    Hello Clifford,

    Welcome to the forum

    I'm not an expert on the graphic design part, but I assume everybody (including those experts) are using Adobe Photoshop.

    adobe photoshop is the best. And you can find millions free tutorials outside there.. just 'googling'

    here's some resources site :
    TeamPhotoshop.com
    good-tutorials.com
    guistuff.com

    ask google for more.

    if you want the free open source software, you can try gimp. www.gimp.org
    among the best free image manipulation and grafix software. Also had a big user community.

    Yea,

    Adobe Illustrator is for drawing and design stuff.
    Adobe Photoshop - Touching, Contrasting, Merging .. etc
    Quarkxpress - Mainly for Annual Report or Magazinez

    BTW, nowaday..
    Quarkpress not yet lead DTP software. peoples turn to Adobe Indesign.

    why? Easy. because we need photoshop to edit the image, and ilustrator too..
    license issue will give advantage for Adobe complete set = photoshop, ilustrator = layout in Indesign.

    you dont had to buy another company (quarkxpress) sofware.

    I find photoshop and paintshop very hard to understand, maniputate and needing to much memory when I need to have lots of other applications running at the same time.

    So my option is NeoPaint enhanced with IrfanView to manipulate options no available with the first.

    IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide
    NeoSoft Corporation: Publishers of NeoBook, NeoPaint and QuikMenu.

    That's cool, Mastermind.

    I'm using Fireworks. I prefer using it over Photoshop, as in 1)photoshop's memory usage is..'astounding', 2)you can't fight the simplicity combines with functionality of fireworks.

    I recently switched to Paint.NET, with all the nice reviews about this open source graphic software. Well, it still can't compete with photoshop or fireworks, but hey, it's free and it's better than GIMP

    btw.. it's not about memory .
    im using photoshop CS in my office MAC.
    and in my home pc.

    my office mac is 768 RAM and my home pc is only 512 (wish to upgrade to 2GB next month ) .

    it's not so much different right..
    but.. my mac , can handle a file above than 50MB! example = 600dpi , nearly 5000 X 8000 pxl.

    but in a pc, only 5 - 10 mb psd can handle.
    i think, it's also about the windows matter.

    BTW, im using GIMP too.. just playing around.. but the interface not so friendly.
    never tried paint.net yet.. ok.. i will try later

    Since Macromedia & Adobe join forces.
    Kinda excited over it. =D
    Try to get the whole Adobe package, instead of buying per software program.

    I've used Paint.NET, as test program for Microsoft back then to ganti Ms Paint.
    But I doubt it will be free later. If free bagus lah. Apa tak bagus kan XD.

    I've used GIMP too, it's pretty good. But their mascot d' wolf/musang very hamsap lookin. I don't like. :P

    Oh yeah I've tried out several Ajax13 office product e.g. ajaxWrite, XLS, Present etc. freewares Yes.
    Baguskan FREE one wei! NO NEED to install.
    Good thing can use anywhere, anytime, provided wth net access and can connect to their website @ US.

    Their ajaxSketch review:
    ajaxSketch is a web-based drawing tool that handles the SVG format natively. With a familiar drawing interface, ajaxSketch allows you to create and edit complex SVG images that are easily imported into Microsoft Visio, Adobe Illustrator, Inksape, Macromedia Freehand, and other SVG capable programs.

    I still dislike GIMP interface.
    but i did some design using it.. Since i mastered in photoshop much.. the GIMP still not perfect and suit for me..

    btw, it's ok and free ..
    i think they should upgrade the look after this.. at least, as nice look as blender3d (yet another free 3d software)
