    You can download a free trial of the program. You'll be able to use it for 30 days or so, then decide if you want to buy it.

    Download Adobe PhotoShop CS3 10 Free Trial

Elements is a very good value.

    Hey, thanks a lot guys. I will have a lot of possibilities. Perhaps I can try it out and see what happens. If I like it, I can look into it. If not, I can check out PSP.

    Jack, do you know if there is a trial for PSP as well?

    Hey, Linguist, if you want a free, like totally free program with no "evaluation period" (they are annoying), you should try Gimp. It can do most of the stuff photoshop and paint shop can and it is definitely enough for your needs. I can give you some advice on it if you want to. I've done loads of digiart with it.

    Just to throw in my $.02

    First, what kind of teacher are you? Are you employed by a school? If so, you probably qualify for the discounted educational Photoshop price.

    I would recommend Photoshop Elements. Like FM said, it has all the features you'd likely ever use in Photoshop. I use the full Photoshop on my desktop machine. Photoshop Elements came pre-installed on my laptop, and for most of what I end up doing with it, I didn't even bother installing the full Photoshop since Elements handled it.

    I think PSP is a little cheaper than Elements, but Elements is worth the difference in price, from my experience.

    Gimp is free, and very powerful, but the interface is awkward and clunky. If you're not a tech geek who likes to spend time messing with computery things, I wouldn't recommend it. You'll spend a lot of time trying to figure it out.
    I'm not a procrastinator. I'm a long-term planner.

    Well, there is the GimpShop which is a photoshop looking Gimp. And I didn't find it too hard. If that would make me a geek, I'd be rich.

    At least it is easier to learn Gimp than get the money for photoshop.

    I have CS3. Great program, never used elements so I cant compare them, but if you're look to change the skies in your photo, or change backgrounds, with CS3 it can be done in literally probably 30 seconds and look good too(if done right).

    Like what Martoon said, if you're in school, you can get the "Academic version" aka same thing as the regular but for student pricing. CS3 is $299USD. And comes with free upgrade to CS4
    Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended w/FREE upgrade to CS4 - WIN with Academic Discount at JourneyEd.com

    But you can't just get the program and do it miraculously after installation. It takes a lil time to understand how all the tools work and stuff. Good luck.

    There is a "way" to get photoshop....*cough* piracy *cough*....bad cold I seem to have.

    Photoshop is NOT easy to learn though, I personally use an old version of Macromedia Fireworks and GIMP instead of Photoshop usually.

    Photoshop rocks, but you need a fuggin degree for it.

    I'm a bit on the idiot side of comps for now as well. I had a friend teach me some of photoshop in Iraq in my little spare time.. So I do know how to take a pic, edit out the background, and put it into another pic or background. I can do the lasso and delete tool and the smudge tool.

    We used it for a 300 parody of one of our squad leaders. ^_^ it rocked.
