    Hi there,

    I have created a website using I Web, however i would like to add my personal touch to the page. I want to create logos and pictures on a graphic design programme and then add them to my website, Someone suggested photoshop but i checked it out and it's very expensive. Could anyone recommend free or trial programs or any programs that are at the lower end of the scale?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,

    Thank you,

    Jim

    You can check out Gimp - its a free program thats for image manipulation like photoshop. Works slightly differently, does slightly less, but worth a look!

    http://www.gimp.org/

    And a program called Inkscape is the vector graphics version of Gimp. So use this instead of Illustrator for logos and vector stuff.

    Hope that helps!

    Gimp or even Seashore are good for bitmap graphics. Both are free.

    If you want and have the money, you could buy Pixelmator. Sometimes it has discounted price.

    For verctor graphics, you could try this:

    If you are making this website for the first time then you need some tutor who shows you how to do it the right way or just get a video tutorial for the basics of website building.
