I use Corel Photo Paint and CorelDraw. I have been using it for probably 25 years.....well with upgrades along the way of course. I will take a look at PhotoScape. Sounds interesting. But I do wonder with all the great programs out there for free, why would people want us to do what they could do themselves. I know I should have whispered that but can't do that on the keyboard. But I am a realist. I'm good but I'm sure that there are people everywhere that are just as good and better, if they had the resources. When i was doing B & W, tinted portraiture, old school, with oils, people would want me to change things on the print. I did it with a special ink and I was a miracle worker (just kidding, but I was really good). When it became impossible to get B & W developed anymore, I had to go digital, but I did it kicking and screaming, because my actual photos will be around for a hundred years and.....blah, blah, blah. But I did enjoy a time there when I was one of a pretty select group who could do this work seamlessly. I amazed people with the stuff we do in 3 min. for free. Now you can get the programs for free, how come everyone doesn't do that?
