View Full Version : Paint Shop Pro
November 15th, 2003, 03:21 AM
I'm reluctant to start new threads, but after a while one begins to wonder... does anybody else on the face of the earth use Paint Shop Pro, instead of Painter or Photoshop? Should I ditch good ol' PSP and run out and buy either of those? I have a mouse, though I'd love to get a Wacom for Christmas or something. I figure there must be something inherently inferior in PSP...

well... i use painter for actual painting adn photoshop for editing.. i mean the names of the programs pretty much describe what they're good for, right?
Ive used paintshop pro once or twice, its fine, but i see no point in learning ANOTHER app to do the same thing, at the moment Open Canvas and Painter are doing wonders for me. :)

Would you say that PSP is roughly as good as painter, since you've used it at least a little? I wouldn't know, as I've never used Painter. I think I used Photoshop once or twice, but it was for some in-class assignment, so I didn't really get a chance to learn it. All I wanna know is if I'm missing out on something, here.

I use PSP for file management, but not for artification (why hasn't adobe adopted PSP's browsing system?!! who knows)

In my opinion, Painter is much more efficient and more able bodied. :)

Thanks for your comments. Maybe I'll look into Photoshop... everyone here seems to have so much fun with it!

Altho the subject seems closed, I would like to mention that PSP is good for pixel art and rigorous palette management.

Thanks for your input.. really, anything's helpful right now, I wouldn't call the subject closed. If I could get the same results with PSP that I could get with the other more popular programs, I'd just stick with it, since I've used it for so long. I can't wait to get a wacom, too... that'll probably help a ton.
