How much money is Photoshop? I've recently bought a new Macbook for graphic design and am planning on being a professional graphic designer. I will need Photoshop or illustrator. How much are they? I've searched everywhere and can't find an answer... (How much are they individually not together, unless if it comes with a special better deal) Now if the price is high please tell me some good SAFE alternates, I need these alternates to be SAFE and NOT slow down my laptop or give me a virus. Now I know if I am going pro I will eventually need to get the Photoshop and illustrator official but I am in 10th grade and think I can wait a year or two before I make the BIG purchase.
