    I've only the time to reply a few posts... and I thought I should reply this one!

    If you're talking abt photo manipulation, it's most likely photoshop for most.

    BUT if you're talking abt general management for photos (one of the factors is programs handling RAW data files), then p.shop is too slow...

    Mac users use Aperture (powerful).
    PC users, depending on the make of their cameras, I guess. Nikon users are on View or there's one more by Adobe, but I just can't remember the name now...
    There's no bad camera, just a bad user

    I am a big fan of using the right tool for the right job. Photoshop is designed for still prints. When I am working on print graphics, I tend to use Photoshop. Paint Shop Pro is designed for still screen graphics and some vectorization. When I am working on still screen graphics, I tend to use Paint Shop Pro. For animation and simple 2d composites, I tend to use Bauhaus Software's Mirage; it is kind of like most image manipulation programs, but the layers have timelines attached and can be set to individual frame editing, it also has a wealth of compositing tools.

    That all being said, if you already have either Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro, go ahead and use the one you have for both if you don't feel like buying the other. They work, just not quite as well.

    Probably Photoshop, some houses will use customized software. Just note that even in other 'worlds', people will use Photoshop for things that it isn't meant to be used for, either due to budgetary reasons or simply because "everyone else does."

    A valid alternative

    My thoughts are, before you spend hundreds on photoshop or paint shop pro (whichever) You might be surprised with what you can get for free...

    the GIMP is just as powerful as photoshop But was released as open source software so it is also open to hundreds of innovative and useful add-ons that were made by fellow programmers for free!
    It works on Windows,Linux, and Macs.

    You'll have to see it to believe it : www.gimp.org

    I am 100 percent sure that you'll be surprised by it! I know I was (And now its all I use). Hope you check it out.

    The GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is nice and all, but I personally can't stand its interface. You could get "Photo GIMP" which is a modified interface for the GIMP to make it have a GUI like an older version of Photoshop.

    (Now it seems that Photo-GIMP has been renamed GIMPshop)

    It's a valid alternative though, don't be put off by it being free.

    Just TRY it before you go spending anything, there are plenty of pieces of freeware out there that can do what you ask easily, you just have to look and ask around...
