As is usual, I beg to differ. While I will not say and do not believe Corel's Photo Paint is superior to Photoshop, they are very much in the same ballpark. In my opinion, Photo Paint is superior in some respects, and inferior in others. On the whole, it's a wash. Where Photo Paint can not currently compete is in industry inertia, 3rd party support, and the vast user knowledge base that Photoshop enjoys. There is simply more knowledge available to the neophite Photoshop user than Photo Paint user (or any other image editor). This alone can be worth the price of admition. But in capabilities/features, I don't think an objective observer could give either the nod over the other. > Even after you have learned the basics, you can continue > learning, and learning.....and learning.... > As is the case with many of the more advanced editors. > If the expense is a problem, Corel photo paint or Paint shop pro offer many > of the features at lower prices, but if you can afford Photoshop, I doubt > that you will regret buying it. I don't think any serious user would regret the choice of Photoshop. In addition to its capabilities, using it has so many other thing advantages (as I've already mentioned). But don't make it seem like Photo Paint is a consolation prize that only gives you poor man's Photoshop capabilities. It is very much as industrial strength as Photoshop. You just don't get the volume of other advantages you get with Photoshop. ===== Visit my digital photography web site along with a lot of other interesting stuff at http://greer.simplenet.com.
