    Why are many 'older and experienced' (as they say) such snobs about
    anything Adobe? Are they just pretending or what.
    I know of people that use PSP 8 to adjust jpgs so they can print using
    better software that CS5. I certainly do not use Adobe for PDF.

    The following is a serious sample from yahoo something:

    What an insult to Photoshop that people would suggest using Infranview or
    Faststone Photo Resizer or anything else other than PS.

    Why on earth did you buy a $500 program to resort to a free one?

    I'm shocked and embarrassed to say I am the list owner. I think I'll just
    turn off the computer and go get ready for the big game.

  2. infranview is pretty good actually, i know a few people who use it for
    basic manipulation. Personally i find ps slower and slower to boot up
    since cs3. SO if its only a quick edit you need they why not use
    simple quicker software

    i guess i am agreeing with the troll

    People are free to use whatever they want. Maybe Photoshop is too
    complicated to learn, or they think it is? I used to think that many years
    ago (I had Paint Shop Pro 7 at the time) but then kept trying PS (7) and got
    hooked on it. Now I have CS3 and tried the trial of the newer ones and I'm
    fine with what I have. I got it on ebay (new) last year for $86. Took me
    awhile of watching to get it, but I was determined. Now, to have enough time
    to learn what PS can do, it's never-ending surprises for me.

    I have CS3 and it is kind of slow to load but I am a plug-in junkie
    (LOL) I never paid much attention to bridge but did a tutorial about PS
    basics ( and learned about it and now use it a lot. I tried
    Infranview once, but remember it as being kind of slow and confusing. Maybe
    I have it confused with something else. I sometimes use Kodak EasyShare
    software (talk about slow, you have to select a picture, bring it up , click
    EDIT, every little step) I only use it for one thing, the "cartoon" effect
    which is pretty good (in the fun effects).
    I guess it's all what one is used to in a way.

    And you're free to be as stupid as you can be... Damn, you're almost
    You should have tried heroin, it would have made you smarter AND kept
    you out of the newsgroups.
    Which means you bought a pirate copy.
    So's the contents of your navel.

    I think you guys are mssing the point
    all that is mentioned are photo thumbnail viewers
    when someone downloads several pics, it is nice to
    be able to view and slightly edit them and delete unwanted pics
    when accomplished, then we go into photoshop and do final
    editing. throughout the years I have download thousand of
    fantasy pics from newsgroups. I will then modify, add, subtract
    parts for my entertainment. Also viewers are great for editing
    camera photos, meaning , delete the junk
    My favorite is acdsee pro5

    Aww, a name lame. How cute is that? Are you 12?!
    Why can't you write a proper sentence?
    My home's not mobile but thanks for projecting.
    They're beyond help... like you.

    By the way, the word 'void' appears nowhere in my nickname so not only
    can't you write you also can't read very well either.

    You are missing the point. Most are not Photoshop snobs, we just
    like the vast number of adjustments that Photoshop offers. That's not
    to say that PaintShop Pro isn't good editing software also, it's just
    that Photoshop offers more tools, that's all.
    I have IrfanView and Paintshop Pro, but I find that I always use
    PhotoShop to edit my pictures because I can do everything I need to do
    with PS. If I were to use different software, I might not be able to
    accomplish the same things.
    What you need to consider is that not everyone needs
    Photoshop...especially if they just want to make a few basic
    adjustments to a picture. Spending $600 for Photoshop to do some
    basic editing would be ridiculous, so you's be better to spend less
    and get Photoshop Elements or Paintshop Pro.(or go the free route and
    use IrfanView.)
    By the same token, if you had Photoshop and used it to do most of
    your more involved photo editing, I think that you'd see the
    shortcomings of any other program.
    As for the slow loading of Photoshop...well, I use PhotoShop CS3
    and it loads in 3 seconds.(I have hundreds of plugins too.) Then
    again, my computer is using an Intel 990X chip which has 6 cores
    running at 3.46 Ghz, and 24GB of DDR3 RAM running at 1333 Mhz, so I
    never have any problems with anything being slow.

    YOU'RE missing the point, troll bait.
    We who?
    Aren't you SPECIAL! Have a cookie! Have two! You deserve it!
    Or just shut the **** up already...
    It's really funny when people start rolling out their penis substitutes
    and measuring them publicly.

    Okay, I see what you mean. Infranview is good for this, though I think
    Bridge would be, too. At least for deleting ones unwanted from the start.
    Though don't know how much editing one can do with it, without opening PS
    or Raw. I'll have to check out acdsee pro 5 (ac-dc?)

    I have PS CS4, Elements 9, and Lightroom2. Still, my first
    run-through for downloaded images is in FastStone. The obvious misses
    are tagged, the images are sorted by tags, and all tagged images are
    deleted. The second run through is in FastStone using the compare
    images side-by-side to decide which of multiple shots of the same
    thing to keep.

    No editing of any kind is done in FastStone, though. That's done in
    CS4. I admittedly under-utilize Lightroom2 and use it just as a
    keyworded filing cabinet.

    No, you stupid douche, everyone didn't just spell it wrong to confuse
    you. For the love of the gods do the world a favor and drink bleach.

    I'm with you - I use a similar procedure with FastStone and now I can even
    do PSD files with it. Found a free plugin or prog. I have CS5 and
    budgets is not a problem. Some of the best things in life are free
