I will possibly check out gimp, but FotoSketcher seems to be doing what I need it to do. Adobe is nice but costly. I am sure in the future I will upgrade to a nicer design program if need be.as recommended Gimp is a pretty powerful program. I have used it as well as Photoshop, my personal favorite is Adobe Illustrator but cost can prohibitive to most as its not the cheapest program around...does a very nice job though.
Ive never tried this but i have cs5 so i would guess that does it, i only use it for my photography and not looked into the other stuff it does lol but as gimp is free thats a cheaper option.
just the cs5 mike :icon_sad:
