    Hi,
    I have Microsoft Paint, can't afford Photoshop (used the free trial). I can do basically any graphic on Paint, I was wondering if there is any way to make money from designing on Paint?
    Also if anyone wants any logos, etc please contact me I will do it cheaper, due to the fact its on Paint, but I can ensure it will be to a very high standard.
    Best Regards,
    Kieron

    Ive got a feeling you may be in for a little rant.........

    First things - dont advertise your work/craft as:

    As firstly - if your able to offer a "very high standard" of work then you shouldnt charge more or less dependant on the programme it was made in. Secondly in some ways your putting all us other designers on the back foot ;)

    Oh, and as for desiging in Paint - I wouldnt do it...how are you going to add gradients for instant? Or add an outline to text or a shadow.........


    I'de have a look into using GIMP - a free program that can do enarly as much as Photoshop. Just google it (just for the record Im not joking!)

    Of course you could do what 90% of other young designers do and toddle over to a torrent client and (completely by accident of course) end up with a spanking new version of Creative Suite rather than that freeware program you obviously thought you were downloading. Then you think to yourself "right, I suppose now I've accidentally ended up with this it'd be a crying shame not to use it. I just need to make sure that as soon as I get a bit of money together I go out and buy the real thing."

    If you can't justify this to yourself ethically then hats off to you! You're a bigger man than I was when I first started out.

    Im not sure if you were aiming that at me as a 16 year old graphic designer with photoshop and illy cs3 (legit copies btw) but just for the record, I did a lot of research into downloading and using such illegal copies a while back and found out that adobe arent actually ully against it as they udnerstand young people cant afford legal version but know that thy will love it so much that they will eventually buy it.

    It's not what tools you use, it's what skills you have.

    true but even the most skilled worker can be limited if they use the wrong tools.
