    Which software do you use to create graphics with?

    I have always used Photoshop Cs3, I have messed about in gimp and I did not like it.

    Photoshop CS4. I had CS3 then ironically one of my friends had CS4, and didn't need it so I gladly upgraded.

    Photoshop any day, mainly for the reason Terry gives, it just does it for you. No hassle, no pain.

    Yeah, for me GIMP is a decent free alternative. No need to go illegal.

    Yeah GIMP can be pretty good, epically if you add plugins to it.

    I have always found GIMP too slow to work with

    I guess it's a bit slower but I love the alpha to logo effects, they're really quick and make things look good.

    Same as me. I would choose PhotoShop if it was cheaper though.

    I've always used GIMP, it supports a great many file formats and I like the layer style editing one can do on it, one can also draft up alot of graphics quite quickly with the plugins and the image filters. It's quite a powerful program for something that I believe is OpenSource.

    Of-course PhotoShop and I prefer this over any other software for designing. I hope everyone using PhotoShop will like to continue with the same.

    GIMP is not so bad, but the lack of layer groups when opening a PSD file is really annoying.
