first: sorry for my English!!!!!
I am "painting" funny Dogpictures and now i don't know which photoshop version is the best for me.
I also use Illustrator. Is Photoshop for Fotographs the right version for me?
You can see my pictures on www.rainbow-bridge-collection.com, so you may be see, what I need ;-)
You should avail yourself of the free 30 day trial to find out which version (Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, …) fits your needs.
You could also try Gimp which is freeware.
