    yeah, ever since CS* started, photoshop has just been adding immature additions that other programs do alot better. I hear something about CS3 and 3D ? uh, get a real 3D program am i right


    but I just got CS3 Master Collection, my e-penis is much larger now.

    Also, you can get a copy of CS2 off eBay or something like that, for really really cheap. So you wont have the absolute latest version of Photoshop, but really it works just fine.

    If you want to start.....the gimp with the photoshop plug-in (make it work and look like photoshop) would be a good starter....but not an exact replacement for the adobe.

    There are tons of photo editing apps, memphis. They vary in price, feature set, and user friendliness. Photoshop ("CS3") is top-of-the-line, but very expensive, and with a very steep learning curve. Photoshop is really for professionals and for very advanced amateurs.
    But there are also a lot cheaper and simpler apps. Have a look at this fairly comprehensive listing.

    I would suggest you start with 'freeware' apps, which are, of course, FREE.
    Assuming you run Windows you may want to download and try Google's Picasa. Or you can even edit your pictures online via Photoshop Online (also FREE).

    If your serious and want to get into it proffesionally In my opinion it is the only way to go
    I agree with Kraellin, the dowside is its expensive.But! The upside is loads of support,loads of tutorials and books and plugins.Also most widely used

    photoshop is definitely the cadillac of graphic editors, but at $600 + retail i wouldnt call it an entry level program. but no, photoshop isnt your only option. paint shop pro, the gimp, photo impact and i dont know how many others can do quite competent work at a far easier price and an easier learning curve. you might take a look at the software forum for threads discussing these programs and in some instances comparing them to each other.

    Why is OpenSource software so ugly?
    by Doug Nelson
    I had to use gparted to install Vista this weekend, and I was reminded of my primary objection to Linux: all the interfaces and apps are ugly. Mishmashed fonts, ill-fitting UI features, and no concious attempt at any sort of unified standard.

    Even the apps offered as counter-examples...
