    I was talking to a colleague and apparently there's a plugin for CS3/4 that cost £13,000 that does the same-thing but I'm very impressed. Unfortunately it's back to Paint.net for me.

    D'you mean how much does Photoshop cost or d'you mean how much are good alternatives to Photoshop? Photoshop CS4 is $699 USD directly from Adobe.

    Well that's the thing, I needed to know what he was asking. I haven't found a decent alternative, only free alternatives that are relatively good. Nothing can compare to Photoshop (for me).

    I'm not sure if you can buy much older versions, I was happy with 7 but when GPU acceleration came out and other such grand features I was gaggin' to get with new set it's just so expensive and I'm not a heavy photochop user to justify the purchase. Rather spend the money on hardware.

    That is awesome so much easier than doing all that manually.

    Still using CS3 extended.

    Latest version of Paintshop is pretty nice to work with actually, doesn't have this tech though :laugh:


    I'm impressed!

    May have to download the trial of CS5 when it comes out, see how effective it can be.

    Indeed.

    The price/value of something is determined by what people are willing to pay for it. There are plenty of reasons why people, especially enterprises, are willing to pay such a premium for Photoshop over all other alternatives.

    Using CS4 atm, but i definatly want this when it's out. That's an amazing tool. Like said before though, i wonder how it works on non-sample images.

    If it does work, AMAZING.

    are you kidding me? do you use photoshop much? this for me is reason to buy CS5. this one feature will save me hours or more a week - not to mention any number of other features they will include, if they've got something this advanced in there.

    that is awesome, thank you!

    Hence the $13K price tag of the presently available plug-in

    I'll stick with Corel unless my boss doubles my weekly paycheck. Only then, i could probably afford Adobe stuff.

    A colleague of mine has been using it at work and even though he hasn't mastered it yet, what he was showing me was mighty impressive.
