    Hello!

    I am currently using a very long in the tooth version of Paint shop pro to to the initial design for my pages...

    The quality of the files it produces isn't great, IE things can be a little unclear at times... And I want something with newer and more powerful effects...

    I am considering using Adobe Creative suite 2...

    Working on my own I have very little idea what the industry standard is for a PC...

    I sometimes work with an artist who is Mac based and is also looking to update... He is also considering CS2.. I would like to be compatible if possible...

    Please give your inputs, experiences and opinions...

    Cheers -Hagen

    I think the leading gfx softwares are Photoshop and Fireworks.

    Personnaly I use photoshop simply because I've gotten used to it and the filters. I've tried using fireworks before but lack of time to learn to use it made me switch back.

    Hi karinne, thanks for the info...

    Photoshop comes up a lot... I have ussed fireworks in the past and quite liked it...

    Is there a version of Photoshop for the Mac? One of my bigest concerns is being compatible with the art world, because most of my art side of things is ammending stuff done by artisits, not original work...

    Cheers -Hagen

    Photoshop was practically born on a Mac so yes. Photoshop is defenatly the way to go if you have the money, and CS2 is very nice.

    Hey great!

    Which is best in your opinion... CS2 or Photoshop?

    In which part of CS2 do my main layout activities occur? IE the most paint shop pro like part?

    Thanks -Hagen

    Photoshop is my poison of choice for all of my design work. Occasionally I'll use Illustrator for graphics, but I'd definitely invest in PS. For PS tutorials and cool shortcuts, I'd check out www.good-tutorials.com.
