Photography Question

Photo Software


I have noticed that a lot of people use PS7 to fix up their photos, I'd really like to try this program. Can someone help me out by sending a link of a good place to get a trial version. Thanks.

  I think PS7 is Photoshop 7 and PSP is Paint Shop Pro from what I've seen.

  Thanks for the links and for all the help everyone. Looks like the trial is out for me though, the file is to large for me to download on my dialup. I'll figure something out though. :)

Lewis Kemper   Here is the link for the tryout version of Photoshop CS. Since Photoshop 7 is no longer the current product, there is no link available. Besides, there are so many great changes in CS that I recommend you use it!

If you want to learn how to use it sign up for my classes here at BetterPhoto.

  Thanks for the link. I have been working on the download, seems like it's taking forever with this slow dialup.

  Photoshop Elements is very user friendly (and 1/8th the price of the full Photoshop). It might be worth taking a look at. I know many people on this site use it.

I haven't tried any (I use the manual that comes with the book and I bought a book). But now maybe I'll check these out...
Have fun!

Levi Wardell   Okay, so call me the black sheep of the bunch, but I am not a big fan of photoshop. Instead, I use macromedia's Fireworks. The ability to resize is MUCH easier, the affects are, in my humble opinion, a little better and it was easier to learn how to use.

  Thanks for the tip. I have never heard of this one. I'll do a search and check it out. Paint Shop Pro 7 has been my editing program for a few years now, just trying to branch out. :)

Steven Butterworth   If anyone is using a Mac or Linux - GIMP is for me equally as good as either Photoshop or PaintShop.
