I have taken the plunge and got a single-app subscription for Photoshop. Any advice? I have been using Photoshop Elements for a few years now, but I never imagined how un-powerful it was. Now, to update my fleet...

I wrote a tutorial a while ago, explaining some of the basics, you might want to start there.

I have seen many paints made with the help of painting programs like Gimp , PaintshopPro and Paintnet.
Photoshop is no doubt probably the most sophisticated program on the curent market.
BUT keep in mind there no need for such a program for most skilled painters.

Making a good painting does not start with buying expensive brushes.
Buying a Steinway does not help me , I cannot play the piano.

If a was an excellent piano-player , playing a Steinway would make it only a fraction better than playing a cheaper japanese grand-piano.

Hi Folks,

I’ve used GImp, Paint Shop Pro, and Photoshop over many years - if you get tired of paying Photoshop “rental (extortion) fees” - take a look at Paint Shop Pro - does everything Photoshop does - for a one time purchase fee and you can even find it for a very reasonable price on sale... I’ve always preferred it to Photoshop...

The one major thing the payware alternatives have over GImp - is they support “vector graphics” - this is a pretty useful feature with aircraft because it gives you smooth “beizer” curves without having to paint them pixel by pixel... GImp doesn’t have this...

Enjoy.,, 

Regards,

Scott
