Photoshop is the only image editing package out there, right?
Yeah, there are other packages that come with your camera that let you rotate, crop and get the red out, but if you want to do some serious image work, you have to get Photoshop.
Well, actually, no. If you have read this column enough you have seen a number of reference to GIMP, the Open Source image editing package (poor man’s Photoshop?) that is becoming quite powerful. Some Photoshop scripts don’t transfer directly, but it’s really pretty good.
