I'm looking for Image Editing software that allows me to do all the corrections that Photoshop offers (I'm currently using the Home Edition) and also will allow me to do text art (Word Art). Currently I'll pull my image into Photoshop, edit my image, save it, then open it in Microsoft Publisher (old version) and add Word Art, borders, etc. Then print from there. The only problem is that after I do all of that in Publisher, it won't allow me to save the entire file as a Jpeg. I would like to be able to save the entire file, word art and all as a jpeg image so that I can take it to my local photoprocessing store and have the image printed professionally, especially when I want to do poster size prints.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I'd also like to be able to do a photocollage of sorts on a 16x20or largerlayout with word-art or text graphics, then save the entire collage as ajpeg and have it printed at alocal photoprocessing store. Any suggestions from anyone would be greatly appreciated!

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Thanks!

Look into Paint Shop Pro by JASC (trial copy available free). It should do everything that you are looking for and it is very modestly priced. I've been using PSP since v7 and find its capabilities in photo editing (nearly) as capable as full-up Photo Shop and its web/pub art editing quite amazing.

"Best" is such a subjective concept that and I have limited personal experience wilth other photo editor/ art editor products that I leave you to draw your own qualitative conclusions.
