    I've been using a very old version of Photoshop for the last few years & am thinking about upgrading to Photoshop CS. However, the price is somewhat steep. So I thinking of migrating to CorelDraw, a software which I've never used before. Can someone here, briefly outline the cost & benefits of using CorelDraw vis-a-vis Photoshop? I'm trying to cut cost in this recession. Thanks.

    I don't know anything about CoralDraw but have you considered Photoshop Elements? About $80

    Years ago I was using both Corel and PS. I found the Corel menus more intuitive, so eventually gave up on PS and now use only Corel Photo-Paint 12. But I have not looked into the current versions by either company. If forced to replace these old editors with something current, I would be tempted to look into Serif's PhotoPlus X2. Amazon and other online outfits list their CDs for as low as $56 (MSRP is $80).

    corel draw and photoshop are both good photo editors but photoshop has more plug-in support than corel draw

    For me, one of the most important thing is to be able to insert watermarks onto the pix. It's one of the copyright things I need for certain work I've to do. I was unable to do that with Irfan View. It's a very good software though & it's free.
