You can buy Photoshop Elements (which is a scaled down version of Photoshop 6) for $100. I've found that with two exceptions (paths and channels) it has everything I need.--Tony

There is an evaluation version of Photoshop available which you can download. Not sure of the exact web site, but I downloaded the 6.0 version from the website.Hope this helps.Mark

Not having channels is huge, because the Alpha channel in a Targa file is what is used to set metallic effects in repaints, etc.PSIf you are an educator or a student, the academic version of Photoshop is MUCH less. It is the same version as the full product, but at a very discounted price.

There are many "ways" to get Photoshop, Office XP Pro, FS2002, and just about any other software... buying them is the most legal way... :)

I recommend Paint Shop Pro is so damn cheap and along with image toolyou can have your 32bit textures,alphas,targas,nightlighting etc...I think you only need Photoshop if you are a Professional Painter..IMHO

Ever heard of software piracy? That's what he's talking about.The only legal (and thus proper) ways are to BUY the software or get it for free from someone who BOUGHT it for you from an OFFICIAL dealer.There is another way with some manufacturers. Sometimes a software company will give away copies of their products if information you provide helps them catch software pirates or helps fix bugs. Betatesters are sometimes rewarded with free copies of the finished product as well (but you need in-depth knowledge of the product and the way it is meant to be used in order to qualify for that).Be legal, buy software (or use a freeware alternative).http://www.adobe.com (http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/main.html) trial version http://www.adobe.com/products/tryadobe/dow...html?ftpID=1403http://www.jasc.com (http://www.jasc.com/products/psp) trial version http://www.jasc.com/download.asp?prod=001http://www.gimp.orgPhotoshop 7.0: $609.00PSP 7.0: $109.00 (or $99.00 for the download version which is identical)

Yes, there is nothing cheap about Adobe products. Unfortunately there's a good reason for that - except for 3DStudio which I hate (I use Lightwave which has a lot better interface), it's all incredibly good.I have spent thousands of bucks for Photoshop, Premiere, After Effects, just about everything for video and image editing. I just can't buy Acrobat, it's just too much for me.I need to win the lottery to keep updating. Anyone want to adopt me?Now forgive me - I have to leave to laugh about the free thing.

Someone commented on the lack of channels in Photoshop Elements being critical because of alpha channels and their use in creating metallic textures in FS2002.What I do is use DXTBMP to export and import existing alpha channels. It's a pain to create them separately (at work, I have a the full Photoshop so I am very familiar with it's full feature set vs. what I get with Elements).The DXTBMP method adds an extra step or two, but it does make life VERY easy for repaints, without the additional $500 for the full version of Photoshop. (I do miss those paths, thought!!)--Tony

It's from Discreet (and it's *my* favorite in that class, but to each his own). AFAIK, Adobe doesn't make any 3D software (although I wouldn't be surprised to learn they buy Bryce or something similiar just in order to have something to fill that product gap).

My comment on getting the "illegally" was moslty for humor. In all honesty, software developers work hard to make programs, and they charge prices accordingly...maybe a bit high at times. Although, the black market of trading games/software online is really at an all time high.

Mike,Sorry about that. I don't know why I always confuse Autodesk and Adobe. I HAVE old Autodesk programs, like Animator Pro (isn't Macromedia Flash something like Animator was?)!
