Looking for something photoshop related. All i wanna do is basically be able to photoshop wheels on my car and maybe change the color. Something free would be sweet if anyone knows of anything. Otherwise just lookin for something cheap... not gonna spend 200$ to buy a program for such minimal use.

I use <A HREF="http://www.gimp.org/" TARGET="_blank">GIMP</A>. It's pretty great for being free.<p>On the other hand, apparently Adobe has pretty much turned a blind-eye to piracy of Photoshop. I suppose they figure they want you to be familiar with their program in case you go work for a business so that you'll convince that business to buy it for you... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> (One of these days I'll check out Photoshop. But, for now, I just use GIMP.)

Re: Looking for a free photoshop program or something cheap... (EngTech)

Really? Quite interesting - first time I've ever heard that. I've used Photoshop pretty heavily so don't mind paying the $200 updgrade cost. It's more than paid for itself.<p>You warn about buggy s/w, but then suggest free downloads and then also caution about good firewalls in the same sentence..... does not give me a comfortable feeling.<p>I agree with Starman's suggestion though - Gimp is quite a good app and free. I know a number of folks who have used it for a few years and are quite happy with it.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>EngTech</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Down Load and Try @ PirateBay.Org<p>Try Them for Free and Get Them for Free , Just have a Good irewall and Read Up on the Reviews from Others .<p><br>There are some Bugs in Photoshop that some People are Using to <br>Hack & Crack or Turn Your Machine Into a Bot .<p>The Review are Rated and Others do Police the Area and Downloads<br>Available .

Kyle, Photoshop Elements is fairly inexpensive and has a lot of power and capability. I don't know how long the sale will last, but Newegg currently has it on sale for $49.95 which is quite good.

( Also Remember to Read Install Notes ) !<p>Keys<br>Cracks<br>Seeding<p>Compression File Types<p>Any Questions ? <p>It's all in the Reviews - Say : someone just puts Up a Nice Package He's Seeding for Others and Playing the Nice Guy ( It Seems ) .<p>Look at the Download Numbers and Seeding Numbers & Reviews ( Read )<p>You'll see If the Photo Shop Pack has Been Up for - Two Days<br>and He - has 4 Down Loads , but 124 Seedings - What does that Tell You ?<p>Now a Good Package should be like 10 Down Loads and 20 Seeding <br>Posted for 7 Days ( Something Like That ! )<p>Do You Understand what that Means ?<p>Got the Entire Suite for - Zero Cost - No Issues !<p><br>Furthermore any Items would most Likely Be Safer then - Your - Favorite<br>Porno Site - LOL<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><br>I also Believe that - Piratebay.com is a Spring board from Piratebay.org<br>.net & .com has been sold for 8,500,000 million - Nice Little Web Site some Guys Rolled Up & Played Up Some Sharing and then - Hawked It !<p>See Ya !<BR><BR>

I kind off laugh when I hear people still using Bit torrent sites. It's like using a steam engine in your car.<p>Everyone in the tech world is now using Newsleacher / Newsgroups / Newshosting sites that allow you to download from multi servers at one time. <p>The last downloand I did was from 59 servers at one time with a SSL encryption.

Re: Looking for a free photoshop program or something cheap... (ForceFed Motorsports)

Even with s/w and h/w firewalls these days, pretty risky running any sort of shared client apps. No thanks - I don't like other folks crawling around on my hard drive.<p>As I suggested before, Photoshop Elements is fairly cheap when on sale, licensed, very powerful, well supported and somewhat intuitive.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>ForceFed Motorsports</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Im no tech guru, im so OG that i use Limewire haha <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> </TD></TR></TABLE>
