    I am looking for a simple and intuitive graphic design program, it doesnt need to be as sophisticated as something like adobe illustrator, but a bit better than Ms paint.

    my friend currently uses MS word to create graphic organizers for her class (teaches middle school). its a lot of graphical shapes/arrows/text boxes. Using MS word *works* but she sorta fights it the whole time since Ms Word is made to be a word processor.

    Shes not the most tech/computer savvy so I was trying to avoid something as complicated as illustrator.

    Hoping for something free or inexpensive (sub 100$)

    MS Powerpoint might work better than MS Word for graphics.

    Similarly Keynote has some graphics capabilities, and is more OSXy.

    Pixelmator is a pretty sophisticated graphics software and very affordable. I believe they have a trial version that you can download and also a large number of well made tutorials. I believe it is on sale right now for $15!!!

    Keynote or Pages are good Apple apps. They work for many graphic design projects and are pretty easy to use.
