I use Paint Shop Pro.
Or GIMP, that's free: https://www.gimp.org/

Same here, except that it's not bound to banners only, but graphics in general. I use PSP 9 for 10+ years already and GIMP for 4+ years. I have no idea about how good recent versions of PaintShop Pro are, tho - I just rarily missed anything in the old version.

Paint.NET (free) can handle most jobs including transparency.

I'm not so great at graphics design, so have used pixlr over the years - it does what I need it for, but I might download GIMP again soon, as I have some banners/ranks/images to design :roll:

GIMP for Photoshop-style work and Inkscape for Illustrator replicas.

Depends on what I want to do.
- PhotoFiltre 7 http://www.photofiltre-studio.com/pf7-en.htm
- Inkscape
- Power Point (especially for geometric images this works quite well. Or if you want to change something in an existing picture, where certain points have to be at the same place)
- Photo Scape (There it has many frames and Borders and other picture effects. The filter Vigniette with 10 possibilities, is sometimes also quite useful. With a few frames you can also create elevated buttons for the forum style)
- Gimp (But I haven't quite got it under control yet. :oops: )
- quite rare paint.net
- Pixilion Bildkonverter (to compress the pictures)

I would like to have Corel Draw but it is too expensive for me. In former times I had always used this program.

Where can you find someone who can do it for compensation?

I tried gimp some years ago, but switched to PS CS2. It may be old version, but i can do anything i need with that program. But yeah.. gimp is pretty good as well and is free.

I'm so good at these things that I usually just use online graphics editors and hope to achieve something more or less near what I hoped for.
Failing that I can always revert to colouring pencils and a camera.
In the end I just rip something from somewhere and hope nobody notices ;)
Seriously the only program I have used for graphics(editing) must be Irfanview (that should make it clear how illiterate I am in this matter :roll: ).

I'm using canva for this purpose, it's free and works well. It also has a lot of royalty free things that can be used. I noticed nobody else mentioned it, is there maybe a reason for this? Now I'm a bit worried and thinking if I should change for some reason I might not know?

For me reason would be: it's only a website, not an application.

If it works for you and does what you want then I can see no reason why you should change.
