    No, not really, you can edit pictures that are stored on your computer/the internet
    Photoshop CS3 is the newest (therefore more features), selling for about £150 on ebay
    I use photoshop CS2 which sells on ebay for around £110 on ebay
    The best thing to do is probably find a camera within your price range and then search google for reviews e.g. "Canon Ixus 65 review"
    The ability to edit/create pictures. It is a powerfull piece of sortware and takes time to get used to, there are hundreds of tutorials on the internet which can be found by searching google/yahoo
    Photoshop CS2
    • [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Intel Xeon, Xeon Dual, Intel Centrino, or Pentium III or 4 processor
    • [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Microsoft Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4, or Windows XP with Service Pack 1 or 2
    • [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]320MB of RAM (384MB recommended)
    • [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]650MB of available hard-disk space
    • [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]1,024x768 monitor resolution with 16-bit video card
    • [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]CD-ROM drive
    • [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Internet or phone connection required for product activation [/FONT]
    I am running this with an intel celeron 2.2Ghz CPU, 768mb RAM, 8mb onboard gfx and 1024x768 (32 bit) screen resolution

    Photoshop CS3
    • Intel® Pentium® 4, Intel Centrino®, Intel Xeon®, or Intel Core™ Duo (or compatible) processor
    • Microsoft® Windows® XP with Service Pack 2 or Windows Vista™ Home Premium, Business, Ultimate, or Enterprise (certified for 32-bit editions)
    • 512MB of RAM
    • 64MB of video RAM
    • 1GB of available hard-disk space (additional free space required during installation)
    • 1,024x768 monitor resolution with 16-bit video card
    • DVD-ROM drive
    • QuickTime 7 software required for multimedia features
    • Internet or phone connection required for product activation
    • Broadband Internet connection required for Adobe Stock Photos* and other services
    Edit: your poll should be more specific, you say "What is your favorite brand of electronics?"

    Different brands have different strong/weak points for example sony specialise more in phones than Linksys, but lynksis are more popular with network equipment so it depends what you are looking for

    For cameras i would say sony, canon or fujifilm
    Printers i would say canon or possibly HP

    Thank you. But how do you edit the poll. I have no idea of how to.
    Isn't their a software called "Photoshop CS3 Extended" from Adobe?
    Is it the same as the one you describe above the same as the one i said?
    Did you actually voted two times?

    I think only moderators of this section can edit polls
    From what i gather, CS3 extended has more features: http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/photoshopextended/

    under reasons to upgrade, the features with a * by the side are unique to cs3 extended

    Yes, this type of poll allows you to make multiple votes, I chose sony and cannon because they make good printers and cameras.

    What do you mean by, 'make it seem like a SLR pic? all those effects and such'?

    what? you can't get on adobe? that seems like a problem. maybe you can uses a convertor to convert to that type of file or just uses a camera software and it

    Can Photoshop be infected with Virus?

    I can't seem to believe it or not since everytime I try to edit a picture a different picture appear that is not even on my computer!!!!

    DevilsAdvocate Techie7 New Member

    In a word, yes. But highly unlikely if it is a kosher paid-for version.

    vom53 Established Techie7 Member

    THe problem is still on!

    Take it back and demand a refund. Or do a virus scan...

    I prefer electronics not in this poll. Mainly IBM and Panasonic. Kinda off topic but I dont't run any Windows based paid for Photo editing Software, since I don't run Windows. My software is, digicam, F spot foto manager, Gimp image editor, showfoto, Open Office org drawing, Xsane image scanner, Adobe 8 for Linux. Of course I am the only one that had to vote other.

    Just a small price to pay to run a virus free system.:scooter:
