With the approval of MudBug I'm starting a new type of photoshop thread. Instead there is no source pic, so photoshops will be around a general topic. I got this idea from a photoshop thread at Fark.com

This is an excellent question. I've bought just about all of the Adobe products at one time or another, including Photoshop and frankly never use any of them. They are all just too complex, despite being powerful and complete. I did get Photo Studio free with .Mac and have been using that since. I post antique pictures on my web site, and for removing the background, and straightening the odd picture up, its perfect, especially when used with iPhoto and its simple tools.

You spent that h*ll of money in adobe products but feel happier with Photo Studio... that's Pro! :p ... Come on, did you really spend that much for nothing? :eek:

Things may look complicated to start with but once you expirement you can get the hang of it

I used to think Photoshop was hard, once I tried it out it wasn't so bad, maybe you should give it another try

I'm working on a mosaic of 'Our Lady of Guadalupe' for a church. I use Photoshop to try out different colors and patterns before I go forward with the tiny pieces of glass. I have sample boards with all the colors, so, using Photoshop, I'll pick up a color and drop it into a photo of the area being worked on and so on. It helps a lot, especially as the finished mosaic will take about 9 months to complete. Ron.
Only the face and hands are done so far the other areas are pieces of glass laid in for checking color etc..

Interesting but I think you have, nonetheless, missed the point of this thread.

This is what I first thought the topic would be when I read the title though.

I don't see real key limes in the store very often, so when I do, I usually buy the whole lot. This means a lot of time bent over a juicer later in the afternoon, though.

Thanks, it brought a smile to a otherwise hard day from a PS CS and InD CS user. Maybe could a thread for InDesign users?

You might want to put a verb in that second sentence but since you've had a hard day I'll let it slide. ;)
You could start a thread for InDesign users but I assume more people have photoshop or gimp than indesign so the number of contributions might be lacking.
I'd be happy to see an Indesign since I don't have much of an idea of what it can do, the most I know about it is that its a publishing app for layout and design.

As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so Photoshop is well suited to things like this. If you do come up with an idea for an InDesign thread I'd be interested.
