Anybody know of a photo munipulation pogram for MAC. So I can add images and play with the lighting, size whatever. Basically I'm saying Photoshop. But I can't afford that right now, so I downloaded the trial. But the trial just finished. I can't download it again:( So now I'm looking for another type of program. I'm trying to download Illustrator. But that's not working. I'll try to figure out the problem. Does anybody know of a program I can download at www.download.com or anywhere. Remember I need this for a MAC, so PC stuff won't work. If someone could help me out I would really appreciate it :yeah:

Download Kazaa, then download Photoshop CS.

If you have Bit Torrent, download Photoshop from a good Bit Torrent site.

why not just iPhoto? When I had my ibook, that is all I needed unless I was trying to make graphics.

If you bought it new it should be installed by default, other wise use you iLife CDs to reinstall it.

Thanks re:pic. Yeah Lindsay is cool. I really liked her in Mean Girls.

I was gonna suggest Gimp. Its pretty good. Just a little tricky to use. And I'm not sure if it is available on Mac.

Elements is ok, but it feels very watered down and "pre-school"-ish compared to Photoshop.

its not "pre-school", its entry-level, so people like the topic started dont have to go around stealling a copy of photoshop CS. Elements if very high esteemed and easily the best software for under $300 for what is meant to do. elements is actually fine for anyone other than a pro, and frankly if you cant afford CS i would question whether you dont need it. if you need it and cant afford it you you need to demand a raise. One expert said "you can do anything in elements that you can do in CS".

now if you are a PHOTO or photo-related STUDENT call adobe, i am 99.99993 percent sure they have a discounted version if you buy it through the school.

I'm sorry if I came across wrong in my post and it sounded like I was insulting Elements. Elements is very good at what it does and can produce great results if fully mastered.

Its just that I use CS very often, and I notice the benefits it has over Elements more easily.

Personally, I feel Photoshop is wildly overpriced. 600 for Image Manipulation Software is too much, no matter how good it is. I have no doubt its heavy use in the creative industry has seen Adobe feel the need to cash in.

dont worry,

thats the thing about CS adobe makes it for folks for whom money is no object and then tries to justify the price, where as elements is just ment to be money value, so is CS worth it. i dont think so, but you are a pro and someone else is paying for it, or if money is no object ;) personally i have all felt that CS and its ancestors should be priced at $300 exactly, its not worth a penny more, but here it runs for $649.99 :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

but when compared i with other software in its price point elements is a no brainer

Thats a fair point. Photoshop is designed for businesses who can afford it. But Adobe seem to forget that many home users love it too. They released Elements to satisfy the home user and gave it a decent price, but its a shame that Photoshop CS was not given a decent price to begin with, so home users and businesses could both afford it.

Adobe are shooting themselves in the foot because the enormous price inevitably leads to Photoshop being pirated and downloaded by the common people who are not willing to splash out $649.99 on a single piece of software.

Its not just Photoshop that is ridiculously overpriced. Software as a whole is becoming more and more expensive. 3DS Max 6 costs 3500. :eek: Some would argue that Microsoft Office (which is used by practically EVERYONE with a computer) is overpriced at about 350.
