Comparing PaintShop Pro, Photoshop and Corel's Photopaint: PaintShop Pro
is cheap and will do everything you need to a web graphic. It will even use
of the filters designed for Photoshop. However, it selection and color tools
are less
powerful than PhotoShop. It will handle a print graphic, but barely. The new
is better, but I would not want to use it regularly for print. It does
transfer graphics
from one format to another quite well, though. And the browser feature is
really cool.

Corel's Photopaint has some neat filters to it (page curl or the fractal
explorer) but
it does funky things to color. It does handle AVI's well. It is a memory hog
and does
seem to be a bit unstable.

Photoshop is my choice for print graphics. It is powerful and flexible. It
does seem to
be a hard-drive hog, and it will be unstable if you don't have A LOT of RAM.
I love the
layering and color control. Most print shops are used to working with it, as
