We do have several girls on here who use Gimp and make fabulous siggies with it. Hopefully they will jump into this thread and tell you their thoughts about it.

If you have used PSP and know your way around it, it might be as well to stick with that program. You'll be able to download a 30 day trial on the PSP website - http://www.corel.com

Or then there's Photoshop. The full version is pricey but you can get a free 30 day trial from the Adobe site - http://www.adobe.com

Photoshop Elements is a reduced version of the program. Again we have quite a number of girls on here who use it and make wonderful siggies with it. You can also go for a 30 day trial from the Adobe site for that is you want to try it.

PSP no longer includes AS like before.
You need to purchase PSP&AS separately.
PSPX2 is most current of PSP by Corel.
AS is 39.00 or so I think.

You can make animated Siggies,Blinkies,Scrappy Style Sigs,Cards,Scrap Pages in PSE.

Price Wise PSE 6 or 7 will give you what you want.

I use GIMP and it's not that hard once you start navigating around.

I have never used anything else, but I use GIMP, and I love it! When I first started making sigs I researched how GIMP compared with the other programs and in everything I read, it was comparable in every way! HTH

By the way- I made you a sig on Signature Showcase, if you want to go pick it up!:)
