    You're an artist, Uber, shut up.

    I haven't touched Photoshop since Version 5.5, and that was only casual. I just didn't get how to use it. Too much of a learning curve that I was too impatient with.

    If I were going to manipulate a photo, I'd much rather direct someone else to do it.
    Good point. But then I'd have to pay them, and I'd much rather do it myself - being a poor teacher 'n' all.

    Hey, wow, ber, you have some really neat art work! Did you study art, or is it just a hobby?

    hmm... yes I think finding a moderately priced software( Photoshop Elements apparently) would be your best bet. There are routes you could take to download those softwares with code generators but it is quite complex at least to explain(I'd need to get my S on and just do it myself, hard to explain).

    It seems like you want to sort of build up at your own pace till you gain proficiency or at least are able to express yourself as you see fit so I would think it wise to invest in or at least research more robust software than most of the Freeware offered.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Not necessarily.

    You can always threaten them with something and then they'll do it for free!

    Hey, that's great!

    Just out of curiosity, what does CS3/4 have that photoshop elements does not? If it is nothing that is all that great, then I think the elements would be good.

    I did my research, but I honestly don't know if I need everything CS3/4 has to offer. I'm thinking no....

    (But don't actually act upon that, because it's not nice to hurt dogs.)
    Hahaha - I guess you think it's important to put that little caveat in there because I'm an ENFP, right?

    So with elements I could change the background (i.e. perform layering techniques)? Right? Or correct subtle errors?

    Absolutely. Elements is basically Photoshop for "normal people". It supports layers, although the pro features of Photoshop are not included in Elements. Honestly, I have Photoshop CS2, and while I enjoy many of the features, there are a good deal of them that I have not explored and I still can do anything I have wanted to do. Elements is a very good value.

    I have Paint Shop Pro 9, couple years old, and I'm no pro so it does everything I'd ever want with photos. I think you can get that for Mac (Though a newer version, and I don't know how different). Would probably be cheaper than $100.

    Hey, cool, thanks I'll have a peak at it!
