I have talked to some devs and alot of them find image editing material far to exspensive.
People are frequently asking what image editing to use for their games.
The responce is usually adobe photoshop which costs arround $600
usually people respond to the price by pirating
The site below sells photoshop cs2 9.0 for $70
I was so impressed I thought I'd pass the word arround. :mrgreen:
