    Which Photoshop should I buy?

    I thinking about purchasing Photoshop software to make my own sigs & other stuff. What version of Photoshop or Photoshop Elements do you sig makers use now & what would be an adequate choice? I currently have Paint Shop Pro 4.15 SE on my comuter now. How does that rate against Photoshop?

    I still may require the services of P.P.O.s elite group of expert sig makers to make me one in mean time.

    Also, I looking to get a jpg file of the P.P.O logo large enough to make a T-shirt iron-on. I also want to make a window decal from the same logo to proudly display on my car to show that I'm a member. Does anyone have one the could PM or e-mail me?

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanx!

    Re: Which Photoshop should I buy?

    Well if I was you I would buy a 2nd hand version of photoshop. Look at half priced books or something.
    Big bucks for a new version.
    I have worked in every version of photoshop produced.
    But I will say that is at work, they flip the bill.
    I bought PS 5 2nd hand from our ITS dept for home.
    For what I need to do at home it is enough.

    Now Ultra is using a program that seems to be a good one.
    Sorry but I can't remember what he said the name was.
    Just PM him, he'll help you out.
    Also Del Rio is really into the latest and greatest of all things computer.
    He is another great guy, who I am sure would give some advice.

    Now PPE is really great with the sigs here.
    Many many people use his orignal works of art.
    And talk about a guy with a gift.
    He got Ultra to do some pretty good work just through emails.
    That is rare to be able to do that.

    I would just save the big bucks and hit those guys for advice.
    There may even be members here who have these programs and they no longer use them because they have upgraded.
    Thing is don't get frustrated or in a hurry.
    Like anything else, once you know any of the programs the others just make sense and are easier to work in.

    Hope that helps

    All you need in PS Elements. It is only $99 or so. You can do pretty much everything that I can with that.

    The other versions go from $699 and up.

    Elements is the way to go. You can get it at any store that sells software like a Best Buy.

    The members here are more than willing to give you a hand.

    Good luck!

    Re: Which Photoshop should I buy?

    Here is a place to start to get an idea of price.

    You can find similar prices on E-bay if you don't have a way to ge the academic discount.

    http://www.academicsuperstore.com/?page=QuickSearch&qks=1&page=QuickSearch&qks=1&qk_ srch=photoshop&x=0&y=0

    CS2 is not necessary.

    Anyone of the elements will work fine.

    I use 7.0 but they no longer sell that on this site. If you can find it, it works fine. I use mine for my profession and there is no need for me to upgrade to the CS2.

    Re: Which Photoshop should I buy?

    Thanx Ultra & 6-Kings. I was at Best-Buy today. Elements was $99 & another Photoshop software pkg was $149. I thought I'd check out eBay for Photoshop software & that' when I ran into so many versions & high-end grades of it.
    6-Kings, You may want to check with your work on your Photoshop software. You may already be licensed to use & maintain a copy of the same Photoshop that's loaded on your PC at work on your home PC. That's the way Microsoft Office works at least at my office, provided I sometimes use the software for business purposes.

    The package for $149 was probably Photoshop Elements and Elements Premiere. Premiere is for video editing, which I plan on buying here soon.

    Re: Which Photoshop should I buy?

    Ebay has several new copies of Photoshop 3.0 for $30, but there is no manual. I assume the manual is in the "help" of the software pkg. I currently watching other auctions that are even less than that.
