I first used one of these as my wallpaper just over a year ago. After rebuilding my machine and loosing the image I have been on the hunt for them ever since. A chance find of an email in my archive has reunited me. ++silent11 (Now that I am able to vote!)
heh. 9 years later I find these images sitting on an old linux machine I'm about to decomm. the links to the above images have been broken for the better part of the last decade.
these desktop images will now have a permanent home at:
While I'm not particularly fond of the images any more I had to provide the link to their new home just in case :)
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).

Hmmm. My favorite graphics creation tool is a pinhole camera and a scanner. Okay, I admit it: more likely to be a 35mm camera onto Photo CD. I suppose I'd use the GIMP after that, though, to make the image computer-useful. Then Illustrator for when text or nice looking printing is involved. I also really liked old versions of Painter for Mac OS.
My digital camera (HP Photosmart 318, a christmas present from my parents and iPhoto, terribly slow on my beige 266 MHz PowerMac), and POVray (currently switching to MegaPOV since there was an OSX-Version available, transfer not
I've always been a big Photoshop and PSP fan, but I also have a copy of the Win32 port of The GIMP on my system because I really like some of the stuff it can do (image offsets to make tileable web backgrounds, for one)
I used to be a huge photoshop fan... back in the ps5 days. ps6 is just too complex, it's the jack of all trades but master of none kind of program.
I'm going to have to go with the gimp. anyone seen my gimp around? _________________________________________

FireWorks and DreamWeaver are two of the top three reasons my desktop machine boots into Windows (98lite). Vector graphics make me very happy, and the integration with DreamWeaver (almost all the graphics work I do is for web stuff) makes me even more happy.
