There is very little that cannot be done with photoshop


Photoshop has always being one of the best designing program and I recommend that the photoshop makers should come up with more photoshop programs. Thank you

I Need This Software

10Xara Designer Pro
Simply the best! One Program that does it all, graphics, Desktop publishing and WYSIWYG Website design that is by far the best there is.
Great program for experts and novices... All most perfect which leaves room for improvements and recommendations by users.
This can do everything photoshop, illustrator, dreamweaver, and of course Corel Draw combined can do. Everything is so simple, and smooth. You don't need a big built computer to keep it from stumbling or crashing.

The Contenders

11Wacom Tablets
