I'm planning on getting a program for colouring / adusting scanned drawings / artwork. I haven't done this kind of thing in a while (it's more of a hobby for me) and the laptop I have probably won't even support the newer software anyway. Would it be worth getting older programs to get started? I've seen older versions of Photoshop and Corel Draw on Ebay for a decent price (meaning I can own them legally of course!) - would it be worth getting older versions of these programs just to get started?
To give you an Idea of what I'm doing I'm basically a comic fan who has misguided intentions of writing / drawing his own stuff and maybe publishing someday, I have some stuff that I'd like to get scanned and show around to get feedback from other artists / fans.
