I wanted to post pictures of gimps, but all I can find is pictures about some open-source picture editing suite called GIMP. No idea why I was going to post images of gimps in response to this question, but the urge took me.

You could easily pirate it, but you seem more of a direct download man yourself. Good luck with that.

Use Paint.NET, It has 90% of the functionality of PS, is simpler, and is Open-source, so you can modify it. And is Free.

I use Paint.NET for most of my work, but photshop does everything it can in a better way.

Seven words: Public Education System Provides adobe suite for free.
At least in my country, we get laptops at ninth grade with the full adobe suite, for free, and if we graduate at 12th grade, we can keep the laptops, which is a huge plus.

If Colette's asking about it in this context, I doubt he actually has access to state-provided soft/hardware, Loaf...

I'm assuming you meant, "Then optimize the fuck out of Paint.NET". I have a shit ton of plugins for it and have all the custom settings to my liking, but it will never be as good as photoshop.

Sounds right.

I can't help, really. I got most of my super expensive ass software through college. As long as I could've conceivably used it in any course, I could get it for absolutely silly markdowns. 900 dollar programs for 20 bucks and whatnot. Sometimes these were "student editions" and sometimes they were not. I don't know why. The student editions of some programs are useless for creating materials for public consumption but mostly they stopped doing that years ago.

I know things like 3DSMAX (3D modelling program) have student versions (read free programs with fake information) that are the full thing for around the average of 4 years or so, but it's really just easier to pirate them before you settle in with them and one day have to either redownload it or pay for the full thing.
