Looking for suggestions on choosing graphic designing software

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Hi guys I need your help,

I am managing one of the websites which is related to my business.For that I am using Adobe Photoshop to create graphics and for managing new letters. I think it is not the perfect program, but I am very happy to use and I can afford it easily. But I am not a programmer or graphic designer. I look after all the required content and I would like to show up more graphics on my website.

Can somebody advice on which software is best either Adobe Photoshop or illustrator? My opinion is Photoshop is good because I know that and used it. But I heard that only experts use Illustrator. Can somebody choose one of the best program and version for me? Thanks a lot in advance and regards.

Adobe Photoshop is a good starting program for anybody interested in graphic designing.

Also, there are other alternatives that can do the same job as Photoshop, or even more:

1. Xara : the features that this program offers are immense; take for example the integrated photo tool, photo panoramas, drawing tools, advanced text handling, creative effect, blends, 3D extrude effects, animated flash support, blends, shadows, bevels, contours, solid object editing, direct action tools, and the list goes on. It offers the same things as Photoshop, and even more than that.

2. Corel Draw Graphics Suite X7 : a direct competitor to the Photoshop family. It offers vector illustration and page layout, easy website design, professional photo editing and even a versatile drawing and tracing tool. It also offers an advanced workspace predefined with tools available to help you keep your elements organized and easily accessible.  A total control over fills and transparency is offered with a very powerful fill engine, giving you control over bitmap pattern and vector pattern fills.
