Hearts here, got to put my two cent

Hearts here, got to put my two cents into this because I have used all of them.   My first program for was Paint.   Also I have used Word draw for some very interesting things, like I do house plans and floor plans in Draw and as fill colors can put textures or pictures of plants or wood and ceramic floors, I love this.  My first graphics were in paint and are still considered a great accomplishment considering I was using such a simple program.  Then I had Photoshop and Paint shop Pro 6 at the same time tried them both and ended up using PSP all the time I think because I would always read the help tips when it opened. We had fireworks but did not do much of the animations it is good for as Paint Shop Pro has an animation shop.  We also have Power Point which my husband and I both sat down and designed a presentation for his employers so he could build their LAN, it was a great presentation and he got the job he is now a network engineer.  We used Paint Shop Pro7 and Dream Weaver to create my husbands website.  We used Publisher but I truly love Word and transfer most of my pictures I have created over to word just by dragging them and double clicking on the little thing that looks like a flag and adding my borders and text.  I got started doing this back when I didn't know how or like what Paint Shop Pro did for Text.  Paint Shop Pro has greatly improved their text and drawing programs and they are very useful as either.    I do all my Christmas Cards and Bookmarks in Word as well as the floor plans etc and still love them.  I also create wonderful receipies using colored bars in Word.  All the drawing programs are good but I love them New Paint Shop Pro 8 the best and Word is still incredible if yo know how to use it right.  All my life I have been an artist love the computer graphics I have been able to achieve using these programs.  One of the tools brushes in a program called Image Ready I especially love, it made my Christmas lights look real.  Photoshop is good but I have not found anything that it can do that PSP cannot.  Today I use PSP 8 if you do not have it you should get it you can do anything with the tool bars you want I put all the toggle eyes on my standard tool bar and can toggle back and forth as I don't like them all over the place.  After awhile you will actually understand the differences between them all and end up loving psp8, you just might not have much hair left, but it is worth it all in the end.  Like me you might end up having a lot of fun with them all "Good Luck". Just try real hard to learn, read the help tips and read this help from these experts.
