MDI is <3

MDI is good for, e.g., a web browser or an IRC client. In an image editor it's restrictive; a flexible, sensible SDI as in GIMP is preferable.
Except I'm not too keen on GIMP's interface. :/

I have a (legit) copy of Adobe Creative Suite CS2. It's a $190.00 academic version which, unlike the $370.00 academic version, can only be purchased by students at (afaik) UT Austin.

Photoshop CS for me. I am a mainly graphical developer, so I need a lot of image modifications. Photoshop can help me make the designs I want

For a very simple job (like a screenshot) I use MS Paint since it loads quickly.
For everything else, I either use mainly GIMP or Paint.NET.
(Despite the fact that Paint.NET requires .NET Framework 2, it's still a super free imaging program.)
I do have a paid version of PSP 9 I use occasionally since it has a few features others don't.

Gimp, but I miss Photoshop badly. I used photoshop at my college's computers sometimes, it's way too expensive for me, even the academic version :cry:

The CS2 Suite is over $1,000 ... and the upgrade version is around $400. No way that price quoted above is right ... student discount or not. Are you sure you have the suite, i.e., InDesign CS2, GoLive CS2, Illustrator CS2???

Thanks,

Well also, some university students can use CS2 in the computer labs.. In one of the labs I use, we have a couple computers with CS2 and some more super expensive graphics software.. I don't even bother getting a really great photoshop-esque program to use at home usually, since I can use the lab 24/7 and I don't do graphics all that much anyway. But obviously this doesn't work for everyone.. 8)

The standard academic price is about $400 for CS2, but many larger universities work out special offers with companies like Apple, Microsoft, and Adobe in order to make software less expensive.

For instance, Windows XP Pro is normally $299. The academic price is around $100, and at some universities you can get it for as little as $25 per license.

At my university, Windows XP Pro is $7. I kid you not.

I'll give you a $100 if you get another copy of CS2 Suite for me from your family member who works for Adobe.

You wish :D

(Besides, she only gets one copy per suite, and I'm already in line for CS3 from her :D)
