Re: favourite software for digital art

I have found Photoshop as well as painter are useful to just paint. Probably I am not using any of the programs to their full extent, I am curious to find other software as well.

Thank you both for the feedback and support. I am mostly a traditional media guy and post most of my work in the figure forum. However, I do some digital stuff now and then and since you requested I will post something in the near future.
Thanks again.

Re: favourite software for digital art

Being very new to digital art, I began with Photo Shop Elements. Since then I have a very adequate program: Ulead's PhotoImpact 7 I obtained from purplus.com for about $16. I have since tried Dogwaffle ( a free program) and for 3D...3DCanvas (another free program) that i was able to animate my 3D creation-much as in 3DMax.

Re: favourite software for digital art

Up until recently, I would have said Paint Shop Pro.

But I recently bought psp 8.0, and the sucker wants internet access. Since I cannot understand a graphics program needing access to the internet... And since this one absolutely refuses to even begin to install without it...

I am thinking that I am not going to be recommending it any more.

Here is a link to a thread I started in the cafe about it...

http://wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=191551

Does anyone know if version 7 requires a browser, and/or internet access ?

If it does not... then does anyone know where I can trade my brand new, registerable, (Never even installed, let alone registered.), full version 8.0, with users manual... for a full version 7, with manual, that I can register ? (By mail, of course. LOL)

I am offering the whole thing. Exactly what I got in the box from Staples. I would like exactly the same. Not a copy, or burned cd, or anything of the sort. Factory box, original unmarred, and perfectly working cd, manual, registration card, and the program has never been registered before.

Seven does not need it. Eight needs something from MS in there latest browser. I was pissed when I found out on the Beta test group, but that didn't change anything. I still love my PSP 8, and use it for everything, but textured paint.

Thank you VERY much, Greg !

Ok, very cool. Now to find someone with an essentially virgin copy of 7.

I very rarely ever register software. Including even my OS. (98SE) I have the original cd, all the packaging, the registration card, the paperwork, etc. I bought it from a store. If I am ever asked about it, I can show all that to prove that I legally own the software. But I don't bother with registration.

I am hoping there is someone out there who has done the same with psp7.

Legally... I can give and recieve complete software programs... But only if a copy is not left installed anywhere, etc. If I give this psp 8 to someone in exchange, I am not allowed to keep a copy of the cd. Or an installed copy of it anywhere at all... I have to give all of it to them. Complete. If I had burned a backup copy of the cd, I would have to destroy that, or give it to them as well.

I do not want to be involved in piracy. Nowhere close, even. An exchange with the above conditions met, is perfectly legal.

And I am sorry if I am sounding anal, or like a real stickler, but I live on 300 dollars a month. Honestly. I paid more than 80 dollars for this program, and that is a very dear cost for me. I really do not want to make a trade, and then find out that I have gotten something second-rate, not complete, not working, or not legally mine...

Another alternative for me, would be to get a working installation cd of version 7, free from someone. Install it, and use it. (Without registering.) And if ownership is ever called into question, I can pull out my complete in the box, version 8 that has never been installed. It is a later version of the same program by the same company, and of greater value. The company got their profits. I paid for a copy of the program, and I am only using one copy of the program.

Whuf !

What a novella. Sorry.

Re: favourite software for digital art

I Use the Adobe Creative Suite Premium - Photoshop CS, Illustrator CS, Indesign CS, Go Live CS, Image Ready CS, Acrobat Professional. Macromedia Studio MX 2004 - Freehand MX, Flash MX 2004 Professional, Fireworks 2004 and Dreamweaver MX 2004 - Painter 7 Maxons Cinema 4DXL - Final Cut Pro and After Effects. It tends to let me go in any direction I want and by integrating the packages as and when I need them I get the desired results alot faster. - Oh and the newer software has to be activated over the internet or over the telephone in order to register it.

Re: favourite software for digital art

I voted for Paint Shop Pro because I have used that more. I have 7 and I also have 8 but I did not install 8 on my computer as yet. I also have Photoshop 7 but so far, it confuses me.
I want to learn what the hoopla is all about when it comes to Photoshop.

Re: favourite software for digital art

Should have added Project Dogwaffle to the list for 2D painting, and as entry level 3D Carrara Studio is rather complete too.
