    Has anyone used The Print Shop 21 Pro Photo?

    Do you like it?

    Would you think it was better or equal or worse than Microsoft Picture It Premium 10?

    Photoshop's not too bad, but I'm not a terribly big fan of spending $600. I use http://www.gimp.org - for anyone used to PS they might prefer http://www.gimpshop.net/ - GIMP redone with the Photoshop Interface.

    Photoshop CS2. I'm still learning how to run it after almost a year (yea, I'm a slow learner) but it is an excellent program.

    I cannot pay that much for a program. My DH would kill me.

    I am going to go out today and get Corel Pain Shop Pro X

    If cost is a concern, I'd reccommend trying Gimp. It's free. I use it for my stuff and love it. My wife actually prefers it to photoshop.

    Photoshop 7 was my main photo-editor until I started shooting exclusively raw with my new E-500. PS7 doesn't have integrated raw support and I was no way going to pay £500 for the latest PS. So I got PS Elements 4 with ACR built-in and it's great. Beats using a separate raw converter then having to do the rest in PS7. Also because PSE4 is much newer than PS7 by around 4/5 years, it's actually a more powerful and capable program, with just a handful of features missing that I never used anyway. Highly recommended.
