So.  For about the last nine years, I've been using an ancient version of Photoshop for all of my digital artwork.  When I say ancient, I mean ancient: They're beyond the CS series now, and my version predates it.  I'm with 5.5 educational version, which came out back in the 90s.  I've contemplated an upgrade for a while now, and I think it's time to consider going for it.

I have a question for you, then... what should I replace it with?

Notably, should I keep on with Photoshop, or should I explore other options?  Of note, with some of my more recent artwork, I think that I may be better off switching to a vector program rather than raster, and Flash and Illustrator seem to be in the lead for that format.  What do you think, all two of you who still follow me on here?  New Photoshop, move on to Illustrator and Flash, or something else?

EDIT: Then I saw what the CC series actually entails.  Yeah... no.  Very no.  So, does anyone have a suggestion for an alternative to Adobe products?

I see you having a stirring conversation with you and yourself sir. Such eye opening statements! I can't help but feel jealousy at such stirring dialogue!

I make such good conversation that I confide in myself a lot, I find.

I've been... eh.  I find that I talk to myself more than I do other people, of late.  How have things been on your end?

At times good and at others feeling like I'm doing nothing but floating around. How about yourself, mister?

Good, bad, and ugly.  Same as usual, it seems.
