There are also free online photo editors that aren't too bad, like this one.

Pretty easy, huh? It's like it was designed by Freemasons and Illuminati working together to come up with the most arcane interface possible.
Shhh!!! DUDE! You weren't supposed to go there!

Re: Request for assistance

Frankly, I had to spend around $1600 per computer for Adobe CS5.5 for Fast Copy's graphics department. What distresses me the most is the cost to upgrade is practically impossible unless I take out a loan. That being said, I've used CorelDraw up to 9.0, and now I'm using CS5.5 at work and CS6 at home. I find all of their interfaces counterintuitive, and now that Forbin has divulged that the Illuminati and Freemasons are behind it, I'm kicking myself for not having realized that earlier. That explains everything.

I'm glad I'm not alone! The other graphics guy in my dept worked with Adobe until he started with us 15 years ago. Now he says he loves Corel and can barely remember how to use Photoshop. When he tries, he hates it.

The abovementioned coworker tried to get me the student version of Photoshop & Illustrator through his daughter in college. I loaded the software, put in the s/n, and got a pop-up window that demanded I send Adobe a college transcript and student photo-ID before they'd activate it. I gave the software back to guy. His daughter is using it now. And nothing I do, no uninstall program I can find, is able to remove the fucking useless software from my hard drive.

I just recently downloaded and installed GIMP. I'm finding it a bit clumsier than Photoshop. But that's probably because I've been using Photoshop for the last 20 years.

I like GIMP, despite its color depth-issues. And even those aren't much of a problem since I don't often work with RAW image files and have other software for that.

Another package you might like is MyPaint. It's my go-to paint package for when I want to rough-out ideas.

For structured, vector graphics, there's Inkscape. I use this for a lot of icon work and any time I need crisp lines without any jaggies.

I'd kill, though, for a modern equivalent of DeluxePaint III from my Amiga days.

It it even legal for them to ask for such information?!? I know that it's not allowed for anyone to copy my employee ID badge, so various schools may have similar restrictions.

Re: Request for assistance

I actually am on the graphic design committee at the local technical college. I'm not entitled to any discount on the Adobe software. Students can get a massively scaled down version, and at a lower price, but certainly not for free. And they have to get it through the college bookstore on-line which they log into with their student IDs.
