    Default Photoshop

    Can anybody recommend a version of Photoshop I can buy that's not very expensive? I saw one for about $1200. That's a bit much for me right now. Something for beginners is what I'm looking for. I don't need all the bells and whistles right now.

    Thanks......
    I can't remember which comedian said it, about the current state of Van Halen, but he said right now, Van Halen is like a really hot playboy playmate with a prosthetic leg.

    Have you looked at Gimp (http://www.gimp.org/)? It's free and works on Windows and Linux.

    You can get it for free on piratebay. I got one for my Mac with all the registration keys. Works fine.

    When unless you run parallels on your Mac, you'll need to get the Mac version and the PC one. The Mac one I got from there works great though! Never tried the PC version, I just use my Mac for graphic stuff.

    What are you going to use it for? Photoshop Elements is a good alternative, and quite a bit cheaper. It's got some of the best features of PS, much like you said, lacking some of the bells and whistles.

    If torrenting is your choice for the time being, go with Photoshop Elements 6.0. It's very effective for many uses.
    I swear, it's like I'm playin' cards with my brother's kids or somethin'. You nerve-wrackin' sons-a-bitches.

    If you, or someone you know is a student at a university, it can be gotten much cheaper that way as well. I would also agree with the elements reccomendation, though.

    Haha, I'd never expect piratebay recommendation from you, dude. But yeah, piratebay or isohunt.

    BottomsUp, what do you need Photoshop for? I've been using 6.0 since 1999. Never had to upgrade it. I had worked with CS2 while employed as web-designer - honestly I could much rather do with 400MB old version than 2+GB of some crap you'd hardly ever need.

    If you don't want to mess around with pirated versions - http://cgi.ebay.com/Adobe-Photoshop-...em220284932526 - here's an eBay 6.0 version for 10 bucks.

    I agree with Yerf.

    The full PS program is filled with filters only pro shooters need. Elements has a great set of tools for editing photos and graphics. I think the full PS-Elements program runs $150 or so.

    I guess I'm just using it to alter photos for some video editing that I'm doing. I just bought Final Cut and I want to be able to bring in photos that I need to cut stuff out of....for starters anyway.

    Editing with Final Cut. People tell me I should learn Photoshop and After Effects if I'm going to edit. I guess they all go hand in hand.
