Currently E3. I have a more current version (CS4 or CS5, can't recall which; I think it was CS5), but I'm waiting on setting up my new comp before installing it (its a much more powerful machine than this laptop here, not to mention has a monitor of considerable size, which is nice).

On those rare occasions that I have done art, I tend to use Fireworks 8, I have a copy of Photoshop, which I have not installed and do have GIMP but don't have the motivation to learn it.

I find Paint quite useful too sometimes. Most of the graphics I do actually do is business related.

I find GIMP really hard to use... you definitely get more for your money with PhotoShop. It is just soooo much simpler

GIMP is free, so I'd hope Photoshop would be better Laughing

lolno. I find GIMP more convenient than PS. I would've been using PS a long time ago if it had certain features in certain ways.

And besides, as of GIMP 2.4 (I think it was 2.4) PS brushes can be used in GIMP Very Happy Wonder what 2.7 will be like.

GIMP = Easier and Free,
Photoshop = Better. No matter what anybody says, Photoshop will always be better than GIMP.

Exactly. Photoshop is better than GIMP. And you pay for simplicity. For example, instead of having to go into the menus to find the re-size tool, you only click on the image. And if you want to put a picture into a specific layer, you just go to File>>Place, and you're done!

I use GIMP. However, I'm starting a visual communication degree and the next class I'll take will allow me to purchase a student copy of photoshop. I'll probably be switching back and forth between the two for a while, because I've been using gimp for over 5 years now.
