A Random Pattern

A pretty (hot) tutorial and a question

I need to figure out how to do this sweet magic text effect with Paint Shop Pro.  Why Paint Shop Pro?  It’s what I have.  :) On that note, does anyone know a decent photo / paint tool on the Mac that’s also “entry” priced?  Because I won’t be shelling out the big bucks for Photoshop anytime soon.

    Gimp is a free, open-source “photoshop” clone. You’ll need X11 installed to run it, but it works really well.

    Depends on what you mean by “entry-level.” I would say Adobe Photoshop Essentials. It’s got most of the features of Photoshop but it’s only $99.

    I’ll give Seashore a try on the Mac – hadn’t thought of doing that. Thanks for the suggestion, Matthew.

    Kevin – I had a bad impression from Elements a while ago. I made the mistake of brushing Essentials off as something similar – I’ll have to give their low-end line another look.

    Thanks guys.
