Subject: [Leica] [leica] Question! Here comes anudder one!

I got to thinking about Photoshop- I have been using the LE version that
came with my Digilux since the full version I tried absolutely boggled my
mind. I thought that when I had atteined membership into Mensa, lo those
many years ago, that I had proven that my intellect was at least capable of
understanding many of the things I might encounter.
Photoshop has turned into a humbling experience! YE GADS, AND LITTLE FISH
HOOKS! I am getting ready to take a "Photoshop for the Profoundly Impaired"-
perhaps I should get one of those little tags to hang on my rear view mirror
so I can park in 'Handicapped Only' parking!
I have been told that the COREL suite is much cheaper, and when I examined
it, it seems similar to PS, but it includes a color matching program
integral which does what some of these $400 dollar programs attempt to do-
and seems to make color output fairly well matched to WYSIWYG... at least
without the hardware type calibrators considered.
Have any of the LUG out there been using the COREL suite? Anyone willing to
admit it? Anyone who would consider recommending it over PS and perhaps why?
I am seriously leaning toward the COREL software as it is several hundred
dollars cheaper, and just as capable as Photoshop. Since I don't do this for
a living, it is attractive for those reasons.
Or, should I bite the bullet, and get the upgrade to Photoshop, The Whole
Magilla, which I can get for about $3-400 if my reading of the upgrade
agreement is correct.
