Corel Photopaint owns Photoshop... Photoshop is simply more widely supported because of it's popularity (Which is due to the marketing power of Adobe). For "from scratch" graphics, you can't beat Photopaint.

I sitll use Photoshop for some stuff though... after all, no good painter uses only one brush.

The Adobe products Iím certain on.

Adobe Photoshop CS is $649 US
Adobe Photoshop CS upgrade is $169 US

I think the Corel is $299 US
And the upgrade is $149 US

I prefer Photoshop, but thatís for two main reasons. One, Iím a long time user. I started using Photoshop around 1992 on a buddyís Mac, and Iíve been hooked. The other reason is 3rd party books. I know with Photoshop you can go to your local Borders or Barnes and Noble and find books on how to use Photoshop. There may be books for Corel also, but I would be willing to bet that the volume of choices for Corel doesnít compare to Photoshop. Heck, I have three Photoshop books that are the greatest references I could possibly haveÖwell, until I found FakenÖI :) this guy!

Though I like Photoshop, Itís not an easy program to learn. I may have started on Photoshop 1.0, I didnít buy my first version until 5.0. I missed out on 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0, and the level of improvement and complexity between the two versions was huge. It wasnít until 6.0 that I started to feel comfortable with the program, and it hasnít been until recently while using 7.0 that I felt secure enough to display ANY of my workÖand Faken has already teased me about my usage of lens flare ;) .

I canít believe that Corel is much easier to use, but if you were thinking of buying one, I would listen to Faken. I donít think heís on Corelís payroll :lol: , and he wonít lead you wrong ;) .

I wish I was smart enough to know how to write IRC scripts ;) So, alas it was not I.

I barely know how to turn on my Faken computer! :lol:

...A simple "No" seemed to blunt and impersonal... :)
