I've been using Corel Draw and Corel PhotoPaint for more than 5 years now. At work, we recently acquired Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop (on the evil Mac computers). I'm having a horrible time adjusting. It seems that my Corel will do ten times more than Adobe and it's ten times easier to do. Perhaps I'm just not well enough acquainted with Adobe yet. I've heard nothing but glowing reviews from other friends--who've never been able to compare it to Corel. Is there anyone else out there with an opinion about this? Adobe's price tag is so much higher, I had thought it would be superior. If so, could someone recommend a good site or book about Photoshop besides the "wonderful" manual? Thanks.

Oh, and does anyone with professional experience have an opinion about Paint Shop Pro?
