So - I trawled through Amazon to see what seems to be the most popular software and came up with this list. They are of varying degrees of sophistication and I haven't bothered to identify different versions as the list would have gone on forever. Also note that this is NOT about software for creating digital artwork per see - just about manipulating digital images derived from cameras or scanners to get a good image for posting on the internet to represent your art in the best way possible within your budget.
The options for manipulating digital images are:
- Adobe Photoshop
- Adobe Photoshop Elements (for PCs)
- Adobe Photoshop Elements (for Macs)
- Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
- Apple Aperture
- Apple iphoto
- Corel PaintShop Photo Pro
- Corel PaintShop Photo Express
- Corel Graphics Suite
- Windows Photo Gallery
- Another priced software
- Another free software
The poll closes on 31st March and the results will be posted later the same day.
Do please leave comments saying why you choose to use your preferred software
You can see other Making A Mark Polls - oriented towards art media, art practice and the art business - in The Making A Mark Poll - Resources for Artists. Alternatively check out the category label 'opinion poll' towards the bottom of the right hand column.
Note: The picture is the completed version of the one that didn't make it to the SBA submission. I think this one is going to be going to Southern California for an exhibition late this year.
