Thanks guys! I think I download the trial version of Photoshop after the holidays and play with it a bit. I think it would be worth the money for me to pay for the Plus membership at least for the first year to the extra help. I've always wanted to learn to do the sigs.

Where do you get the backgrounds and such? They are called tubes? Are there sites you get them from? (be prepared for me to drive a couple of you nuts with questions. )

And I do believe that Photoshop in HTG's hands sounds dangerous.

Photoshop has a $20 rebate online thru March.
Thanks for the info. Photoshop is definitely on my wish list this year.

I have had the Corel suite, which has a "PhotoShop" analog, and have various Adobe "Elements" apps as well. While I'm not a graphics professional, I have extensive experience in concept and presentation development and delivery from decades in the corporate rat race.

That said, most of us have two very valuable applications on our PCs - PaintBrush and PowerPoint that have tools to do fairly sophisticated stuff. I have run into only a few situations that I had to go outside those two, and those were due to the limitations of vendors that "just had to" have PSDs to work with.

I do custom McFarlanes as a hobby. I do all the graphics in those two apps. They're relatively easy to use, have lots of good tools, and are probably within your reach.

Before investing in another app, try these to get a feel for graphics and see if you really need to buy more stuff.
