How can anyone think using PS is hard? If you play with it for a few hours you can do any of the major PS type stuff. Edit out people, copy things that shouldnt be copied into photos etc etc.
PS is the best when it comes to making purdy pictures and buttons and its layering is second to none in efficiency and ease of use. I mean its so easy to make BUTTONS with photoshop and the included imageready...ask me i like PS
