Hey,
I am also looking for a good program to make some graphics for my future widgets on. Im just a begainer so id like it to be not very much cost. Right now I'm using EazyDraw but the unlisenced version.


Thanks

The Gimp is definitely the best graphics tool for the price (some people think it's even better than Photoshop), but if you have $99 burning a hole in your pocket, consider buying a Wacom Graphire graphics tablet. The latest iteration comes bundled with Photoshop Elements 3, a version of Photoshop which has the advanced workflow and print media-specific features stripped out, and which normally costs $99 by itself. I've been using one of Wacom's 4x5" tablets for several years, and it's great for the sort of editing work that you do for widget design.

Elements..... Last time I checked you can't even use masks in elements. Something that I use a lot in widget making.
