well...photoshop CS2 may be worth every penny...but you can get a dumbed down version for $119 called "Photoshop Elements". You just have to work a little harder to make nice gfx :)

It's a UK company, but they are quoting US $79.oo.

US $79 = 42.91 Britian pound

Pretty close to your budget. You have to try this program to believe it. Recommended . :thumbup

hmm.. i've tried a few of the programs on the list in the poll.

None of them really compare to Photoshop in my eyes.

I started out using paint shop pro. Its really not a bad program at all. Those who really learn how to use it can really do beautiful things with it. If you are on a tight budget..then thats what I would recomend.

After I tried photoshop however, I dont ever want to go back to using paint shop pro again lol. Instead of going for the new CS version of it you could try searching for older versions such as 7.0 which I have. Or try to buy it from places like Ebay in order to get it for less ^-^

You could become an eminent GIMP dude, GIMP does a lot of the things photoshop does, it's just much harder to work with imo.

Photoshop 7 does almost the same as CS and CS2, so you could find a good deal on ebay or amazon.

Another vote for PS CS2! Elements is "good enough" for most people (my dad's extremely happy with it), but if you have a previous legit copy of photoshop, the upgrade is not much more expensive. For a photographer, it's definitely worth the 150$! (Like I said in another thread, I upgraded from a copy of PS 5 LE that came bundled with a P&S digicam I bought to complement my DSLR a while ago)

Not that pricey really, and it's truly better than everything else, by FAR. Nothing comes even close.
