Monopoly look for more money

Right now, if you don't like a Creative Cloud price hike you can leave and buy boxed.

When its either pay us or loose your livelihood. I don't think the CC deal will be quite so good.

When Quark was number one, it took bundling by Adobe, better pricing (Creative Suite Vs just one Application) and a better application to beat it.

Right now I can just about see GIMP getting as good as Photoshop Elements. As a host for a wide range of filters its pretty good, its interface is better than before, but I would still rather not use it.

To be honest I am far more intrigued by Krita. It runs horribly under Windows, but quite nicely on my wee KDE laptop.

It's also possible for Calligra (the KDE suite of which Krita is a part) to get ported to Haiku - I know they had a KOffice port at one point.

What about Paintshop Pro? And are there any decent alternatives to Dreamweaver, that don't involve doing complex CSS layouts with a text editor?

WorknMan,

"What about Paintshop Pro? And are there any decent alternatives to Dreamweaver, that don't involve doing complex CSS layouts with a text editor?"

Funny you should mention PSP, I used and prefer it to Photoshop. I found the multi-mouse-button support to be far superior in PSP. In photoshop it seemed like they designed it for use on a one button mac, which was lame as a windows user.

IMHO PSP got worse after it shifted hands. The Jasc versions were better than Correl's, which wasn't even very stable. I don't know how it ultimately panned out because I don't do graphic editing on windows any more.

Use a Grid System for your CSS. It greatly simplifies things. Or one of the CSS frameworks like Initialzr or BootStrap.
