    Hi peeps

    I was wondering if any of you knoow any packages that would be good for designing, flyers,webpages,myspace layouts,general graphics,cd covers, promotional leaflets for tunes, and stuff of that type?

    would appreciate any reccomendations a mate is looking to spend about £250 if its possible to get anything decent for that.

    any suggestions appreciated as I know weve got a few successful designers on here already,

    ez

    B,

    Photoshop is standard although that is fairly expensive... but its standard.. I would save the other 100 ish and get that anything else is mickey mouse to be honest

    there is a programme called 'Gimp' i know some people use but generally the results arent that good.

    ive got photoshop cs3, but to be honest even if you just get photoshop 7 , youd be just fine. and that would def be the cheapest way as any adobe packages are expensive

    GIMP is pretty sick if you take the time to sit down and learn it. A little harder than photoshop but the workflow is the same and it is free.

    Then you can spend the £250 on weed for meditation and inspiration!
