Im not trying to spend the 700 bucks for Adobe Photoshop CS so what other program should I get... trying to keep it under 150...

My ideas right now are:

Corel Paint Shop Pro
Adobe Photoshop Elements 4
Micosoft Digital Image Suite 2006

Paint Shop pro is not a bad program.
Adobe Photoshop elements is alot like photoshop just less features i believe.

Also look around for a program called Gimp i heard its free and alot like photoshop although i have never tried it.

Ive actually found PhotoImpact 11 to be great... I might just order it. I got the trial version from www.download.com... anybody thats looking for something to play with for 30 days, this is great...

I got a copy of photoshop 7 from a friend, installed it on my computer, then went online and upgraded to photoshop CS2 for about $ 150.00. It's not the full blown version of CS2, but I go to Barnes and Noble or Waldens or Borders bookstores and get the photoshop mag. They have upgrade CD's with Brushes, Gradients, Styles, Filters, Textures, Fonts and such. The Magazines cost anywhere between $10.00 and $40.00, but they come with the CD's and lot's of tutorials. I'm sure I could spend a little less, but this routine works for me. I also have Photo Impact Pro, and Roxio easy media creator 7.5, but neither even touch Photoshop.
