What software do you use for your photos?
I'm thinking about buying Photoshop...any version?
Photoshop is the king. But, it has a lot of features you will probably never use. I have used Photoshop since the first version came out. I was on the advisory staff for version 5. And there are still features I have never used.
You will probably be okay with a copy of Photshop LE or Elements unless you want to get into heavy image editing.
I agree with Chad. I also have Macromedia Fireworks and it doesn't compare to Photoshop.
Chad, what version of Photoshop Elements do you recommend? Should I pick up an older one on ebay or go with the current one (which is??)?
Thanks for your help. I'm currently using Microsoft Picture It Photo Premium 9 which, I think, came with my computer.
Guess a better camera wouldn't hurt either.
I'm not sure which is the current version of Elements. I know the current version of Photoshop is CS2 or version 9 (same thing). But, any of them will probably do what you need them to do.

Hi Kathy! I just wanted to let you know that I bought my brand new version of Paint Shop Pro 9 off of Ebay for $16.00. It is an unregistered copy. If you still haven't purchased it I'll be happy to look up the seller for you. I also referred two friends to him and they are as happy as I am.
Now I just need to learn how to use the program! LOL
Thanks, Dawn. If you have a minute and wouldn't mind looking up the ebay seller, I'd appreciate it.

Hi Kathy! :wave:
I looked up the seller and unfortunately he's no longer a registered user. But I did find an awesome auction! http://cgi.ebay.com/JASC-Paint-Shop-Pro-9-w-Animation-Shop-UNREGISTERED_W0QQitemZ7201436443QQcategoryZ86733QQ rdZ1QQcmdZViewItem It's the same thing that I have. There are 12 available and there are only 2 bidders so far. It ends in 10 hours. When you get it let me know if you need some tips using it! I'll show you what options I use on it. You'll really like it!
Thanks, Dawn. I'm constantly amazed at the kindness of people on this forum!
I'm leaning toward Photoshop but will let you know if I purchase the software you suggested.
Thanks again and have a great weekend.
I use Photoshop Elements 2 and it's perfect for what I do. No need to upgrade to the PS 3 as far as I'm concerned. :) I think maybe you can find it at a good price on ebay. I like it a lot better than PSP 8, easier to use on bead pictures (for me anyway), and I have both programs.
