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.
All around, it's a good application (especially when
compared to Paint Shop Pro 3).
If idle hands are the tools of the devil, are idol tools the hands of god?
