  • What are the MOST COMMON image editing programs?

    I'm trying to put together a tutorial in basic image editing geared towards the amateaur consumer and I need to cover all bases. Besides Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, and Jasc Paint Shop Pro, can someone give me a few other programs out there that are popular on the consumer market?

    Corel PhotoPaint is what I use.

      I'm not saying how good any of these are, but these are listed in a very recent special edition magazine on "Computer Scrapbooking":

      ACDSee 6
      Adobe Photoshop CS
      Adobe Photoshop Elements
      ArcSoft Photo Impression 5
      CorelDraw Graphics Suite 12
      Jasc Paint Shop Power Suite
      Microsoft Digital Image Pro 9
      Roxio PhotoSuite 5 Platinum
      Ulead PhotoImpact XL

        Another program: PhotoBrush from MediaChance
 (graphics) - would be a good place to look for others.

              Paint Shop Pro vs Photoshop
              by albatrosss
              Obviously Photoshop costs what it does because of its versality. Yet when I see the work that "Kraellin" does on a daily basis with Paint Shop Pro, I wonder if the disparity in price for Photoshop is justified, unless of course you are a pro.

              Couple years ago I saw this artist in New York profiled on some TV show. He takes photos of famous pictures like Whistler's Mother, takes out the face, and replaces it with his dogs' face. This is what I want to learn how to do with my cat. I know Photoshop CS3 can do this, as he mentioned using it,...

              I have a 10 MP DSLR that I like because it allows me to learn and work up from the point and shot mode in a moderate amount of time. Will be getting Elements for the same reason, good choice or no? My editing will be directed toward a "paint" program that would give my photos a Tom Kincaid...

              paint shop pro versus photoshop
              by zganie
              I was wondering wht the differences are between paint shop pro and photoshop
              Not the price but the actual program
              Can you basically do everything in both or are there somethings you cannot do in paintshop pro
              like curves levels etc....
