I'm going to strat to dabble with some kind of graphic design. I know that this product is great for "what ails you" in this category, but I can't drop that many dimes at this time ($699).
Does anyone know of a slightly less expensive and comparable, substitute?

umm, yeah,

that would be great.


thanks alot!

If you want to keep things on the up n up and legal here is a nice program to learn some graphics skills.

http://www.gimp.org/

It's called G.I.M.P aka GNU Image Manipulation Program.
It functions a lot like Adobe, but does lack some of the blockbuster features that you can do with Adobe.

Also you can get a good student version of Adobe at a local College or University store for around 2-300$.

But if ya want Free, I definitely recommend GIMP.

if you are a student you can get it for half that price. Or if you have kids that are students.

I used to do a ton of Photoshop work.
Im still pretty quick at it, just gotta give me some time to get back into it.
I used to basically do a lot of real world picture editing.. Dropping trucks, different paint jobs, almost like coverups, cleaning up existing pictures I guess.

I'd find a way to get Photoshop if you can, its one of the best. Not sure what else is out there thats really reasonable pricewise

I have photoshop, but I am terrible compared to what I can do myself. I am not into commercial art, as taking that class in art school is when I had enough.

I second this. Once you learn the GIMP's interface, its just as powerful as photoshop.........and its FREE

I've do some painting/drawing. I also do stencil art. I was big in to sculpture when I had access to a kiln. No room right now, but it will get plugged back in! I like photography. And I've done a few disc dyes as well.

I tried gimp, I couldn't find anything for batch processing or setting up actions. Is the function there and I just didn't see it. From what I saw it's great for free but can't touch CS3.
