three, and will cost close to $800 USD. There are some great advantages to using PS. For one, there are thousands of Photochop resources out on the web, and the user base is both intelligent and helpful.

Jasc Paint Shop Pro 9
Paint Shop Pro is like Photoshops younger brother. It costs about $700 USD less, and while it is simple to use initially, there are some amazing things that can be done with it. One of the compromises that is made in making this program easy to use is power. Some things just can't be done in PSP, or they can't be done as easily. That being said, there is no shame in using Paint Shop Pro; for what you will be most likely doing, it won't matter.


Macromedia Fireworks MX
Fireworks is the most basic of the three programs listed, but it is basic for a reason. Firworks is generally used to develop graphics used in webpage design. Now think about it, do most websites have tech borders, or abstract backgrounds with some images blended in? Not usually. Most web graphics are less than 500 x 500 in dimension, and aren't very flashy. If web design is your game, Fireworks is for you.

Hopefully that will help your decision on which program to LEGALLY purchase. If any discussion about filesharing takes place, you will be warned. Is that simple enough for you?

On a closing note, I would also like to mention the GIMP, which is a free, fully featured graphics application. It is, however, very complex, so I wouldn't reccomend it for anyone who is new to designing graphics.

No, but the ultra-awesome mod squad will nab you right now with a warning. You're flirting with bannination again, Captain. I would memorize the board rules if I were you.

Any slight mishap will get your ass banned. Im fed up.
