    The adobe master collection which has programs like photoshop, illustrator, dreamweaver, after effects. That's what my school has at all the labs and everything. They're the industry standard. The price for them are threw the roof. Need to find a way to get them, if u kno what i mean, haha

    I also got Corel painter IV "free" (yeah rite with what this school is costing me)... It's basically for digital painting not graphic design but I thought I'd throw that in there.

    I just looked up gimp. And I'm questioning.. why is this any better then photoshop? ( I'm a graphic designer )
    Gimp more looks like it has the basics of photoshop.
    Gimps features are much slimmer then photoshops.. and it more looks like a program to touch up a photo a lil bit instead of really making a graphic design..

    don't get me wrong, photoshop is to just touch up photo's too, but it has such amazing options.. its also very useful for graphic design.. but if you are going to print it and you need small text (such as this forum) that you want people to read.. don't but that text into photoshop because it will pixel and you'll see that in the print.. instead you place it into indesign (also a program from adobe) and then you put the basic text on it.

    so for graphic designing.. i would go for photoshop, if you want to make a vector file, use illustrator.
    If you want 3d (which is real hard imo) pc = 3d max ma c= cinema 4d


    sorry for my bad english, I'm dutch.
