Choose a Web graphics program 
  
Adobe Photoshop 
Photoshop is the standard for creating 
Web graphics. It is the most widely-used 
Web graphics program, and its latest 
version (6; $609) includes a variety of 
Web-oriented features. Geared towards 
professional graphic designers, its 
capabilities are overkill for creating and 
formatting basic Web graphics. For basic 
Web work, Photoshop LE, a limited 
version, does a fine job. Also, the LE 
  version costs less than $100. 
JASC Paint Shop Pro 
Paint Shop Pro (version 7; $99) does most 
of the things Photoshop can do, but costs 
under $100. Its low price and relatively 
uncomplicated interface have led many 
site-builders to use it for adding graphics 
to sites.  
Macromedia Fireworks 
Fireworks (version 4; $199) is a 
purpose-built Web graphics program, 
with a sophisticated interface similar 
to Photoshop s. It has extensive 
drawing capabilities, and works well 
in both creative and basic Web 
graphics applications.
