Paint Shop Pro vs. Photoshop

I would like to take a quick survey on what program between the two options everyone uses. Please give a short summary why you chose the program you did if you can.

...I think I know the outcome of this though...

I use Photoshop CS2. I found it more extensive with its features and whatnot.

I've seen some amazing things done in Paintshop, though.

I have used paintshop pro for years... I highly recommend it.

I recently got photoshop cs2 at work. It seems more difficult to learn than paintshop pro... it may be that I haven't found it line of thinking yet. It is definately a lot more expensive. I have picked up several books on its advanced features. I really havn't seen anything yet that I can't do in psp using different steps.

I have photoshop elements at home... never use it.

I would say, unless you need some specific featue of photoshop, save a bushel of money and go with psp.

Photoshop is superior to all raster-image editing and creating programs.

Blending options, brush dynamics, a whole shitload more that I should post to backup my argument but don't really feel like doing.

Oh yeah, and it's integrated with Wacom Tablets. Pressure sensitive.

It doesnt quite compete with photoshop though, but hell; it's nice using something that isn't pirated for once.

I use photoshop 7, because it's the one that I have.

Your survey needs a button that says "both" and or "others".

I use both in addition to pagemaker, MS paint, MS Picture It! Publishing, Bryce, MGI Photosuite, Imagemaker, and many others - it just depends on what I want to do with the image that I'm editing/creating.

I voted for photoshop though, just because it was the one I used more often of the two listed. I probably use Picture It! more than anything because it's incredibly fast at making good edits. When I want to take my time and be more serious I'll use the more intense programs, but Picture It! does a good job otherwise.

Don't forget to live before you die.

I've seen extremely good artwork made in Paint Shop Pro, but I'd have too give it to Photoshop for quality, ease of use, and amount of money ya can make off of it $$$$!

I've used both programs in the past, but now Photoshop is the only one of the two I use, I also use a small poorly programed app that produces stunning images called Ultimate Paint.

-However, I personally think that Bryce is the best 3D image creation program, and you can't beat it's low price of $80.

Bottom Line:
I don't have Bryce, but I've used it before and when I use it I'm quite satisfied- especially with the awesome looking clouds that it renders perfectly.

I've been using Paint Shop Pro 5 for YEARS. I didn't think anyone even knew what that was anymore. I've used both programs, and I still recommend Paint Shop Pro for beginners, and advanced users.

I don't now anything about PaintShop, but Photoshop is professional level photo manipulation software. I've used it since 1991 working as a graphic designer. There is nothing I haven't been able to accomplish with Photoshop. I have worked at countless companies, freelance contract, and all of the ad agencies and desk top publishing departments always used Photoshop.
