    I will use it for some basic stuff, such as creating a navigation bar and a logo. Im gonna create a website for a hobby I have, so I don't really need anything that is top-of-the-line, just something that will get the job done.

    Anybody know a decent graphic editor for $60 (and which can make navigation bars)?

    The main thing I will use it for is too create a navigation bar.

    Is Paint Shop Pro 6 really worth the $100?

    Yeah, Paint Shop Pro is the best low cost graphics editor. Definitely not as good as Adobe Photoshop ($600), but for what you need it will definitely suffice.

    You should also check out http://www.gimp.org - a free graphics editor.

    Paint Shop Pro 7 is definately the way to go.

    Gimp is probably just as good for your needs, but as far as I know it's only available for Linux/Unix.

    Gimp does have a Win32 version.

    You can check it out at:

    Free is always a good price

    Try looking in the classifieds section of your newspaper. I just looked today and saw Photoshop 5.5 for $20 and PSP7 for $15. Not bad!

    Hi,

    You could try going to http://www.xara.com

    They do a program called Xara Webstyle for $69 and you can download a free trial from the site to see if you like it.

    I make most of my web graphics and logos with Xara X, but that's nearer the $150 mark and is for more than just web graphics.

    Paint Shop Pro 7 is a great program...download the trial version and you'll get to use it for 60 days or so. Yeah, it's a $100 if you buy from them....or you could get a copy off Ebay (they're selling for around $50-$60 now).

    Keep an eye out on JASC's site...sometimes they will run a special right before they release a new version....I purchased version 6 for a reduced price and got version 7 for free (had to pay shipping though)

    Ulead Photoimpact 6 does everything you could want; rated at same level as PSP 7 in most mags I've read - but cheaper. What you do is get a cover disc with Photoimpact 3 on and upgrad from there. I paid 35, got a brillian manual as well.

    ...for the same $100 you can get Micrografx Picture Publisher which considers standard that which Adobe calls plug-ins...free with any Matrox product...and totally office compatible...it has never gotten the recognition is so justly deserves

    ...and it makes buttons, bars and templates with just a click.
