  • software help

    Hey guys i see alot of ya'll design your own logos, postcards, ads, etc. and was wondering what software do you use to do these things. I really want to do alot of my own designing but have no clue as to the actual software i need. i see there are several different softwares out there for these purposes but need help in deciding what software i will need. also where do they sell the software at pretty reasonable prices. i looked at some and the prices are outrageous. I did some flyers with microsoft works but really want something good to really make it look professional for my logo and stuff. any help is greatly appreciated thanks.

    If you get Microsoft Office, it comes with a program called Publisher that's pretty good. I use photoshop, but that's outrageously expensive if you want to buy it. (I didn't buy it )

      I have microsoft office but the version of publisher that came with it was a trial one and it has expired. I did not even know it was on here and my niece must have tried to use it for school and activated it and now it is expired. I looked at photoshop but it is a little too expensive for me to buy right now. But they say photoshop is a great program maybe later on i can get it.

              Gerald,

              Definitely check out OpenOffice.org, as Steve suggested.

              Also, for a GREAT, Photoshop alternative that comes at a FANTASTIC price....FREE....check out Paint.net. It's similar to Photoshop and comes with a bunch of plugins you can add to enhance it's capabilities. You can download it here:

                Hey Chestin...nice to see you on the boards...

                The best 'FREE' graphic editor I have ever used is GIMP.

                http://www.gimp.org/

                I bit of a learning curve...but easier than photoshop.

                    Well there is a document program in open office, can you click on create new document and see if you can create a simple document?
