In order to perfect an image after scanning it onto the computer, what software program do you recommend using to finish final touches so it will look professional? [Confused]

I've been mostly using Paint Shop Pros 6 and 7, which are both commercial products and have been replaced by more modern versions of the same thing.

I use Photoshop CS but there is a latest version that I use in my class that is Photoshop CS3 (I think). Either way there are tools in that program that makes an image look very professional (like the illustrators and animators).

Gee, thanks you two. I'll look to see which program I like better. How much money do these programs usually cost?

Latest edition of Paint Shop Pro will run you up to about $100, though you can probably find it cheaper on Amazon or

I'm still using Paint Shop Pro version 5 that I got back in October of 1998. I only use it for photos and basic graphics and just never upgraded. It cost me about $90 from Comp USA. Can't believe I'm still using the same version.

Marianamersmurf, you can try something here for free and see if the results are professional enough for you:

pricelessware (free software w/ no spyware)

I've also used PhotoFiltre but I don't think it's listed at Pricelessware anymore (may no longer be available).
