Mandy, the other M would so understand this list better than I do. :) She's the techno-guru out of the two of us.

Thanks for stopping by Raven!

Nancy J. Bond Friday, March 23rd, 2007

A very impressive list of software!

spyscribbler Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

I just discovered Audacity this past week; a life-saver! I'm loving it!

Happy TT!

Michelle Pillow Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Happy T13! :)

She-Schenker Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Ouch! That made my brain hurt!

Happy TT...

Robyn Mills Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

I like to see what others use. I'm really basic with Adobe Photoshop 5. Love it and have with it.. don;t know enough about the others and too timid to try.

Barbara Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Oh, to be able to do that on the computer. I draw and oil paint, but I can't get the hang of it on the computer.

Check out my TT.

Kim Knox Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

#13 I can work with... just.


Shiloh Walker Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Man, that was the last thing I needed to see. I'm dying to learn how to do graphics and stuff. But the last thing I need is another addiction...uh, hobby.

Sybil Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Goodness. I admit I'm a little sad that paper and pencil are last on the list. I do understand though, I've never managed to create on paper what I could see in my head.

Mercy's Maid Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Sometimes I wish I knew a little more about the high-tech artsy stuff, but alas I don't. :) Thanks for stopping by my 13.

Amanda Young Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Impressive. I can barely figure out photoshop. :)

Mark Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

PJ & Mama Duck: I've used Photoshop and while I can use it I've never really gotten on with it as much as I get on with PSP. When I bought PSP it was a lot cheaper than Photoshop as well which probably helped. Thats why I use Expression rather than Illustrator too and Serif Page Plus rather than Acrobat Writer. I did just get Photoshop Elements but I've not really had time to get into it.

JennyMcB: I wanted to be an architect which would have ment being a good artist. I never quite managed to get the results I wanted with traditional media. I always ended up with too many smudges on my work that spoilt the final results. With computers my finger prints only end up on the work if I put them there myself.

Susan: I'm not a serious artist just my way of getting over work at the end of the day. I have done a small number of pieces that have been used for magazines and fliers but I'm far too slow to make my living making art :-)

busy91 Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Wooosh, all over my head! LOL! I do recognize some of that stuff, but not many. Thanks for stopping by my TT.

Coco Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

the only tool I used from this list is #13. Been using Photoshop and too lazy to learn new programs. Hahah :P

jean Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Looks like I have some learning to do.
You have added to my to-do list

Wylie Kinson Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

I'm embarrassed to admit that only #13 is familiar!

JennyMcB Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Were you always an artist before learning to use these programs? Do you use these for work or fun?

Neat list for 13.

Rashenbo Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Hehehe, I have no idea about this stuff... but some great links! :) Thanks for sharing.

Mama Duck Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Really?? I'm surprised you wouldn't go with Photoshop over PSP for that sort of work. Great list ;).

Janet Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

LOL at chelle y. I was going to say...oh it's like math, I don't get most of it! I've used Paint Shop Pro, tho, and of course, pencil & paper :-)

Susan Helene Gottfried Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Whoa. You are one serious artist, and I'm impressed.

Happy TT!

Thomma Lyn Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Neato! Sounds like you're well-versed in a lot of really powerful, excellent software! :)

Happy TT, and thanks for visiting my blog!

Chelle Y. Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Huh? You lost me at the header! LOL!

Happy TT!

PJ Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Interesting idea for a TT. I've only heard of Audacity, Paint Shop Pro and the last item. I check the others out. I mainly stick to the basics: Illustrator, Photoshop, Fireworks, Flash, etc.
