in reply to Favorite Graphics Creation Tool

Fave? Paint Shop Pro 5. Love it. Good schtuff.

Perfectly powerful for screen-based images (desktops, websites, POVRay, etc). Medium strength on images destined for print media. Good for pixel shims, icons, screen captures; TWAIN support is respectable. Supports masks, alpha channels, layers, monitor gamma, color management, PhotoShop plugins, and so on. I've done some fantastic retouching with this app; clone brush be my friend.... It can split on CMYK/RGB colorspaces, and it can *join* on those colorspaces as well. Extensive support for a lot of image formats. Downside? The "picture-tube" feature introduced in PSP5, if you ask me, is rather useless; another "image creation for dummies" featurette. Whatever.

All around, it's a good application (especially when compared to Paint Shop Pro 3).
