> Sandra, et. al.:
> I use PhotoShop extensively with high school students. It is so far the
> best, but pretty pricey. Be sure to check education only vendors because
> they can be considerebly less money than the big slick Mc or PC Warehouse
> type magazines. Look into PhotoShop LE which is a lite version bundled
> often with scanners that offer basic manipulations. Another great option is
> Macromedia's FreeHand 8 Graphics Suite. For the price of PhotoShop you get
> a bezier-based design program (MUCH better than Corel!!), font creation,
> 3-D modeling, a photo program called xRes, and HTML converters. They all
> work back and forth well and can do some incredible print and design work.
